Saudi Arabia has added six new names and entities to its terrorism blacklist for providing Daesh with financial support

In consultation with the US and Gulf neighbors, part of the Terrorist Financing Targeting Center (TFTC), the list was established.

The move is in line with the kingdom’s efforts to combat terrorist crimes. The government allows the publication of such lists in the media for the purposes of transparency and to raise awareness about these organizations.

Among the companies designated as terrorists are three financial services companies, including Al-Haram Exchange, Tawasul, and Al Khalidiya, based in Syrian and Turkey. They played a vital role in transferring funds to support Daesh and its militias fighting in Syria. The assets of these organizations have been frozen. The Saudi government bans direct and indirect transactions with these organizations.

The terrorist list also includes Abdul Rahman Ali Hussein Al Ahmed Al Rawi is known for his role in providing financial facilities in support of Daesh

He has been involved in financing Daesh’s activities since 2017. On the list is also Saeed Habib Ahmed Khan, who used his Najat Social Welfare Organisation, based in Afghanistan, as a cover to facilitate transferring funds and support Daesh’s terrorist activities in Khurasan.
