On Thursday, The United States (US) Department of Treasury imposed sanctions on individuals, networks, and companies for facilitating oil transportation to the Syrian government.

The Treasury Department reported that it sanctioned four individuals, including Muhammad al-Qaterji and his company, which supervised oil bargains between the IS and the Syrian government. The sanctions also included five fuel companies in Lebanon, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates.  

The US Department of State noted that the sanctions included Syrians Yasser Abdullah, Adnan al-Ali, and Muhammad Qaterji, as well as Fadi Nasir, who is Lebanese. The sanctions also included Qaterji’s company, which is based in Syria, and the companies of Nasco for chemicals and Abar for oil services based in Lebanon. The sanctions included the companies of International Pipelines and Sonix for investments based in the United Arab Emirates.

The US Department of State said that it sanctioned individuals and entities for facilitating the transportation of weapons and oil and providing financial services to the Syrian government.

The sanctions freeze the individuals' and companies’ assets in the US and prevent US citizens and companies from dealing with the sanctioned individuals and companies.

The US Department of State added that the sanctions show that the US continues to take firm procedures to prevent supplying the Syrian government and its allies with financial support. The State Department assured that Washington would continue to use all means available to overthrow Assad’s government.

Earlier, the US sanctioned Syrian government officials and ministers, the commander of the Hezbollah militia and his deputy,  as well as companies, and individuals who supported the al-Quds Corps Iranian Militia, which joined the Syrian government in killing Syrians.
