Just as the Islamic Republic of Iran prepared to mark the fourth anniversary of the death of the late Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) Quds Force Qasem Soleimani, news broke that Israel launched an operation that killed Hamas’ deputy politburo head Saleh al-Arouri.

On December 25, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) Quds Force’s Unit 2250 in Syria Razi Mousavi was killed in a targeted airstrike near Damascus. Mousavi was an experienced commander, and the grandness of his funeral was a signal as to how important he was to the Iranian system. But the infrastructure that he constructed and operated will remain.

News reports are proliferating about ongoing indirect talks between the United States and Iran, brokered by American partners in the Middle East, such as Oman. The diplomatic arrangement being contemplated would, importantly, not be a revived Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) of 2015.

On March 10, 2023, China brokered a deal to normalize relations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and Saudi Arabia after Riyadh severed ties following an attack on the Saudi embassy in Tehran in 2016.
