The United States takes possession of a Boeing 747 aircraft that Iran illegally sold to a Venezuelan company

Washington USA has seized a Boeing 747 cargo plane that officials said had been sold by a sanctioned Iranian airline to a Venezuelan state-owned company in violation of U.S. export control laws.

He Justice Department reported on Monday that the American-made plane arrived at Florida and it will be discarded.

The plane had previously been transferred from Mahan Air — an Iranian airline that officials say supports the Revolutionary Guard’s Quds Force. Iran — to Emtrasur, a Venezuelan cargo airline and subsidiary of a state company that had previously been sanctioned by the United States.

According to officials, the sale, carried out without authorization from the US government, violated export control laws and also improperly benefited the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

Mahan Air has been under restrictions on its business by the US government for years.
