Partis aux #Emirats pour surveiller des entreprises pétrolières, des Soudanais se sont retrouvés finalement forcés d'aller se battre sur le front #Yéménite contre les #Houthis 💣🩸
Explications en plus de mon enquête de ce jour dans @LEXPRESS mag.

1) Ibrahim, comme bcp de jeunes Soudanais est sans emploi. Les grandes manifestations de 2019 n'ont pas encore résolu tous les maux sociaux et économiques du pays. Alors, quand on l'informe que des agences proposent des postes de sécurité aux #UAE, il saisit l'opportunité.
2) Amanda's Agency ou encore Princess's Office décrivent la mission : surveiller des installations pétrolières émiraties avec une formation de 3 mois dans un camp à Abu Dhabi. Nourriture et logement pris en charge et paie de 1840 AED (500 dollar) par mois.

1) reading into #Houthis ceasefire plan, it is majorly between Houthis & the coalition and no implicit mention to the ligitimate government of Yemen. Although it says ceasefire in all fronts in #Yemen, it only specified outside attacks on Yemen [by coalition] & attacks on KSA.
2) it refers to a freeze of hostilities by all “forces” without specifying which forces. Is it limited to coalition and Houthis as main parties to the proposed agreement? Not clear.
3) it neutralize coalition by proposing lifting #Yemen from under chapter seven and calling for not siding with a military party against each other.

#YEMEN
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.

On both sides of the divide, #Yemen has stepped up measures to contain and mitigate against coronavirus should it appear, including screening and tracking arrivals.

In #Sanaa, a rush on face masks as awareness about the disease increases has

Breaking: Reports that #King #Salman of #Saudi_arabia Arabia has died (still unconfirmed), which may explain Crown Prince’s arrests of other royal family members. If true, will pave way for a very different-looking Saudi Arabia.
2)King #Salman ruled since 2015. His son, crown prince Mohammad bin Salman, has already been the de facto ruler of #Saudia_Arabia for years & holds immense power. He is loved by younger citizens but feared by fellow royals. Expect to see resistance by other royal family members
3) MBS is considered a tyrant by many, crushing those who oppose him, as seen with the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi (which he was behind). He has also leaned hard into a deadly military campaign against the #Houthis in #Yemen, fueling a devastating humanitarian disaster.

1/ This week @UniofOxford we explored the origins of Shīʿism. One of the most interesting but little known forms is Zaydism, which began with the revolt of Zayd ibn ʿAlī in 740. Read on for more about this unique Zaydī coin and what it says about the doctrine of the Zaydī imamate
2/ Zaydīs believed that the imam had to be a descendant of ʿAlī through his sons al-Ḥasan or al-Ḥusayn. Among Shīʿīs, they were unique for also believing that the imam proved himself by his ability to lead a revolt (khurūj) against an unjust power
3/ This coin belongs to al-Ḥasan ibn Zayd, the founder of the Zaydī state of the mountains of Northern #Iran in 864. Zaydism also took root in #Yemen in 897. It eventually disappeared in Iran but survives to this day in Yemen (e.g., the #Houthis are Zaydī Shīʿīs)

[THREAD] On the second load of imagery from the #Houthis about their attack against Saudi/Saudi-backed forces.

Lots more interesting things, pretty much in the same vein as previously. (Note the Iranian RPG launcher below)

1/
Lots more capture, including vehicles. I will focus on weapons though.

- Belarusian "Utes" NSV HMG
- Bulgarian PG-7VT Tandem Charge RPG warheads
- AKs of various stripes- Zastava M02E1 etc.
- Multiple Likely Saudi F2000 + GL, vehicle-mount FN MAG

2/
More captures:

- Tripod-mounted Browning M2 (Multiple of these across different positions)
- H&K MG4, this one isn't seen too often.

These captures did seem like they were from Saudi forces.

A #Tehran insider says the strategy is to revive #Iran nuclear program until the West returns to #JCPOA or creates a new deal. Until that happens, the Islamic Republic is simultaneously using a few other ingredients to its strategy. /1
Threat of retaliation against immediate neighbors | #Gulf states like #KSA #UAE #Kuwait #Bahrain have received ample warnings they will be hit through missiles or sabotage if #Iran is attacked directly or if sanctions are prolonged.
#Iran is appeasing #Turkey through concessions in #Syria #Iraq & on #Kurds. #Pakistan has received signals #Balochistan/#Karachi are targets if #Islamabad sides with #USA or with #Gulf states. (Apr attack, 14 soldiers hit, deep attack; sea-borne hit on #Gwadar)

MBS’s dress was blown up by Houthi drones and is on fire.
#MohammedBinsalman , #yemen, #Houthis
Iranian FM, Javad Zarif :

Arab blood vs. Arab oil / A primer on U.S. policy:
- 4 yrs of indiscriminate bombardment of Yemen
- 100,000 dead Yemenis
- 20M malnourished Yemenis
- 2.3M cholera cases
= carte blance for culprits.
- Retaliatory Yemeni strike on
oil storage tanks
= unacceptable "act of war”

US immediately blamed Iran.
With no proofs.
Russia trolled US and asked for an independent international investigation .
That the US and Saudi didn't agree to such speaks loudly about where the truth lies.

17 points of impact. No Drones or missiles were detected/intercepted. Saudis & Americans still at loss as to where the attack was launched from.
#KSA seriously needs to shop elsewhere & replace the Patriot or reinforce it with a web of radar operated AA guns like the Oerlikon.
A source familiar with #Aramco situation told us earlier today that it was a “swarm attack”, a mix of > 20 drones and missiles, at least half of which were "suicide" drones.
#USA & #KSA, he said, are 'certain' that attack was launched from #Iraq but 'smoking gun still missing'
They are also 'fairly certain' that #IRGC was behind the operation because, even though the missiles used were identical to those of the #Houthis, an inspection of the debris found in the desert revealed a 'couple of new updates' and a 'distinctly better craftsmanship'

1) Houthis claim sophisticated drone bombing on Saudi-owned Aramco oil facilities in Abqaiq & Khurais (the former being Aramco’s largest processing plant), causing major damage. These facilities are key components of Saudi economy, & the effects of this attack will not be small.
2) Such an attack on #SaudiArabia’s economic bloodline by the #Iran-backed rebels has potential to turn these two countries’ already-deadly proxy war in #Yemen into something much larger while also making significant ripples on the global economy.
3) Houthi spokesman Yahya Saree says attack “one of the largest executed by our forces” in #SaudiArabia, claiming it came after “thorough intelligence and monitoring” as well as coordination with locals, threatening: “upcoming operations will expand more” ent.siteintelgroup.com/Energy-Critica…

Something HEAVY in Saudi Arabia.
Explosions and firing reported across Buqayq (Abqaiq) in #SaudiArabia

Facilities of #ARAMCO have seen explosions.

NOT SURE THIS IS RELATED...BUT...

Saudi Aramco is gearing up for what could be the largest IPO ever in the world.

businessinsider.sg/10-largest-ipo…
The exact reasons and perpetrators of these incidents are not yet known.

There could be multiple reasons and causes for this.

Hearing from Sources in #Saudi that the military obviously is on a very high alert.

The southern military bases are going through readiness checks.

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.

#Yemen:
#Houthis attacked , the largest attack ever since the beginning of the Saudi war on Yemen, with 10 armed drone#SaudiArabia Aramco al-Shaybah oil field and station, with 1 million barrel of oil storage capacity, 10 km south of the border to #AbuDhabi, a message to the #UAE
This is the new #Yemen Rule of Engagement, exposing armed drones capable of hitting targets over 1000 km away from Yemen and in #SaudiArabia land. It is also telling #Abudhabi: we can hit you any time if you don't seek political negotiation in Yemen.

If #Yemen has this kind of armed drones, all #Iran allies have the same in #Lebanon, #Syria, #Iraq and #Palestine.

Iran's enemies are powerful but Iran and its allies are enjoying powerful means to fight back. The US and allies's exclusivity is over.

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.
