BEIRUT - Lebanon's armed Shi'ite Hezbollah movement on Thursday said a decision by Gulf States to designate it a terrorist organization was "reckless and hostile".

The six-member Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) took the step on Wednesday, opening up the possibility of further sanctions against Hezbollah, which wields broad political influence in Lebanon and is fighting in Syria for President Bashar Assad.

The group's bloc in parliament said it held Saudi Arabia responsible for the GCC decision.
