On 16th July, OFAC announced that a Moroccan and a Mali national had been added to its sanctions lists. Bah Ag Moussa, from Mali, is a leader of Jama’at Nusrat al-Islam wal-Muslimin (JNIM), which is affiliated to Al-Qaida. OFAC says he directly contributes to the violence and instability fuelled by Al-Qaida’s terrorism. Both JNIM and its leader, Iyad ag Ghali were already designated.
Ali Maychou, a Moroccan national active in Mali, is the other person added to the sanctions list.
