The Iranian parliament has declared the US Central Military Command a “terrorist organization” in a mirror response to Washington’s blacklisting of Tehran’s Revolutionary Guard.
All organizations, institutions and forces under CENTCOM command were acknowledged to be “terrorists” by the overwhelming majority of the Iranian MP’s, who approved the contents of the bill, which also condemns the US move to blacklist the IRGC.
Anyone offering military, intelligence, financial, or any other support to CENTCOM and its affiliate forces will be considered supporters of worldwide terrorism.
The 13-article legislation also mandates the general staff to begin gathering intelligence about CENTCOM activities so that the material can be used in Iranian courts to prosecute specific individuals.
The bill, however, does not mention the exact mechanisms through which Americans are expected to be brought to justice under Iranian laws.
The US regime has for the first time ever designated an official foreign military institution as a terrorist organization.
The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) was formed shortly after the Islamic Revolution back in 1979.
So, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has been the elite force of the Islamic Republic under the Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini for the last 40 years, after overthrowing the US-backed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.
