BREAKING: US designates son of Hezbollah leader a ‘global terrorist’

The US State Department declared Jawad Nasrallah, the son of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, as a “global terrorist” on Tuesday as it steps up pressure on the Lebanese militia group.

It called Jawad a “rising leader” of the group who had in recent years recruited people “to carry out terrorist attacks against Israel in the West Bank.”

The State Department also maintained its 21-year-old “Foreign Terrorist Organization” designation of Hezbollah, as the group battles prime minister-designate Saad al-Hariri for a powerful role in the new Lebanese government.
