Lebanese resistance movement, Amal, denounced on Thursday decision announced by the Gulf Cooperation Council to blacklist Hezbollah as a “terrorist organization,” stressing that the Lebanese party is a resistance movement.

In a statement released by its politburo, Amal said that statements made by the GCC and Arab ministers in Tunis “should be applied on the groups which have been posing real danger on the national security of our nation.”

These groups, Amal added, are well known for recruiting youths as they represent militant and international terrorism that threatens the entire Arab world. Amal and Hezbollah flags

“These groups are smuggling arms and explosives as they sow sedition and carry out the most horrible crimes and genocides against all sects,” Amal said in the statement.

As the movement voices rejection to the statements by GCC and Arab ministers, it called for revision of such decisions, noting that such blacklisting should be against the Zionist entity which represents the real terrorism.

Earlier on Wednesday, GGCC issued ia statement in which it blacklisted Hezbollah as a "terrorist group."

Later on, interior ministers from several Arab countries took the same stance, denouncing the "practices of terrorist Hezbollah," during  the 33rd session of the Council of Arab Interior Ministers in the Tunisian capital.
