U.S. Designates Son of Hizbullah Leader a Terrorist

(Reuters) The U.S. State Department on Tuesday designated Jawad Nasrallah, son of Lebanon's Iran-backed Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, a terrorist and accused him of carrying out attacks against Israel in the West Bank. The Al-Mujahidin Brigades (AMB), which it said had links to Hizbullah, was also blacklisted. "Today's designations seek to deny Nasrallah and AMB the resources to plan and carry out terrorist attacks," the State Department said. Later, the State Department announced $5 million rewards for locating Hamas leader Salih al-Aruri and Hizbullah leaders Khalil Yusif Mahmoud Harb and Haytham Ali Tabatabaei.
