#PT And here's radar image of the port of #Aden using @sentinel_hub Sentinel-1 SAR with an Oil Slick Custom script and Planet to show the spill. Note the image shows both water surface roughness and the spill itself, so it's not all oil in yellow.. Image

THREAD: Research Fellow @hu_rdman writes about the attack on Aden airport on Dec 30, 2020, when he and other colleagues narrowly escaped death at what should have been a celebratory occasion welcoming the arrival of the newly formed Yemeni government.
sanaacenter.org/publications/a…
At the #Aden airport, "the crowd was divided in two: to the right were #STC supporters... and to the left were supporters of the #GoY. However, the groups soon mingled and exchanged greetings... I whispered to a colleague: “It seems Santa Claus has been generous this year."
But around 2:00 pm, the airport was hit by three explosions, & it took @hu_rdman awhile to realize what had happened. "Five minutes & just 20 meters saved us from certain death. A loud explosion rocked the airport lounge, where we were supposed to go to carry out live coverage."

THREAD: Yemeni PM @DrMaeenSaeed was the guest at the #Yemen_Media_Call during which he talked to over 70 attendees from int'l media, INGOs and UN missions, addressing the formation and priorities of the newly formed #GoY as well as the situation in Aden.
sanaacenter.org/publications/n…
PM @DrMaeenSaeed: Missiles that struck a runway at #Aden international airport December 30, 2020, were an attempt by the #Houthis to target the airplane carrying members of the new government that had just landed.
PM @DrMaeenSaeed: Debris collected from the attack site indicated the missiles were identical to some fired earlier in Marib for which the #Houthis had taken responsibility. The attack was unexpected, given that the airport is a civilian facility and media were present there.

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

#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.
