EU move disappoints Hizb Allah

The Lebanese resistance group Hizb Allah has expressed disappointment over the European Union parliament's decision to back measures against it if it is found to engage in so-called terrorist activities.

    The group says the EU was pressured by US and Israel

    In a statement, Hizb Allah said: "The decision by the European Parliament which came as a result of foreign pressure, especially from the United States and Israel, contradicts the parliament's principles of freedom and democracy."

    The statement follows media reports that members of the European Parliament, in a resolution on Thursday, agreed to take unspecified steps against Hizb Allah if clear evidence existed of the group being involved in terrorist activities.
     
    The EU parliament, however, did not go as far as putting Hizb Allah on a European list of terrorist organisations.
