Coming to a terror sanctions list near you: Hezbollah!

On Monday, the US State Department heralded the fact that the EU, after much pressure by the US, finally designated Hezbollah, the Lebanese terror organization thought to be heavily backed by Iran, as a terrorist organization. Of course, in order for this to be actionable, the EU will need to pass a Commission Implementing Regulation – and in the UK, Her Majesty's Treasury will need to modify its Consolidated List. So, this will take a while still, but it's coming – probably not a bad idea to at least add the group's name and its principal leader (Sheik Hassan Nasrallah) to your internal watchlist in the meantime.
