Iran has increased its expansion in the Arab World after 2011. The Iranians have exploited turmoil to infiltrate some Arab countries. The government of Hasan Rouhani has provided a new push for Tehran’s efforts of soft expansion in Arab societies. Iran’s tools in some Arab countries, which face struggle and political and security chaos, are trying to exploit current complexities and challenges to make breakthroughs in the state and society. For years, Tehran has been trying to employ the confrontation of the Arab World with terrorism for its interest, exactly as it is trying to utilize the outcome of the international dimension of the same battle. This threatens the future of the Arab strategic security.
