The United States on Tuesday slapped fresh sanctions on Syria, targeting its central bank and blacklisting several people and entities in a continued effort to cut off funds for President Bashar al-Assad’s government, APA reports quoting Reuters.

The latest action, building on sanctions imposed on Syria earlier this year, marked another round in a U.S. campaign to push Assad’s government back into U.N.-led negotiations to end the country’s nearly decade-long war.

“The  United States will  continue to seek accountability for those prolonging this conflict,” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement.
