Canada issue new sanctions against key Syrian government officials

Canada announces new sanctions against Syria in light of its claimed April 4 chemical weapons assault, solidifying resources and prohibiting exchanges with senior pioneers of the administration of President Bashar al-Assad. 

Assad, his family, government and the Syrian military chain of importance have for quite some time been the objectives of sanctions. 

Be that as it may, the administration of  Prime Minister Justin Trudeau extended the sanctions to 27 extra high-ranking officials, said Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.

Among them were three generals -- Adib Salameh, Jawdat Salbi Mawas and Tahir Hamid Khalil -- accused of ordering attacks on civilian targets and torturing regime opponents.
"Today's new sanctions against key officials are part of our continued efforts to increase pressure on the Assad regime to stop the violence against innocent children, women and men," Freeland said.
"Last week's chemical weapons attack in southern Idlib is a war crime and is unacceptable. Canada is working with its allies to end the war in Syria and hold those responsible to account."
Since November 2015, the Trudeau government has taken in 40,000 Syrian refugees.
