Iran’s Shadow War with Israel and the West

When a week ago or so Israeli media reported that Mossad foiled Iranian assassination and abduction plots in Africa, it was a reminder of the extent and persistence of the Shadow War waged between the Revolutionary Guards Quds Force and its Israeli and Western adversaries. It is definitely a mutual exchange of blows, played out in Syria, Iraq, the High Seas and numerous cities around the world, by units, squads, proxies, planes, missiles and drones. Up to now, these seemed more needle pricks than hammer blows, but if they cause excessive or collateral casualties, this war may leave the shadows and escalate out into the open, with spiraling attributions and retributions.
