Prime Minister Naftali Bennett calls on US not to delist IRGC as terror group

Bennett warned against the new JCPOA being negotiated at Vienna, arguing that with the imminent deal, tens of billions of dollars will be poured “back into this apparatus of terror” and “Much of this money will be funneled towards attacking Israel.”

IRGC directs and instructs Hezbollah in Lebanon, Islamic Jihad in Gaza, the Houthis in Yemen and militias in Iraq, and that the body is responsible for attacks against American civilians and American forces throughout the Middle East, including in the past year.

The attempt to delist the IRGC as a terrorist organization is an insult to the victims and would ignore documented reality supported by unequivocal evidence.

Iran is not only a state sponsor of terrorism, but that the IRGC actively participates in, finances, and promotes terrorism as a tool of statecraft.”
