MANAMA, Bahrain has classified a number of individuals and entities on the list of the leaders, funders and aiders of the terrorist organisations Daesh and Al Qaeda in Yemen, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced.

The announcement was made in light of the ongoing efforts to eradicate terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and combatting the financing of terrorism, the ministry said.

"This decision reflects the resolve of the TFTC member states to target terrorism financing networks and related activities and is an indication of the keenness of the Kingdom of Bahrain and member states to deepen their partnership with the United States of America in order to curb terrorist groups financing," the ministry said.

"Based on relevant national legislations and according to UN Security Council resolution 1371/2001, the sanctions to be imposed on these names cover their assets inside the Kingdom of Bahrain and a ban on local citizens and residents dealing with them."
