Iran Summary – November 2023

Author: Anna Schaftel; JINSA Programs & Outreach Associate

November 2023 Summary: Iran and its proxies continued to engage in and support Hamas’ war against Israel, following the brutal attacks it carried out on October 7. Iran-backed groups carried out at least 74 attacks on U.S. forces in the region, according to JINSA’s Iran Projectile Tracker, since the beginning of the Israel-Hamas War. There were also at least five Iran-linked maritime harassment incidents and attacks during November, more than any month this year. Iran-linked hacking groups attacked U.S. critical infrastructure, targeting a water system in Pennsylvania, and are suspected of carrying out spoofing attacks against commercial aircraft in the region. At home, the Islamic Republic carried out executions at a staggering rate, likely taking advantage of the world media’s diverted attention to crack down at home.
