Bulgarian investigators have confirmed that two individuals with links to Hizballah were involved in the bus suicide bomb, that killed five Israelis and a Bulgarian bus driver at Burgas airport on 18 July, 2012. The European Union has consistently refused to proscribe Hizballah as a terrorist organisation, but the group’s involvement in this suicide bombing, within an EU member state, shows the EU’s denials have been futile and self-defeating. We call upon the UK Government to take the lead in pressing the EU to ban Hizballah before it murders more people.
A detailed briefing note on Hizballah can be found here.
