WASHINGTON The Trump administration has determined that the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah is seeking to carry out attacks against the United States and has thus offered millions of dollars for whoever can help it apprehend two of its leaders.
It is our assessment that Hezbollah is determined to give itself a potential homeland option as a critical component of its terrorism playbook, said Nicholas Rasmussen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, during a briefing Tuesday.
Rasmussen went on to say that the US government was seeking help arresting Talal Hamiyeh and Fuad Shukr, and would pay $7 million and $5 million rewards for the two officials, respectively.
It is the first time in a decade that the US is offering rewards for Hezballah operatives under its counterterrorism rewards program.

Sec of Def Mattis, I wonder what you think about the response of the US to the 1983 Beirut attack today after reading thousands of history and military books?
Anyway, from the briefing:
“Were also offering a reward of up to $5 million for information that leads to the location, arrest, or conviction in any country of Fuad Shukr. Shukr is a senior military commander of Hizballahs forces in Lebanon. Hes also a member of the Jihad Council, Hizballahs highest military body. Shukr plays a key role in Hizballahs military operations in Syria, and he helped plan and launch the 1983 attack on the U.S. Marine Corps barracks in Beirut that killed 241 of our Marines.”
