The United States imposed sanctions on the commander of Syria’s 5th Corps, General Milad Judid, and the two sisters of Arab presidential adviser Yasser Ibrahim. This was stated in a statement issued the day before, September 30, by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
“We’re listing 5th Corps Commander Milad Judd for his involvement in obstructing, violating and preventing the establishment of a ceasefire in Syria,” the head of U.S. diplomacy explained, reports Reuters. – In addition, we list Nasrin Ibrahim and Rana Ibrahim, the adult sisters of Yasser Ibrahim, the financial advisor to the Syrian president.
Earlier it was reported that Washington had expanded its sanctions package against Syria, adding six citizens and 13 local companies to the blacklist. The organizations under restrictive measures, according to the U.S. Treasury Department, are associated with one of the Syrian businessmen who is already under U.S. sanctions, as well as the Syrian Ministry of Tourism.
The Syrian army’s 5th Attack Corps was created in November 2016 with the help of Russian military advisers to solve combat tasks during the war in the Arab republic.
