According to a Treasury statement, the airline provides financial, material and technological support specifically to the Guard’s Quds Force, the same organization that days before the Treasury announcement had been implicated in a plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States with the assistance of Mexican drug cartel Los Zetas.
