Iran's parliament speaker Ali Larijani said the bill was the country's "first action... to confront terrorist and adventurist actions by the United States in the region".

On July 18, the U.S. Administration announced putting on a blacklist 18 organizations and persons, supporting the Iranian ballistic missile program, Iran's military purchases and IRGC.
Chants of "Death to America" broke out as the bill was passed, according to the country's state broadcaster IRIB.
The bill would allocate about $260 million each to Iran's ballistic-missile program and the Quds Force, the external branch of the IRGC that is said to be active in Syria and Iraq.
Iran denies violating the United Nations resolution which endorsed the Tehran's 2015 nuclear deal, preventing them from conducting activities related to ballistic missiles created to deliver nuclear weapons.

The Iranian plan would require Iran's government and armed forces to draw up a strategy to counter U.S. violations of human rights around the world, and to support Iranian bodies and individuals affected by American sanctions.
The bill still needs to pass a second vote before it is delivered to a clerical body for review and passage into law.
