EU imposes sanctions on top Syrian military intelligence official

The European Union imposed sanctions on a senior Syrian military intelligence official on Friday, adding him to a list of more than 200 Syrians subject to an EU asset freeze. General Muhammad al-Mahalla has been head of the internal affairs branch of Syrian Military Intelligence since April, the EU’s Official Journal said. The EU accused him of being “responsible for repression and violence against the civilian population in Damascus/Damascus countryside.”
