The US has decided to impose sanctions on nine more individuals and 16 organizations in Iran, the Treasury Department said.

"The U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took action against 25 individuals and entities, including a network of Iran, UAE, and Turkey-based front companies, that have transferred over a billion dollars and euros to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Iran's Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL), in addition to procuring millions of dollars' worth of vehicles for MODAFL", Sputnik reported.

The list of sanctions includes the companies Ansar Bank, Atlas Exchange, Iranian Atlas Company, Colden Commodities LLC, and others.

During the past 18 months, four front companies that were sanctioned on Tuesday — the UAE-based Sakan General Trading, Lebra Moon General Trading, and Naria General Trading, as well as Iran-based Hital Exchange — provided the equivalent of approximately $800 million in funds to Ansar Exchange, according to the release.

Additionally, the Turkey-based Atlas Doviz acted as a secondary foreign currency provider for Ansar Exchange, the release said.

The sanctions block access to assets in the United States of targeted individuals and entities and prohibit transactions with US citizens and residents.
