US designates Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh as a terrorist

The US Treasury Department put on Wednesday Hamas terror group chief Ismail Haniyeh on the terror blacklist.

“Haniya has close links with Hamas’ military wing and has been a proponent of armed struggle, including against civilians,” the State Department said in a statement.

“He has reportedly been involved in terrorist attacks against Israeli citizens. Hamas has been responsible for an estimated 17 American lives killed in terrorist attacks.”

Haniya is now on the US Treasury sanctions blacklist, which freezes any US-based assets he may have and bans any US person or company from doing business with him.

The US also announced the listing of the Palestinian Al-Sabereen terror group and the Egyptian Hasm militia on the terror blacklist.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement that the sanctions aim to curb the activities of “key terrorist groups and leaders – including two sponsored and directed by Iran – who are threatening the stability of the Middle East, undermining the peace process, and attacking our allies Egypt and Israel.”

“Today’s actions are an important step in denying them the resources they need to plan and carry out their terrorist activities.”
