Senior IDF officials are expected to brief the members of the UN Security Council on the Iran-backed group’s activity in Lebanon, voicing their concerns over its further strengthening in the country and its entrenchment in Syria.
In a bid to persuade the members of the United Nations Security Council to dub Hezbollah as a terrorist organization, senior officers from Israel’s Military Intelligence Directorate are expected to brief the members of the international body on the Iran-backed group’s activity in Lebanon. They will voice their concerns over its further strengthening in the country and the establishment of extensive terror infrastructures, and also raise the need to prevent further Iranian entrenchment in Syria.
Although Hezbollah is already considered a terrorist organization by multiple countries, including Israel, the US and members of the Arab League, its members serve in the Lebanese government. Over the past few months, the Israeli mission to the UN headed by Ambassador Danny Danon has been waging a campaign to get the UN Security Council to declare the Shiite organization as a terrorist group.
