In continuation of its policy of maximum pressure on the Lebanese Hezbollah movement, the US government sanctioned three individuals and two Lebanese companies under the pretext of providing financial services to this movement.

Iran PressAmerica: In line with its efforts to decrease the popularity of the Hezbollah movement in Lebanon, Washington always puts Lebanese banks and personalities on its sanctions list for allegedly being associated with this movement.

Lebanon's Hezbollah, as one of the main members of the resistance front, plays an essential role in confronting the plots and actions of the American-Zionist axis in the region.

The US Department of Treasury announced on Thursday evening local time that it sanctioned two accountants and two Lebanese companies for providing financial services to Hezbollah.

The US body said it would sanction another Lebanese individual for helping Hezbollah acquire weapons.

Hezbollah is one of the most important political parties in Lebanon.

The US actions in Lebanon have been repeatedly criticized by experts and political analysts who say that Hezbollah has played an important role in maintaining peace and stability in Lebanon and fighting against terrorist and extremist groups in the region. 219
