OFAC DESIGNATES MEMBERS OF ISIS CELL IN SOUTH AFRICA

On 7 November, OFAC designated 4 members of an ISIS cell operating in South Africa who have provided technical, financial, or material support to the terrorist group.  It also designated 8 companies owned, controlled, or directed by the individuals in this ISIS cell.  ISIS continues to expand its terrorist network across the continent, as evidenced by the July 2022 UN Security Council report that highlighted the emerging importance of the country for funds transfers from ISIS leadership to ISIS affiliates across Africa.
