February 16, 2021: OFAC revokes counter-terror General Licenses & related FAQs, updates and removes some counter terror & Yemen listings

On Tuesday, OFAC revoked Counter Terrorism General Licenses 9 (Official US Government Business), 10 (Official International Organization Activities), 11 (Support of NGO Activities in Yemen), 12 (Export/Re-export of Agricultural Commodities, Medicine, Medical Devices, Replacement Parts and Components or Software Updates) and 13 (Transactions involving Ansrallah). Along with that, FAQs 875, 876 & 877 are being removed from OFAC’s website.
