The US unleashed its “toughest ever” sanctions against Iran today.
The Trump administration is reinstating all sanctions removed under the 2015 Nuclear Deal, targeting both Iran and states that trade with it.
It will hit oil exports, shipping, banks, and all core parts of the economy.
Meanwhile, Iran’s military was quoted saying, it would hold air defence drills today and tomorrow, to prove the country’s capabilities.
Rejecting calls for talks, thousands of Iranians protested yesterday, chanting “Death to America”.
