United States has imposed fresh sanctions on Iran for recent ballistic missile tests.

The US treasury department announced the measures against 13 people and a dozen companies.

The measures came after Iran on Sunday test-fired a medium range missile, which the white house contends violated a UN Security Council resolution proscribing missiles that could carry a nuclear device.

President Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor Michael Flynn declared he was “officially putting Iran on notice” over the launch.

The newest sanctions seek to lock those blacklisted out of global trade and finance by banning any American or US-based entities from doing business with them.
