Iran's Fars news alleges that Iran's airstrike on Israel has undermined one of India's key international initiatives – the IMEC transit and transport corridor. This corridor is designed to bypass Iran and Russia.

The corridor facilitates the transportation of goods from India to the United Arab Emirates by sea, then overland to Israel, and finally by ship to Europe. The project holds not only economic significance but also carries political and strategic weight.

According to the Oriental Express, Indian leadership, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has emphasized the project's importance for India in recent days. Damage to Indian geopolitical interests could potentially lead to the emergence of Iran as a significant adversary.
