President Trump signed off on a new round of sanctions on Iran Monday, targeting Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and eight senior military commanders.

The sanctions are in response to recent attacks on tankers and a U.S. drone, and come after the President backed off of a planned military strike Friday.

Reza Akbari is an Iran researcher with The Institute for War and Peace Reporting. He tells KCBS Radio anchor Rebecca Corral the change in strategy is counter-productive.
