Iranian lawmakers blacklist Pentagon

by Akeem Alao

President Hassan Rouhani has included Pentagon and all its subsidiaries in the amended law that expands Iran’s designation of American terrorist organizations.

Iran’s parliament passed the initial version of the law back in April, which designated the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) a terrorist organization after the US blacklisted the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

Today, the Iranian lawmakers unanimously adopted the motion seeking the expansion of the blacklist to include the Pentagon.

The new version blacklists all staff members of the Pentagon and subsidiary companies and institutions, in addition to those who commanded and perpetrated General Soleimani’s assassination.

The reaction of the Iranian parliament was in response to US blacklisting of IRGC.
