On 24 June, OFAC announced that it had designated senior IRGC commanders said to be behind Iran’s “destructive and destabilising activities”. These are 8 senior commanders of Navy, Aerospace, and Ground Forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), who are said to sit atop a bureaucracy that supervises the IRGC’s regional activities. Also designated is the country’s Supreme Leader. A new Executive Order imposes asset freezes and blocking measures on Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and his office, anyone appointed by him or his office as state officials. The US has said Iran’s Foreign Minister Zarif will be sanctioned shortly.
