U.S. Sanctions Hizbullah "Green" Front Group

(U.S. Treasury Department) The U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) on Wednesday sanctioned Lebanon-based Green Without Borders (GWB) for providing support to and cover for Hizbullah's operations along the Lebanon-Israel border over the last decade while publicly operating under the guise of environmental activism. "The United States rejects Hizbullah's cynical efforts to cloak its destabilizing terrorist activities with false environmentalism," said Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Brian E. Nelson. GWB has outposts manned by Hizbullah operatives in more than a dozen locations. These outposts serve as cover for Hizbullah's underground warehouses and munitions storage tunnels. UN peacekeepers in Lebanon have been prevented from overseeing these outposts.
