Follow j. on   and 

The House of Representatives passed a resolution urging the European Union and its member states to designate Hezbollah a terrorist organization and impose sanctions on the group.

The bipartisan resolution, which passed Jan. 3, would prevent Hezbollah from using EU territories for fundraising, recruitment, training and propaganda.

Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) authored the resolution, which was co-sponsored by 85 representatives.

The United States has designated the Lebanon-based Hezbollah as a terrorist organization since the late 1990s. — jta
