UNSC Terrorism Panel adds Jabhat Al-Nusrah in Syria to its Sanctions List.
The UN announced that that the Committee has added Jabhat Al-Nusrah to its Sanctions List, along with other entities such as Tanzim Qa'edat Al-Jihad fi Bilad Al-Rafidayn, and Jama'at Al-Tawhid Wa'al-Jihad in Iraq.
The Committee's Al-Qaeda Sanctions List is updated regularly on the basis of relevant information provided by Member States and international and regional organizations. This is the thirteenth update of the List in 2013.
Jabhat Al-Nusrah, which was listed by the US State Department earlier this year as a terrorist organisation for pledging allegiance to Al-Qaeda in Iraq, has thousands of foreign combatants fighting under its control in Syria. (end) sj.gta KUNA 310923 May 13NNNN
