(Worthy News) - The U.S. government on Monday offered a $10 million reward for information leading to a financial disruption to the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.

U.S. Treasury Department official Marshall Billingslea said Washington, D.C., wants to "hit Hezbollah in the wallet." Hezbollah, which the United States considers a terror organization, has sent fighters to Syria to support President Bashar al-Assad, and has had growing influence in Lebanon's government.

The State Department said it would pay the reward for information about Hezbollah's sources of revenue, any major donors, financial institutions facilitating transactions, businesses owed by the group, front companies or other criminal schemes. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
