US SANCTIONS IRAQI CARRIER THAT SOLD AIRLINERS TO IRANIAN AIRLINE


If you were distressed to read my article about how Mahan Air, the Iranian airline that transports Hezbollah agents around the world, and assists the IRGC in shipping arms & ammunition to Syria, used Iraq-based Al-Naser Airlines to front for the purchases, evading sanctions, read on. The Treasury Department sanctioned Al-Nasar, using its counter-terrorism authority, on May 21, 2015.

Al-Naser, which has facilities in Iraq, Dubai, and Jordan, allowed Mahan Air to perform a successful end run around the sanctions that prohibit the transfer of aircraft to Iranian entities. You may access the complete text of the press release here*.
