EU: Considering putting Hezbollah on terror list

May 5, 2013 02:25

Hezbollah’s involvement in Syria might be the last straw that pushes the European Union to put the group on its terrorism list, European diplomatic sources told the London-based daily Asharq Al-Awsat on Friday.

A recent speech by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah’s and possible evidence from last July’s bombing of Israelis in Bulgaria were sighted as reasons contributing to the possible move by the EU, the report said.

The Europeans are considering three options – First, to sanction individuals from the organization by stopping their funds and not allowing them to enter the EU. Second, banning the military wing of the organization as it does with Hamas and third, which is the option favored by the United States and Israel, putting the entire organization on the terror list.
