It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

#Iran escalating tension policy persists in the region!
The Islamic Republic, in the wake of its abnormal behavior, has deployed heavy_weapons to three Arab states in the #Middle_East ❗️The regime continues its malicious behavior in the neighboring countries.
A few months ago, a journalist who fled #Iran informed us: The Islamic Republic and in particular the #Revolutionary_Guards had sent heavy weaponries to several Arab countries to counter, what they call ‘American Threats’, & #US forces in the event of a possible Iran/US conflict
Months ago, Bahraini Foreign Minister, Khalid bin Ahmed al-Khalifa confirmed the revelation, stating: “#Iran has secretly transferred weapons and explosives to #Bahrain. These weapons were enough to destroy half of the capital city #Manama❗️

Thread on oil & Gas in #Oman
1-With the passing of Sultan Qaboos on Friday and the choice of Sultan Haitham as the new leader of Oman, Oman #oil policy is expected to remain the same with the aim of increasing oil and gas production within OPEC+ framework
2-Oman producers about to 1 mb/d of crude & condensates. It is also an LNG exporter. Oman is among the very few countries in the world that announces its production figures at the end of every month. Kudos to Dr. Mohammed Al Rumhi, Minister of Oil and Gas since 1997. @Mog_Oman
3-Dr Al Rumhi is also the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) and Chairman of @OmanLNG
He is also a media darling, especially at the JMMC & OPEC+ meetings. Just ask OPEC journalists.

Thread on the return of #oil production in the #NeutralZone between #SaudiArabia and #Kuwait

The thread discusses the impact on the oil market with some historical perspective and some technical issues

1- "Neutral Zone" Was established in 1922 between Saudi Arabia and Kuwait
2- In 1922, a border agreement was reached after 6 days of intense negotiation between Abdulaziz, Sultan of Najd (later king of KSA), a British representative of Kuwait, another British representing Britain in charge of Gulf region &a representative of King Faisal of the of Iraq
3-However, they could not agree on certain areas where Bedouin tribes move back and forth seasonally. Negotiators agreed to create two shared zones: one between Saudi Arabia and Kuwait and another between Saudi Arabia and Iraq, on the hope that issues will be resolved later.

[Thread] 1/ This thread is on a bizarre hashtag in Kuwait. Thanks for the help of @ALYOUSEF94 and @courtneyfreer for highlighting some unusual trends and steering me on certain aspects of Kuwaiti politics. I analysed the hashtag #السكران_يدعو_السكارى_للاراده , which translates as
'the drunk calls the drunks to will/freedom square'. The 'drunk' is a reference to former Kuwait Saleh al Mulla ( @SalehAlmulla ) and 'drunks' presumably to those who support him. Thus one can reasonably assume that those behind the hashtag either 1) don't like al Mulla
@SalehAlmulla 3/ 2) don't want protests 3) both. Possibly candidates for one, according to @courtneyfreer could be the Ikhwan or pro-gov Shia Islamists, or presumably, the government themselves. Anyway, I won't get bogged down in who is behind it. Onto the data...

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)

#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
