#BREAKING

MSF is witnessing a catastrophe unfold in our #COVID19 treatment centre in #Aden, #Yemen

Apr 30 - May 17 we admitted 173 patients, at least 68 of whom died.

What's worse is we know we are seeing only a small proportion of those people sick and dying in the city.
Government burial statistics in #Aden show that daily burials have risen to 80 from a pre-outbreak normal of 10.

Another indication of how widespread the outbreak has become is the number of healthcare professionals we are treating in our centre.
Many members of our own staff in #Aden are also sick.

“People are coming to us too late to save, and we know that many more people are not coming at all: they are just dying at home. It’s a heartbreaking situation.” — Caroline Seguin, @MSF’s Operations Manager for #Yemen

For weeks, there’ve been warnings about what might happen when #Coronavirus reaches #Yemen.
It is now officially spreading inside the country. @SkyNews has filmed images of graves being dug at a worrying pace & we’ve spoken to @jnbeuze - the head of the @UNHCRYemen [thread]
.@jnbeuze told @SkyNews that the presence of #COVID19 in #Yemen + the impact the virus is having on the economies of wealthy donor countries presents a devastating DUAL BLOW for the country.
He warns that 3.6m displaced people + 280,000 refugees will lose their aid.
More than 24 million Yemenis - 80% of the population - are in need of humanitarian assistance after 6 years of civil war between Saudi-backed government forces & #Houthi rebels aligned to Iran. Half of health facilities are dysfunctional; nearly a 1/4 districts have no doctors.

UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) declares state of emergency in #Aden #Lahj #Shabwa #Abyan #Dhale #Hadramout #Mahra #Socotra, announcing that they are taking over control all of southern provinces by establishing an independent rule from Hadi regime.
STC announcement comes after they barred Hadi officials from returning to visit Aden few days ago as well as a string of military rebellion against Hadi/Islah. Southern separatists believed that Hadi regime has failed to provide basic necessities and hence the need for self-rule.
It must be noted that contrary to some belief, STC doesn't controls all of southern provinces. Hadi/Islah forces currently still controls most of Shabwa (except the coastal part of Belhaf), Wadi Hadramout (northern part of Hadramout province including Seiyun), and Al Mahra.

#Qaeda, #Daesh Reinforce Their Influence In Baidha Under US-Saudi Aggression Cover.

Since the beginning of US-Saudi aggression on Yemen, Al-Qaeda and Daesh have emerged as a partner in the war on #Yemen and they have played an important role in many battles,

seeking to find areas of influence to be a safe place haven for its elements.

The coalition of aggression often resorted to concluding deals with Al-Qaeda and Daesh, granting them areas of influence in exchange for fighting in its ranks, especially in areas where the

1. While many foreign observers praised @Rob_Malley's op-ed in @nytimes, anyone who KNOWS Yemen will find it one-sided. The op-ed does a gross disservice to #Yemen despite good intentions.

At times I thought the op-ed was either naive or deliberately misleading. Here's why:
2. @Rob_Malley gives a narrow view of #Yemen's conflict and re-hashes #Houthis' narrative when he limits the conflict as "#KSA vs. Houthi". He is not inaccurate per se but deliberately selective, ignoring Houthis' overthrow of UN-backed government as a root cause of conflict.
3. For a Conflict group to overlook the root cause of the conflict is to ignore the ABC of policy analysis. #Houthis wanted a monopoly of power in #Yemen and chose violence to do it, committing war crimes during the five past years. Mr.Malley doesn't show opposition against them.

Thread on highlights from #Houthi/#AnsarAllah leader Abdulmalik’s first interview with Al Masirah (@almasirah), the Houthis' TV channel. (Context in parentheses). Thread ≠ endorsement. EN translation linked below (but not great). #Yemen english.almasirah.net/details.php?es…
1/ Some terminology context: (a) the #Houthis call themselves AnsarAllah (AA). To them, “the Houthis” are merely the family with the last name “Houthi” to which Abdulmalik Al Houthi (AMH) belongs; (b) the Houthis call the #Saudi-led coalition “the aggression.” #Yemen
2/ #US/#Israel Conspiracy: AMH blames the “heavy losses and major events” in the region squarely on the US/Israel. Says there is a “defined policy… to target free people… that oppose US and Zionist hegemony” across the region. #Yemen
