Iranian anger due to European Union sanctions

Iran condemned the European Union’s imposition of new sanctions on high-level officials and the Revolutionary Guard against the backdrop of supplying Russia and Tehran’s allies in the Middle East with drones.
The European sanctions targeted Iranian Defense Minister Mohammad Reza Ashtiani, the commander of the Quds Force in the Revolutionary Guard, Ismail Qaani, and other officials.
The sanctions also affected a command center affiliated with the armed forces, the head of a government airline company, and the Kavan Electronic Company in Behrad.
The Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs described these measures as “unfortunate,” considering that they are based on “repeated, ridiculous and baseless pretexts and accusations.”
Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani also said in a statement, “The European Union has once again resorted to the outdated and ineffective tool of sanctions against the powerful Iran.”
The sanctions prevent any EU citizen or company from dealing with the individuals and organizations on the list.
The United States and its allies, including Israel, accuse Iran of supplying its allies in the Middle East, especially Lebanese Hezbollah and the Houthis in Yemen, with drones.
Also, Kiev and its Western allies accuse Iran of providing Russia with drones for use in the war in Ukraine. Tehran denied that it had provided Moscow with drones for use in the war that began in early 2022.
