The five people were also considered to have played a key role in facilitating the travel of extremist jihadist group to Syria and other areas where ISIS operates. 

In a statement published on the website of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, quoted on Tuesday, May 10, Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Brian E. Nelson said the five people and their own network conducted financial transfers to support ISIS efforts in Syria-based refugee camps by collecting funds in Indonesia and Turkey.
