The administration of President Donald Trump unleashed a new round of sanctions against Iran on Friday, following through on the administration's red line from earlier in the week.
What are the full details of the sanctions, and how will they affect the dynamic between the U.S. and Iran going forward? Here are five things you need to know about these new sanctions.

According to CNN, the sanctions are slapped onto "25 individuals and companies connected to Iran's ballistic missile program and those providing support to Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps' Qods Force," which involved "three separate networks linked to supporting the missile program."Read the rest of the story HERE and follow links to related stories below:
