UNITED NATIONS - At a UN Security Council discussion on the protection of civilians in armed conflict, Israel's ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor on Tuesday renewed his call for Hezbollah to be designated a terrorist organization by the European Union, as it has been categorized by the United States.
