Iran has threatened to put the U.S. military on its terror list if Washington designates the Iranian elite Revolutionary Guards Corps or the IRGC as terrorists.

The warning posted on Twitter by a senior Iranian lawmaker Saturday--follows reports that the U.S. is expected to designate the Revolutionary Guards a foreign terrorist organization perhaps as early as Monday,- Washington has already blacklisted dozens of entities and people for affiliations with the IRGC, but not the organization as a whole.

Set up in 1979-the IRGC is Iran's most powerful security organization- with an estimated 125,000-strong military with army, navy and air units- all answering to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Critics say the new initiative against the IRGC would endanger U.S. troops in places like Iraq, where Iran-aligned Shi'ite militia are located in close proximity with U.S. soldiers.

Relations are already strained between Iran and the U.S. - after the Trump administration pulled out of a 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran last year and reimposed sanctions that have crippled Iran's economy.
