US Treasury sanctions individuals for providing financial support to Hezbollah

The US Treasury Department is imposing sanctions on three people and a company it says are helping fund Hezbollah activities.

Sanctions imposed by the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control target Adel Diab, Ali Mohamad Daoun, Jihad Salem Alame and their company, Dar Al Salam for Travel & Tourism.

Hezbollah’s “extensive network of financial facilitators has helped the group tap into Lebanon’s financial resources and survive the current economic crisis”, the Treasury said.

The group, designated as a terrorist entity by the United States since 2001, uses businessmen to “access material and financial support through the legitimate business sector”, says the Treasury, “to finance its acts of terrorism and its attempts to destabilize Lebanese politics”. establishments”.

Tell an urgent story

During a global pandemic, a small country produces research that helps guide health policy around the world. How effective are COVID-19 vaccines? After the first two injections, does a third dose help? What about a fourth?

When The Times of Israel began covering COVID-19, we had no idea our little beat would become such a central part of world history. Who could have known that Israel would be the first at almost every step in the history of vaccination – and generate the research so urgently needed today?

Our team covered this story with the rigor and precision that characterizes Times of Israel reporting on all topics. If it is important to you that this type of media organization exists and thrives, I urge you to support our work. Will you join the Times of Israel community today?

Thank you,
