E.O. 13224 Designation of Abu Anas al-Ghandour, aka Ahmed 
Ghandour, aka Ahmad Ghandour, aka Ahmad Naji al-Ghandur, aka Abu-Anas, 
as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist

    Acting under the authority of and in accordance with section 1(b) 
of Executive Order 13224 of September 23, 2001, as amended by Executive 
Order 13268 of July 2, 2002, and Executive Order 13284 of January 23, 
2003, I hereby determine that the person known as Abu Anas al-Ghandour, 
also known as Ahmed Ghandour, also known as Ahmad Ghandour, also known 
as Ahmad Naji al-Ghandur, also known as Abu-Anas, committed, or poses a 
significant risk of committing, acts of terrorism that threaten the 
security of U.S. nationals or the national security, foreign policy, or 
economy of the United States.
    Consistent with the determination in section 10 of Executive Order 
13224 that prior notice to persons determined to be subject to the 
Order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States 
would render ineffectual the blocking and other measures authorized in 
the Order because of the ability to transfer funds instantaneously, I 
determine that no prior notice needs to be provided to any person 
subject to this determination who might have a constitutional presence 
in the United States, because to do so would render ineffectual the 
measures authorized in the Order.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register.

Rex W. Tillerson,
Secretary of State.
