Tehran has introduced sanctions against US Ambassador to Yemen Ambassador Christopher Henzel, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Iran justified the move by saying that Henzel's disruptive actions were preventing the warring sides in Yemen from achieving a political solution to the internal conflict.

Henzel wound up in Iran's sanctions list a day after Tehran's own representative to Yemen, Hasan Irlu, was slapped with US sanctions. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) Quds Force, to whom Hasan Irlu purportedly belongs, of supporting Houthi fighters and allegedly fuelling the conflict in Yemen.
