The Quds Force supports non-state actors (terrorists) in many countries, including Lebanese Hezbollah, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, Yemeni Houthis, and Shia militias in Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan. The Quds Force (sepāh-e gods) is a unit in Iran's Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) directed to carry out terrorist operations, using unconventional warfare, to conduct intelligence activities and extraterritorial operations.
