US labels Iran’s forces as Terrorists
For the first time, the Trump administration has labelled Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a foreign terrorist organization. Further, the move seems to increase pressure on Iran’s regime and to bring a new level of tension between the two countries, as Iran’s leaders have said they will retaliate in kind. US sanctions have targeted IRGC and affiliated entities for alleged proliferation activities, support for terrorism and human rights abuses.
