US says firms helped Iranian airline skirt sanctions

Published: 12.12.13, 07:00 / Israel News

Nineteen people and companies in Europe and Asia acted as middlemen for Iranian airline Mahan Air, helping it procure supplies from the United States in violation of US sanctions, the US Commerce Department said on Wednesday.


The regulatory notice from the department posted online provided further insight into the operations of Mahan Air, a commercial airline that the United States has accused of providing funds and transport for Iran's elite forces and flying weapons to Syria. (Reuters)
