Iranians walk past Sejjil (L) as well as also Qadr-H medium range ballistic missiles displayed next to a portrait of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on September 25, 2017, on Baharestan square in Tehran.

The Treasury announced brand-new sanctions Thursday on several Iranian entities affiliated with the country’s ballistic missile program.

All several Iranian entities are subordinates of the Iranian company Shahid Bakeri Industrial Group.

The brand-new restrictions will prevent the entities through dealing financially with U.S. citizens as well as also financial institutions.

The announcement comes as tens of thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets, including inside nation’s capital of Tehran, to protest the government.
