The German government intends to completely ban all Hezbollah activities in the country, including the flying of its flag, according to German daily Der Spiegel.
The German government is planning to ban all activity of Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah in the country, German daily Der Spiegel reported on Thursday.
Such a move would put Hezbollah on the same level as terrorist groups such as Islamic State and the PKK Kurdish militia.
Sources in the German foreign, interior and justice ministries told Der Spiegel the ban could happen as early as next week
Following the ban, all activities of Hezbollah would be forbidden in the country, including the public display of the group’s flag.
The European Union has to date outlawed only the so-called military branch of Hezbollah, but not the entire group.
German lawmakers had previously considered outlawing the Lebanese terrorist group during the summer.
E.U. members the Netherlands and the United Kingdom consider all of Hezbollah a terrorist entity, as do the United States, Canada, Israel and even the Arab League.
