Iran may include US military on blacklist

Iran may put the US military on its "terrorist list" if Washington classifies Iran's Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist, Reuters quoted a senior Iranian lawmaker as saying on Saturday.

"The United States is expected to include the Revolutionary Guards in the terrorist lists," the Iranian official said in response to reports quoted by the Wall Street Journal, which in turn quoted US officials as saying.

This is the first time that Washington formally describes another country's army as a "terrorist group".

"If the Revolutionary Guards are placed on the list of American terrorist groups, we will put the army of that country on the black list of terrorism next to Daesh," said Hashmatullah Fallah Bishah, head of Iran's National Security Committee on Twitter.
