Middle East

While the world is occupied with a virus, the Middle East is a powder keg waiting to be lit. The past two weeks have seen strange explosion around the Nuclear facility in Iran, a huge explosion in Lebanon, and fires being set in various places. Israel is on high alert due to Hezbollah. Watch! Turkey is one to watch as they lay claim to new territory.  Israel, Cyprus and Greece signed a deal in January for a pipeline and then finalized aspects of that deal in July.  Israel, Cyprus and Greece signed a deal in January for a pipeline and then finalized aspects of that deal in July.
Turkey is sending its navy to sea with drilling and survey ships this week to challenge these deals and put its facts on the ground. Turkey sent the Oruc Reis ship to conduct “survey activity” far in the Mediterranean between Cyprus and Crete. Turkey says it will “defend the rights” of itself and Northern Cyprus, an unrecognized country that Turkey factors into its claims at sea. Lots going on in the world today.
