Rewards for Justice is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information that leads to the disruption of the financial mechanisms of Hizballah. Muhammad Qasim al-Bazzal, also known as Mohamad Bazzal and Mu’In, is a key Hizballah official whose responsibilities include balancing the financial accounting between Hizballah and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF).

Al-Bazzal is a co-founder of the Syria-based front company Talaqi Group and oversees other terrorist-financing enterprises, such as Hokoul S.A.L. Offshore and Nagham Al Hayat. As chairman of Talaqi Group’s board of directors, al-Bazzal oversees the company’s finances, procedures, administration, and contracts. Since late 2018, al-Bazzal has used the Talaqi Group and his other companies to finance, coordinate, and obscure various illicit IRGC-QF-linked oil shipments. Al-Bazzal also has overseen Talaqi Group’s partnership with Lebanon-based ALUMIX for aluminum shipments to Iran. 

On November 20, 2018, the U.S. Department of the Treasury designated al-Bazzal as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist pursuant to Executive Order 13224, as amended. As a result of this designation, among other consequences, all property and interests in property of al-Bazzal that are subject to U.S. jurisdiction are blocked, and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with al-Bazzal. In addition, it is a crime to knowingly provide, or attempt or conspire to provide, material support or resources to Hizballah, a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. On September 4, 2019, the Department of the Treasury also designated Hokoul S.A.L. Offshore, Talaqi Group, Nagham Al Hayat, and ALUMIX for being owned or controlled by al-Bazzal.
