U.S. Names Iran's Revolutionary Guards Terrorist Group

According to Reuters, U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday branded Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization.

It is an unprecedented step that raises the specter of retaliation from Tehran in an increasingly tense Middle East.

It is the first time the United States has formally labeled another country’s military a terrorist group.
