Iran participates in Qatar defense show
Iran's IRGC participates in a Qatar defense show amid Gulf and "Israel" fears of Washington removing the military corps from its terrorist list over restoring the 2015 JCPOA.
Iran participated in Qatar's DIMDEX's defense show, Reuters reported. In the show, Iran's defense ministry commander promoted their missiles and air defense systems destined for export.
This comes at a time when some Gulf states and the Israeli occupation are worried about a possible removal of the IRGC from the US terrorist list as part of efforts to revive the 2015 nuclear deal.
Media reports revealed that US President Joe Biden's administration was discussing a plan to remove the IRGC from their list of terrorist organizations.

Citing sources involved in these discussions, WSJ wrote that Washington may propose removing the IRGC from their terrorism list if Iran commits to 'ceasing its regional aggression' and stops 'targeting Americans.' If Tehran refuses to comply with the terms of the agreement, according to the media, the US will place Iran on their list again.
According to Reuters, "a booth adjacent to the IRGC one, U.S. firm General Atomics showcased its MQ-9B predator drone, which is engineered to conduct anti-surface warfare, including maritime surveillance and precision-guided munitions."
"The U.S. State Department has authorized the company to sell 18 of the unmanned aircraft to the United Arab Emirates in a deal worth as much as $2.9 billion," the agency noted.
