U.S. Welcomes Estonia’s Action Against Hizballah


Estonia is sending a strong message in Europe, and within the European Union, by prohibiting Hizballah affiliates from entering its territory, mitigating the threat Hizballah poses to the security of Estonia and international partners. Like the actions taken by Germany, Lithuania, and Kosovo, and the commitment by Serbia earlier this year, Estonia’s decisive action recognizes that Hizballah is a terrorist organization in its entirety and poses a significant threat in Europe and elsewhere. We urge all countries to take whatever action they can to prevent Hizballah operatives, recruiters, and financiers from operating in their territories.
