HONDURAS DESIGNATES HEZBOLLAH AS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION



The Republic of Honduras has named Hezbollah a terrorist organization, becoming the fourth Latin American nation to designate the Lebanon-based Shi'ite organization. In 2018, Guatemala became the first Central American nation to take that step. The United States & Canada both have designated Hezbollah.

Argentina & Paraguay are the other two countries in the region to have previously acted against Hezbollah, which is engaged in narcotics trafficking and a number of other criminal ventures, in Latin America, and which launders its criminal profits through the financial system, and repatriates those funds back to Beirut, generally through Panama.
