Why Iran is Helping Syria
All living human beings will find comfort in the arms of their friends during any moment of difficulty. During the entire warring period in Syria, Iran has remained steadfast and committed to be a supportive and dependable Syrian ally. Iran in Syria has been of great importance and value to Syria. In as much as the two countries may not have many common interests in pursuance, it should be noted that Iran in Syria is purely a partnership between two governments that are seeking to ensure stability in the affected country. There is no question on the nobility and boldness shown by Iran in choosing to help Syria in these trying moments.
Being a Syrian ally, Iran has continued to offer necessary military aid that has gone on for years now. Iran has had these military supplies done by air, primarily. 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. These security and military support offered to the Syrians has made them a little bit stronger. Iran has also shown the willingness to use its military outside its borders to ensure reigning of peace in other countries. It has also come out stronger in its training expeditionary missions. This move by Iran has made it possible for the current head of state not to be overthrown. This has been observed as a noble move that is fully behind 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. Pro-government militias in Syria have received extensive support from Iran. Iran being Syria ally has been accepted by these militias. This move has eliminated hurdles for Iranian operation within Syrian borders. While on the same issue, Iran has continuously fought both the moderate and extremist factions that are unwanted in Syria. Suppressing such factions is actually aimed at ensuring Syria regains its stability as soon as possible. This is not dependent on the person that takes over the government.
Iran is aiming at building a corridor from Iran to Lebanon. This land corridor is intended to come through Iraq and Syria. The corridor provides a connection to the Mediterranean. It will allow for the easy and convenient movement of Iranian-allied soldiers, Iranian soldiers and weapons. This will grow both Syria’s ally, Iran, Iran and Syria itself. Iran will find it even more advantageous since it will find an avenue of growing her influence through this.
