The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) considered on Wednesday the Lebanese "Hezbollah," and all its leaders, factions and the organizations affiliated to it, a terrorist organization.

The Secretary-General of the GCC Abdul Latif bin Rashid Al Zayani said that the GCC countries have taken this decision because of the continued "hostile acts carried out by elements of the militias to recruit youth form the GCC member states to carry out terrorist acts, the smuggling of weapons and explosives, sedition, incitement of the chaos and violence in flagrant violation of the member states' sovereignty, security and stability."

He added that the GCC has considered Hezbollah's practices in the GCC countries, and the "terrorist and subversive acts by in Syria, Yemen and Iraq are incompatible with the values and morals of the humanitarian principles and international law, and pose as a threat to Arab national security."

The Secretary-General stressed that due to the continuation of Hezbollah in its practices, the GCC decided to be considered a "terrorist organization" and will take the necessary measures to implement its decision in this regard on the basis of the stipulated special anti-terrorism laws applied in the GCC states.
