Matthew Miller, Department Spokesperson
Today, the United States is designating Green Without Borders (GWB) and its head, Zuhair Subhi Nahla.
Under Nahla’s leadership, GWB has functioned as a cover for Hizballah’s terrorist activities. GWB sites have been used to conduct Hizballah’s weapons training, to provide support for Hizballah’s activities along the Blue Line in southern Lebanon, and to impede the freedom of movement of the UN Security Council-mandated United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).
We are taking this action as part of our efforts to prevent and disrupt financial and other support for terrorist attacks in Lebanon, Israel, and around the world. The United States is committed to denying funding and resources to these terrorist support networks and will continue countering the threats they pose both locally and internationally.
Today’s actions are being taken pursuant to counter-terrorism authority Executive Order 13224, as amended. For more information about this designation, please see the Department of the Treasury’s .
