Iran-backed Hezbollah’s Role in the Syrian War

Iran Focus

London, 20 Oct - Iran-backed Hezbollah gained approval with the non-Shiite population of Lebanon through confrontation with Israel, but Hezbollah has been involved in the Syrian war since it began. Its participation has affected Lebanese sympathies.

Several Lebanese politicians and other famous people have condemned Hezbollah for its fight against the Syrian people. However, if Assad fails in Syria, Hezbollah will be cut off from Iran’s weapon supplies.

Hezbollah has established itself in Lebanon’s domestic and foreign policy. Hezbollah, along with the Iranian forces, is also involved in the development and training of militarized groups, consisting mostly of Shiites and Alawites. Assad’s government uses them mainly for security and patrolling.

The United States works on strategy to remove Iran from Syria

London, 18 Oct - Iran’s interference in the civil war in Syria has been bloody. It has propped up Bashar al Assad and it has prolonged the war that would have ended years ago had it not got involved.

The United States has been urging Iran, including its numerous proxies and militias, to leave Syria. And it is true that Iran is standing in the way of Syria from being able to properly start the process of reconstruction.

It is thought that the Trump administration is actively working towards pushing Iran and its proxies out of Syria. Several people with insider information told NBC News that a new strategy revolving around diplomatic and political moves would be put into place with the employment of economic pressure that would leave Iran with no choice.

attack on Syria “reckless”

London, 2 Oct - The US has called an Iranian missile attack on supposed militant targets in eastern Syria “reckless, unsafe and escalatory”.

In a statement on Monday, Pentagon spokesperson Commander Sean Robertson said that Iran took no measures to notify other military powers in the country of the predawn missile strike, something that “professional” military forces, like the US-led coalition, would have done to ensure maximum safety.

U.S. to increase pressure on Syria to kick Iran out

Iran Focus

London, 17 Oct - The Donald Trump administration is reportedly planning to increase economic pressure on Syria in order to push Iranian troops out of the war-torn country.

This new plan, which is part of an overall push by the US government to contain Iran's malign behaviour in the Middle East, does not endorse military force against Iran or any of its proxy forces in Syria.

Instead, it cleverly uses targeted sanctions and the threat of withholding reconstruction aid in order to increase pressure on Syria to kick the Iranian forces out.

London, 19 Sep - Cargo jets that are suspected to have transported weapons from Iran to Syria have made nearly 200 such flights in the past 12 months, according to flight tracking data.

Israel’s intelligence agencies have previously cited that these flights conducted or arranged by the Iranian and Syrian militaries are key to the transport of weapons from Iran to Syrian dictator Bashar Assad and the Lebanese Hezbollah.

Israel has reportedly been the force behind the airstrikes that have hit several airports and warehouses in Syria, shortly after the cargo planes have landed, including on Saturday, when the cargo was being taken off of an Iranian Boeing 747 that had flown from Tehran to Damascus.
