The US has blacklisted three Hezbollah operatives, including the two prime suspects in the 2012 bus bombing attack that killed five Israelis and a local bus driver in the Bulgarian town of Burgas, the State Department announced Tuesday.

The State Department listed as "Specially Designated Global Terrorists" Meliad Farah and Hassan el-Hajj Hassan, who Bulgaria identified in July 2013 as the key suspects in the bombing attributed to the Lebanese Shi'ite organization.

Along with the two who are believed to be in Lebanon, the US has also placed Hezbollah member Hussein Atris on the specially designated terror list, due to his connection to an alleged terror attack plot in Bangkok in 2012.
