"Hezbollah is continuing in its attempts to destabilise the fragile situation in the Middle East," the UK Home Secretary said.


Britain said on Monday it would ban Hezbollah, adding the Lebanese group in its entirety to its list of banned terrorist organisations, Reuters reported.

"Hezbollah is continuing in its attempts to destabilise the fragile situation in the Middle East - and we are no longer able to distinguish between their already banned military wing and the political party," Home Secretary Sajid Javid said.

"Because of this, I have taken the decision to proscribe the group in its entirety," he added.
