The deputy IRGC chief for parliamentary affairs said that Saudi leaders put some of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) commanders in their terrorist list to distract the world from journalist Jamal Khashoggi's murder case.

Iran Press/Iran News: Saudi Arabia is stuck in a quagmire and it will do anything to get out of it, Mohammad Jowkar, the deputy IRGC chief for parliamentary affairs told Mehr News Agency on Wednesday.

The killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is only one of the Saudi crimes and its' supporters, while they are killing innocent people every day in Yemen, Syria and Bahrain, the deputy IRGC chief for parliamentary affairs highlighted.

Saudi Arabia and Bahrain added Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) to their terrorism lists on Tuesday claiming that the body is providing financial and material support to what they describe as Iran’s terrorist activities.

Among the names added to the list is Maj. Gen. Ghasem Soleimani, the commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force.

The news comes after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan demanded Saudi officials reveal the whereabouts of Khashoggi’s remains, after the Saudi government admitted Khashoggi had been murdered, albeit in a “fist fight” with officials inside the consulate in Istanbul.
