Canadian Defenders 4 Human Rights fully condemns the #German regime for its biased & unjust attack on the Shia Muslim community & Hezbollah Sympathizers. Hezbollah is a legitimate political party part of a democratic system. We call for immediate justice!
Germany banned all Hezbollah activity on its soil on Thursday and designated the Iran-backed group a terrorist organisation, a much-anticipated step long urged by Israel and the United States. Police also conducted early morning raids on mosque associations in cities across Germany which officials believe are close to the heavily armed Shi’ite Islamist group.
“The activities of Hezbollah violate criminal law and the organization opposes the concept of international understanding,” said the interior ministry in a statement.
The move means that Hezbollah symbols are banned at gatherings and in publications or in the media and Hezbollah assets can be confiscated, said the ministry, adding as it is a foreign organisation, it is not possible to ban and dissolve it.
Security officials believe up to 1,050 people in Germany are part of what they describe as Hezbollah’s extremist wing.
