Israel has charged eight Israeli-Arab citizens were charged with smuggling explosives into the country for Hezbollah.

The residents of Nazareth and Ghajar, which is located half in Israel and half in Lebanon, were charged Wednesday in Nazareth District Court with smuggling nearly 45 pounds of explosives into Israel in June. They were arrested in July.

Israel’s Shin Bet security service said the explosives could have set off “a wave of serious terrorist attacks in Israel,” Reuters reported.

The operation would have needed approval from Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, the Shin Bet said, according to The Jerusalem Post.
