Israel’s Mossad spy agency shares information to Germany on Hezbollah’s activities on its soil, ahead of the country to outlaw the actions of the Lebanese terror group, N12 News reported Saturday.

On Thursday, the German government proscribed the entirety of the Iranian-backed group Hezbollah as a “Shi’ite terrorist organization,” banning both their political and military wings from operating on its soil. The German police and special forces raid mosques across the country searching for members of the Hezbollah organization.

The TV report added that Israel collected data, explicit evidence, and proven legal involvement, included Hezbollah’s cash network, worth millions of dollars, and helped locate ammunition depots in Germany.  The Mossad presented its findings to German intelligence and law agencies.
