The U.S. State Department listed as designated terrorists two Hezbollah officials, including a senior aide to Sayyed Nasrallah







The U.S. State Department listed as designated terrorists two Hezbollah officials.
 
A statement Monday named Ali Damush, a senior aide to leader of the Lebanese resistance movement, Hassan Nasrallah, and Mustafa Mughniyeh, the son of Imad Mughniyeh, the former chief of Hezbollah military operations.
 
The elder Mughniyeh was assassinated in 2008 in Syria in an operation believed to have been carried out by Israel’s Mossad agency with CIA backing.
 
State Department designation as a terrorist keeps individuals from conducting any transactions involving the U.S. financial system and inhibits their travel, as they appear on lists shared by law enforcement agencies.
