UN imposes sanctions on terror group ISIS Khorasan

WEB DESK

The UN has imposed sanctions on terror group ISIS-Khorasan, ISIS-K, for its links with Al-Qaeda and involvement in several attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is now subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo. The group, formed in 2015 by a Pakistani national and a former commander of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, has killed over 150 people.

The United Nations Security Council’s 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee sanctioned Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant – Khorasan (ISIL-K). ISIS-K is known as ‘ISIS’ South Asia Branch, ISIL Khorasan, Islamic State’s Khorasan Province’ and ‘South Asian Chapter of ISIL’.

The listing comes two weeks after the Sanctions Committee designated Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as “global terrorist”. This capped a decade-long effort by India and its allies including the US, the UK, France to sanction the mastermind of several attacks, including the 2001 Parliament attack and the 14th February Pulwama terror attack.
