Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV Placed Under Sanctions By U.S. Treasury Department

On March 18, 2010, the U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions against two Hamas-linked organizations in Gaza – Al-Aqsa TV and the Islamic National Bank (INB). The actions, taken pursuant to Executive Order 13224, freeze any assets that Al-Aqsa TV or INB hold under U.S. jurisdiction and prohibit U.S. persons from engaging in any transactions with them. The targets of the sanctions include terrorists and terrorist organizations, among others.

The Treasury Department stated that Al-Aqsa TV is financed and controlled by Hamas, serving as a primary Hamas media outlet that airs programs "designed to recruit children to become Hamas armed fighters and suicide bombers upon reaching adulthood."

MEMRI has monitored Al-Aqsa TV since its founding and has briefed U.S. government officials on Hamas, including the U.S. Treasury and members of Congress, as well as officials from Western governments such as France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, and others.
