Germany’s listing of Hezbollah as terror outfit and European position on Iran nuclear deal

Dr. Ashraf Al Eisawy

In April 2020, the German Ministry of Interior announced a ban on Hezbollah activities and listed the party as a terrorist organization. This was expected given the restrictive measures taken by the German authorities against the group back in 2019, indicating its growing concern about its activities inside Germany violating the country’s rules and regulations.

The German decision will have implications not only on the outfit but also on the European countries’ reluctance to ban all its activities and only listing its military wing as a terrorist organization. This decision will also affect Iran, the party’s main supporter, and will have a trickle-down effect on the nuclear agreement considering Germany is one of the most important parties defending its continuation.متاح بالعربية
