  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Israel-Gaza: Latest upsurge in violence suggests no end in sight” – below is their description.

    The latest flare-up in violence enters its second week, Israel claims its airstrikes have destroyed miles of Hamas tunnels.

    It also claims to have taken out a commander from Islamic Jihad, a militant group closely linked to Iran.

    Hamas has fired yet more rockets across into southern Israel hitting the coastal town of Ashdod, where several people were reported injured.

    With international diplomats working to end the military conflict, Israel finds itself under pressure from traditional allies in the west.

    But it’s also under pressure from within not to end the military action, but to resolve the simmering ethnic tensions that has exploded in towns like Lod and Bat Yam in recent days.

    In This Story: Iran

    Iran, also called Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a country in Western Asia. Its central location in Eurasia and proximity to the Strait of Hormuz give it significant geostrategic importance. Tehran is the capital and largest city.

    Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.

    Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.

    The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
