LONDON, (Reuters) – The British government said on Wednesday it was adding the military arm of Hezbollah to its list of banned terrorist organisations.

“This means that it will be a criminal offence to belong to, fundraise and encourage support for the military wing of the organisation,” the home office (interior ministry) said in a statement.

It added that the group’s political, social and humanitarian activities would remain unaffected.
