Turkey has frozen the assets of 17 people and four organizations under Law No. 6415 on the Prevention of the Financing of Terrorism, local media reported on Thursday.

The decision by the Treasury and Finance Ministry, which was published in the Official Gazette on Thursday, includes people and organizations suspected of financing the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and can be appealed at the relevant Ankara High Criminal Court, according to Turkish media reports.

Among the companies whose assets in Turkey were frozen were DX Milano Commission Trading Co. Ltd., Al Marai Import Export Industry and Trade Co. Ltd., Rsaksouk Gold International Import Export Industry and Trade Co. Ltd. and Universal Logistic Import Export Fair Organization Co. Ltd.

Turkey declared ISIL a terrorist organization in 2013 and has been attacked by the jihadist group multiple times since then. A total of 315 people were killed and hundreds more were injured in at least 10 suicide bombings, seven bomb blasts and four armed attacks carried out by ISIL in the country.
