NHK reported this morning that the Treasury Department announced on Thursday that it imposed sanctions on an additional five Iran-based entities for their involvement in the development of ballistic missiles. The network said the additional sanctions are aimed at demonstrating at home and abroad the U.S.’s tough stance toward the Iranian government and at pushing back against crackdowns on anti-government demonstrations in Iran. According to the network, the Treasury Department announced on Thursday that it sanctioned five Iran-based entities and that the sanctions included freezing their assets within the U.S. The Treasury Department said in a statement: “The Iranian regime prioritizes its ballistic missile program over the economic well-being of the Iranian people….The United States will continue to decisively counter the Iranian regime’s malign activity.”
