Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC)

a branch of Iran’s military generally seen as the country’s most elite and hard-line force. Created in 1979, the IRGC was intended to help the leaders of the new Islamic Republic avoid coups and other threats. Since then, though continuing in this role, the conservative IRGC has become an increasingly powerful force both within Iran and beyond. It is active in Iran’s politics and economy and conducts military activities to advance Iran’s agenda. In 2019, the United States designated the IRGC a terrorist organization.
