Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Urged to be Banned as Terrorist Organisation After Attack on Israel, Rishi Sunak Warned


Mounting Calls for Action

Pressure is mounting on UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization following a significant attack on Israel. Figures from various political backgrounds are calling for this move in response to Tehran’s assault over the weekend, which involved 300 missiles and drones.

Backing from Political Figures

Former Home Secretary Suella Braverman, ex-Tory leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith, and the Labour Party have all urged Prime Minister Sunak to follow America’s lead in classifying the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist group. The organization is responsible for Iran’s ballistic missiles and has approximately 125,000 military personnel.

International Concerns

Israel has vowed to retaliate against Iran, with threats of launching its own attack. Amidst escalating tensions, calls for restraint from all sides have been echoed by Sunak, emphasizing the need to prevent further escalation in the Middle East conflict.

Fears of Escalation

Concerns of a potential World War Three scenario have emerged, as Iran warns of a tenfold response to any Israeli counterattack. With the involvement of Hezbollah and the potential overwhelm of Israel’s defense systems, the situation remains volatile.

Global Pleas for Calm

As Israel contemplates its response, pleas for restraint from Western nations, including the UK and the US, are being made to avoid further entanglement in a broader conflict. President Joe Biden has urged Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to exercise caution, while former President Donald Trump has vowed to retaliate against Iran.
