Canada bans entry to over 10K Iranian IRGC members

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Friday that the country will ban more than 10,000 members of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) from ever entering the country.

"Today, we’re using the most powerful tools at our disposal to crack down on Iran's brutal regime. We'll be pursuing a listing of IRGC leadership under our Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, making over 10,000 senior IRGC members inadmissible to Canada," Trudeau stated and added Ottawa will also expand economic sanctions against Iran in response to Tehran's reaction to protests for women's rights following the death of Mahsa Amini.

Earlier, the United States and the European Union announced plans to impose new sanctions against Iran over its violent suppression of protests.
