At a correspondence session today, the government adopted a decision to treat the Hezbollah movement as a criminal and terrorist organization that is a threat to peace and security.
Hezbollah’s activities are intertwined with organized crime and the conduct of terrorist or paramilitary activities on a global scale, the government said.
Several countries, including Israel and the United States, have listed the Shiite movement Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.
In 2013, the EU included the armed wing of the movement on the list of terrorist organizations. Among the members, it was included in the terrorist list by the Netherlands and Germany, among others.
