The German government will reportedly outlaw Lebanese terror organization Hezbollah from operating in the country, according to daily newspaper Der Spiegel.
Sources from Germany's Foreign Ministry, Interior Ministry and Ministry of Justice told Der Spiegel the decision could happen next week when cabinet ministers are scheduled to meet.
If the decision is implemented, all activities and associations with Hezbollah will be forbidden in Germany, including waving of the group's flag. The decision would treat Hezbollah as equal to Islamic State.
