Breaking: Hezbullah tried to assassinate Barak

YNet is reporting that Hezbullah attempted to assassinate Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak in Singapore this week.
Kuwait's Al-Jarida newspaper reported Thursday that Israel was able to prevent an assassination attempt on Defense Minister Ehud Barak, during his visit to Singapore this week.

According to the report, the Mossad – collaborating with local authorities – was able to stop the assassins, who planned on targeting Barak during his visit to the Singapore Air Show.

The newspaper based its report on "high ranking Israeli defense officials."

Al-Jarida went on to quote the sources as saying that prior to Barak's visit, the Israeli intelligence agency contacts Singapore authorities and gave them "highly classified information suggesting a cell comprising of Iranian and Hezbollah operatives were planning to assassinate the Israeli defense minister."

A covert operation based on the information resulted in the arrest of three suspects.
The assassination was to take place in Barak's hotel room. Hmmm.
