Hashem Safieddine, head of Hezbollah's executive council, second left, is seen in a southern suburb of Beirut, Lebanon.

The announcement comes as President Donald Trump travels to Saudi Arabia during his first foreign trip Friday. Safieddine's name was posted on the counter terrorism blacklist on the U.S. Treasury Department website.

Any assets of that NAME under Saudi jurisdiction are frozen, and Saudi citizens and residents in the Kingdom are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with that NAME designated today, SPA said.

Trump denies asking Comey to drop probe, decries 'witch hunt'
Last week in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt, he claimed he had been planning to fire Comey and called him a "grandstander". But the lingering question hanging over the press conference was what the appointment of Mueller meant for his presidency.

As long as Hizballah spreads instability, conducts terrorist attacks and engages in criminal and illicit activities around the world, we will continue to designate Hezbollah's operatives, leaders and businesses, impose sanctions as a result of designation, and disrupt its radical activities.

The State Department announced sanctions on senior Hezbollah leader Hashem Safieddine and Muhammad al-Isawi, a leader of the Islamic State group's operations on the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. He also spent time in an Egyptian prison before escaping during the 2011 Egyptian revolution.

"The action against Safieddine is the latest example of the strong partnership between the United States and Saudi Arabia in combatting the financing of terrorism", the State Department said.

Oil prices continue their advance as focus shifts to API supply report
Global benchmark Brent crude settled up 98 cents, or 1.9 percent, at $51.82 a barrel, having touched $52.63, the highest since April 21.

"The Department of State has designated Hashem Safieddine and Muhammad al-Isawi as Specially Designated Global Terrorists... which imposes sanctions on foreign persons who have committed, or pose a serious risk of committing, acts of terrorism that threaten the security of USA nationals or the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States", the release stated. The Safieddine designation is also consistent with the US government's ongoing effort to expose and apply pressure against the actions of Hizballah, which is supported by the foremost State Sponsor of Terrorism, Iran.

Hezbollah, which has members in Lebanon's parliament and Cabinet, is considered a terrorist organization by the USA government.

For the record, the White House has denied the president asked Comey or anyone else "to end any investigation". But they're less confident than before that they'll be able to get Comey to talk now.
