USA imposes new sanctions on Iran after missile test

"As Iran suspended granting visa to American citizens in response to Islamophobic action of the U.S. administration, now in retaliation to fresh sanctions by USA, the Islamic Republic will impose legal constraints against a number of American individuals and entities who have had a role in supporting terrorist groups in region or have massacred innocent, defenceless civilians in the region", the statement announced.

Washington added more Iranian individuals and entities to its anti-Iran sanction list on Friday.

Yesterday, the Trump administration appeared poised to levy fresh sanctions on Iran in what would mark the first concrete evidence of the new president's tougher stance, hours after he and his national security advisor put Iran "on notice" over missile tests and support for Yemeni rebels.

Iran is to test its missile and radar systems, a day after US President Donald Trump imposed sanctions on Tehran for a recent ballistic missile test. "I think that we will have further updates for you on those additional actions This will not go un-responded to".

Also under the 2015 United Nations resolution endorsing the deal, Iran was asked to refrain from work on ballistic missiles created to deliver nuclear weapons for up to eight years.

"We'll never initiate war, but we can only rely on our own means of defense", Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif wrote on Twitter before the announcement.

The option front and center, though, is imposing new sanctions.

Iran is all set to deploy missiles for a Revolutionary Guards exercise on Saturday as a retaliatory move, after the United States on Friday imposed sanctions on Iran for conducting ballistic missile tests last week.

The country said it will deploy missiles and carry out maneuvers aimed at demonstrating its "complete preparedness to deal with the threats" and "humiliating sanctions" from Washington.

That was followed up by tweets from President Trump this morning.

Senior White House administration officials told ABC News Thursday that new sanctions on Iran are "in the works" and could come "as soon as tomorrow". "Should have been thankful for the awful deal the US made with them!"

Iran confirmed it had tested a new missile but said it did not breach a nuclear accord reached with world powers or a U.N. Security Council resolution that endorsed the pact.

Those targeted by the Treasury Department include various agents, companies and associates involved in procuring ballistic missile technology for Iran.
