A United Nations official on Monday thanked a representative of Hezbollah for giving her a “tour d’horizon” of Lebanese issues, drawing a rebuke from Israeli officials.

Joanna Wronecka, the U.N.’s special coordinator for Lebanon, tweeted her thanks to Ammar Moussawi, head of international relations for Hezbollah, which is designated as a terrorist organization by the State Department.

“I thank Mr. Ammar Moussawi of Hizbullah (sic) for a tour d’horizon on issues of priority for #Lebanon, including the election of a new President, the functioning of state institutions and the impact of regional and international developments on the country,” Wronecka wrote.

Several Israeli officials criticized the tweet.

“Is this real..??,” wrote Joshua Zarka, head of strategic affairs in Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “An official Senior UN Representative thanks the terrorist organization responsible for the murder of a UN peace keeper for ‘a tour d’horizon’!!!”

Israel considers Lebanon-based Hezbollah to be one of its most immediate threats. In 2006, the two fought a month-long war.

In August 2022, the terror group threatened to “sever” the hands of Israel amid tensions over a maritime border dispute.
