Throughout the Middle East region last week, there was a spike in both demonstrations and remote violence events. For the former, the increase occurred most significantly in Iran, where wide scale economic protests continue, and in Israel, where people responded to the latest round of border violence with Gaza. That violence took the form of heavy rocket fire from both Gazan armed groups and the Israeli military following another breakdown in the ceasefire. In Syria, heavy regime and rebel shelling in the northwest also contributed to this spike in events.
