Hezbollah Chief Designated for U.S. Sanctions for Syria

The U.S. imposed financial sanctions against the head of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, for providing support to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Two other Hezbollah figures, Mustafa Badr Al-Din and Talal Hamiyah, also were designated for sanctions for leading the Lebanon-based group’s “terrorist activities in the Middle East and around the world,” according to a statement today by the Treasury Department.
