Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued a statement today after the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced new sanctions against an Iranian-Russian oil network backing the Assad Regime, Hizballah, and Hamas:

“New U.S. sanctions strike a significant blow against an Iranian-Russian oil scheme to prop up Syria’s murderous Assad regime and to fund the IRGC-Qods Forces, Hizballah, Hamas and other terrorists. The United States and the civilized world must do all we can to counter these international threats.”
