Arab League removes Hezbollah from list of terrorist organizations

The Arab League's Assistant Secretary General, Hossam Zaki, has announced that the league has ceased referring to Hezbollah as a “terrorist organization".

After the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement took action against the Zionist regime during Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, the Arab League announced that it no longer considers Hezbollah a "terrorist group", reported by IRNA, citing Al Jazeera on Saturday.

In a televised statement upon his return from Lebanon, Zaki said, “In previous Arab League decisions, Hezbollah was designated as a terrorist organization, and this designation was reflected in the resolutions, leading to the severing of communication based on these decisions.”

“The member states of the League agreed that the label of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization should no longer be employed,” he added.

Also, he announced that the conditions for establishing relations between the Arab League member states and Hezbollah have been met.

On March 11, 2016, the Arab League classified Hezbollah as a "terrorist organization".
