DUBAI Iran has imposed sanctions on fifteen U.S. companies for alleged human legal rights violations and cooperating with Israel, the state information agency IRNA documented on Sunday.
The agency quoted Iran’s foreign ministry as saying the companies experienced “flagrantly violated human legal rights” and cooperated with Israel towards the Palestinians.
It was not quickly obvious if any of the companies, which integrated defense technologies agency Raytheon, experienced any dealings with Iran or whether or not they would be influenced in any way by Tehran’s action, which IRNA reported would contain seizure of their assets and a ban on contacts with them.
The Iranian go arrived two times soon after the United States imposed sanctions on thirty foreign companies or folks for transferring sensitive technologies to Iran for its missile plan, or for violating export controls on Iran, North Korea and Syria.
