US Coordinator for Counterterrorism Nathan Sales on Thursday accused Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed Lebanese movement, of stockpiling across Europe ammonia nitrate – an explosive fertiliser that destroyed the port in Beirut.

“Today the US government is unveiling new information about Hezbollah presence in Europe. Since 2012 Hezbollah has established caches of ammonium nitrate throughout Europe. Today I can reveal that some caches has been moved from Belgium to France, Greece, Italy, Spain and Switzerland,” Sales said during a webinar. “I can also reveal that significant ammonium nitrate caches have been discovered and destroyed in France, Greece, Italy. We have reasons to believe that this activity is still underway.”

The US diplomat claimed that Hezbollah’s intention is to use the substance as a weapon for carrying out major terror attacks if such orders come from its Iranian patrons.

“The question than becomes ‘Why would Hezbollah stockpile ammonium nitrate on European soil?’ Answer is clear – Hezbollah has put these weapons in place so that it conduct major terror attacks whenever… Tehran deems necessary,” Sales said.

He called a blast that rocked Lebanon’s capital in August and destroyed its port “a vivid reminder of how dangerous ammonium nitrate can be.” Sales said that the revelations show that more European countries “need to act now” to outlaw Hezbollah in its entirety – without making distinction between its military wing and political leadership.

and the US doesn’t even hide the nuclear warheads it stockpiles in Europe and Turkey, and possibly including the very Russian border soon thanks to the slave Polish government pathetically begging itself to host some over the coming months/years against the majority of its own population. besides , the Hezbollah thing is just a bunch of unsubstanciated lies.

Oh, you know the US B61 is a gravity bomb from the 60’s. A F-16 carrying it has close to zero chances to force into the Russian airspace, the NATO nuke sharing is really outdated. And BTW, tell us how many nuke warheads Russia has? Isn’t it about 6500-7000?

It’s high time we consider an EU nuclear sharing based on 500 ASMPA supersonic stealth ALCMs : it’s high time for Eastern Europe countries to show them the EU cares about, moreover, the ASMPA is not very expensive, a conventional version could also replace the ageing Exocet.

This is not new, several Hezb explosives stashes depots already been busted in the past, and Hezbollah performed many terror attacks in the EU in the past, not speaking of more classic criminal activities like the smuggling of cocaine
