The Arab Spring in the Middle East, which first started in Tunisia in 2010;
In the Arab world, governments based on a single leader or family authoritarian Arab societies, which rebelled against the martial law practices of the regimes, wanted the necessary reforms to be made to ensure political freedoms, protect human rights, fair share of income and eliminate unemployment.
The process, which initially started with demonstration marches to meet these demands, evolved into civil war as the rebellion in some countries turned into armed actions, and the movement, which became more chaotic over time, resulted in the overthrow of governments in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Libya.
Unlike the processes experienced in Tunisia and Egypt, the Arab Spring process turned into an area of intense conflict in Syria due to both the harsh attitude of the government against the protests and the involvement of external actors in the issue.
This conflict area that emerged was effective in spreading the conflict to larger areas by paving the way for the emergence of new actors over time.
The crisis in Syria, in which external actors sided with both the Assad regime and the opposition, created a hot conflict area throughout the country, and at the same time caused the beginning of a struggle for influence at the global and regional level over Syria.
Now Palestine is in the line of fire. While the war continues in full force with Israel’s invasion of Gaza, which started on October 7, and its attacks to wipe it off the map, the axis of the war is shifting towards the USA and Iran.
The attack on the US base on the Jordan-Syria border, followed by Washington’s strikes on targets linked to Iran in Iraq and Syria, further increased tension in the region.
Iranians are aware of the story written by the USA: Let’s hit Iran on Iranian soil. IIt is clear that they will respond without hesitation to any aggression against Iran. The USA is very experienced in starting wars and ensuring instability in Middle Eastern countries.
It is very important what Iran’s reaction will be if the US and UK operations against the Houthis increase in the Red Sea.
In such a situation, Yemen will make its own decisions. There may be similarities in responding to what happened in Gaza.
The basis of the recent tensions are the massacres committed by Israel in Gaza. During a war that lasted more than 3 months, a ceasefire was tried, but Israel rejected it each time. Israel is against peace and feeds on war. Iran defines every step taken by the USA in the region for years as a policy of enmeshing the country. It is obvious that the USA and Western countries are injecting new crises into the Middle East.
In the event of a possible war, would there be real solidarity between Türkiye and Iran?
The fact that common threats in the region make solidarity mandatory is also seen as an important factor.
