Designating Individuals and Entities with Ties to Terrorist Organizations
ANTONY J. BLINKEN, SECRETARY OF STATE
OCTOBER 27, 2023
Today, the United States is imposing sanctions on eight key individuals for supporting Hamas, as well as Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) officials involved in financing and training Hamas. A number of the individuals and entities designated today have played key roles in facilitating sanctions evasion by Hamas-affiliated companies.
Additionally, the United States is designating an entity for its ties to Specially Designated Global Terrorists operating in the region, including Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Iranian Bonyad Shahid, also known as the Martyrs Foundation. The Department of State’s Rewards for Justice program is offering millions in rewards for information on certain activities and leaders of Hamas.
The United States is committed to dismantling networks that support funding for Hamas and countering Iran’s support for terrorism in the region and around the world. We will continue to work with our partners to deny Hamas access to the international financial system as part of our broader effort to prevent and deter its terrorist activity.
The Department of the Treasury is taking these actions pursuant to Executive Order 13224, as amended, for having acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, or owned/controlled/directed, or for having materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to Hamas, PIJ, IRGC, IRGC-QF, IRGC-GF, and/or the Martyrs Foundation, entities designated pursuant to E.O. 13224.
