Two Hezbollah Frontmen get OFAC listing, too.

Following up on yesterday's listing of the network of P.A. Bermudez Suaza as Specially Designated Narcotics Trafficker(s), the U.S. Department of the Treasury has designated Kassim Tajideen and Abd Al Menhem Qubaysi, two Africa-based supporters of the Hizballah (Hezbollah) terrorist organization, under Executive Order 13224 as material supporters of a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SPGT). Hezbollah has been so listed since 2001, superseding its listing as a Foreign Terrorist Organization ( al) since 1995.

The connections that run from South America through West Africa and on to Europe and the Middle East continue to be unmasked.
