    Mohammed Amadar, a Lebanese citizen with alleged ties to the Hezbollah terrorist organization, was arrested in Lima, Peru, earlier this week for allegedly planning a terrorist attack in the country.

    Amadar, 28, was arrested on a Lima street by members of the Peruvian police’s anti-terrorism unit on Tuesday and his remand was extended by a special court for organized crime and terrorism. He has been interrogated since his arrest and is suspected of laying the groundwork for a terrorist attack, possibly against Jewish targets.

    Police also found traces of TNT, detonators and other explosive substances in the house where he was living. Searching the garbage outside his home, agents found chemicals used to construct explosive devices, along with mobile phones and memory cards.

    According to the Peruvian Defense Ministry, Amadar was arrested after the Mossad informed local authorities about his arrival in Peru and his intentions.

    The local media reported that Amadar, who had resided in Peru in the past, returned to the country for a second time in July on a flight from Brazil. He was married to a Peruvian national with dual American citizenship, who resides the majority of the time in Florida. Further inspections into Amadar’s identity revealed he was actually born in Sierra Leone, in Africa. He is not a Spanish speaker and his interrogation is being conducted via an interpreter. Amadar has denied the allegations against him.

    Israel’s Foreign Ministry declined to officially comment on the incident, but a ministry official did say that security at Jewish and Israeli sites, among them the Chabad houses, had been increased recently.

    One Chabad House employee said they trusted the local authorities to protect them and were not concerned, but added, “With that, there is a high level of alert and caution over things happening around us.”
