Technology really plays a role in Near Eastern security dynamics and the armed conflict in the Near East. Russia is among the powers to supply weapons in the Near East. China is a factor in supplying technologically advanced weaponry in the Near East. This adds to the armed conflict and security issues in the region.
Iran is developing nuclear missile capabilities in the region, adding to the dangers in the region. Not to mention, this causes an additional security threat to Israel.
