The Soviet-Arab War (Russian: Советско-арабской войны Sovetsko-arabskoy voyny) (Arabic: الحرب العربية السوفياتي) also known as the Second Great Patriotic War (Russian: Вторая Великая Отечественная война Vtoroy Velikoy Otechestvennoy voyny) originally as Operation Jihad (Arabic: عملية الجهاد) was fought between the Second Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the League of Arab States.
The war was a result of heated tensions between the Arab League and the resurrected Soviet Union, a result of King Abdullah's desire for Islamic resistance to communism. Most of the Arab League's supporters were the Arabian nations, that consisted of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and becaue of political pressure, Kuwait was forced to join the Arabian coalition. Libya and Turkey also fought on the side of the Arab League and was used to make incursions into Georgia. The Persian Coalition, consisting of Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan (who was not part of the Second USSR) formed as a buffer zone, between the Soviet armies up north and the Arab armies to the south but more often had to deal with Arab attempts to invade Persia causing the Persian Coalition to favor the Soviet Union.
