Hezbollah in Lebanon

The U.S. State Department on Monday announced a reward of up to $10 million for information that can help disrupt the financing of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorist organization, based in Lebanon.

The announcement was made by Assistant Secretary Michael T. Evanoff in connection with the State Department’s ‘Reward for Justice’ program, which usually is used to target individual terrorists.

This is the first time the program has been used to target a financial network, such as that which provides the support for Hezbollah to carry out its terrorist activities.

Under the program, money will be paid by the Departments of State and Treasury to those who provide information such as the names of Hezbollah donors and financiers, bank records, customs receipts or evidence of real estate transactions, according to a State Department spokesperson.
