EU Updates Its List of Sanctioned Entities

Further, the European Commission added new persons to sanctions directed against the ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaida organizations, and removed restrictions imposed on one Iraqi entity. The up-to-date consolidated list of all entities and people subject to EU sanctions can be found on the website of the European Commission.
