The United States has announced a reward of up to $10 million for information that leads to the disruption of Hezbollah’s financial networks, according to officials.
"We will award up to $10 million for leads that result in financial disruption whether by US law enforcement, sanctions or other enforcement actions", Billingslea said. "I reiterate, we will pay up to $10 million for information that leads to disruption of Hezbollah's financial networks".

In early November 2018, the United States, which designates Hezbollah as a terrorist organisation, imposed a batch of sanctions against several individuals over their alleged links to the group, as well as the Gaza-based Hamas.
Hezbollah, established in the 1980s, is a paramilitary and political organisation originating in Lebanon's Shiite population. The group initially aimed to end Israel's occupation of southern Lebanon.
