The U.S. Treasury building is seen in WashingtonBy Anna Yukhananov WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Friday penalized a number of Iranian and other foreign companies, banks and airlines for violating sanctions against Tehran largely tied to its nuclear program. The Treasury Department said it was targeting individuals and companies for violations including helping Iran's missile and nuclear programs, evading prior sanctions or supporting terrorism. Companies affected included Iran's Asia Bank, Caspian Air, Meraj Air and Lissom Marine Services LLC, a shipping firm. In a parallel move, the State Department imposed sanctions on four firms it said were helping Iran's nuclear program, as well as Goldentex FZE, a UAE-based firm working with Iran's shipping sector, and an Italian firm, Dettin SpA, which it said was working with Iran's petrochemical industry.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad militants parade down a street in downtown Gaza City on August 29, 2014Thousands of Islamic Jihad fighters paraded in Gaza City Friday, in a defiant show of force three days after a ceasefire ending a bloody war between Israel and Gaza militants. Fighters at the march wore military fatigues and carried assault rifles and other light weaponry, with some holding aloft different types of rockets fired at Israel during the 50-day conflict that ended on Tuesday. The spokesman for Islamic Jihad's armed wing, the Al-Quds Brigades, delivered a speech, praising backers Iran, allies Hezbollah and declaring that the group would "redouble efforts" to rearm. Israel "cannot win in Gaza," said the spokesman, known as Abu Hamza.
