Al-Qaeda and TTPa Leaders Named as Global Terrorists by US
- 02, December , 2022
NewsToday: The US put three Al-Qaeda commanders in South Asia and one leader of the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan on the list of global terrorists and sanctioned them.
According to the American Broadcasting Corporation, Foreign Minister Antony Blanken announced that Al-Qaeda South Asia Emir Osama Mahmood, Deputy Emir Atif Yahya Ghori, and Muhammad Maruf, who is responsible for recruiting youth in the organization, have been transferred to international custody, along with the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan Vice Emir Qari Amjad. Terrorists have been added to the list.
Being included on the list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists implies that not only will these persons' assets be frozen in the United States, but doing business with any of them will be illegal.
The US Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stated its resolve to take action against the leaders of Al-Qaeda in South Asia and the proscribed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan.
According to US Secretary of State Anthony Blanken, putting these individuals on the global terrorist list is part of our ongoing efforts to guarantee that terrorists do not use Afghanistan as a staging ground.
Antony Blanken stated that we would take all necessary actions to ensure that these global terrorists do not flourish in Afghanistan. It should be emphasized that the American forces departed Afghanistan last year due to the peace agreement with the Taliban. Still, it was agreed that the Taliban would not use Afghan land as a safe haven for other extremist organizations, including Al-Qaeda, or target anybody else in the nation. They will permit the utilization of their property.
