The US Department of State has announced sanctions on four entities that have been supporting Iran by supplying materials and technology for drones and missile production.

The targets, announced on 2 February 2024, were the Hong Kong-based companies FY International Trading (FYIT), Duling Technology HK (Duling Technology) and Advantage Trading, as well as the Iran-based subsidiary of Pishtazan Kavosh Gostar Boshra (PKGB), Narin Sepehr Mobin Istatis (NSMI).
