The United States is Imposing Sanctions on Iran Due to the Rocket Attacks
The United States is imposing further sanctions on Iran due to the recent rocket attacks on US targets in Iraq. These are economic sanctions and measures against senior Iranians who were involved in the attacks.
The American minister of finance Steven Mnuchin and his foreign colleague, Mike Pompeo, announced this during a press event in the White House on Friday.
Pompeo is convinced that Iran had the intention of killing American soldiers. “We want Iran to act like a normal country,” he explains.
The new sanctions are directed against Iran’s steel and manufacturing industry, as well as construction, mining and the textile sector.
Besides, eight government employees are being sanctioned.
