EU to place fresh sanctions on Iran over protest crackdown

Source: Deutsche Welle [German state media]

“Foreign ministers of the European Union are expected to sign off on fresh sanctions on Iran on Monday. German news agency DPA reported that the new sanctions will target roughly three dozen Iranian individuals and organizations. The move would be the EU’s fourth round of sanctions on Iran since widespread protests emerged after 23-year-old Kurdish woman Jina Mahsa Amini died in the custody of the morality police last year.” (01/23/23)
