Saudi Arabia Enacts Sanctions against local Hezbollah Members


Saudi Arabia has begun to implement the sanctions placed by the Gulf States against the commercial activity of members of Hezbollah living and acting on Saudi soil.

Reports indicate that the Saudi Ministry of Interior asked government institutions to refrain from giving visas to foreign merchants and denied a Lebanese investor a license due to his alleged affiliation with the Shiite organization. The Gulf States approved of the sanctions last November, based on Hezbollah’s involvement in Syria.
