The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development welcomed the German government’s decision to ban three associations accused of donating to Iranian-backed Lebanese Hezbollah militias on Tuesday.
The alliance confirms that the German Interior Ministry announced a ban on the three associations (Deutsche Lipnnish Familia) and (Minchin for Minchin) in addition to (Jeb Frieden), where these associations raise donations under the guise of supposed charity work in Lebanon, and supporting orphans, but in fact, the donations go to Hezbollah.
German police have raided buildings belonging to the three associations in seven German states: Bremen, Hamburg, Hessen, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Schleswig-Holstein.
The alliance praises the efforts of the German authorities to dry up funding sources, particularly since the funds raised by the organization for use in social assistance projects are used to finance groups affiliated with Hezbollah and Iranian militias.
In April 2020, the German government approved a total ban on Lebanon’s Hezbollah on its territory.
The Egyptian Alliance for Human Rights and Development calls on the international community to take similar steps and stop the support provided by some countries to such terrorist organizations aimed at spreading chaos and hate speech in European countries.
