Besides Nasrallah and Qassem, the sanctions also target Mohammead Yazbeck, Hussein al- Khalil, and Ibrahim al-Amin al-Sayyed for their terrorism links, said the Treasury.

It was a new round of penalties on Iran and its overseas connections by Washington following US President Donald Trump's announcement of withdrawing from the landmark Iran nuclear deal last week.

The Shura Council is Hizbollah's supreme decision-making body responsible for religious, military, and strategic matters and asserts control over administrative, planning, and policy-making authorities. "By targeting Hezballah's Shura Council, our nations collectively rejected the false distinction between a so-called "Political Wing" and Hezballah's global terrorist plotting", Mnuchin added in the statement.

Berrettini turned on his right ankle at 1-2 in the second set and looked in difficulty, allowing Zverev to push through. Four-time champion Novak Djokovic also advanced, beating Georgian qualifier Nikoloz Basilashvili 6-4, 6-2.

The US government has been expanding sanctions targeting Iranian firms and individuals. It is, however, the first time that the U.S. Treasury has acted against Qassem, who is being listed for his ties to Hezbollah.

The action was undertaken jointly with members of the Terrorist Financing Targeting Center (TFTC): Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Oman. He has also managed "Hezbollah's" bank accounts.

A number of those targeted by the TFTC had been previously blacklisted by the United States.

The TFTC is a bold and historic effort to expand and strengthen the seven member states' cooperation to counter the financing of terrorism.

"The American administration, with all available and possible means, will not be able to damage the strength of the resistance", Nasrallah said on Aug.13 in a televised address to mark the anniversary of the end of Hezbollah's 2006 war with Israel.

The move came 10 days after Hezbollah gave a strong showing in Lebanon's elections, garnering enough seats in parliament to block any attempt by its political foes to make it disarm its militia, which rivals the Lebanese army in size and firepower. "They are in furtherance of the goal of addressing the totality of Iran's malign activities and regionally destabilizing behavior, including that of Hezballah", the press release said.
