Acting under the authority of and in accordance with section 1(a)(ii)(A) of Executive Order 13224 of September 23, 2001, as amended by Executive Order 13268 of July 2, 2002, Executive Order 13284 of January 23, 2003, and the Executive Order titled “Modernizing Sanctions to Combat Terrorism” effective September 10, 2019, I hereby determine that the person known as Hurras al-Din, also known as Guardians of Religion, also known as Tanzim Hurras al-Din, also known as Tandhim Hurras al-Deen, also known as Hurras al-Deen, also known as Sham al-Ribat, also known as Al-Qaida in Syria, also known as AQ-S, is a foreign person who has committed or has attempted to commit, or poses a significant risk of committing, or has participated in training to commit, acts of terrorism that threaten the security of U.S. nationals or the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States.
Consistent with the determination in section 10 of Executive Order 13224 that prior notice to persons determined to be subject to the Order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States would render ineffectual the blocking and other measures authorized in the Order because of the ability to transfer funds instantaneously, I determine that no prior notice needs to be provided to any person subject to this determination who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, because to do so would render ineffectual the measures authorized in the Order.
This notice shall be published in the Federal Register.
Dated: September 10, 2019.
Michael R. Pompeo,
Secretary of State.
