“Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has warned the United States against blacklisting their force, saying that Tehran would treat US troops like Daesh terrorists. Chief Commander of the IRGC Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari’s warning came after the White House said on Friday that US President Donald Trump is expected to announce new measures against Iran, including the prospect of additional targeted sanctions, support for terrorism, cyber operations and the designation of the IRGC as a ‘terrorist organization.’ ‘If America’s new law for sanctions is enforced, this country will have to move its regional bases outside the 2,000 km radius of the Iranian missiles’ range,’ Press TV quoted Jafari as saying.” (10/08/17)
