  • Revolutionary Guard Corps: Iran hits back at US terrorist claim

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani waves to journalists next to a portrait of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (R) at the end of a press conference in Tehran on June 13, 2015.

On the same day as Rouhani's speech, Iranian lawmakers met for a parliamentary session where they chanted "Death to America!" It provides funding, equipment, training, and logistical support to terrorist proxy groups, including most notably Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria.

He said that Washington was "grudgingly" against the IRGC, which "sacrificed its life to protect our people and our revolution". The move to target the IGRC was already underway in other branches of the USA government.

The IRGC's Chief Commander Mohammad Ali Jafari said Tuesday that his forces will grow stronger in its defensive and offensive power in the next year despite U.S.

President Trump's latest move adds even more economic pressure on the Iranian regime and its principal arm for the spread of terror in the name of jihad.

Rouhani, who headed Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) in the 1990s and early 2000s, praised the IRGC, saying they have been sacrificing their lives to protect Iran.

Mr Trump's statement on Monday said: "This unprecedented step, led by the Department of State, recognises the reality that Iran is not only a state sponsor of terrorism, but that the IRGC actively participates in, finances, and promotes terrorism as a tool of statecraft".

Speaking at his weekly news conference Tuesday, Abdul-Mahdi said that Iraq as Iran's neighbor to the west can not afford to be the site of conflict between rival powers.

Abdul Mahdi, speaking to reporters, said Baghdad had tried to head off Trump's decision and added that Iraq would do all it could to bring calm to the region since it maintained good relations with both Tehran and Washington.

However, the decision is likely to complicate USA activities in countries such as Iraq and Lebanon, whose governments are United States partners but where Shia political parties and militias have strong links to Iran. "This accounts for 17 percent of all deaths of United States personnel in Iraq from 2003 and 2011". He said Japan will say what it must to the country and continue working to solve problems through discussion and dialogue.

Turkey, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally of the United States, was also critical.

The US's tough stance on Iran can not work in isolation; it must be followed by concerted global efforts to rein in terror where it threatens to destabilise an entire region. The move, suggested Iranian state TV, had as much to do with usa dislike of Tehran's influence in the region as it did with its success in "fighting Islamic State".

Israel conducted airstrikes on Syrian soil on multiple occasions, claiming to have hit Iranian military targets.

Conservative Speaker of Parliament, top 2015 nuclear-deal negotiator, and former IRGC member Ali Larijani told those assembled in the Iranian parliament that "the government of the U.S. should be held accountable" for being the "the founder and supporter of terrorist groups", rather than the Guard.

Iran has so far continued to comply with the nuclear deal, but Tehran's clerical rulers have threatened to withdraw from it and to resume the suspended nuclear work if other signatories of the pact fail to protect Iran's interests.

Hook also said that Iran was responsible for the deaths of at least 608 U.S. service members in the aftermath of the United States invasion of Iraq.
