CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak issued an order for full closure of areas under Palestinian Authority (PA)control at midnight Tuesday.
Israel Defense Forces (IDF) troops along the northern border are on high alert ahead of the three-day Purim holiday.
Israeli intelligence gathering confirms that Hezbollah, headquartered in Lebanon, is coordinating revenge attacks against Israel and Jewish institutions abroad with the Syrian and Iranian governments.
Some analysts believe that Hezbollah plans to pull off a big enough terror attack to cause Israel to think twice before planning future undercover operations against their terror leadership.
The 40-day mourning period for Hezbollah commander Imad Mugniyeh, killed when a bomb decimated his car on February 12, ends Sunday, March 22, the last day of the Purim holiday, which in past years has been a favorite time for terrorists to target Jews.
