Iranian parliament ratifies bill designating CENTCOM as terrorists
The Iranian parliament ratified a bill which designates the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) as a terrorist organisation in retaliation to the United States placing Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) under the same designation last week.
According to the Iranian Mehr news agency, 204 out of the 256 Iranian parliament members present voted in favor of the bill.
The bill also considers any aid — financial, technological and information — provided to CENTCOM a terrorist measure.
This comes after a notice in the U.S. Federal Register confirmed that the U.S. formally designated Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a foreign terrorist organisation. On 8 April, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States was including Iran's IRGC on its terror list.
