The Iranian regime is facing one of the biggest threats to its survival so far. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was a lifeline for the regime at a time when it was suffering from major economic issues. The 2015 nuclear deal provided it with a huge sum of cash, the total of which is in dispute, and a huge amount of assets were freed up. However, last year, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that he would be exiting the deal and that tough economic sanctions would be re-imposed. They are now in place, and further sanctions are continuing to be issued.
