TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The European Union will not label Lebanese Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, a report said.
Israeli newspaper Jerusalem Post quoted EU spokesperson for foreign policy, Peter Stano, as saying that the military wing of Hezbollah is already on EU blacklist.
“Any changes in the nature and scope of the existing listing are for EU Member States to discuss and decide,” Stano said, according to the Middle East Monitor.
In 2012, following an attack on a bus in Bulgaria which killed five Israelis and their driver, the EU proscribed Hezbollah’s military wing, accusing it of having carried out the attack.
The Israeli regime has protested against the move saying the Islamic resistance movement should be banned in its entirety.
