Following the death of Iran's Gen. Qassem Soleimani in a U.S. drone strike in Iraq, the Iranian Parliament passed a bill that identifies the United States military and the Pentagon as terror organizations.

All 223 members of Parliament approved the bill. The Iranian Parliament also passed legislation that designated $220 million to the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp for the purpose of retaliating for Soleimani's death. The Quds Force is the body through which Iran has collaborated with armed extremist groups that operate in other nations.
