DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran on Tuesday highly condemned brand-new sanctions enforced by the European Union and Britain and stated it would strike back, after the West stepped up pressure on Iran over its crackdown on demonstrations.

“The Islamic Republic will soon announce the list of new sanctions against the human rights violators of EU and England,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani stated in a declaration.

The European Union enforced sanctions on more than 30 Iranian authorities and organisations, consisting of systems of the effective Revolutionary Guards, blaming them for a “brutal” crackdown on discontent and other human rights abuses.

The United States and Britain likewise released brand-new sanctions versus Iran, showing a wear and tear in the West’s currently alarming relations with Tehran.

The sanctions are the most recent action to Iran’s fatal clampdown on discontent after the death of young Iranian Kurdish lady Mahsa Amini in morality authorities custody in September.
