Mediterranean Sea UPSC NOTE

 Why in News

  • An Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander said the Mediterranean Sea could be closed if the U.S. and its allies continued to commit “crimes” in Gaza.

  • Iran backs Hamas against Israel and it accuses the U.S. of backing what it calls Israeli crimes in Gaza.

  • They shall soon await the closure of the Mediterranean Sea, (the Strait of Gibraltar and other waterways).

Mediterranean Sea

  • The Mediterranean Sea is connected to the Atlantic Ocean. 

  • It is surrounded by the Mediterranean Basin and almost completely enclosed by land.

  • On the north by Southern Europe and Anatolia, on the south by North Africa, and on the east by the Levant in West Asia

Why it is important

  • Iran backs Hamas against Israel and it accuses the U.S. of backing what it calls Israeli crimes in Gaza.

  • Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi group has over the past month attacked merchant vessels sailing

through the Red Sea in retaliation for Israel’s assault on Gaza, leading some shipping companies to switch routes.

  • The White House on Friday said Iran was “deeply involved” in planning operations against commercial vessels in the Red Sea.

  • Iran has no direct access to the Mediterranean itself and it was not clear how the Guards could attempt to close it off.
