- Since the signing of Executive Order (EO) 13224 in 2001, over 850 individuals and 550 entities have been sanctioned as Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGT). Over this period, the United States has delisted approximately 100 SDGTs due to death, an entity’s dissolution, or the cessation of an actor’s support for terrorism.
- Since 1997, the US State Department has maintained the list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs), which includes over 60 designated groups encompassing a range of ideologies and geographic areas. Examples of these FTOs include Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, Continuity Irish Republican Army, and the al-Ashtar Brigades (Bahrain).
- Over 380 SDGTs associated with al-Qaida and its affiliated groups have been sanctioned under EO 13224. In recent years, sanctions targeting al-Qaida and its support networks have included a money services bureau in Yemen and a Gulf-based charity leader. Since 2015, more ISIS members and affiliates were sanctioned than any other terrorist group, including al-Qaida and Hizballah.
