Fight against terrorism: EU strengthens its legal arsenal against ISIL/Da’esh and Al-Qaida


On 20 September 2016, the Council adopted a legal framework  which, for the first time, will allow the EU to apply sanctions autonomously to ISIL/Da’esh and Al-Qaida and persons and entities associated or supporting them. Until now sanctions could only be applied to persons and entities listed by the United Nations or by EU member states acting individually.
