Canada sanctions more Iran guard corps members


Ottawa is adding more Iranian individuals and companies to its sanctions list after the government faced heavy criticism at a diaspora event this weekend, Paralel.Az reports citing Globalnews.

The new sanctions apply to eight people, as well as a company that creates armoured vehicles and a cybersecurity training institute.

The Tehran commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, a branch of Iran’s military known as the IRGC, is on the list, as are officials involved in using drones and ballistic missiles in regions of Iran populated by minority groups.
