Hezbollah chief 'proud' of US sanctions on members of group

The leader of the Hezbollah militant group says he is "proud" of US sanctions targeting three members of the group.



Beirut: The leader of the Hezbollah militant group says he is "proud" of US sanctions targeting three members of the group.

Speaking before a graduation event in southern Beirut today, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah says such sanctions do not make the slightest difference to the group.

The US Treasury Department slapped sanctions last week on three Hezbollah members, including senior figure Mustafa Badr al Din, and a Lebanese businessman for their suspected militant activities in support of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The action freezes the US assets of all four and prevents Americans from engaging in transactions with them.

"This does not make a slightest difference to our brothers," Nasrallah said. He said Hezbollah members did not have money in international banks or otherwise.
