In retaliation to blacklisting the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Iranian Parliament on Tuesday voted to put the US Central Command [CENTCOM] in West Asia on the list of terrorist groups.

According to the parliamentary ratification, the forces and organizations under the authority of the CENTCOM are also considered terrorist.

Accordingly, any aid to these forces is also considered cooperation with terrorism.

The bill was approved with 173 votes in favor, four against, and 11 abstentions.

The branding of CENTCOM as a terrorist organization came after the United States designated the IRGC as a foreign terrorist organization on April 8.

On the same day that the US took such a move against the IRGC, Iran’s Supreme National Security Council [SNSC] declared CENTCOM as terrorist and the US government as sponsor of terrorism.
