U.S. Puts Up $10 mn Reward for Hizbullah Information

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The United States on Monday offered a $10 million reward for information that would disrupt the finances of Lebanon's Shiite militant movement Hizbullah.

The State Department said it would give the money to anyone who provides intelligence that allows the United States to disrupt Hizbullah in key ways.

The areas include information on Hizbullah's donors, on financial institutions that assist its transactions and on businesses controlled by the movement.

President Donald Trump's administration has put a top priority on reducing the influence of Iran, the primary backer of Hizbullah.

The State Department listed three alleged Hizbullah financiers as examples of activities it was seeking to stop, with one, Ali Youssef Charara, allegedly funding the group by investing millions of dollars from Hizbullah in the telecommunications industry in West Africa.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has pointed to a recent appeal by Hizbullah for donations as a sign of US success in curbing Iran.

On a visit last month to Beirut, Pompeo urged Lebanon to counter the "dark ambitions" of Iran and Hizbullah but was rebuffed by Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil, who said Hizbullah was not a terrorist group and enjoyed a wide base.

The United States has vowed for decades to fight Shiite militants in Lebanon, with memories still bitter over the 1983 attack on a military barracks in Beirut that killed 241 Americans.

Hizbullah, however, also functions as a political party, with posts in the current cabinet, and enjoys support among some Lebanese who recall its guerrilla campaign that led Israel to withdraw from the country in 2000.

I'd do it free of charge if I had the names. It's a moral duty to report the terrorists to anyone willing to deal with them.

It is for a fact a legal duty to arrest anyone supporting the zionist enemy, if you indeed are Lebanese, which I doubt.

To do so then you would need to arrest every single Kizballah leaders who have opted to do the "zionist" work and kill Arabs ya dweeb. Im guessing when the good lord was out handing brain cells you were off that day?
