The United States has imposed fresh sanctions on Syria as part of its pressure campaign against the Arab nation under the recently-passed Caesar Act.

The US says the sanctions target the eldest son of the Syrian president and over a dozen individuals and entities. Washington says Bashar al-Assad’s son, Hafez, will not allowed to travel or maintain assets in the US. The Wednesday measures were part of a second set of sanctions under the Caesar Act. That’s a US law that took effect last month and aims to never normalize Assad’s government. The US has already put sanctions on President Assad and his wife. It has also threatened to blacklist anyone doing business with Syria. Damascus has said the US sanctions target ordinary Syrians.
