On 30 April 2020, Germany banned all activity by the Lebanese movement Hezbollah on its soil and designated it a terrorist organisation, the country’s interior ministry reported.

Security officials believe up to 1,050 people in Germany are part of Hezbollah’s military arm.

Police raided four mosques in Dortmund and Muenster in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Bremen and Berlin which they believe are close to Hezbollah.
