BREAKING: Trump Administration Unveils New Sanctions on Iran Following Attack on US Troops

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.10.20

The Trump administration unveiled new sanctions against the Islamic Regime in Iran Friday; announcing the crackdown after leaders in Tehran launched a series of missile attacks against US troops in Iraq.

“The Trump administration announced new sanctions on Iran Friday targeting the country’s metals sector and several of its government leaders following Tehran’s missile attacks on Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops earlier this week,” reports The Hill.

 

“We are announcing additional sanctions on the Iranian regime as a result of the attack on U.S. and allied troops,” Mnuchin said. “Today’s sanctions are part of our commitment to stop the Iranian regime’s global terrorist activities.”

“I think we have 100 percent confidence and we are consistent in our view that the economic sanctions are working,” Mnuchin said. “That if we didn’t have these sanctions in place, literally Iran would have tens of billions of dollars. They would be using that for terrorist activities throughout the region and to enable them to do more bad things.”
