According to the official, Kais Obeid, the man who kidnapped Israeli businessman Elhanan Tennenbaum to Lebanon [Tennenbaum was returned in a prisoner exchange in 2004], is coordinating the recruitment efforts. The official said that Obeid has recently started contacting dozens of young adults in the West Bank in order to recruit them to Hizbullah's ranks.

The PA [Palestinian Authority] estimates that the growing tensions within Lebanon, the increasing pressure on Iran and the renewal of direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians have all increased the organization's motivation to claim a stake in the Palestinian territories. However, the source emphasized that the arrested suspects are thought to be low-level operatives with no real connection with the organization.

Hizbullah has made continual attempts in recent years to gain a foothold in the Palestinian arena. A senior Israel Defense Forces (IDF) official said in the past that the organization is interested in violating the calm in Israel and carrying out terrorist attacks while heavily compensating others for their involvement in them.
