Iran-sponsored Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah to be fully outlawed in Britain
British Home Secretary Sajid Javid will take steps to outlaw Iran-backed Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah later this year, a senior Conservative source Conservative source told the British-based Jewish Chronicle news website.
Javid vowed to take “decisive action” over the Iranian-backed terror group ahead of last weekend’s Al Quds Day march in London, where Hezbollah flags were once again flown.
Al-Quds is a day Iran created as a platform for Muslim terror-sympathizers to incite violence and hate against Israel.
Hezbollah’s military wing was banned as a terror group in Britain in 2008 but a legal loophole allows supporters to fly the flags at events such as last Sunday’s rally, because Hezbollah’s political arm is not banned. The Home Office has the power to ban the political wing and thereby proscribe the terror group in its entirety.
Hezbollah flags were seen at the Al Quds day rally on Sunday, despite protests from Jewish groups.
