The U.S. has imposed new sanctions against the Syrian military, 18 government officials and a tech company, just days before the President-elect Donald Trump is due to take office.
The reason cited was “in response to the use of chemical weapons” by the Syrian government, despite no solid evidence being provided.

The US State Department claimed in a statement cited Saturday in an AP report that the fresh sanctions were imposed “in response to the use of chemical weapons” by the Syrian government without pointing to a specific case and years after Damascus gave up its remaining stockpile of chemical weapons, which were transferred out of the country by UN inspectors for eventual destruction at sea.
Syrian government has insisted that its possession of the chemicals were a deterrent measure in response to the threat of Israeli regime’s undeclared possession of nuclear weapons amid its persisting aggression against the Arab country and annexation of Syrian territories in Golan Heights.
According to the report, the US Treasury Department imposed sanctions on 18 senior Syrian officials for alleged links to the Syrian military and “use of chemical weapons,” as well as five branches of Syria’s military: the Syrian Arab Air Force, Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces, Syrian Arab Army, Syrian Arab Navy and Syrian Arab Republican Guard.
The State Department statement, issued on Thursday, further accused the Syrian tech company of “importing advanced strategic technologies for surface-to-surface missile and rocket programs in Syria,” the report added.
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons,” said the spokesman for the National Security Council, Ned Price.
The State Department also claimed that the sanctions target “the assets of WMD proliferators and their supporters in an effort to curb the spread of WMD and protect the US financial system from being exploited by proliferators,” noting that the measure further bans Americans from doing business with any of these individuals or entities and freezes any assets they have in the United States.
Washington sometimes imposes imaginary sanctions against officials and entities of foreign governments that it considers hostile to its global interests and policies knowing well that they hold no assets or funds in any US territory.
The US and its Western European allies have been among major sponsors of a foreign-backed terrorist campaign across Syria since 2011 and have falsely blamed repeated use of chemical agents against civilians by the terror elements on the Syrian government forces.
This is while UN-affiliated international anti-chemical agencies have found no conclusive proof of any government role in chemical attacks within Syria. Foreign-backed militants in the country, are known to have seized poisonous gases from Syrian chemical facilities since they captured territories across the nation since they began their terror campaign.
