Berri: US sanctions on Hezbollah officials ‘assault against parliament, Lebanon’


New US sanctions on Hezbollah officials are an “assault” against parliament and Lebanon, the Lebanese parliament’s speaker Nabih Berri said on Wednesday.

The US Treasury imposed sanctions on three top officials from the Iran-backed Hezbollah movement on Tuesday: two members of Lebanon’s parliament and a security official who coordinates between Hezbollah and Lebanon’s security agencies.

“It is an assault on the parliament and as a result an assault on all of Lebanon,” Berri, the head of Hezbollah’s ally the Amal party, said in a statement.
