On 2 May 2023, for the second time this year, the US and Turkish governments took joint action in imposing sanctions. Specifically, the United States and Türkiye imposed sanctions against two individuals determined to be financial facilitators of Syria-based terrorist groups Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham and Katibat al-Tawhid wal-Jihad, both of which are sanctioned by the United States and the United Nations. This follows a prior joint action in January targeting parties associated with the financial facilitation network of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
