GCC declares Lebanon's Hezbollah "terrorist" group

Persian Gulf Arab monarchies have declared Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement a terrorist group.

The move by the six-member Persian Gulf Cooperation Council is the latest measure against Hezbollah, which is fighting terrorists in Syria. The council has taken a series of measures against Hezbollah since Saudi Arabia halted a three-billion-dollar program funding French military supplies to Beirut. Riyadh announced the military funding cut last month. An unnamed Saudi official also said Riyadh would conduct a comprehensive review of its relations with Beirut. This comes as the Persian Gulf monarchies themselves stand accused of supporting extremists and terrorists in the region.
