BERLIN – After Bulgaria’s interior minister said last week that Hezbollah operatives were involved in last year’s deadly terror attack on the European country’s soil, a number of German politicians have called for a ban of the Lebanese terrorist group.

The July bombing of an Israeli tour bus in Burgas caused the deaths of five passengers and their Bulgarian bus driver. Over 30 Israelis sustained injuries.

“Hezbollah belongs on the EU terror list,” said Elmar Brok of the conservative Christian Democratic Union and chairman of the European parliament’s foreign affairs committee. He was quoted in the Hamburger Abendblatt paper, along with leading German expert on terrorism Dr. Guido Steinberg.
