The US government has imposed sanctions on two men from Bahrain and has placed them on a terrorist list on Friday.
The two, Ahmad Hassan Yousuf and Mortada Majid Ramadan Alawi, have been placed by the US Treasury Department on the list of economic sanctions and banned financial dealings with them.
The US state department said in a statement that the two have been placed on the terrorist list in accordance with a previous executive order for those who pose threats to US interests.
The US foreign ministry explained that the decision to place the two on the list came “after the escalation of rebel attacks in Bahrain, where Iran has provided arms, funding and training the rebels.”
It added that this was “a further step in the ongoing effort to forcefully confront Iran's activities that seek to destabilize the region and promote activities relating to terrorism.”
