Clashes at the borders of Israel in May 2011, as well as protests by Arab minority in Iranian Khuzestan,have also been inspired by the regional Arab Spring.
    • The protests have shared techniques of civil resistance in sustained campaigns involving strikes, demonstrations, marches, rallies, as well as the use of social media to organize, communicate, and raise awareness in the face of state attempts at repression and Internet censorship.
