News show sanctions haven't affected Iran coronavirus crisis

April 2020—The Iranian regime claims that international sanctions have hampered its ability to import medicine to fight the coronavirus crisis in Iran.

A glance at its state-run news agencies shows that the regime has imported tons of medicine and medical equipment just within 2 months. However, the regime hoards many medicines & medical equipment imports and reports indicate that it sells the humanitarian aid it receives at several times the cost.

It is very clear that the regime’s goal from easing the sanctions is nothing but to find more cash for funding terrorism and expanding the life of its dictatorship.

However, while the Iranian Resistance calls for sending international aid to the Iranian people, it stresses that the aid must be given to hospitals directly, without any interference of the regime.
