Since the early hours of this morning, Wednesday, May 19, 2021, German police have coordinated a large-scale operation in several German states, seizing and confiscating the property and documents of the illegal activities of three entities affiliated with the Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist group and shut them down.
According to Bild, the “search and seizure” operation is still ongoing in seven German states (Hamburg, Hesse, Bremen,..). These associations operated under the guise of charities in Germany. They had names such as “Give Peace Association”, “Association of German / Lebanese Families” or “Humans for Humans.” Now all three of these terrorist aid centers in Germany are disintegrated.
“Anyone who supports terrorism will not be safe in Germany,” German Interior Ministry spokesman Horst Seehofer said on Twitter.
“It does not matter in what clothes the supporters of terrorism appear; they will not find any refuge in our country.”
The message is addressed specifically to the Islamic Republic, whose Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, is currently touring Europe. This point is made clearer by the Secretary-General of the Christian Democratic Union of Germany, Paul Ziemiak: “Today’s decision also contains a message to Israel’s enemies: Germany stands with the Israeli people,” entities, organizations or groups who violate democratic and liberal values, their activities in this country will be banned, “Whether they’re close to Hamas or Hezbollah, it makes no difference.”
Under the guise of “humanitarian activities”, the closed associations used fraudulent titles and actions to raise money from German citizens and send millions of euros to the “Hezbollah Martyr Foundation” in Lebanon to help train the next generation of terrorists.
German security agencies have announced that the three associations had replaced the “Lebanon Orphans Project” – an association that was banned and closed seven years ago due to similar activities in Germany.
