Designating Facilitators of Hizballah Financial Advisor

The United States is today designating five individuals and two entities in connection with sanctions evasion by U.S.-designated Hizballah financial advisor Hassan Moukalled. These efforts have enabled Moukalled to continue to support the terrorist group and its leadership.

The United States remains committed to deterring and disrupting terrorist financing and identifying its enablers. Today’s action is another reminder that there are consequences for enablers of terrorist groups who facilitate sanctions evasion through businesses posing as legitimate investments.

Treasury designations were taken pursuant to Executive Order 13224 , as amended, which targets terrorist groups and their supporters. For more information on today’s action, see Treasury’s press release .
