The US Department of State has imposed sanctions on 18 Iranian entities and individuals, believed to be linked to the Iranian ballistic missile program, stressing that Tehran’s policies continue to “undermine the foundations of peace and security, granted in the nuclear deal.”

4 Chinese and a Turkish company were also added to the list.

Additionally, the US Department of Treasury imposed further sanctions on 7 Iranian entities and 5 individuals under the pretext of supporting “criminal activities”, declaring that the new sanctions are targeting figures linked to the Iranian missile program.

In the same context, sanctions are also targeting individuals and entities involved in the operations of electronic piracy, stressing that a “criminal organization”, run by the two Iranian businessmen who were involved in the theft of the American computer programs, have fallen under sanctions as well.

It is worth mentioning that ballistic missile tests are not part of the Iranian nuclear deal.
