The US State Department declared Jawad Nasrallah, the son of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, as a "global terrorist" Tuesday as it steps up pressure on the Lebanese militia group.

It called Jawad a "rising leader" of the group who had in recent years recruited people "to carry out terrorist attacks against Israel in the West Bank."

The State Department also maintained its 21 year old "Foreign Terrorist Organization" designation of Hezbollah, as the group battles prime minister-designate Saad al-Hariri for a powerful role in the new Lebanese government.
