U.S., U.K., Australia Sanction Hamas-Affiliated Crypto Transaction Facilitators

No specific crypto addresses were added to the Specially Designated Nationals list, unlike typical crypto sanctions. Instead, a press release cited Israel’s National Bureau for Counter Terror Financing (NBCTF) freezing 189 crypto addresses associated with three exchanges, one of which is Al-Markaziya Li-Siarafa , a company based in Gaza and Turkiye owned by Zuhair Shamlakh, an individual whose companies provide support for Hamas using crypto and fiat.
