Sanctions imposed by the U.S. and Gulf countries against the leadership of the terrorist group "Hezbollah" are the "right step".
Hassan Nasrallah was sanctioned for acting on behalf of Hezbollah, which he has led since 1992, the Treasury Department said Wednesday.
"Under the dictates of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force (IRGC-QF), Secretary General and head of the Shura Council Hassan Nasrallah is prolonging the human suffering in Syria, fueling the violence in Iraq and Yemen, putting the Lebanese state and the Lebanese people at risk, and destabilizing the entire region". In addition, the sanctions reject the "false distinction" between the group's political and military wings.
At the same time, the six Gulf members of the TFTC - Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates - declared sanctions on another nine individuals and firms part of or linked to Hezbollah that were already blacklisted by the US Treasury.
"OFAC, together with Gulf partners, designated Hasan Nasrallah, the Secretary General of Hizballah".
The latest U.S. sanctions came one day after the Treasury Department slapped sanctions on governor of Iran's Central Bank Valiollah Seif, alleging it had funneled funds to Hezbollah.
This is the second TFTC sanction action since the center was announced on May 21, 2017.
"The TFTC again demonstrated its great value to global security by disrupting Iran and Hezbollah's destabilizing influence in the region", said US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin in a statement.
Meanwhile, the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem has enraged the Palestinian Authority, as well as militant group Hamaz, which has ties to Iran and Hezbollah.
It was the third round of sanctions announced by Washington since the United States pulled out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in defiance of worldwide warnings for the White House not to harm the landmark agreement.
These designations follow U.S President Trump's decision last week to cease US participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and to begin reimposing USA nuclear-related sanctions on the Iranian regime.
Previously, Sheikh Naim Qassem said that Hezbollah would shield Lebanon from any schemes to "subordinate Lebanon [to foreigners]", adding that the United States and Israel "spare no efforts to attack Lebanon and impose sanctions" on the Shia organization.
