#China’s #Iran-#Saudi Deal a Tool to Avoid Any Wave of Democratic Regime Change:

I was quoted
@EpochTimes @venusupadhayaya


I highlighted: Saudi MBS Vision 2030, requires
“De-escalation with Turkey, Qatar, Syria, resumption of relations…

with #Iran and de-facto relations with Israel are all linked to his 2030 vision,”. Bahrami said that although these deals are being defined between China and Iran, they are still waiting for US to revive #JCPOA.
“As long as international sanctions and banking sanctions

against Iran exist, such deals with China remain on paper. #Iran was also blacklisted by the #FATF. China is not in a position to take the risk of U.S. sanctions for dealing with Iran,” Bahrami said. Regarding China-Iran military deal, Bahrami said: China is seeking to

The resumption of #Saudi-#Iran relations has triggered what I believe to be exaggerated reaction about #China’s emergence as a #MiddleEast powerbroker and a strategic shift of #Riyadh away from its traditional partners. 1/17
Some context: in an October meeting in #Jeddah, a #Saudi leader at the highest level explained his strategy was to defeat #Iran through growth. The fact that KSA is the fastest growing G-20 country, w/trillions invested in everything from tourism to mining, supports this. 2/17
But growth takes time - and growth can be sidetracked through insecurity, whether from #Houthi missiles or the threat of nuclear blackmail. To protect the long-term strategy, he said, KSA needs security. 3/17

Spokesman for the Peaceful Sit-in Committee for the People of #AlMahrah, Ali Mubarak Bin Mahamad, confirmed that, “The visit of US ambassador and the commander of the Fifth Fleet confirms all the warnings

launched by the sit-in committee about the seriousness of the violation of sovereignty and the legitimacy of the occupation”.

Spokesperson held the presidential leadership council loyal to Saudi Arabia and UAE responsible for this visit, which legitimizes the violation of

The US Ambassador, Stephen Geffen, and the commander of US Fifth Fleet, Brad Cooper, visited Al-Ghaydah Airport, which Saudi Arabia has turned it into a military base, while the US website (HuffPost) confirmed a few days ago that US is

1. The level of callousness in which #Yemen's conflict is depicted is truly insulting to Yemenis. This article published by @thehill is poorly researched & amateurishly written w/out fact checking. It's full of misinformation & unquantifiable statements.…
2. In reporting the number of civilians killed by the Saudis, authors manipulated the information and made an inaccurate citation from a UN study choosing to attribute the entire war casualty estimate of 337K to #Saudis, and not the 15K reported UN estimate.
3. The authors of this article have completely failed to fact-check the numbers and information presented. In fact, the same source they reference undermines their own claims & reveals the misinformation included in the article. Ignoring casualties committed by #Houthis is biased

One of the less-covered issues with regards to the #Yemen conflict, is how the #Iran-backed Houthis have carried out a systematic campaign of arrest and intimidation to muzzle any semblance of “opposition”
Journalists not following the Houthi-controlled government line have systematically been arrested, some of them detained for years without a trial
Those who have been tried received severe sentences, including death sentences. They face the prospect of torture in detention camps, and their families are often unaware of their fate.

🚩A month ago, the truce expired in #Yemen due to inacceptable last-minute Houthi demands to have the salaries of members of their “government” and even “armed forces” be paid through oil revenues.

A thread 🧵
The truce lasted six-months and helped ease the humanitarian crisis in the country. Shipments of fuel increased, regular flights to and from Sana’a reopened Image
The Houthi on the other hand did not uphold their end of the bargain, failing to reopen roads to the city of #Taiz. A recent deadly road accident in the dangerous mountain roads near the city shows the price of such failure. ImageImageImage

The meeting, which was attended by Deputy Foreign Minister Hussein Al-Ezzi, and the leader of the Jihad movement, Dr. Magdi Azzam, reviewed the developments on the Palestinian arena and the victories achieved by the resistance and the Palestinian
people over the Zionist enemy.

Al-Nuaimi praised the capabilities of the resistance factions, particularly the Islamic Jihad Movement, in managing the battle of “the squares unity”, which was accompanied by an unprecedented military momentum in the history of the
confrontation with the Zionist enemy.
He reiterated the position of the Republic of #Yemen in support of the Palestinian cause, the leadership and people, noting that the Palestinian cause for the Yemeni people, as the revolution leader Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-#Houthi emphasized,

With #OPEC Plus clinging to #oil pumping operations at nearly the same level, which leads to a continuous rise in fuel prices globally, in my opinion, the key to this crisis is in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
#KSA #USA #Russia #Ukraine #EU #NATO #Iran Image
As it is known, #Riyadh is the second largest oil exporter in the world with about 10 mbd and the second largest reserves. #SaudiArabia also leads the #OPEC, which includes a number of oil exporters, making it an important influence on global oil prices.
It is important to stress that the current rise started since the 4th quarter of last year, months before Russian invasion in #Ukraine, with assurances from #US, confirming its attempt to communicate with the Saudi side to raise the level of production, hitting a dead end.

Meine Lieben.
Ich bin zurück, nun kann´s mit Twitter-News weiter gehen.
Ich habe wieder unglaublich viel Material zum #UkraineKrieg , das ich erstmal sortieren muss. Ein Thread dazu kommt daher vsl MORGEN.
Heute ein Thread zu zwei anderen Konflikten: Jemen und Karabach👇
In den letzten Tagen ist der Konflikt zwischen dem #Yemen und #SaudiArabia deutlich eskaliert.
Die #Houthis haben saudische Ölanlagen mit Dutzenden Drohnen attackiert.
Teile der Anlagen sind komplett niedergebrannt.
#Saudis flogen Luftangriffe als Vergeltung.
Die saudische Flugabwehr präsentierte sich wieder mal als recht löchrig.
Einige der Drohnen konnten wohl abgeschossen werden, etwa zwei Dutzend kamen dennoch durch.
Das Ganze ist durchaus erstaunlich, da Riad eigentlich über moderne Flugabwehrsysteme aus den USA verfügt.

#Yemeni Blood for #Saudi Oil

the Saudi-led coalition launched airstrikes on the capital Sana’a and the port city of Hodeida – a key entry point for humanitarian aid – early on Saturday.

The strikes on Sana’a reportedly killed eight civilians…
UK Education secretary, Nadhim Zahawi:

"This is not something that should be taken lightly, that someone can go into a country illegally, and start bombing civilians, and feel that there is no there is no response from the global community"

Today, Russian Defense Minister Shoigu announced that there are more than 16,000 volunteers ready to support and fight in #Lugansk and #Donetsk if #Russia requests it.
#Ukraine #USA #NATO #EU #UK #Biden
This announcement was not surprising to me or to those familiar with the scene in #Syria in particular and the Middle East in general. In my opinion, #Moscow is able to mobilize more than double that number and has already started accepting recruitment requests.
There are two types of militias in the Middle East, one part carrying a religious ideology (like #Hezbollah), and another part in the form of security companies, among which the fighters volunteered for economic reasons (25th Brigade in #Syria).

Oh hello…. A drone reportedly from “Eastern #Iraq” that was intercepted by coalition forces near/on its way to #Erbil.

That drone looks familiar…. 🙃 ImageImageImage
This design shares more of a resemblance/design characteristics with the ones we’ve seen used in #Yemen / #Saudi, but they all are derived from the #Iran|ian “Shahed-136” ImageImage
The Iranian variant and the derived Wa’eed which belongs to the #Houthi’s (Yemen has two variants, technically) have a slightly different nose and winglets. ImageImage

#Iran-backed #Houthi militia is now involved in at least two attacks resulting in injuries+death of #Pakistan citizens in #KSA+#UAE. In May 2021, Houthis targeted #Jeddah within hours of the arrival of PM #ImranKhan+First Lady [see: ] /1
Apart from killing a #Pakistan citizen, the #Houthi attack on @AdnocGroup facility targets an energy partner of six largest Pakistani oil & gas companies [See ]

#Pakistan has so far avoided directly criticizing #Iran-backed proxies in the region in order to avoid altercations with #Tehran and its feared #IRGC/QF paramilitaries. But now #Houthis increasingly pose a direct threat to Pak interests in the #Gulf. /3

#Iran-backed #Houthi attack in #AbuDhabi comes days after #UAE NSA met Iranian NSA in #Tehran. Meeting appeared cordial in pictures [see ].

Earlier, Iran issued inflammatory statements on UAE-#Israel bilateral exchanges [see ]
The #AbuDhabi attack would mark an escalation in the activities of #Iran-backed militias around the #Gulf region. The first days of the year have seen an escalation in #Iraq against the Iraqi government and #US outposts. [See &
A #Pakistan citizen killed in alleged #Houthi attack on #UAE. If confirmed, this will not be the first time that actions of #Iran-backed militia resulted in Pakistani casualties. Iranian malign activity directly impacts vital Pakistani interests in #Gulf.

#SaudiArabia expels #Lebanon ambassador. #GCC states expected to follow suit. Decision could impact Lebanese labor; comes after 🇱🇧 govt minister supports #Houthi militia in #Yemen. But this step reflects #Gulf frustration at #Iran-backed #Hezbollah militia's chokehold over 🇱🇧. /1
#Saudi decision to throw out #Lebanon ambassador is not a sudden move but also caps years of #Iran/#IRGC using #Lebanon produce/fruit export trucks to smuggle narcotics into the #Gulf. /2

Deeply honoured that @PrixBayeux has given us the TV award for this report from #Yemen in January. It comes as the UN Human Rights Council halts an independent investigation into possible war crimes by all sides in #Yemen. #YemenCantWait
This is Ruwaydah, 8. She was shot in the head by a sniper, as she went to collect water. It was her brother Amri, 10, who dragged her to safety. Human rights activists in #Taiz have documented hundreds of attacks on children by #Houthi snipers. #YemenCantWait
The maiming and killing of children is not limited to one side in the war in #Yemen. We reported in 2018 on the school boys killed when their bus was hit in an airstrike by the #Saudi led coalition. At least 40 children never came home. #YemenBusAttack #YemenCantWait

#Hamas Al-Qassam Brigades publishes footage of apparent new 'suicide drones' launched against #Israel
While the canard design of #Hamas 'Shihab' (left) draws comparison with #Iran Ababil-2 (top right) and #Houthi Qasef-1/2 (bottom right), it is clearly a more compact unique design
Interesting that #Hamas 'Shihab' is shown using two different types of engine.
