Three Pakistanis have been lately announced as global terrorists by United States for having link with the LeT terror outfit.

The Department of State said LeT commander Abdul Rehman al-Dakhil is Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT).

LeT was responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attack in India that killed more than hundred people.

Meanwhile, the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has lately taken steps to disrupt fundraising and support networks of the terror outfit announcing LeT’s financial facilitators, Abdul Jabbar and Hameed ul Hassan as SDGT too.

Between 1997 and 2001 all the attacks in India were under the operational leadership of Dakhil. He was captured by British forces in 2004 in Iraq and was held in US custody in Iraq and Afghanistan. In 2014 he was transferred to Pakistan from where he was later released. In 2016 he returned to LeT and became division commander for the group for Jammu region. He was designated as a LeT’s senior commander in 2018.

As of now no US person is allowed from engaging in any transactions with Dakhil and all of his property and interests are now blocked subject to US jurisdiction.

The State Department said, “Today’s action notifies the US public and the international community that Abdul Rehman al-Dakhil has committed, or poses a significant risk of committing, acts of terrorism.”

On the other hand, Jabbar and Hassan, as claimed by Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Sigal Mandelker, were responsible for collecting funds, transporting and distributing the same to support LeT as well as paying salaries to the extremists.
