Tehran: U.S. angry with IRGC for being among pillars of Iran’s power

The United States is angry at the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) because it is a pillar of Iran’s national power, has humiliated Israel and disrupted Washington’s domineering strategies in the region, the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

“Hostile measures by the US regime against Iranians are countless. Different and diverse aspects of the US administrations’ crimes against the Iranian nation expose fake and political human rights gestures of US officials and their instrumental use of human rights,” Nasser Kanaani added in a post on his Twitter account on Wednesday, according to Tasnim News Agency.

“Devising coup d’état, providing support to the eight-year (1980-88) imposed war, intentional downing of the passenger plane, waging hybrid warfare, sponsoring Mujahedin-e Khalq (MKO) terrorists and imposing bans and maximum pressure against Iranians are only examples of the US regime’s countless crimes against the Iranian nation,” he noted.

“The reason behind the US anger with the IRGC and spread of lies and baseless allegations against it is clear; IRGC is a pillar of Iranian national power, has humiliated the apartheid Zionist regime and disrupted US domineering strategies in the region,” Kanaani stated.
