Countries should join US in pressuring Hezbollah: US State Department spokesperson

The international community should join the US in pressuring Lebanese Hezbollah, said a US State Department spokesperson in an interview with Al Arabiya on Wednesday.

The US stands with the Lebanese people against Hezbollah, added Geraldine Gassam Griffith, who is the deputy director of the US State Department’s Dubai Regional Media Hub and one of the govnernment’s principal Arabic-language spokespeople.

Griffith also said that US sanctions were working against Tehran, which is Hezbollah’s principal backer, explaining that the “maximum pressure” sanctions campaign on Iran frustrates its ability to fund proxy militias across the Middle East.
