This date in history: January 16

A handful of relatively minor Middle East-related things happened on this date in history. Well, OK, the Shah leaving Iran wasn’t “relatively minor,” but the actual fact of his departure was pretty anti-climactic, and anyway you’re not getting a detailed recap of the Iranian Revolution today, sorry. I hope you enjoy this recap of the day’s events that I wrote last year instead.
