Washington has slapped sanctions on a number of Lebanese firms for allegedly helping the Syrian regime develop chemical weapons through the procurements of electronic parts and other materials.The Lebanese companies named Wednesday were part of a broader list issued by the U.S. Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control that included firms in Syria, Russia and Ukraine. The move, which comes as part of a coordinated action with France, targets the procurement network for Syria's Scientific Studies and Research Center, which the U.S. Treasury Department said is the agency responsible for developing chemical weapons.This is not the first time the U.S. Treasury has accused Lebanese companies of involvement in helping the Syrian regime develop chemical weapons.
