Iran represents the second largest military forces in Syria today after Russia, America and Turkey. The Iranian forces participate as a guarantor of the ceasefire system in the northwest of Syria, and are considered the main supporter of the Syrian regime forces in ground operations. The Iranian forces presence in Syria also poses a threat to Israel's national security policies.
