Beirut- The Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah on Friday slammed new sanctions by the European Union against Iran, saying 'international evil powers once again agreed' to hit Tehran with their 'bankrupt decisions.'
On Thursday, European Union foreign ministers slapped sanctions on more than 180 Iranian companies and individuals.
'These sanctions are part of the international campaign against Iran, Syria, the people of the region and the axis of resistance. It targets people who resist Western hostility that has been ongoing for decades,' the movement said in a statement.
Hezbollah is trained and financed by Iran and is supported by the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
