Iran warns US military bases at risk upon new sanctions
Tehran: Iran warned the US against designating its Revolutionary Guards Corp as a terrorist group and said US regional military bases would be at risk if further sanctions were passed, state media reported on Sunday.
The warning came after the White House said that President Donald Trump would announce new US responses to Iran’s missile tests, support for “terrorism” and cyber operations as part of his new Iran strategy.
“If America’s new law for sanctions is passed, this country will have to move their regional bases outside the 2,000 km range of Iran’s missiles,” Guards’ commander Mohammad Ali Jafari said, according to Press TV.
Jafari also said that additional sanctions would end the chances for future dialogue with the US, according to state media, and issued a stark warning to the US troops.
