Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk has said Lebanon may take measures against two Hezbollah officials designated as terrorists by Saudi Arabia and the U.S. government for allegedly spreading "chaos" in the region.SPA said Harb was a military commander in charge of Hezbollah's activities in Yemen while Qabalan had been convicted by an Egyptian court in absentia in 2010 for activities in the country.The U.S. Treasury Department in August 2013 designated Harb and Qabalan as members of Hezbollah's leadership responsible for "operations throughout the Middle East".The Treasury Department singled out Harb as a leading figure of Hezbollah's military wing. In 2008, as a leader in Hezbollah's Unit 1800, Qabalan was coordinating the activity of a "terrorist" cell in Egypt, the Treasury Department said.
