A new method of warfare was introduced as the first suicide bomber drove a white Mercedes loaded with explosives into the Israeli army headquarters in the city of Tyre. This act was followed by the bombings of U.S. embassy and U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut. Shia theology glorifies the act of self martyrdom or "shuhada" claiming to provide the "martyr" with a direct path to heaven. A new tactic would soon find many copycats as it spread all around the Arabian Peninsula and reach Afghanistan from where the plan was devised to destroy the Twin Towers on 9/11/01.

  After fierce battles in July, 2017 the Hay'et Tahrir Al-Sham group, previously known as Al Nusra Front, forced the rival group, Ahrar al-Sham, out of Syrian city of Idlib. Al Nusra Front was previosly affiliated with Al-Qaida. Ahrar al-Sham is currenbtly backed by Turkey and several Gulf countries. It's a Sunni Slafist movement who's goal is to defeat Assad regime and establish Islamic goverment in Syria. Hay'et Tahrir Al-Sham group has refused to engage in any talks with Syrian regime while Ahrar al-Sham did partisipate in Astana, Kazakhstan negotiations. Two groups agreed on the ceasefire and exchange of prisoners.

  In March of 2017, Shia militia called Harakat al-Nujaba, trained and financed by Iran's Revolutionary Guard, made an announcement at press conference in Iran regarding the creation of "Golan Liberation Brigade". The spokesmen, Mr Seyed Hashem Moussavi, also added that "This is a trained army with specific plans. If the government of Syria requests, we and our allies are ready to take action to liberate Golan. We will not permit Arab and Islamic countries in the region to remain in the grasps of the occupiers.”  

 A hard-liner Palestinian militant who served more than 20 years in Israeli prisons has been chosen as the new leader of Hamas in Gaza. The new leader, Yehya Sinwar, was promoted after two weeks of secret negotiations within Hamas. Sinwar replaces Ismail Haniyeh, who served as the prime minister of Hamas' government since the 2007 takeover of Gaza from rival Fatah group, currently in charge of the West Bank. Haniyeh is now expected to take over as Hamas' supreme leader, replacing Khaled Mashaal, who currently resides in Qatar.

 Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham, or the Sham Liberation Organization (SLO) was formed in January of 2017. The SLO was created from a merger of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham, formerly Al-Qaeda affiliate of Al-Nusra Front and several other groups including the Nour Al-Din Al-Zinki group, Jabhat Ansar Al-Din, the Army of the Sunnah and the Liwa Al-Haq armed faction. The leader of new alliance Hashem al-Sheikh vowed to to escalate attacks against the Syrian army and its Iranian-backed allies with the goal of toppling President Bashar al-Assad.
