Hezbollah also holds considerable influence in the country's parliament.
Nasrallah said on Wednesday he would not respond to Trump's comments in order "not to embarrass" the official Lebanese delegation to Washington.
Despite Hariri's concerns, Gebeily downplayed the risk that the legislation could destabilize Iran's banking industry, noting that the impact from the first round of Hezbollah sanctions in 2015 "was really nil".
