Iranian regime is turning other countries into proxy battlegrounds
Iranian regime appears to have mastered asymmetrical warfare, which is a major source of instability in the Middle East.
It took many years of planning for the Iranian regime to exert significant influence in Syria and turn the Arab nation into a warzone.
Then Iranian regime moved to the next level, with the IRGC dispatching low-level soldiers as well as senior military generals to Syria. In addition, Iran used its proxies, including Hezbollah and Shiite militias from across the region, while also recruiting fighters from countries such as Afghanistan to fight alongside Assad’s forces.
Strategically and geopolitically speaking, the Iranian regime strengthened its coalition of Shiite forces and militias, some of which invaded Syria from Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Lebanon.
