Syria’s ally, Iran, has continuously provided essential military support over the years. The use of air in delivering these essential has been popular among the Iranians. Iran has also chosen to provide further security and intelligence information to Syria. It is clear that they do offer military weapons and other primary military necessities to the Syrians too. Financial support is also granted to a certain level. Security and military aid from the Iranians has actually spurred growth in the steadiness of the Syrian government in its fight against the opposition. Iran has volunteered in allowing its own military to go out of its borders to ensure calm and peace among countries that have been affected by war. For this reason, Iran has shown growth in its expeditionary missions. This move has actually facilitated the current Syrian head of state to remain in power. This move has been noted as a move of honor that aims at maintain the rights of the people of Syria. Iran has been able to further its economic, political and social agenda through this support.
The move to support a local regime by an outsider is usually one that demands lots of boldness. Iran has actually shown support for pro-government militias in Syria. These militias have actually welcomed the friendship between Syria and Iran. This kind of support has allowed Iran to operate with lots of ease within Syrian borders. While on the same issue, Iran has continuously fought both the moderate and extremist factions that are unwanted in Syria. Conquering these factions actually hastens the process of regaining stability. Whoever takes control of the government does not necessarily matter.
The goal of Iran is to build a corridor that goes from Iran to Lebanon. Iraq and Syria will have to allow the corridor to go through them. This corridor is a direct link to the Mediterranean. Weapons, Iranian soldiers and Iranian backed soldiers will be facilitated and allowed to move within the corridor with lots of ease. This will grow both Syria’s ally, Iran, Iran and Syria itself. This will be beneficial since it will actually lead to Iran gaining more muscles of authority within this particular region.
