The United States Department of Treasury announced Monday that it sanctioned Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) cooperative Foundation and senior Iranian officials.

According to the statement, the US is imposing sanctions on the organization in accordance with the UK and the EU, as they believe the sanctions “target a key economic pillar of the IRGC”.

The sanctioned figures include five IRGC’s board members, the deputy minister of intelligence and security, and four senior IRGC commanders in Iran said the statement.

According to the US, the sanctioned figures are involved in the brutal suppression of the Iranian protesters in Iran, and the imposed sanctions by the US and its allies happened after the violent crackdown by them.

The protests occurred after the passing of Mahsa Amini, 22; she died while she was in Iran’s morality police custody. Then widespread anti-government demonstrations around the country took place.

According to Brian Nelson, the statement made clear that the US was committed to helping the Iranian people in their efforts to secure human rights and other fundamental freedoms.

Since the protests began, the US has designated senior members of the IRGC Cooperative Foundation and other senior Iranian officials in a nightly round.
