The move targets the Iran-based Martyrs Foundation, an organization the Treasury said channels financial support from Iran to Hizballah and Hamas, as well as to its U.S. branch, called the Goodwill Charitable Organization, and two individuals who worked for it.

Any assets the group may have in the United States will be frozen and U.S. citizens are prohibited from doing business with them.
