The Justice Department said in a press release it has seized thirty-three websites used by the Iranian Islamic Radio and Television Union, and three websites operated by Kataib Hezbollah.
Tuesday’s seizures were aimed at those Web domains owned by a US company. The outlets’ webpages operating on non-American domains are still functioning.
The move by the Justice Department came during delicate negotiations between Iran and the United States to revive a 2015 nuclear deal, and a day after Iran’s new president-elect, Ebrahim Raisi, took a hard line toward the United States, ruling out the possibility of meeting with President Biden and declaring he would not negotiate over his country’s ballistic missile program.
