    Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards special forces participate in military exercises at an undisclosed location near the Gulf on 3 April 2006. The week-long military drills coincided with a critical phase in the dispute over Iran's alleged nuclear weapons ambitions.

    On Monday, President Donald Trump announced that the United States designated Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist group. In response to the US move, Tehran accused Washington of supporting terrorism and recognised the US Central Command (CENTCOM) as a terrorist organisation.

    The designation marks the first time the United States has formally labelled another country's military a terrorist group. Sputnik has compiled for you a gallery showing Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) during military exercises, training and parades.
