The US Department of Treasury announced that it has put three individuals and 12 entities on its so-called terrorists list over their cooperation with Lebanese Hezbollah.
The US Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced on Wednesday in a statement that three individuals, as well as 12 Lebanon-based entities, have been added to its terror sanctions lists over their relationship with Hezbollah.
The US Treasury Department named Sheikh Yusuf Aasi, and Jawad Nur-al-Din as the Lebanese citizens on its so-called Global Terrorist list.
The US government has sanctioned individuals and entities associated with Lebanese Hezbollah in separate times, yet Hezbollah has a high place among the Lebanese people government.
Washington plans to reduce Hezbollah’s popularity in Lebanon by putting Hezbollah-linked banks and individuals on its sanctions list.
