Iran's Revolutionary Guards chief warns Trump against imposing new sanctions

The IRGC Commander's remarks came after the Financial Times reported that Trump is expected to designate IRGC as a terrorist organization next week as part of a new hardline strategy against the Islamic Republic.

The sanctions package also targeted Iran for alleged human rights abuses, terrorism sponsorship and arms shipments and added to the sanctions the United States had already imposed on the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps and its unit responsible for foreign operations, the Qods Force.

US President Donald Trump also accused Iran of supporting terrorism and vowed to "put an end to Iran's continued aggression and nuclear ambitions".

The head of the elite military unit also made a veiled threat to attack United States military bases in the region.

He said such moves by the USA will eliminate "any chance for engagement forever".

Jafari's warning came two days after White House Press Secretary Huckabee Sanders said Trump will announce new U.S. responses to Iran's missile tests, alleged support for terrorism and cyber operations as part of his new broader Iran strategy.
