Nasarallah captains A-team of terrorists

Manama : Bahrain yesterday placed Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, his deputy Naim Qassim and eight other individuals along with four entities, all members of the Shura Council of the Lebanese militia, on its terror list.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the designation was part of Bahrain’s continuous efforts to combat all forms of violence, extremism and terrorism and to confront all those who finance or support it.

The efforts are in co-operation with the US and Saudi Arabia, which co-chair the Terrorist Financing Targeting Centre (TFTC) comprising Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and the UAE, the ministry pointed out.

Under the decision, approved by the Cabinet on Monday, sanctions will be imposed on these individuals and entities, including freezing assets and barring citizens and residents in the Kingdom from dealing with them.

Foreign Minister Shaikh Khalid Bin Ahmad Al Khalifa affirmed Bahrain’s commitment to working collectively and effectively with all brothers and allies in the face of terrorism and drying its sources of funding.

“The designation of these individuals and entities comes as part of Bahrain’s continuous efforts to combat violence, extremism and terrorism, and to expand cooperation and coordination with all efforts aimed at eradicating this dangerous scourge that threatens the security and stability of the world,” Shaikh Khalid said.

The Foreign Minister urged the international community “to intensify efforts to eliminate all sources of support provided by Iran to terrorism and terrorist militias such as Hezbollah, which aims at spreading chaos and strife and seeks to undermine security and peace in the region and the world.”
