As the United States and Western countries continue to push for a deal with Iran regarding its nuclear program, Israel is watching with great concern as Washington considers removing Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) from the terror blacklist. The possible move by the administration of President Joe Biden would be in return for a public commitment from Iran to de-escalate in the region. A commitment that Israeli officials do not believe would be kept.

Israel has been carrying out its war-between-wars campaign for close to a decade in an attempt to prevent Iran from entrenching itself in Syria and to stop Tehran from smuggling advanced weaponry to its proxy in Lebanon, Hezbollah. The IRGC and its Quds Force were the main targets of Israel’s campaign, known in Hebrew as MABAM. Over the years it has carried out thousands of kinetic strikes, in Syria and further from its borders, by land, sea, air as well as cyberkineticly in order to prevent the Iranian regime from reaching its goal of regional hegemony as well as becoming a nuclear state.
