Kosovo on Wednesday sanctioned seven local businessmen and a company for links with Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
The decision was in line with sanctions the US imposed on Hezbollah.
A statement said that seven people and the AID Properties company had their assets frozen. The seven can neither leave the country nor receive money from other individuals or companies from Kosovo.
Kosovo established diplomatic ties with Israel earlier this year following a Kosovo-Serbia summit held at the White House in Sept. 2020. A month later it opened its embassy in Jerusalem, the first European country and a Muslim-majority one to do that, following the US and Guatemala. Most international embassies are in Tel Aviv.
