Egyptian security sources said Monday that the pro-Hezbollah cell arrested recently will be referred to court soon after investigations have been completed.
The sources, meanwhile, noted that Naser Abu Omaira, the second defendant, confessed that he was planning to train Palestinian military groups to carry out attacks against Israeli targets.
However, the defendants denied allegations over their intentions to launch attacks in Egypt, according to the sources.
Hezbollah Secretary General sheikh Hassan Nasrallah had admitted that one of the arrested in Egypt is a Hezbollah member named Sami Shehab, who was helping the Palestinians transmit food and equipment into Gaza through the Egyptian-Palestinian borders. He, however, denied any Hezbollah ploy to carry out attacks in Egypt.
The Egyptian Police found explosives at the possession of some defendants, it was reported.
