CAIRO – 22 March 2018: Qatar placed Thursday 19 individuals and eight entities, including the Islamic State's (IS) "Sinai Province", on the terror list.
The National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NATC) in the Qatari Ministry of Interior announced placing 11 Qataris, four Egyptians, two Jordanians and two Saudi Arabians on the terror list.
Qatari Abdel Rahman Omair Rashd al-Nuaimi, placed by the U.S. treasury on the sanctions list for terrorism financing, has been placed on the Qatari list. According to the US, Nuaimi supported al-Qaeda in Syria with large sums of money, and also financed al-Qadeda in Iraq in 2001.
Designated individuals who carry the Qatari ID also include Saad bin Saad Mohammed al-Kaabi, Abdullatif bin Abdullah al-Kuwari, Ibrahim Eissa Al-Hajji Mohammed Al-Baker, Mubarak Mohammed al-Ajji, Khalid Saeed al-Bounein, Rachid Salem Rachid, Mohmmed Faysal Hamad Al-Suaidi, Mohammed Jaber Salim Meshaab, Abdullah Soliman Saad, Abdullah Shaker Shams Al-Deen Al-Shaibani.

Egyptian individuals are Dahi Mohamed Mostafa Senger, Ahmed Samir Al-Habib, Ahmed Eid Salem Al-Hegawi, Hassan Saad Shetewi, in addition to the Jordanian brothers Abd al-Malik and Ashraf Muhammad Yusuf Uthman.
The Qatari list also included eight entities, including the IS's Sinai Province in Egypt and Al-Ihsan Charitable Society in Yemen. Al-Ihsan is a charitable organization led by alleged al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) supporter Abdullah Mohammed al-Yazidi.
Although Al-Ihsan has been designated by the Quartet in July, 2017, as a terrorist organization, the organization denied any connection with terrorist entities.
أصدرت وزارة الداخلية القطرية قائمة للإرهاب تضمنت 19 شخصاً و8 كيانات، وتضمنت القائمة 10 أشخاص ممن تم إدراجهم سابقاً في القوائم الثلاث التي أصدرتها دول المقاطعة. بعيدا عن المكابرة قطر تؤكد الأدلة ضدها وأن دعمها للتطرف والإرهاب جوهر أزمتها.
