Hezbollah terror group shows off its arsenal in Lebanon.

The Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist organization is facing a new battle after Golan Heights chief terrorist Samir Kuntar was killed in an Israeli air strike on the outskirts of Damascus.

The terrorist group has lost nearly a third of its total number of guerrillas fighting in the savage civil war on behalf of the regime of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria, backed by Iran and Russia.

But now the terror group also faces new financial problems in the United States.

The Hezbollah International Financing Prevention Act of 2015 was formally signed into U.S. law on Friday afternoon by President Barack Obama.

The legislation, which imposes tough sanctions on banks that do business with the Iranian proxy terrorist organization, reached the president’s desk after its unanimous approval Wednesday in the House of Representatives. The legislation was passed unanimously by the Senate last month.

The law is a “strong, bipartisan bill,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Friday. “We continue to work with Congress in a bipartisan way to ensure that we maximize the tools available to us to thwart Hezbollah’s network at every turn, and we look forward to working together as we implement these new authorities,” Earnest said.

“The U.S. government has made significant progress and will continue to further disrupt Hezbollah’s terrorist capabilities by targeting the group’s financial support infrastructure.”
