It is shameful and strategically incompetent not to ban Hezbollah in its entirety. And it is the height of folly to continue supporting the Lebanese military when it collaborates so closely with Hezbollah.
An intra-Labour Party fight erupted Tuesday in the Parliament after the House of Commons voted to ban all branches of the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah from the United Kingdom.

The Trump administration disclosed that Iran is behind the construction of several underground tunnels leading into Israel that Hezbollah militants and other terror forces have been using to conduct attacks, according to multiple U.S. officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon and communicated fears that Tehran is preparing to lead a “massive regional war.”
BEIRUT (Reuters) – The United States imposed sanctions on Tuesday on four people linked to Lebanon’s Hezbollah who coordinate the Iran-backed group’s activities in Iraq and designated the son of the group’s leader as a global terrorist.
