(Worthy News) - The Trump administration is weighing whether to label the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist group, part of an effort to use every possible tool in the box to pressure Tehran, CNN reported on Monday.

Senior current and former officials familiar with the matter told the news network the White House is considering the move, and that the debate has senior Cabinet officials squaring off on both sides.

The designation decision, formally under the State Department's purview, is taking on heightened importance as part of the White House's increasingly aggressive strategy towards Iran. Officials have been debating it for several months and have yet to reach a consensus, the report said. [ Source: Arutz Sheva (Read More...) ]
