As part of the efforts targeting terrorism, Saudi State Security has listed two entities and 11 names of leaders, financiers and supporters of Al Qaeda and ISIS organization.

The Saudi State Security listing targeted financiers and facilitators for the terrorist organizations and al-Qaeda group in Yemen.

This action was taken with the participation of the United States of America, the Co-Chair of the International Center for Combating Terrorism, and the participating member states.

These measures are the first to be taken by the center since the signing of the agreement on 21 May 2017.

The establishment of the center was an expression of the strong will and determination of the member states to cooperate constructively in the fight against terrorism and it’s financing.

The measures reaffirm the keenness of Saudi Arabia and the member States to deepen the partnership with the United States to stop financing of terrorist groups that pose a threat to the security, such as al-Qaeda and ISIS organizations in Yemen.

Based on Saudi laws against terrorist crimes and its financing and in accordance with Security Council Resolution 1373 (2001), sanctions will be imposed on those names, including the freezing of any of their assets within the Kingdom.

Member States of the International Center for Combating Terrorism also imposed similar sanctions on the classified individuals and entities in accordance with their national regulations.
