Breaking: US Congress passes legislation to impose new sanctions against Hezbollah

The US Congress has passed legislation to impose new sanctions on Hezbollah and nations that support its terrorist activities, US Senate Banking Committee Chairman Mike Crapo said in a press release on Friday.

“This legislation… imposes additional sanctions on Hezbollah, and targets those foreign nations, government agencies and foreign companies or individuals who would support its terrorist activities by knowingly providing arms, recruitment services and combat or financial support to its terrorist activities,” Crapo said.

The bipartisan bill — the Hezbollah International Financing Prevention Amendments Act — will now head to US President Donald Trump to be signed into law, the release said.
