Iranian General Accused of Helping to Kill Americans to Receive Sanctions Relief in Nuclear Accord

The Iranian nuclear deal will lift sanctions on Quds Force leader Gen. Soleimani

Gen. Qasem Soleimani will have his travel ban lifted and foreign assets unfrozen -- sanctions imposed by the UN -- if the deal goes as planned.

It was not immediately clear where he would be allowed to travel or which assets would be unfrozen under the deal.

The official also pointed out that Soleimani won’t receive the sanctions relief for another eight years and that all existing U.S. sanctions on Soleimani will stay in place.

His assets in the U.S. were also frozen.
