US declares 3 Pakistan based Lashkar e-Taiba members as Specially Designated Global Terrorists

The US today designated LeT commander Abdul Rehman al-Dakhil and the Pakistan-based terror group's two financial facilitators - Hameed-ul Hassan and Abdul Jabbar - as "Specially Designated Global Terrorists".

A longtime member of the US designated Foreign Terrorist Organisation (FTO) and Lashkar e-Taiba (LeT), Dakhil was an operational leader for LeT's attacks in India between 1997 and 2001. 

The State Department in a statement said the designation seek to deny Dakhil the resources to plan and carry out terrorist attacks. 

Among other consequences, all of his property and interests subject to US jurisdiction are blocked, and US persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with him.

In a separate statement, Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Sigal Mandelker said the two LeT financial facilitators are responsible for collecting, transporting and distributing funds to support the terror group and provide salaries to extremists.
