Yemeni Military Spox : @army21ye :Today we review some numbers and information on the confrontations of five years of steadfastness and of the challenge, despite the huge difference in the number and equipment between Yemen and its enemies.
1-The Yemeni armed forces succeeded in countering the fierce aggressive attack, even though it was outside the scope of the military and combat readiness to start the aggression.
2-The aggression raids announced by us are limited to what was monitored, and there are raids that were not monitored, especially during the first years of the aggression.

#Sundaythoughts #Ethiopia

Cooperation & economic integration in the Nile Basin, especially b/n Ethiopia, Sudan, and Egypt can bring peace & prosperity for the region’s 250m people. #Sudan could irrigate more food, while Ethiopia can power us all under less loss to irrigation.
To move from the current Cold War into cooperation, we must see the Nile river system as a resource to be maximized by all of us in the region. With a rising Africa full of aspirations, sole Egyptian ownership of the Nile with a small allowance for Sudan is no longer tenable.
Unfortunately, this is unacceptable for #Egypt.

For Ethiopia, we have even more reasons to build the #GERD. Egypt’s attempts to continue to be the sole beneficiary of the Nile has greatly contributed towards our political instability for a very long time.

(1/10) This is a report card on #Eritrea Prez Isaias Afwerki considered by himself & NNNN as a political architect of the Horn of Africa. From #Somalia, #Sudan, #SouthSudan, #Djibouti, to #Ethiopia, he has wasted #Eritrean treasury grooming satellite orgs. All for nothing.
(2/10) #SouthSudan: The #SPLA had members who were for secession & members for reforming Sudan and remaining part of it. Despite Isaias Afwerki's cries, the secessionist won and they proved it in a referendum where 99% voted for independence. Isaias didn't attend the ceremony.
(3/10) #Darfur Sudan: Although #Eritrea has no border with West Sudan, Isaias inserted himself &, along with #Qatar (now enemy state) conducted a long and useless effort, including hosting armed Darfuri rebels. In the intra #Sudan reconciliation now, he has no role or influence.

Today, the expanded #MuslimBan went into effect, impacting 300 million people. The list of countries banned in part or in full, includes Burma, Eritrea, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Libya, Nigeria, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Yemen, and Venezuela.
#Burma was added to the expanded #MuslimBan. Burma's population is 57 million of which 4% are Muslim - including the Rohingya Muslims who have been heavily targeted by the government. All immigrants from Burma are barred, except ‘Special Immigrants’
#Eritrea, another country added to the #MuslimBan as part of the #AfricanBan has a population of 6 million of which 50% are Muslim. All immigrants from Eritrea are barred, except ‘Special Immigrants.'

Brief thread. There's much discussion around whether the #ICC can hold trials or hearings in another country. It can, but it has declined to do so on multiple occasions, including in Libya, Kenya, DRC, and Uganda. Even in stable situations, it has chosen not to. #Bashir #Sudan
In some cases, both the prosecution *and* the defence were on board for an in situ hearing (for example in the case of Dominic Ongwen in northern Uganda) but were thwarted. This raises important questions about local vs international justice…
Those questions are too often characterized simplistically and/or reduced to mere issues of 'distance'. Being closer victims and survivors is crucially important and worthy in its own right, but hearings in situ also elevate the dependence of the #ICC on the states in question.

This could be huge! Victims have been waiting for justice for widespread atrocities committed in #Darfur for 15+ years. Keen to have more details on plans for #Bashir to at last face the #ICC charges against him. Some further info on case at @hrw:…
@hrw I first began working on the campaign to see perpetrators of widespread crimes in #Darfur held to account in 2004 as @HRW continued to document the extreme brutality against civilians:…
@hrw It was time when the prospect of the #UNSC coming together to ensure justice for the gravest crimes at the #ICC was more on the table than in recent years. (see:…). But given the #US anti-ICC position, it was far from a foregone conclusion.

Today's surprise announcement by Netanyahu that Israel & #Sudan have begun a process toward normalizing relations is a major development for #Sudan, and a controversial one.
#Sudan's transitional government has yet to issue an official statement on the talks between the Israeli PM and the Chairman of #Sudan's Sovereign Council, Lt. Gen. Burhan, who took power in April 2019 as part of a junta that overthrew longtime president Omar al Bashir.
#Sudan's transitional govt is a forced union between the security leaders who seized power from Bashir and civilians chosen by a broad coalition of groups that led protests for Bashir's ouster. Under a deal brokered in July 2019, Burhan heads a joint military-civilian council...

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

@unhcr #UNHCR

According to research by the weekly magazine "@sternde", employees of the @UN refugee agency @Refugees were able to enable #Africans to move to the #West in exchange for #cash payments. Among other things,
the #employees issued false #papers with which the #Africans made it onto the coveted lists of the so-called "resettlement" program.
Several western states, including #Germany, offer refugees who are particularly worthy of #protection a secure future in their country. Above all,
people who are at risk of #disease and #persecution should benefit from this.However, since there are currently only 50,000 to 60,000 such resettlements per year worldwide, the chances of getting one of the places are negligible.

1/ If, as this thread by @yashar suggests, the #US airstrikes in #Baghdad, #Iraq lead to #Iran violently retaliating worldwide, one region of immediate concern could be the Horn of Africa.

My take on the latest saga relating to the #GERD, mainly focusing on the key element of the official joint statement of #Egypt, #Ethiopia, #Sudan, #US & #WorldBank which was released following the meeting held in the US on 6th of November 👇

The key word is "INVOKED" 1/9
#Egypt achieved its main goal by getting #Ethiopia to agree to invoke Article 10 of the 2015 Declaration of Principle should the ministers of the tripartite failed to reach an agreement by 15 January 2020. Ethiopia shouldn't have attended the meeting, let alone an agreement. 2/9
The fundamental question is: why is #Egypt now keen on invoking Article 10 of the 2015 Declaration? Why not in the past? It's been nearly five years since this Declaration

Let me start with the basics by identifying the critical item that would raise eyebrows in Article 10: 3/9
