Anger in Tehran Over Kyl-Liberman

During today’s Friday Prayer, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati condemned the US Congress for designating the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.

“Shame on you, you disgraced lot. May you be damned!” said Jannati, addressing the US.

On Wednesday, the US Senate by a vote of 76-22 approved the Kyl-Liberman amendment designating the IRGS as a foreign terrorist organization. The House of Representatives had a day earlier approved a similar measure designating IRGC as terrorists.

The US government is soon expected to designate IRGC or its Quds Force as a terrorist organization.
