DOJ: Two U.S. Citizens Arrested for Ties to Hezbollah

Two naturalized U.S. citizens have been arrested on charges related to activities on behalf of Hezbollah, a designated terrorist organization based in Lebanon.

Ali Kourani, 32, of the Bronx, N.Y. and Samer el Debek, 37, of Dearborn, Mich. were arrested on June 1, according to a Justice Department press release sent out Thursday.

Both men were “recruited as Hizballah operatives” and “allegedly received military-style training, including in the use of weapons like rocket-propelled grenade launchers and machine guns for use in support of the group’s terrorist mission,” according to Joon H. Kim, acting U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.
