The United States is imposing sanctions today on eight Hamas officials and facilitators for their actions representing the group’s interests abroad and managing its finances. This is the fourth round of sanctions that we have imposed since Hamas’s October 7 horrible attack.
Over two months ago, Hamas brought a tragic war to Gaza and has compounded and perpetuated the suffering of people in Gaza at every step of the crisis it created.
We closely coordinated this action with the United Kingdom, which is concurrently targeting several key Hamas officials with sanctions. The United States and our allies and partners are steadfast in our commitment to dismantling networks that support Hamas funding streams as part of our continuous 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 more information on this designation, see Treasury’s press release.
