Block IP addresses at the firewall level when hit the countries blacklist

As a cPanel User, System Administrator, and web-hosting provider I would like to the ability to block IP addresses at the firewall level when countries' blacklist is triggered so that system resources are not consumed with irrelevant and insecure requests and logs are not overwhelmed by those same requests.

====================================

Currently, the IP Address-based Protection doesn't trigger if it's blocked by the countries blacklist. I'd like the option to add the IP (or even the whole /16) to the firewall when the countries blacklist is triggered.
