Iran's Militarization of West Bank Raises Concerns

The Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), Ziyad al-Nakhalah, was interviewed by the al-vefag (Al-Wifaq) newspaper affiliated with the Supreme National Security Council media outlets. The interview with Al-Nakhala provides a clear insight into the stance of his Iranian patrons and the purpose of his visit to Iran in mid-June. During the interview and his visit, Nakhala emphasized the significance of advancing armed activities in the West Bank and Iran's crucial contribution in providing military, economic, and political support to the PIJ. Iran places great importance on expanding its activities in the West Bank and aims to enhance the process of Lebanonization concerning actions against the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). This involves deploying tactics such as using Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFP) explosive devices against the IDF forces, employing snipers, and setting up ambushes. (Iran Dossier)
