(Worthy News) - The United States has imposed sanctions on two networks it says are engaged in "covert procurement activities" benefiting Iranian military organizations and supporting Iran's "missile proliferation programs," the Treasury Department has said.
One of the networks used a Hong Kong-based front company to "evade U.S. and international sanctions and facilitate tens of millions of dollars' worth of proliferation activities targeting U.S. technology and components, for persons related to the [Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps] (IRGC) and the Iranian regime," the Treasury said in a statement.
