(Worthy News) - Are U.S. sanctions beginning to have an impact on Hezbollah? Sky News Arabia has reported that the Shiite terrorist organization has postponed a number of payments, including to Hezbollah members as a result of financial difficulties.
According to the report, which appeared on Sky News Arabia's website, Wednesday, employees of Hezbollah's media, education, medical and even military systems have complained of deep pay cuts of late, with some reportedly receiving only 60% of their salaries last month.
Despite their increasing frustration at the situation, Lebanese media outlets and workers whose salaries have been cut have refrained from publicly criticizing Hezbollah out of concern doing so would damage the organization's standing. [ Source: Israel Hayom (Read More...) ]
