The United States, in a joint action with its Persian Gulf Arab allies, has imposed a new round of "terrorism-related" sanctions on the leadership of Lebanon's Hezbollah resistance movement, citing the group's involvement with Iran.
"The US Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) in partnership with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the co-chair of the Terrorist Financing Targeting Center (TFTC), and the other TFTC member states - the Kingdom of Bahrain, the State of Kuwait, the Sultanate of Oman, the State of Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) - designated members of Hezbollah's Shura Council, the primary decision-making body of Hezballah", the press release said. He is the current leader of the Judicial Council and has overseen a military command in central Lebanon that provides logistical and training support to "Hezbollah". In addition, the sanctions reject the "false distinction" between the group's political and military wings.
"The TFTC again demonstrated its great value to global security by disrupting Iran and Hezbollah's destabilizing influence in the region", said US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin in a statement.

Hezbollah, which was founded after the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982 and is classified as a terrorist organization by the USA, has faced off with Israel across the decades, including in a month-long war in 2006.
