Iran and Russian Federation used the scheme to prop up the Assad regime and fund the Iranian regime's malign activity in Syria, according to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Syrian national Hajji Abd Al-Nasir, Lebanon national Muhammad Qasim Al-Bazzal and Russian national Andrey Dogaev, as well as Iranian nationals Rasoul Sajjad and Hossein Yaghoubi Miab are among the sanctioned individuals, the statement said.

Mandelker added that the US will seek to impose sanctions against any party involved in shipping oil to Syria, or seeking to evade our sanctions on Iranian oil.

The US State Department in a release issued on November 20, mentioned that the sanctions directly target the Iranian regime's exploitation of the worldwide financial system to hide revenue streams it uses to fund terrorist activities and provide support to sectarian militias responsible for abuses against the civilian population in the Middle East and destabilize the region.

In addition to Alchwiki, Treasury sanctioned: Andrey Dogaev, identified as first deputy director of Promsyrioimport; Rasul Sajjad and Hossein Yaghoobi, identified as the worldwide department director and vice governor for global affairs, respectively, at the Central Bank of Iran; Muhammad Qasim al-Bazzal, identified as a Hezbollah member and associate of Qasir.

There are difficulties in the European Union (EU) to find a seat of a special mechanism that maintains commercial ties with Iran and avoids USA anti-Iran sanctions, he said.

Russian Federation and Iran are yet to comment on these accusations and sanctions. "Therefore, economic pressure through oil supply shutdown becomes a tool of the new economic war with Bashar Assad and indirectly with Moscow and Iran", he said. "The Iranian regime assists Syria in paying Russian Federation for the oil".

Trump withdrew the United States from a landmark nuclear deal with Iran last May but the remaining signatories to the agreement - Russia, China, Britain, Germany and France - have been trying to preserve the deal.

"Those who facilitate the financial transfers, logistics, or insurance associated with these or other petroleum shipments are at risk of being targeted by the United States for sanctions", it warned. "This will be our answer, (it is) much more effective than counter sanctions", he added.

Promsyrioimport said on its website that its focus is the "implementation of state energy policy".

All property and interests in property of those sanctioned targets that were subject to US jurisdiction would be blocked, and USA persons were generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with them.

The United States is at odds with key European allies Britain, France and Germany as well as with Russian Federation and China over U.S. President Donald Trump's May 8 decision to abandon the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, negotiated with the other world powers during Democratic President Barack Obama's administration. Both groups are designated as terrorist organizations by the U.S.

Trump restored USA sanctions on November 5 and has threatened more action to stop its "outlaw" policies.
