    Macri paves way for Hezbollah to be deemed 'a terrorist organisation' in Argentina

    Macri's measures are considered to be a response to separate requests from the United States and Israel among other countries as well as from the local Jewish leadership.

    The Argentine Government has created the Public Registry of Persons or Entities Linked to Acts of Terrorism and its Financing (RePET), a tool whereby Hezbollah can be included. So far, local authorities adhered to the list penned by the United Nations, where Hezbollah is not included. President Mauricio Macri also decreed a day of national mourning to mark the 25th anniversary of the bombing of the Israeli Social Welfare Association (AMIA) in Buenos Aires. In a third measure, Macri gave the victims of that attack 180 days to file for monetary compensation from the state.
