Iranian support for As-Saib Ahl Al-Haq (AAH) and Harakat Hizballah Al-Nujaba (HHN) is a major contributor to Iraq’s destabilization. Sanctioning these groups and their agents is an important step towards combating their influence and the violence they spread in the Middle East.
Whether Hizballah is a terrorist organization is open to interpretation. Some believe it’s a legitimate political group — as evidenced by its victory in 2018 elections in Lebanon. If Hizballah isn’t really a terrorist group, it and its agents shouldn’t be sanctioned as such.
