US imposes sanctions on Hizb

The United States on Wednesday imposed sanctions on  Kashmir’s largest militant group Hizbul Mujahideen, Reuters reported

The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the Department of the Treasury said it had added Hizb to its  Specially Designated Nationals list as a Foreign Terrorist Organization(FTO) and Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT), freezing any assets it may hold in the country and prohibiting Americans from any dealings with it.

In June, the US had designated  Hizb chief Syed Salahuddin  as a “global terrorist.”
