In the latest twist of the Middle East jamming drama, Spain’s national public broadcaster TVE has claimed that its satellite channel TVE Internacional is suffering "deliberate interference" from Iran and Syria.

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the agency that governs Spanish radio and TV, has denounced the "attack" from the governments of Iran and Syria to broadcasts of Western media, such as TVE, BBC, France 24, Deutsche Welle and Voice of America.
