The Trump administration is imposing sanctions specifically on 13 people and 12 entities, which are "networks and supporters of Iran's ballistic missile procurement."

This comes after Iran initiated a ballistic missile test, which the Trump administration says violated the Iran Nuclear Deal. The other day, Michael Flynn said the country was officially put "on notice." 20 Senators also wrote a letter to Trump, asking for "full enforcement of existing sanctions and the imposition of additional sanctions on Iran for its ballistic missile program," according to NBC.
