Yesh Atid MK Yaakov Peri used his Facebook account on Monday to praise the European Union’s decision to add Hezbollah’s military wing to the list of recognized terrorist organizations.

“Finally, after perpetrating countless terrorist attacks in Israel and abroad, including the abduction of soldiers and civilians, the European Union has saw fit to declare the military wing of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization,” said Peri, who also served as the head of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet).

“As someone who has spent most of his adult life fighting murderous terrorism, including that of Hezbollah, I believe that this is a genuine contribution to strengthening international cooperation in the war against all terror groups of their kind.”
