US targets Iran with fresh sanctions against airlines
The US Treasury Department has hit Iran with new and heavy sanctions. They target several Iranian airlines that the US claims were delivering weapons to proxy forces in Syria and Lebanon.
Pompeo demanded that Iran halt all uranium enrichment, stop its ballistic missile program, and give nuclear inspectors access to the entire country, or else face the “strongest sanctions in history.”
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called the US demands unacceptable, and an Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander told Iranian media that the people of Iran should “deliver a strong punch to the mouth” of Pompeo in response.
