Iran: Revolutionary Guard Vow to Designate US Army as Equivalent to ISIS

Share

Revolutionary Guard chief Mohammad Ali Jafari said that if these reports of the United States' "stupidity" are true, it will equate USA troops, especially in the Middle East, to IS terrorists.

Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps commander, Major General Mohammad Ali Jaafari on Sunday warned the united states to relocate its regional bases out of the reach of Iran's missiles in case Washington takes new measures against Tehran.

According to the state broadcaster IRIB, lawmakers overwhelmingly approved the outlines of the bill to "counter America's terrorist and adventurist actions" as some chanted "Death to America".

Such hostile USA action would be considered a breach of the nuclear deal that Iran signed with world powers in 2015, he said, adding that Iran would view it as an opportunity to develop its "defence and missile programmes in the region".

It means the Germans end their qualifying campaign with a ideal record of 10 wins, scoring 43 and conceding just four. With Mustafi down, Azerbaijan continued their attack which led to them scoring a goal courtesy of Ramil Sheydaev.

Such a move would in effect kick the ball to Congress which would then have to decide whether to impose new economic sanctions - a move Tehran warns would be viewed as a hostile act with all consequences that would follow.

"The Islamic Republic intends to resolve the regional issues at a place other than the negotiating table".

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has slammed US President Donald Trump for his recent threats to "decertify" the Iranian nuclear deal.

Trump has railed against the multi-party deal, achieved by his predecessor Barack Obama, and appears ready to pull out of it.

Tehran has warned it may begin to equate U.S. forces to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) if a report is true that Washington will include the elite wing of the Iranian Army in the list of terrorist organizations.

The EU has also voiced concerns over removing the nuclear agreement, which "serves the interests of all parties", according to EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.

"The Americans should know that the Islamic Republic of Iran will use the opportunity provided by the Trump administration's stupid behavior towards the nuclear deal to make a leap in its conventional defense, missile and regional programs", he added.

The Qods Force and individuals and entities associated with IRGC are on the list, but the organization as a whole is not.

Jafari also warned that if the United States declared the Guard a terrorist group, Iran would give the U.S. army the same label.
