“The U.S. State Department on Tuesday designated Jawad Nasrallah, son of Lebanon’s Iran-backed Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, a terrorist and accused him of carrying out attacks against Israel in the West Bank.
The department also blacklisted Al-Mujahidin Brigades (AMB), which it said had links to Hezbollah and had plotted a number of attacks against Israeli targets from a base in the Palestinian Territories.”
In January 2016 the Israeli security services dismantled a Hizballah cell which was operating under Jawad Nasrallah’s direction in the PA controlled town of Tulkarem.
On the same day the US State Department also offered rewards for information concerning two Hizballah leaders – Khalil Yusif Mahmoud Harb and Haytham Ali Tabatabaei – and the deputy leader of Hamas’ political bureau, Saleh al Arouri, who was designated by the US Treasury in 2015.
As readers may recall, the BBC did not report al Arouri’s claim of Hamas responsibility for the kidnappings and murders of three Israeli teenagers in 2014. Neither did it inform audiences of al Arouri’s forced relocation from Turkey to Qatar and subsequently to Lebanon.
This latest news concerning members of terror factions the BBC euphemistically describes as “militants” or “a Sunni Islamist organisation” in the case of Hamas and “a Shia Islamist political, military and social organisation” in the case of Hizballah is – predictably – nowhere to be found on the BBC News website.
