"H.R. 2712 would expand federal sanctions and reporting requirements related to illicit interactions with Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). It would direct the President to identify in a report to the Congress and impose sanctions on foreign people and entities that have assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support to designated individuals and entities that are members or agents of Hamas or PIJ, or to individuals and entities that support the activities of the two terrorist organizations. The bill also would direct the President to identify and impose sanctions on individuals who engage in significant transactions with designated individuals and entities within Hamas and PIJ's nexus. Additionally, the bill would direct the President to identify in a report and impose sanctions on foreign governments that have provided material support to international terrorism and specifically to Hamas and PIJ. Finally, the bill would require a report to the Congress on the activities of foreign countries intended to disrupt the global fundraising, financing, and money laundering activities of Hamas and PIJ."
