Military Activities

Iran, and particularly the Quds Force, a unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, has built active relationships with terrorist groups from Lebanon to Palestine to Iraq. These ties, though not new, have increased in recent years as Iran has attempted to influence the course of recent Middle Eastern conflicts through arms, funding, training, and other assets provided to partners such as Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Special Groups in Iraq.

This section outlines the contours of the Iran-Hezbollah and the Iran-Hamas relationships as well as Iranian military activities in Iraq since 2003.
