Decoding Iran’s ‘Axis of Resistance’: Examining regional power and anti-Israel alliance



Understanding Iran’s ‘Axis of Resistance’: Regional influence and anti-Israel coalition

In a dramatic turn of events, Iran launched dozens of attack drones towards Israel on Saturday, in retaliation for an airstrike on its embassy compound in Damascus. This move has raised concerns about a potential escalation of conflict in the Middle East, as Iran backs various groups that have been involved in attacking Israel and U.S. interests.

The “Axis of Resistance” against Israel and U.S. influence in the region includes groups like Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Houthi movement in Yemen, and Shi’ite armed groups in Iraq and Syria. Hezbollah, established by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards in 1982, has been a powerful force in Lebanon and a key player in the ongoing conflict with Israel.

The Houthi movement in Yemen, which has friendly ties to Iran, entered the conflict by firing drones and missiles towards Israel, prompting air strikes from the United States and Britain. The groups in Iraq, under the umbrella of Islamic Resistance, stepped up attacks on U.S. forces in response to Israeli actions in Gaza.

Syria, long-time allies with Iran, has not directly participated in the conflict but has been a battleground for escalation between Iran-backed militias and Israeli forces. The involvement of these groups has led to disruptions in international commerce and increased tensions in the region.

Efforts are being made to prevent the violence from escalating further, with a U.S. envoy actively engaged in diplomatic initiatives. The situation remains fluid as the Axis of Resistance continues to challenge Israel and U.S. influence in the Middle East.
