Previously, Iran’s elite force, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, vowed to teach the US “new lessons” if sanctioned.

The US Treasury Department has announced the expansion of sanctions on Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, which were imposed on October 13 over IRGC allegedly “supporting terrorism,” a claim strongly denied by Tehran.

Iran has pledged to “strongly respond to any action against its military forces,” while the Revolutionary Guards commander, Mohammad Ali Jafar, vowed to equate US forces with Daesh terrorist group.
