Israel Targets Terrorist Finance Agents

(Jerusalem Post) Anna Ahronheim - Israel's Defense Ministry announced Tuesday it would place "targeted economic sanctions" on members of terrorist organizations in Israel and abroad to limit their ability to use their assets to finance terrorism. The first targeted individual is Mohammad Jamil, a Hamas activist deported by Israel who now heads the Arab Human Rights Organization in the United Kingdom, a branch of Hamas. The ministry said, "The people against whom the orders will be signed will be added to the list in the security system, which is accessible to everyone, so that dozens and later hundreds of members belonging to the terrorist organizations Hizbullah, Hamas and others are marked across the world. At the heart of the move is a clear concept that the State of Israel will act against Islamic terrorism with additional non-military tools, with an emphasis on economic sanctions, in order to bring agencies around the world to avoid contact with terrorists."
