The US State Department has designated Jawad Nasrallah, the son of Hezbollah leaders Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah as a terrorist. He is accused of carrying out attacks against Israel. The designation is geared at denying Nasrallah access and or use of resources to plan and carry out terrorist attacks on US targets or its allies.
Also, the State Department blacklisted Al-Mujahidin Brigades (AMB), which it said had links to the Lebanese group and had plotted a number of attacks against Israeli targets from a base in the Palestinian Territories.
Furthermore, it was announced that a $5m each bounty for information leading to the locations of Hamas leader Salih al-Aruri, and Hezbollah leaders Khalil Yusif Mahmoud Harb and Haytham Ali Tabatabaei under the agency’s so-called Rewards for Justice Programme was being offered.
