The U.S. has designated a large web of front companies and entities which are part of Iran’s jihad operations in Iraq, where U.S. troops have been under attack by jihadi groups armed and funded by Iran.
According to the U.S. Treasury Department, the sanctions are aimed at “Iraq-based front companies, senior officials, and business associates that provide support to, or act for or on behalf of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF), in addition to transferring lethal aid to Iranian-backed terrorist militias in Iraq, such as Kata’ib Hizballah (KH) and Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq (AAH).”
