An operative for the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group was sentenced to 40 years in prison on Tuesday for engaging in covert operations in the United States aimed at committing terror attacks, the Department of Justice announced.

Ali Kourani, a 35-year-old man born in Lebanon, Hezbollah's primary operational hub, was convicted of acting as a terrorist planner for the Islamic Jihad Organization, a unit of Hezbollah. In this role, Kourani scoped out potential sites for a terror attack in and around New York City, including critical infrastructure, federal buildings, daycares, and airports.

Kourani's prison sentence underscores the seriousness of his crimes and the continuing threat of terrorism in the American homeland, according to the FBI and DOJ.
