Mapping Iran-U.S. Tensions in the Middle East

The Middle East is a powder keg that could easily explode. The geo-political ambitions of Iran coupled with the USA's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal has resulted in the spread of instability and conflict in the region. You can view the locations of possible flashpoints in the area on Crisis Group's new interactive map The Iran-U.S. Trigger List.

The Iran-U.S. Trigger List map shows locations throughout the Middle East which could be potential trigger points for conflict between the two countries. The map is designed as an early warning platform to monitor and provide regular updates on the potential areas of conflict between Iran and the U.S. It is also a great resource for anyone interested in learning more about the tensions between Iran and the U.S. and their respective allies.

The map uses a simple color based system to provide an overview of the potential risk of confrontation in each marked location. Red markers on the map show locations with a high threat level, while green markers indicate a moderate threat level. If you select a marker on the map you can read a detailed analysis of why the chosen location provides a risk to peace in the Middle East. This analysis includes a timeline of recent developments in the area and the historical background to this potential flashpoint for conflict.
