The U.S. Treasury Department announced Thursday it has imposed sanctions on 11 entities and individuals for supporting Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) for cyber-attacks against the United States.

The sanctions targeted one entity engaging in supporting IRGC ballistic missile program, two Ukraine-based entities supporting designated airlines, and two Iran-based networks responsible for cyber-enabled attacks against the U.S. financial system, said the Treasury in a statement.

"Treasury will continue to take strong actions to counter Iran's provocations, including support for the IRGC-Qods Force and terrorist extremists, the ongoing campaign of violence inSyria, and cyber-attacks meant to destabilize the U.S. financial system," said U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in a statement.

Treasury's actions will freeze all the assets the designated entities and individuals may hold in the United States and generally prohibit U.S. individuals from doing business with them.
