Report: Iran, Hezbollah terror threat rising

Iran's elite Quds Force and Hezbollah militants are learning from a series of botched terror attacks over the past two years and pose a growing threat to the US and other Western targets as well as Israel, a prominent counterterrorism expert says.


Operating both independently and together, the militant groups are escalating their activities around the world, fueling worries in the US that they increasingly have the ability and the willingness to attack the US, according to a report by Matthew Levitt of the Washington Institute for Near East Studies.
