Jun 21, 2024

New York [US], June 21: Canada on Wednesday classified Iran's powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization.
"This action sends a strong message that Canada will use all of the tools at its disposal to combat the terrorist entity of the IRGC," Canadian Public Safety Minister Dominic LeBlanc told reporters.
"Our government will ensure that there is no immunity for Iran's unlawful actions and its support of terrorism," he continued.
The move means, among other things, that it is now a criminal offence for anyone in Canada to provide financial or material support to the IRGC and that the group's assets in the country are required to be frozen.
Israel's Foreign Minister Israel Katz welcomed the move.
