There were seven active armed conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa in 2017: Egypt, Iraq, Israel and Palestine, Libya, Syria, Turkey, and Yemen. Many of these conflicts are interconnected and involve regional and international powers as well as numerous substate actors.1 Key regional developments in 2017 included the continuing fallout from the Arab Spring; the regional rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia; and the territorial losses of the Islamic State group. This section first examines these developments and then gives accounts of each of the armed conflicts in 2017.
