Kharg Island is Iranís primary oil export terminal in the Persian Gulf. This rocky limestone island is unique because it is one of the few islands in the Persian Gulf with freshwater which has collected within the porous limestone. In addition to its commercial and strategic importance, the freshwater has biological importance, supporting populations of gazelles.
This is the underground hardened site that Iran today announced would be opened. Iran allowed IAEA inspectors to open seals and install cameras. It is here that Iran concentatrates uranium sufficiently to create nuclear weapons.
Also known as Bouvetoya Island, this island was in the movie AvP as the site of the Predator's pyramid. The location in the movie (according to their satellite images) of the island is incorrect. I'm working on another image overlay for their island location.
