The US State Department on Tuesday designated 15 leaders, individuals and entities affiliated with terror groups.
The US also identified the man as Mufti Noor Wali Mehsud, the head of the outlawed extremist Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and has targetted a wide array of groups, including entities affiliated with HAMAS, Daesh, Al-Qaeda and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Qods-Force (IRGC-QF).
Since the horrific attacks of 9/11, the US government has refocused its counterterrorism efforts to constantly adapt to emerging threats. President Trump’s modernised counterterrorism Executive Order enhances the authorities we use to target the finances of terror groups and their leaders to ensure they are as robust as possible,” US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin said.
Trump administration is very keen to reduce terrorism by changimg policies against terrorists groups. The purpose of this is to reduce terrorism in the world. This is very good decision of declaring the name of TTP Chief in the list of global terrorists.
