The US Treasury Department added the Iranian media to the sanctions list, which has taken a pro-government position and condemned women’s desire to remove hijabs.

The US Treasury Department added three local media outlets to the list of sanctions against Iran: the Fars, Tasnim agency and the Press TV channel. Interfax reported this on Friday, September 15.

Sanctions were also imposed against the Yaftar company, which, as reported by the ministry, “is associated with systematic censorship and blocking of Internet access.”

In addition, 25 individuals were added to the blacklist, some of whom were representatives of law enforcement agencies and soldiers of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The tightening of sanctions against Iran coincides with the anniversary of the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. His funeral on September 16, 2022 sparked widespread protests across the Islamic republic.

Earlier in the day, a commission of Iran’s parliament approved tougher penalties for breaking the law on forced wearing of the hijab.

Let’s remember that the tightening of the law was the response of the country’s leadership to the protests of 2022, which appeared against the backdrop of the killing by the Iranian moral police of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. The woman was detained for violating the rules of wearing a hijab.
