BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 P.M.) – Residents of Iran’s capital Tehran reacted to imminent US sanctions against the country on Monday.

“I do not think highly of Trump claiming these sanctions affect the government. These sanctions are directly applied to the people,” Saeed Bagheri said of the sanctions, which are reportedly due to come into force on Tuesday.

For another resident, Mohammad, the “crippling sanctions” aren’t something new for Iran; according to him the US “objective” in the past was “regime change” but it “did not come to pass.”

“I believe the impact of sanctions on lives has been very obvious, especially in the health sector, for patients, as well as the jobs that are there for students,” said Mariam Kadkhodaei.

According to Mahdi Abadan, Iran should return towards a localised economic model and resist through self-sufficiency.

In May 2018, US President Donald Trump announced the US withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal (JCPOA) and the re-imposition of sanctions, claiming this deal is “defective.”
