Iran’s Parliament Approves Bill Designating US Forces in Middle East as Terrorists

The Iranian parliament on Tuesday approved a bill proscribing U.S. forces in the Middle East as terrorists, according to Iran State TV. The legislation, introduced by Defense Minister Gen. Amir Hatami, passed with an overwhelming majority of 204 out of 207 lawmakers present voting in favor. The new law calls for Iranian authorities to use “legal, political and diplomatic” measures to neutralize the United States’ recent designation of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a “foreign terrorist organization.” The IRGC, founded after the 1979 revolution, has amassed tremendous economic and political power in Iran and played a key role in developing the country’s nuclear program. The White House has implemented measures with a view to weakening the mullahs, primarily through sanctions re-imposed after President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2015 atomic deal.
