Salman Raouf Salman (Salman) acts for or on behalf of Hizballah;

Salman is a senior member of Hizballah’s ESO (also known as the Islamic Jihad Organization), Hizballah’s elite unit commanded by U.S.-designated Talal Hamiyah, which functions as the strategic arm and operational unit of Hizballah abroad. In this role, Salman directs Hizballah’s foreign operations from Lebanon;

Salman has a long history of leadership and operational planning within Hizballah, having served as one of the most prominent operatives behind the Asociacion Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) bombing, the 1994 attack on the community center for the largest Jewish community in South America, which killed 85 innocent people and wounded hundreds more. In the aftermath of the AMIA bombing, Argentine security officials determined that Salman had been in contact with U.S.-designated Assad Barakat leading up to the attack, and that Salman was the coordinator of Hizballah sleeper cells in Buenos Aires and the Tri-Border Area of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay;

Since his role in the AMIA bombing in Buenos Aires, Salman has risen through the ranks of Hizballah. Salman fled the region after the bombing, and in the years that followed, served as a member of the ESO, with particular focus on Southeast Asia and South America in the 1990s, including a flurry of operational missions in 1997 with three visits to Panama, two to Colombia, and one to Brazil;

Hizballah – terrorists organization controlled and supported by the Iran Regime, Terrorist organization IRGC and IRGC-Qods Force;

Hizballah is first and foremost a terrorist organization, despite its attempts to falsely portray itself as a legitimate political entity. It is a reminder that prior to the attacks of September 11, 2001, Hizballah was the terrorist group responsible for the most American deaths. Hizballah is responsible for carrying out the largest terrorist attack in the history of Argentina and all of Latin America. This action also highlights Hizballah’s ongoing operational presence in the Western Hemisphere and that Hizballah continues to pose a threat to the region by actively plotting attacks against civilian targets;
