The US State Department Rewards for Justice Program has announced a reward offer of up to $10 million for any information which leads to the disruption of financial mechanisms of Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
“Mohammad Bazzi’s been arrested, but Hezbollah is still collecting revenue through people like him. So you may be eligible for a reward if you submit information about Hezbollah’s financial network,” Rewards for Justice said in a tweet.
The call for information and promotion of the $10 million reward possibility came on the heels of the arrest of an alleged top Hezbollah financier, 58-year old Mohammad Bazzi on Friday in Bucharest, Romania. It’s unclear whether a tip alerted US and allied security services to his whereabouts.
The State Dept-run program described on its website, “Hizballah relies on financing and facilitation networks to sustain operations and launch attacks globally.”
“Hizballah earns almost one billion dollars annually through direct financial support from Iran, international businesses and investments, donor networks, corruption, and money laundering activities,” it added.

Previously the same amount, $10 million, had been offered for information regarding the whereabouts of Bazzi, previously dubbed by the US a “global terrorist”.
The consensus among future historians will be inevitable: the 2020s started with a diabolic murder.
