Hezbollah in Kuwait, Experts in Expslosives

So I missed one news snippet regarding terrorism in Kuwait. Just saw the following today from The Arab Times.

When I went to Lebanon, vendors were trying to sell me Hezbollah t-shirts. I really wanted to get one as  an unbelievable souvenir, but my boyfriend said the money would most likely go to funding them. So I didn't buy it.

I'm telling you though, Kuwait is a sleeping giant.

‘4,500 Hezbollah Members In Gulf States’‘Agents Trained In Explosives’
KUWAIT CITY, June 18:  Around 4,500 Hezbollah members and agents have entered some Gulf nations to implement the destructive plans of the group and instigate chaos in the region, reports Al-Seyassah daily quoting researcher on issues concerning Iran, al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, Aisha Al-Rashed.
In a recent press statement, Al-Rashed alleged the Hezbollah members and agents in certain GCC nations have been trained on explosives, weapons and communication gadgets in Iran.  She said they have entered Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on forged Lebanese, Syrian, Jordanian, Moroccan and Egyptian passports, while others used the Iraqi borders to infiltrate to Kuwait and western part of Saudi Arabia. 

She warned the most targeted GCC countries are Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, claiming most of the Hezbollah agents are currently operating in these nations.  She added there are 50 agents in Kuwait and 40 in the UAE stationed near the diplomatic and economic missions, as well as the vibrant sectors like the oil installations.
