The United Kingdom is reportedly expected to officially designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist organization, following several alleged plots to kidnap or murder UK citizens.
The case against the IRGC in the UK has been in the works since last year, which saw 10 attempts to target people on British soil, the Telegraph reports.
Adding the group to the country’s terror list will be officially announced within weeks, the report claims, citing political and security sources.
If the report is true, the IRGC would effectively be banned in the UK, meaning that attending the group’s meetings or carrying its flag and logo in public would be a criminal offense. The UK has reportedly seen a surge of support for the IRGC in recent years.
