Joint Statement About Hizballah's Involvement in Fatal Terrorist Attack in Bulgaria That Killed Five Israelis

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.
