US sanctions Hezbollah leader, offers reward for information leading to him
The US Treasury on Friday placed sanctions on a senior Hezbollah operative it said coordinated the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Argentina’s capital Buenos Aires, offering a $7 million for information leading to him.
“We are targeting Salman Raouf Salman, who coordinated a devastating attack in Buenos Aires, Argentina against the largest Jewish center in South America 25 years ago and has directed terrorist operations in the Western Hemisphere for Hezbollah ever since,” said Sigal Mandelker, Treasury’s undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence.
