Sanctions Update

Eight senior US-sanctioned military and security officials have been involved in the crackdown on protesters inside Iran and the regime’s devastating regional activities, including a recent missile attack on two US military bases in Iraq.

Iranian Response to Sanctions

  • We laughed at the new US sanctions!
  • America had no new sanctions, re-enforced previous sanctions!
  • Iran’s steel, iron, copper and aluminum industries were previously banned in May by the US Treasury.
  • These industries have been on the boycott list since last year, after the United States left Brajam, and the new psychological warfare is ineffective!
  • It should be noted that the export of Iranian steelmakers in December, despite all the absurd Trump sanctions, jumped 2%.
