Sigue el ciclo #EnsillArte, donde hablaremos de la #silla como objeto del #arte, para el #TwitterCultural.

Esta #escultura en forma de silla gigante y coja la podéis ver en #Ginebra, #Suiza.

Ha ayudado a salvar millones de vidas y a ganar un #NobelPrize de la Paz.

Te cuento⬇️
Pues sí, le falta una pata, claramente arrancada con violencia, astillada, destruida...

Una silla a la que le falta una pata está "handicapeada", algo le ha pasado...

Sólo decir que, a pesar de las apariencias, no es una silla rota: es un ser humano herido.

Al mirar la silla rota deberíamos ver algo así.

1. New UN report on AQ and IS is out, here are the most interesting tidbits in my opinion: Like this paragraph saying that several member states noted IS-#Somalia's Al-Karrar office sending $25k a month to IS-Khorasan via crypto…
2. Obligatory mention that everyone's least surprising candidate to succeed Zawahiri is indeed Sayf al-Adl and AQ's silence is meant to protect the Taliban
3. Buried in here but yet should be WAY more significant is the assertion that veteran AQ leader Abu Ikhlas al-Masri, captured in Kunar #Afghanistan in 2010 and freed during the Taliban takeover in 2021, is now leading an AQ unit in Kunar. AQ presence in Afghan is very undersold

Two weeks after forces in Puntland killed IS-Somalia's head of ops, Abu-Albara Al Amani of Ethiopia, US forces conduct a rare raid in #Somalia targeting Bilal al-Sudani, a top Islamic State figure seen as a key facilitator for ISIS's global network. 🧵
Bilal al-Sudani, aka Suhayl Salim Abd el-Rahman of #Sudan, was designated under the US #Somalia sanctions program in 2012 for facilitating the travel & financing of foreign fighters for #AlShabaab since 2007. He later joined the IS splinter faction.…
Al-Sudani was linked to a South Africa-based ISIS facilitator, Abdella Hussein Abadigga, that was designated for sanctions in early 2022.…

Attack/threat "most likely to occur in the #UnitedStates from lone actors...motivated by a range of ideologies" from #ISIS #alQaida to racism & white supremacy, sometimes a combination, per NCTC's Abizaid

Time for a🧵on the EU's #CBAM (Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism). Today, EU institutions reached an agreement on the CBAM. It will enter into force on 1 October 2023. What does this mean for #Africa?…
1) What is the logic behind the CBAM? The EU introduced ambitious decarbonization measures for its industry=> risk of carbon leakage (companies shifting production to more tolerant jurisdictions) => industrial exodus from EU with major socio-economic impact & no climate impact.
But what does the evidence say about this assumption? The European Commission's own assessment of the impact of the CBAM is not conclusive but theorizes that more ambition may result in more carbon leakage.…

1/18.📜NEW BLOG: We have seen quite a few pledges that have been framed as “finance for #LossAndDamage”. But are they really? This blog provides an overview of all the pledges thus far at #COP27 in chronological order.

🔗Read it here:… Image
2/18. On the 20th of September, #Denmark🇩🇰 pledged €13m for #LossAndDamage, a package which includes finance for the #GlobalShield Against Climate Risk, support for CSOs to do projects on the ground, and some other money that is yet to be allocated for a specific use.
3/18. Crucially, all of this money is new and on top of #Denmark’s 🇩🇰 0.7% commitment to ODA, therefore not a diversion of cash from other vital #ClimateFinance projects.

1. Time for a status update on #IS.

We’ve been collecting and analysing #IS comms and chatter continuously for the last few years.

This is what the short- (50-day) and long-term (200-day) rolling averages look like for #IS attacks as of 10 October 2022.
2. In #Syria, after a three-fold decline across 2020/21, #IS’s reported activities have been hovering at roughly the same level since last summer.

Note that there was a fleeting surge after the #Ghwayran prison-break, but nothing sustained.

See tweet #12 for caveat.
3. In #Iraq, #IS’s network is seemingly in a similar place.

These days, less than half as many attacks are being reported on average compared with this time in 2020 and 2021.

See tweet #12 for caveat.

1. In his latest statement, #IS spokesman Abu ‘Umar al-Muhajir spoke at length about #IS’s targeting of Christian communities in #Africa.

This continent-wide campaign is likely to intensify across #Mozambique, #DRC, and #Nigeria in the next few months, peaking in December.
2. As part of this, Muhajir spoke about recent developments in #Mozambique.

September has seen #IS’s cells penetrating further south there than ever before, razing "Christian villages" to the ground as they go.

L: #IS-related violence in 2021
R: #IS-related violence in 2022
3. At the beginning of this month, about 20 #IS fighters from #CaboDelgado crossed the #Lurio river and entered #Nampula province.

Up until that point, #Nampula state had seen just one attack claimed by #IS. As of today, that number is at eight and counting.

On Wednesday, reporter Firas Hatoum revealed that the Rhosus, which carried the #AmmoniumNitrate from Georgia to the #BeirutPort, was only one of several similar ships.
After tracing the journey of all the ships that left Georgia between 2012 and 2014, four were found to have already docked in #Beirut, #Tripoli and #Tartus.

According to Hatoum's investigative report aired on Al-Jadeed, the four ships are part of the #Odessa Network,
a group of businessmen, companies and ships accused of transporting arms and war cargo from #Russia and Ukraine to the #AssadRegime in Syria since 2011.
