Regional aridity impacting again in Israel


The ‘aridity line’ is usually considered to be 200mm of annual rainfall. Below that, you have desert. Israeli forensic architect Eyal Weizman noted in The Conflict Shoreline: ‘Plotting the location of western drone strikes on meteorological maps demonstrates another astounding coincidence: many of these attacks – from South Waziristan through northern Yemen, Somalia, Mali, Iraq, Gaza, and Lybia – are directly on or close to the 200mm aridity line.’
