The causal relationship between environmental security - energy resources (oil and gas) - and the outbreak of armed conflict is complex. Environmental security emerges within the reduction of energy resources context and interacts with this contextual factor to contribute to armed conflict. To examine this relationship, the impact of armed conflict on environmental security arising from these scarcities, and the ensuing towards war. We subsequently apply this framework to analyse the link between environmental security and armed conflicts in the Persian Gulf. Within Persian Gulf, wars had arisen at precisely with goal to achieve energy resource since 1980. His article provides a new perspective on these events by analysing the link between the Persian Gulf's environmental security and armed conflicts. To prevent armed conflicts and their related impacts on environmental security, regional and international organizations� collaborations are required because the continuation of these kinds of conflicts will certainly lead to environmental, humanitarian, and security tragedies in the region
