the Arabian Peninsula and Other Aliases as a Specially Designated 
Global Terrorist Entity Pursuant to Executive Order 13224

    Based upon a review of the administrative record assembled in this 
matter, and in consultation with the Attorney General and the Secretary 
of the Treasury, I have concluded that there is a sufficient factual 
basis to find that al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula (and other 
aliases) uses the additional aliases Sons of Abyan, Sons of Hadramawt, 
Sons of Hadramawt Committee, Civil Council of Hadramawt, and National 
Hadramawt Council.
    Therefore, pursuant to Section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224, I 
hereby amend the designation of al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula (and 
other aliases) as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist to include 
Sons of Abyan, Sons of Hadramawt, Sons of Hadramawt Committee, Civil 
Council of Hadramawt, and National Hadramawt Council as aliases.
    This determination shall be published in the Federal Register.

    Dated: May 15, 2017.
Rex Tillerson,
Secretary of State.
