How Iran turned Syria into a proxy battleground
One of the core policies of the Iranian regime is turning other countries, more specifically Arab nations, into proxy battlegrounds in order to advance its political interests and hegemonic ambitions in the region.
Other countries should learn an important lesson from how Iran turned Syria into a proxy battleground. It took many years of planning for the Iranian regime to exert significant influence in Syria and turn the Arab nation into a warzone.
The Iranian regime exploited the conflict financially by making the target country such as Damascus more economically dependent on it.
