The German company Krempel GmbH (Krempel Group) says that it halted business relations with two Iranian buyers, Reza Moghaddam Panah and Mahmood Hasan Darvish Commerce, but will continue to trade with Iran. In February, electronic press boards produced by Krempel were found in the remains of Iranian-made rockets used in Syria. The press boards (Presss pan PSP 3040) were sold to Iranian entities, used in rocket production, and subsequently used by Syrian government forces in a chemical attack that killed 21 people.
