EU foreign minister meets with head of Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc while in Beirut

BEIRUT — The European Union’s foreign policy chief met a political official of Iran-backed terror group Hezbollah in Beirut, as part of a push to avoid Lebanon being dragged into the Israel-Hamas war.

Josep Borrell held talks today with the head of Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc, Mohammad Raad, Lebanese media reports.

An EU source confirms the meeting, which came hours after the terrorist group’s fighters launched a barrage of rockets at an Israeli military base in response to the killing of Hamas deputy leader Saleh al-Arouri in a suspected Israeli strike in Beirut on Tuesday.

The EU is “engaging in diplomatic dialogue with all relevant political representatives who have influence on the situation on the ground or have a stake in it,” the source says.
