Iran has imposed sanctions on fifteen US companies for alleged human rights violations and cooperating with Israel against Palestinians.

Quoting Iran's foreign ministry, the state news agency IRNA reported today that the sanctions encompass seizure of assets of the companies and ban on contacts with them.

The Iranian move comes two days after the United States imposed sanctions on thirty foreign companies and individuals for allegedly violating export controls on Iran, North Korea and Syria.
