GCC designates Hezbollah a ‘terrorist’ organization


Qatar has joined its five Gulf peers in classifying Lebanon-based political group Hezbollah and all affiliated bodies as terrorist groups, QNA reports.

Hezbollah has a militant wing, and in a statement, GCC Secretary General Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani said the new designation was “due to hostile acts” carried out by its militia in Syria, Yemen and Iraq that included “recruiting youths of the GCC countries to carry out terrorist acts, smuggling of arms and explosives, inciting sedition and provoking chaos and violence in a blatant violation of their (GCC states’) sovereignty, security and independence.”
