Talal Hamiyah heads Hizballah’s External Security Organization (ESO). It has organized cells worldwide. It is the element responsible for planning, coordination, and executing terrorist attacks outside of Lebanon. Those attacks primarily target Israelis and Americans. In September 2012 the US Treasury Department designated him to be a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT). In October 2017, the US Rewards for Justice program began offering $7 million for information that would bring him to justice.
