Gulf States Declare Hezbollah a Terrorist Group Amid Saudi-Iranian Tensions
On Wednesday, the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council, comprising Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait, officially added Hezbollah, and all groups affiliated to it, to its so-called list of terrorist organizations. Syria and Iran stood against the GCC's move.

"We are grateful to everyone, who is in solidarity with us and who defended us against the decision of the Gulf states," Nasrallah said, as broadcast by the Lebanese Al-Manar television channel.

He added that Riyadh would barely "forgive" the states that rejected to recognize Hezbollah as terrorist organization.

Aside from the GCC, Hezbollah Shia Muslim movement is, partially or entirely, considered a terrorist organization by a number of countries including the United States, Israel and the United Kingdom, but not by Russia.
