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.
