Both IRTVU and the IRGC were blacklisted by U.S. Sanctions, making it illegal for Americans, U.S. companies and foreign or non-American companies with U.S. subsidiaries to do business with them or their subsidiaries. In total, IRTVU operates 33 websites. It accused Washington of repressing freedom of expression and uniting forces with Israel and Saudi Arabia “to block pro-resistance media outlets exposing the crimes of U.S. allies in the region.”
Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), the immediate parent of Al-Alam, reported that other web domains, including Palestine-Al Youm, a Palestinian-directed broadcaster, and an Arabic-language religious and cultural channel were among those seized.
Bahrain’s LuaLua TV, run by opposition groups with offices in London and Beirut, was also taken down by the United States.
The takedowns come as world powers scramble to resurrect Tehran's tattered 2015 nuclear deal and just days after the election victory of Iran's hard-line judiciary chief, Ebrahim Raisi.

He ruled out the possibilities of meeting with President Joe Biden or negotiating Tehran’s ballistic missile program or its support for regional militias – concerns the Biden administration wants addressed in future talks.
