On May 22, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctioned five Iranians for providing ballistic missiles and technical expertise to Houthi fighters engaged in the Yemen war. Those sanctioned include Mahmud Bagheri Kazemabad, Mohammad Agha Ja’fari, Javad Bordbar Shir Amin, Mehdi Azarpisheh, and Sayyed Mohammad Ali Haddadnezhad Tehrani of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qod Force (IRGC-QF).


According to Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin, “Their actions have enabled the Houthis to launch missiles at Saudi cities and oil infrastructure. They have also disrupted humanitarian aid efforts in Yemen, and threatened freedom of navigation in key regional waterways.” The sanctions follow Secretary of State Pompeo’s statement on May 21 that the United States would address Iranian involvement in Yemen.
