Iran's parliament has voted to funnel more funds to the nation's ballistic missile program.
It would also allocate over $260 million each to Iran's ballistic missile program and the Quds Force - the external arm of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), which has sent military advisers to Iraq and Syria to fight terrorists.
The legislative move by Iran follows the U.S. President Donald Trump's signing of a sanctions bill on Russia, Iran and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on August 2.
In a session Sunday, 240 lawmakers voted for the bill, with only one abstention, to confront "America's terrorist and adventurous actions" in the region.
According to the bill, Iran's combined government and military apparatus is tasked with devising a comprehensive strategic plan to counter the "US threats" within a period of six months following ratification of the bill. The move follows a spike in tensions between Tehran and Washington since US President Donald Trump took office in January with a vow to get tough on the Islamic republic.
Deputy foreign minister Abbas Araqchi told members of parliament that the government supported the new bill.

Washington's new sanctions violate a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran both "in letter and spirit".
The bill is "very smart particularly because it doesn't violate the nuclear deal and doesn't allow the other side to make excuses", he added.
Iran denies developing ballistic missiles created to carry nuclear weapons in violation of the agreement and has accused the USA of breaking its word by imposing fresh sanctions.
A second vote will now take place on the bill before it is submitted to a clerical body for final approval.
Mr Trump has recently backed away from his key campaign promise to withdraw from the nuclear agreement.
