AIPAC Statement on Iran Sanctions

AIPAC applauds the Trump Administration's announcement today sanctioning an additional 13 individuals and 12 entities for their support of Iran’s malign activities. Iran has stepped up its aggressive behavior over the last year, highlighted by another ballistic missile test this week. The Trump Administration has made clear that the United States intends to push back against Iran’s unacceptable actions, and these new designations mark an important first step. We also appreciate the bipartisan group of 22 senators who advocated for additional sanctions.
