Jihad al-Bina

Anyone know if Hezbollah's Jihad al-Bina has shown up in Africa?


Hizballah operates Jihad al-Bina for its own construction needs as well as to attract popular support through the provision of civilian construction services," said Stuart Levey, Treasury's Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence (TFI). "We will take action against all facets of this deadly terror group."

Jihad al-Bina has used deceptive means to seek funding for projects from international development organizations.

  • In cases when intended solicitation targets were thought to object to the group's relationship with Hizballah and the Iranian government, the organization employed deceptive practices, applying in the name of proxies not publicly linked to Hizballah.
  • Following the summer 2006 conflict with Israel, Hizballah used Jihad al-Bina to raise funds for the terrorist organization and to bolster the group's standing by providing construction services in Southern Lebanon.

This company is also know as:

Jihad al-Binaa', Jihadu-I-Binaa, Construction for the sake of the holy struggle, Construction Jihad, Struggle for Reconstruction, Jihad Construction Institution, Jihad Construction Foundation, Jihad al Binaa Association, Holy Construction Foundation, Jihad

Construction Location: Beirut, Lebanon, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon, Southern Lebanon
