The U.S. Treasury Department announced that the U.S. and Turkey on Tuesday imposed sanctions on two al-Qaeda-linked militants who are believed to have raised funds for two militant groups operating in Syria.

The Turkish Ministry of Finance and Treasury has decided to freeze the financial assets of two people in Turkey associated with ISIS and Al-Qaeda terrorist organizations.

The decision entered into force on Tuesday after being published in the Official Gazette.

According to the decision, the financial assets of Kublai Sari and Omar al-Sheikh, associated with ISIS and al-Qaeda, were frozen “for committing acts that fall under the offense of financing terrorism” under the Terrorist Financing Prevention Act.

In turn, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement that as a result of investigations carried out in cooperation with the United States of America, the financial assets of two persons convicted of financing terrorism in Turkey and the United States were frozen.
