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.

1/ In latest @BulletinAtomic piece, I argue France, UK & Germany can attempt to avoid UN Security Council clash over #Iran arms embargo. Existing embargo should be allowed to lapse & UNSC should agree on new code of conduct for arms sales to #Iran -->
thebulletin.org/2020/04/avoidi… via
2/UN arms embargo on #Iran set to expire less than 3 weeks before US elections. Having preserved #JCPOA framework so far into #Trump admin, unwise for Europe to risk blowing it up now. Esp as EU embargo & UNSC resolutions prohibiting arms transfers to #Houthi & #Hezbollah remain.
3/No option ideal for Europe:
-Side with #Pompeo on extending UNSC arms embargo; or
-Push back too hard against US could result in Pompeo persuading White House to invoke contorted claim it can snap-back all UNSC sanctions
-->Both scenarios likely result in #Iran NPT exit

Who are the #Houthis and why are they fighting the Saudi coalition in #Yemen?

Amid the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, the Houthis show no sign of giving up

Origins as an anti-Saudi resistance group

The #Houthi movement was founded in the 1990s by Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi, a member of #Yemen’s Zaidi Shia minority, which makes up about one-third of the population. Hussein was killed by Yemeni soldiers in 2004, and the

group is now led by his brother Abdul Malik.

The Zaidis, once a powerful force in north Yemen, were sidelined during the 1962-70 civil war and then further alienated in the 1980s as Salafist Sunni ideals gained prominence across the border in Saudi Arabia, which exported the

#COVID-19 has yet to be documented in #Yemen, but Abdel Ilah, who manages the factory that opened three days ago, is getting ready for its arrival. “#Coronavirus is knocking on the whole world’s door,” he said.

The five-year conflict has killed more than 100,000 and unleashed a humanitarian crisis in which many others have died. Yemen’s shattered healthcare infrastructure and already weakened population suggest the virus could wreak more havoc if takes hold.

The Saudi coalition that is warring against #Yemen is slowly crumbling. In recent months, #Sudan reduced its troop deployment from 15,000 to 5,000 - and now down to 675. #Iran is backing the #Houthi government against the #Saleh loyalists backed by the USA, #SaudiArabia & #UAE
The #Saudi-#UAE coalition against #Yemen includes 9 Arab state militaries, 10 support nations (including the USA), Blackwater/#Academi mercenaries, #alQaeda & #ISIS-Yemen. Yes, the USA is aligned with al Qaeda & ISIS forces in Yemen - just like in #Syria.
The #CIA continues to use #alQaeda & #ISIS to do the dirty work of the New World Order. Trump sells weapons to Saudi Arabia for the #MIC. The CIA then diverts some of the weapons from the Saudis to the terrorists. Once again, the POTUS has plausible deniability. #TerroristTrump

The last few days of #US military build up make a lot of sense now. The killing of #Iran Quds Force commander Suleimani cannot be overstated as an escalatory event, even if US will have intended it as ultimate show of force.
Suleimani was the most visible face of Iran’s fight against #IslamicState and US in the region. A huge loss of knowledge and expertise for IRGC and humiliating for #Khamenei after his tweet taunting #Trump. The question now must be what an Iranian response will be.
Iran can not afford not to respond to this level of attack, but does not necessarily have to respond immediately. They will understand how vulnerable Trump is going into the electoral period. US military and energy assets across #Iraq are at high risk of rocket and mortar attack.

#Kuwait is mobilizing its defense and security systems after drones originating from #Iraq, crossed its airspace into #SaudiArabia airspace. It's not a #Houthi affair. It is an Iranian pincer movement.

I have warned months ago that the region was to witness a mass #GameofDrones
I've underlined many times including in OpEds & on FoxNews that #Iran will open a northern front on #Saudi & the Gulf from #Iraq & backed by its presence in #Syria. It's happening. Iranian missiles in Iraq are now the "northern threat to the Gulf

Houthi fighters in Yemen have claimed two drone attacks on Saudi #Aramco factories in Abqaiq and Khurais provinces which sparked large fires. Saudi interior ministry spokesman says the fires in the state oil company have been brought under control
Abqaiq plays a pivotal role in Aramco's day-to-day operations. #Saudi Aramco says #Abqaiq is the company's largest oil processing facility and the largest crude oil stabilization plant in the world saudiaramco.com/en/creating-va…
#SaudiArabia is shutting down about half of its #oil output after apparently coordinated drone strikes hit facilities in what #Yemen’s Houthi rebels described as one of their largest-ever attacks inside the kingdom according to @WSJ & @Reuters wsj.com/articles/drone…

#BREAKING: Largest ever attack against Oil facilities #SaudiArabia's #Aramco is carried-out by Loitering drones launched from #Iraq in support of #Houthi rebels in #Yemen. As its result two Aramco's facilities were hit 4 times in #Buqayq/#Abqaiq early morning. Here is the video
#BREAKING: According to a source from Royal #SaudiArabia Air Force, the loitering drones which attacked the Aramco's Oil facilities in #Buqayq/#Abqaiq early morning today are most likely launched from #Iraq & not by #Houthi rebels in #Yemen.It took 3 hours to control the fire👇
#BREAKING: Without the help of #Iran's Islamic Regime & #IRGC it is almost impossible for #Iraq's #PMU (Hashd al-Shaabi) or #Yemen's #Houthi rebels to carry-out such a massive attack at #SaudiArabia's Oil industry deep inside the country's territory in #Buqayq/#Abqaiq today.

1. #Yemen #UN Group of Eminent Experts just released second annual report.

GEE recommend states strengthen their mandate at #UN Human Rights Council this month, incl. to collect + preserve evidence of abuse and report directly to HRC.

Thread below.

ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/HR…
2. After release of first report, #Yemen #UAE #Saudi #Egypt refused to cooperate with group.

Despite restrictions, GEE conducted >600 interviews w/ victims, witnesses and other sources, and examined a large volume of documentary and open-source material.
3. Legal context: non-international armed conflict between Houthis and GoY, with coalition as parties (tbd how UAE/Yemen battles impact in future).

Also note other non-international armed conflicts, incl between AQAP and GoY, with IHL applying to US actions against AQAP.

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.

1. #Houthis of #Yemen raised funds for #Hezbollah during the month of #Ramadan

It's not the first time. Yet many found the news surprising.

#Houthis' ties to #Hezbollah & #Iran are undeniable. This thread will clarify some misconceptions about this clandestine alliance.
2. First, let's begin with Houthi's recent fundraiser in #Yemen to support #Hezbollah.

Source for this? #Houthis OFFICIAL news agency.

The fundraiser started this month of Ramadan & is ongoing. Millions of Yemeni Riyals were collected for Hezbollah & Houthis' war in Yemen;
3.#Houthis used their Radio station to mobilize this multi-phase initiative to support the war. They managed to raise over 120 000 in one month. But they deemed the Hezbollah fundraiser "the most important stage of the fundraiser & a token of gratitude for #Hezbollah's help"
