US sanctions Iranian operatives it says are involved in overseas assassination plots

The United States imposed sanctions on members and associates of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and its external operations branch, accusing them of taking part in terrorist plots against former U.S. government officials, people with dual citizenship with the United States and Iran, and Iranian dissidents.

The U.S. Treasury Department said the move targeted three Iran- and Turkey-based individuals and a company affiliated with the IRGC-Qods Force and two senior officials of the IRGC’s Intelligence Organization involved in plotting external lethal operations against civilians, including journalists.
