(Iraq Now News)- US Treasury Department announced new sanctions connected to Iran and targeting airlines companies, Al-Arabiya News reported.

According to sources, the sanctions target entities connected with Mahan Air and Meraj Air companies.

Sanctions were also imposed on two Iranians and a Turkish.

These developments come on the heels of similar measures taken on Tuesday targeting five Iranians connected to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Quds Force, better known as IRGC-QF.

Treasury Secretary Steven T.

Mnuchin said in a statement on Thursday, “The facilitators designated by the Treasury today have been procuring parts and providing services for the fleets of sanctioned Iranian airlines, including Mahan Air, Caspian Air, Meraj Air, and Pouya Air.”

“In so doing, they extend a lifeline to the IRGC-QF and enable the Iranian regime to transport weapons, fighters, and money to its proxies, including Hezbollah, and to prop up the brutal Assad regime, ” he added.
