In May, a bill introduced by the U.S. Senate, in case it is passed by the Congress and implemented by the the State Department, would label the IRGC as a terrorist group and trigger sanctions on it.

The chief of staff of Iran's armed forces, Major General Mohammad Bagheri, said that considering the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist group and imposing sanctions on the Islamic Republic would pose "major risks" to the U.S. bases and troops in the region, IRNA news agency reported.

Bagheri noted that the Iranian people have stood strong in defending the country and do not let others interfere in their internal affairs.
