According to Barak Ravid, reporting for Axios, three Israeli officials and two American sources have told him that the Biden administration is considering removing Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from the terror blacklist if Iran issues a public commitment to de-escalate its activities in the region.
Reuters cited a source that said Washington is not sure what would be the commitment it wants Tehran to make in exchange for being de-listed.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) was placed by the Trump administration on the list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO) of the State Department’s Bureau of Counterterrorism on April 15, 2019.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted in response that Trump’s terrorist designation for the Iranian government’s organization fulfilled “another important request of mine.” The designation was criticized by Turkey, Iraq, and China, as well as Iran’s parliament, whose members wore IRGC uniforms in protest. In May 2019, the Iranian government declared the United States Central Command, whose area of responsibility includes the Middle East, a terrorist organization.
On Sunday this week, Iran attacked the Kurdish city of Erbil with a dozen ballistic missiles that targeted the United States consulate there. Iranian state media said Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps carried out the attack.
According to Ravid, the Biden administration is considering making a public announcement after de-listing the IRCG, saying the US reserves the right to redesignate it should Iran not honor its pledge to de-escalate its violence in the region.
It’s the honor system, see?
