(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The US Department of Treasury imposed Wednesday sanctions on two militant leaders in Syria for acting for or on behalf of Al-Qaeda organization and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

The Department said in a statement that Abd Al-Rahman Muhammad Zafir Al-Dubaysi Al-Juhni (Al-Juhni) and 'Abd Al-Rahman Mustafa Al-Qaduli (Al-Qaduli) were named as Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGTs).

It indicated that in mid-2013, "Al-Juhni was part of a group of senior al-Qaeda members in Syria formed to conduct external operations against Western targets and to mediate tensions between Al-Nusrah Front (ANF) and ISIL, formerly known as al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI)." As for Al-Qaduli, he is "a senior ISIL official who reintegrated himself into ISIL following his release from prison in early 202 and traveled to Syria to work in a Syria-based ISIL network." Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David Cohen stressed "we are very concerned about al-Qaeda networks moving money and fighters to extremist groups in Syria." "Our action today highlights al-Qaeda and similar groups' efforts to take advantage of the unrest in Syria and sends a strong warning to the legitimate Syrian opposition and those who wish to support it that they must reject the attempts of al-Qaeda, ISIL, and al-Nusra to elicit support for their cause by preying on the sympathies of the international community for the plight of the Syrian people," he remarked.


As a result of today's designation, "any assets these individuals may have under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen, and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from doing business with them."
