Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - New sanctions were announced only days after prisoner swap between Tehran and Washington.

The US has imposed fresh sanctions on Iran, including an airline and the country's shipping industry, the media reported.

While announcing the sanctions on Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said that Iran "uses its aviation and shipping industries to supply regional terrorist and militant groups with weapons, directly contributing to the devastating humanitarian crises in Syria and Yemen".

"Aviation and shipping industries should be vigilant and not allow their industries to be exploited by terrorist," Mnuchin added.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the media in Washington that three general sales agents of Mahan Air were part of the new anti-Iran sanctions, reports Press TV.

The new sanctions were announced only days after prisoner swap between Tehran and Washington.

Wednesday's development follows a US sanctions announcement on December 6 that targeted Iraqi leaders of three Iran-backed militias for killing innocent civilians who were protesting economic conditions and foreign interference in their country.
