US offers $12 mln bounty for the capture of 2 Hezbollah leaders

wanted hezbollah leadersThe US has offered a total of $12 million in rewards for the capture of two senior Hezbollah officials, saying the Iranian-backed group is plotting attacks inside the US. The announcement comes as Washington mulls canceling the Iran nuclear deal.

A $7 million bounty applies to Talal Hamiyah, head of Hezbollah’s external operations. Another $5 million is being offered for Fu’ad Shukr, the group’s senior military official, accused of masterminding the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing that killed 241 US Marines.

Hezbollah is “focused on US interests, including here in the homeland,” National Counterterrorism Center Director Nicholas J. Rasmussen told reporters at the State Department Tuesday.

While he declined to comment on any specific, credible or imminent threats, Rasmussen said the US intelligence community continues to see “activity on behalf of Hezbollah here inside the homeland.”

“It’s our assessment that Hezbollah is determined to give itself a potential homeland option as a critical component of its terrorism playbook,” he added.

        I’m sure their kids, cousins, neighbors, “brothers” in arm already have petro-dollar signs blinking in their eyes. Your dad and uncle are already hiding in the same rat hole as Nasrallah

          Your certainty is a testimony of your personal experience. How many sheckels did you sell your family members for?

          Why would my father and uncle hide? Unlike you, they are not wanted nor did they flee Lebanon like filthy rats.

          ps – Petro-dollar? Is oil involved?

            I know what you meant silly. Your comments and come backs are as pathetic as your lies.

        With any luck they are already dead in Syria. It could have been any number of Israeli strikes. It is open season on the Party of God, and there is no bag-limit.

    I remember the US’ manhunts rewards in the Balkan. A most entertaining circus. This seems identical.
