Marking the anniversaries of Hizbollah attacks against a Jewish community centre in Argentina in 1994 and Israeli tourists in Bulgaria in 2012, the U.S. referred to the attacks as “a clear example of Iran’s support of international terrorism” and reiterated its determination “to countering Hizbollah and Iran’s malign influence. The funding, training, weapons and other support Iran provides Hizbollah support complex and heinous terrorist attacks like these. The callous murder of civilians must not stand”. The State Department went on to note: “With our support, more than a dozen countries… have issued national level designations, bans or other restrictions against Hizballah. We urge more countries to take similar measures, which make it harder for the group and its backers in Tehran to threaten peace and security around the globe”.
