The US imposed sanctions against six more Syrian officials

Representatives of President Bashar al-Assad's inner circle were included in Washington's extended sanctions list.





The United States imposed restrictive measures against six Syrians close to President Bashar al-Assad. This is stated in a statement by the US Treasury Department released on Thursday, August 20.

Thus, the new sanctions list includes representatives of the head of the state's apparatus, the leadership of the ruling Arab Socialist Renaissance Party, as well as the military command.

In addition, the sanctions, introduced to “force the regime of Bashar al-Assad to stop attacks on the Syrian people,” affected two advisers to the Syrian leader — Yasser Hussein Ibrahim and Luna al-Shibl.

According to the US department, the persons affected by the restrictive measures “are actively involved in repression by the Assad regime.”

We will remind, Washington warned about tougher sanctions against Syria until the government changes in the country.

Earlier, four people were included in the US blacklist, in particular, the son of the Syrian leader Hafez Assad, and ten companies.
