EU TO BLACKLIST HEZBOLLAH

Muslim World

EU foreign ministers are likely to put the military wing of Lebanon’s Hezbollah group on their blacklist of terror groups, EU diplomatic sources said on 19 July as the Lebanese government warned against such a step. “There are still some reservations... but we are moving toward a decision on listing Hezbollah’s military wing,” a senior EU official said ahead of a meeting of all 28 EU foreign ministers on 22 July.

The move was justified by Hezbollah’s involvement in an attack against Israeli tourists in Bulgaria last year and its activities in Cyprus, the official said, but would “not impact current EU policy and engagement with Lebanon.” The official, who asked not to be named, also stressed that the military wing alone would be targeted and not Hezbollah’s political organisation which is a major force in the country and was part of the outgoing Lebanese government.
