Israel welcomed the decision by the Austrian parliament calling for measures against the Hezbollah terrorist organization.

The resolution, unanimously passed in Parliament, calls on the Austrian government to take action against terror activists and supporters, and also seeks to change the policy that artificially separates the military and political arm of the organization.

Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi responded to the move, saying, "This is a significant decision against Hezbollah, and I hope that the Austrian government adopts the parliamentary decision and joins the UK, Germany, and the Netherlands who recognized Hezbollah in its entirety as a terror organization."

"Preceding this decision, like similar decisions made in Europe in recent months, was significant diplomatic work by foreign ministers leading an inter-agency effort to combat Hezbollah in the international political arena."
