The newly appointed Commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps Hossein Salami has called to expand the group’s operations against its “enemies”, local media reported.

“The Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards has crossed mountains and plains to end America’s dominance in the eastern Mediterranean, and reached the Red Sea, and turned the Islamic land to land of jihad,” he said.

“We have to expand our capabilities from the region to the world, so the enemy has no safe point around the world,” he added.

On Sunday, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei replaced IRGC commander, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari with Salami.

Earlier on 15 April, the United States included the Iranian Revolutionary Guards on its list of foreign terrorist organisations.

In response, the Iranian National Security Council included the US Central Command (CENTCOM), which responsible for the US military activities in the Middle East and Central Asia, on Iran’s list of terrorist organisations.
