U.S. Treasury sanctions Nasrallah

The United States and its Gulf partners on Wednesday imposed additional sanctions on the leadership of the Hezbollah terrorist organization, including its Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah and his deputy Naim Qassem.

The U.S. Treasury Department said four other individuals were also sanctioned, as was the Islamic State (ISIS) in the Greater Sahara. It was the third round of sanctions announced by Washington since the United States pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal last week.
