About our Israel/Iran news

Latest news on the Iran–Israel proxy conflict, including updates on covert operations, cyberattacks, regional developments, and the roles of Hezbollah, Hamas, Syria and other key players.

The Iran–Israel proxy conflict, also known as the Iran–Israel proxy war or Iran–Israel Cold War, is an ongoing conflict between Iran and Israel that has spanned decades. It involves Iran's support for groups like Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Palestinian territories, and Israel's efforts to counter Iran's influence and nuclear ambitions in the region. The conflict has escalated in recent years with tit-for-tat attacks, assassinations, and cyberwarfare.

Recent developments in the proxy conflict include Israel's intensifying air campaign against Iranian targets in Syria, Iran's attempts to establish a permanent military presence near Israel's borders, and continued skirmishes between Israel and Iranian proxies like Hezbollah. Attacks on ships in the Persian Gulf region have also been attributed to the standoff between the two adversaries. The conflict has drawn in regional players like Saudi Arabia and the UAE who align with Israel in opposing Iran's influence.

Amidst the shadow war, high-profile incidents have captured global attention, such as Israel's alleged assassination of Iran's top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh in 2020 and the Mossad's bold heist of Iran's nuclear archives in 2018. Cyber attacks targeting Iran's infrastructure have been another key battleground, including the Stuxnet virus that damaged Iran's nuclear centrifuges.

The Iran-Israel proxy conflict has deep historical roots going back to Iran's Islamic Revolution in 1979 and the end of previously warm Iran-Israel ties. It is fueled by religious and ideological hostility, competing geopolitical ambitions, and Iran's desire to be the dominant power in the Middle East. For decades, Lebanon and Syria have been major flashpoints, such as during the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah war.

As Iran continues to expand its influence in the region through Shia militias and support for groups opposed to Israel, the Israel-Iran rivalry looks set to remain a major source of tensions. This NewsNow feed aims to keep readers continuously updated on the latest Iran-Israel proxy conflict news from reliable sources, helping them track key events and analysis of this complex, long-running confrontation.
