On Wednesday, the US imposed new sanctions on Iran, adding 20 individuals and entities, along with several tankers, on a sanctions list. The US Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control said in a statement that the US "took action against a large shipping network that is directed by and financially supports the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF) and its terrorist proxy Hizballah."
