Washington Adds Chief of Hezbollah Intelligence Unit to Terrorist List
The United States designated on Tuesday Pakistan’s Balochistan Liberation Army and Lebanese Hezbollah operative, Husain Ali Hazzima, as Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGTs), the State Department said in a statement.
Additionally, the US has amended the terrorist designations of Jundallah, which has started using the name Jaysh al-Adl.
According to the statement, the new measures seek to deny Hazzima, BLA and Jaysh al-Adl the resources to plan and carry out terrorist attacks.
They also expose and isolate organizations and individuals and deny them access to the US financial system.
Therefore, all of their property and interests subject to US jurisdiction are blocked, and US persons are prohibited from engaging in any transactions with them.
