Hizbullah has downplayed the Britain’s move to expand ban on the party as the Lebanese party consider it a “useless" move that won't affect the party and would meet similar fate which other pro-Israel measures of US-led allies had met in the past.
Lebanese newspaper Al-Joumhouria daily carried news quoting Hizbullah sources as saying that: The British government's move will not affect the party, knowing that this step goes in line with the US position which has neither affected the reality of the party nor its position.
A draft order laid in the U.K. Parliament will ban the party and two other groups. Subject to Parliament's approval, the order will go into effect Friday and being a member of, or inviting support for Hizbullah, will be a criminal offense, carrying a sentence of up to 10 years in prison. Until now the military wing of the Lebanon-based group has been outlawed in Britain, but not its political arm.
The British ban comes as the United States is increasing its pressure on Hizbullah, placing several sets of sanctions on the party and its regional backer, Iran.
