Sanctions unlikely to affect Hezbollah

Quoted in the Daily Star on the impact of US sanctioning Iran on Hezbollah: “The U.S. is targeting the official economy in Iran, while Hezbollah benefits from transactions outside the official economies of both Lebanon and Iran” “The Trump administration is going after Hezbollah’s source of support, and if the Shiite group felt the Iranian regime’s survival is in question, it might act to increase the cost of U.S. diplomatic pressure on Iran”.
