The United States and the United Kingdom have announced a third round of sanctions on Hamas and its Iranian backers in response to last month's attack on Israel. The sanctions target key Hamas officials and the mechanisms by which Iran supports Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. The US Treasury Department stated that Iran's support enables Hamas and PIJ's terrorist activities through the transfer of funds, weapons, and operational training. The sanctions include targeting Palestinian Islamic Jihad's representative to Iran and a Lebanon-based money exchange allegedly involved in transfers between Hamas and Tehran. The US and its partners will continue to work to deny Hamas the ability to raise and use funds for its atrocities.
