On January 18th, Iran’s parliament announced that it is preparing a draft resolution on a “defence and security treaty for the Axis of Resistance” which it will sign with its allies, states and non-state actors.
This organization will be alongside the “Axis of Resistance”. It includes Iran, Syria, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, the Houthi-led government of Yemen, Iraq’s Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF), Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
The aim of the “NATO-style” treaty is to oblige members to respond collectively to any attack on any members by Israel or other hostile states.
The deputy of Iran’s parliament, Abu Fadl Abu Trabi, said that work is currently underway to collect the necessary signatures so that the draft resolution can be approved for discussion and voting.
“When Israel attacks one of the Resistance Front countries or if Israel takes any action against this axis,” he explained, “the other member states of the group must exert all of their efforts in the military, economic and political aspects to ward off the threat.”

Looks like yesterday they submitted into their parliament a draft for the creation of a NATO modeled pact of sorts. Seems their axis of resistance is being sought with their already existing alliances. Perhaps this gives precedent for them to unify their commands so instead if working as Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Hamas and the Houthis (haha the triple HHH) in a scattering of far strung isolated events they become a single entity working in tandem with related units in the area.
Lets keep a timeline on this, seema to be a reasonable guage for direct confrontations to begin going forward. Israel counters forces in Syria on a near daily basis and has now for many years with a surgical precision. However long, if ever this axis of resisyance is formed, that next air strike will be the pre cursor for a united offensive by the Axis powers.
