WASHINGTON – Today, the Justice Department, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of the Treasury announced the dismantling of three terrorist financing cyber-enabled campaigns, involving the al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s military wing, al-Qaeda, and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (“ISIS”). This coordinated operation is detailed in three forfeiture complaints and a criminal complaint unsealed today in the District of Columbia. These actions represent the government’s largest-ever seizure of cryptocurrency in the terrorism context, following investigations by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Philadelphia, Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation Cyber Crimes Unit (Washington, D.C.), and Federal Bureau of Investigation Washington D.C., New York, and Los Angeles field offices.
