Lebanon's Hezbollah appeals for donations to combat sanctions

Lebanon's Hezbollah appeals for donations to combat sanctionsLebanon’s Hezbollah movement on Friday called for donations from its popular base because it says it is coming under financial pressure as a result of Western sanctions. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah’s appeal came after Britain announced on February 25 that it would seek to make membership of the Shiite movement or inviting support for it a crime. It also follows the United States ramping up sanctions against the group, with its latest raft of measures in November targeting Nasrallah’s son Jawad, among other individuals.
