Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon welcomed the EU's decision to blacklist Hezbollah  on Monday.

"This is an important step, and it's good that there is an agreement among European countries on the issue. Hezbollah is a dangerous, uncurbed terrorist organization, which has not hesitated in the past and won't hesitate in the future to carry out bombing attacks across Europe in the service, training and funding of Iran," the defense minister said.

"Tightening the ring around it will enable an increase in intelligence cooperation between countries against Hezbollah, and will improve the fight against the organization and its emissaries," Ya'alon said.

"The fight against Hezbollah must be consistent, determined, and uncompromising," he said adding that "steps of the kind taken today in the EU will assist this."
