Pentagon: US sanctions have limited effect on Iran’s operations in Syria

The US Defense Department’s Inspector General said in a report on Monday. “US sanctions re-imposed on Iran in August and November 2018 have had a limited effect on Iran’s ability to operate in Syria.” The first round of sanctions came into force in August, followed by a second round, an embargo on Iran’s oil sales, on November 5. However, the report added that US Treasury designations imposed in late November against an illicit Russia-Iran oil transfer network in Syria could have an effect on the Iranian regime’s funding of terrorist organizations.
