Therefore, pursuant to Section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224, I hereby amend the designation of Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist to include the following new aliases: Khalid bin Al-Walid Army, also known as Khalid ibn al-Walid Army, also known as Khalid Bin-al-Walid Army, also known as Khalid Bin AlWaleed army, also known as Jaysh Khalid Bin-al-Walid, also known as Jaish Khaled Bin Alwaleed, also known as Jaysh Khaled bin Al Walid, also known as Army of Khaled Bin Alwaleed.
