Iran's parliament passed a bill on Tuesday designating all US forces "terrorists" after the killing of Iranian commander Qassem Suleimani in a US strike last week.

Suleimani, who was the head of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards' Quds Force, was killed in a drone strike outside Baghdad International Airport on Friday, ratcheting up tension between Washington and Tehran.

Under the Iranian bill, all US forces and employees of the Pentagon and affiliated organisations, agents and commanders and those who ordered the killing of Suleimani are designated as "terrorists".

"Any aid to these forces, including military, intelligence, financial, technical, service or logistical, will be considered as co-operation in a terrorist act," Iran's parliament said.

Politicians also voted to allocate €200 million (Dh821.5m) to the Quds Force, the foreign operations arm of the IRGC.

The bill was an amended version of a law adopted in April last year that declared the US a "state sponsor of terrorism" and its forces in the region "terror groups". It came after the US designated the IRGC "terrorist organisation".
