In a tit for tat move, the Islamic Republic's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) on Monday, April 8, designated the United States Central Command (CENTCOM) in the Middle-East and all its affiliates as a terrorist entity.

The decision was officially declared minutes after U.S. President Donald Trump designated the Iranian Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a foreign terrorist organization.

In a statement published on Monday, SNSC condemned President Trump's move as “an illegal and dangerous action” that poses a “major threat to the regional and international peace and security and grossly violates the UN Charter, as well as the rules of international law."

"The Islamic Republic of Iran regards this baseless move as a major threat to regional and international peace and security and a blatant violation of the compelling rules of international law and the United Nations Charter," SNSC reiterated.

On Tuesday April 9, President Hassan Rouhani in a speech attacked Washington's decision saying it was an act of grudge and enmity resulting from "defeats" the U.S. has experienced.
