The Islamic Resistance in Iraq

Iran's strategy in Iraq demonstrates a complex approach, characterized by its simultaneous fight against ISIS and support for Shia militia groups, reflecting a deep-seated Shia-Sunni schism and Tehran's regional ambitions. Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force (IRGC-QF) plays a pivotal role in supporting these militias, including the Islamic Resistance in Iraq (IRI), by providing financial, military, and logistical support. These Iran-backed groups, often labeled as terrorist organizations, have established significant operational presences in major Iraqi cities, targeting U.S. interests and contributing to regional instability. Iran's dual strategy in the region highlights its efforts to maintain influence and counterbalance U.S. presence while also positioning itself as a critical player in the fight against ISIS.

The landscape of Iraq's Islamic resistance and its complex relationship with Iran, the United States, and various regional dynamics warrants a comprehensive examination. This analysis examines the comprehensive nature of Iraq's Islamic resistance groups, primarily focusing on their formation, objectives, affiliations, and interactions with Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), particularly the IRGC-Quds Force (IRGC-QF). Additionally, it explores the broader context of Iran's influence in Iraq, its strategic interests, and the challenges it poses to regional stability.

Iraqi Islamic resistance usually refers to the Shia armed groups that emerged after the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003 and the subsequent U.S. military intervention in Iraq. These groups have been instrumental in confronting foreign occupying forces and advocating for the establishment of an Islamic state based on Shiite principles within Iraq. Over time, these resistance groups have evolved, taking on crucial roles in both the political and military structures of Iraq, especially in the battle against ISIS since 2014. However, it is important to note that the diversity among these groups has led to differing objectives and tactics.

One common thread among these resistance groups is their connection with Iran. Iran has provided substantial financial and military support to several groups, further entwining their activities with its regional interests. This support has been pivotal in the fight against ISIS and has contributed to Iraq's internal conflicts. Iran's involvement in Iraq, encompassing support for various militia groups and its stance against ISIS reflects a comprehensive approach to regional geopolitics.
