Riyadh (UNA-OIC) – The Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) held a presentation on Thursday at its headquarters in Riyadh, entitled “Proxy Warfare – Fourth-Generation Warfare (4GW)”.

During the presentation, Al-Marashda highlighted the concept of proxy war and its mechanisms, as well as its military, political and economic dimensions, and the most important means, tools and features that are used in proxy wars.
He also reviewed the mechanisms and strategies of countries in their use of proxy war methods and ways of prevention, linking the dimensions of this concept – proxy warfare – with the IMCTCs four domains of action (intellectual, media, combating terrorism financing, and military).
