According to a statement cited by the news agency, the two men were blacklisted "for their involvement in terrorist acts".

The statement went on to assert that both Harb and Qablan had been responsible for "supporting the Assad regime [in Syria], sending fighters to Syria, and channeling funds to various factions in Yemen and to military commanders responsible for terrorist operations in the Middle East".
