#Yemen :Member of the negotiating delegation of the Sanaa government, Abdul-Malik Al-Ajri, today mocked the statements of the puppet government of the Saudi coalition about its "sovereign legal status" against the background of its acquiescence to international

passports from Sanaa on the sovereign legal position of their government!"

Al-Ajri added: "Give us one Yemeni who claims that he had a role in choosing Al-Alimi as your president."

He continued, addressing the puppet government: "Was it not the first thing that you feared

I have been thinking about samosas for the last week & here is a thread about them. For starters the Samosa comes from West Asia and was originally meat wrapped in a dough cone and fried - the sambusak! The only truly veg versions are all Indian! #Samosa #Sambusak #PunjabiSamosa
I grew up in Mumbai eating what is now known as the Parsi/Bohri Samosa and which I simply knew as a Samosa. Lightly spiced lamb mince cooked with onions, green chillies and corriander, stuffed into a triangular pocket made from flat precooked sheets of samosa patti. #Samosa
These were then slowly fried in hot (not too hot) oil till golded brown & served with a typically Parsi Green chutney made with coconut, mint, corriander, peppercorns, green chutney & lime juice. These treats were rare and cherished! #Samosa

Propongo un mio thread, auspicando di spiegare a chi legge, ma soprattutto a chi ancora se lo chiede, perchè #UE e #NATO stiano aiutando #Ucraina️

Spero in un vs cortese Rtweet [1diN]
Da qualche tempo corre — in Italia ma non solo — l’idea che nella vicenda ucraina non sia chiaro quale sia l’end-game, l’obiettivo finale, di #Zelensky. E, subito dopo, degli americani.
(cit Danilo #Taino, @Corriere)
Lo sostengono esperti di politica internazionale, ambasciatori, politici, sovranisti nostrani...
Dicono che l'obiettivo di #Kiev e della #Nato non sia chiaro.
E' strano che l'obiettivo di #Zelensky non sia chiaro: non è invadere la #Russia, non è #Mosca: è difendersi

In the 🇩🇪 discourse on sending heavy arms to 🇺🇦, political theorist Jürgen #Habermas weighed in through an article in the Süddeutsche today. A quick🧵with a summary and some thoughts in English, for my non-German-speaking colleagues. Original article here:…
Habermas begins that 77yrs after WWII and somewhat threatened peace, war returned to our doorstep unleashed by 🇷🇺. The war dominates our media in an unprecedented way, and the ‘calculated publicity of an unpredictable war‘ may impress the older gen more than media-native young 1/
Habermas argues that with drastic sanctions against 🇷🇺, 🇩🇪 became party to the war. That is why every military step should consider if it constitutes formal entry/participation in the war by Putin’s definition. As such, there is no space for ‘risky gambling’ in decision-making 2/

Study centers loyal to the Qatari government revealed, on Wednesday, the details of the coalition’s announcement of a new presidential council in #Yemen.

The Doha Institute for Research and Political Studies said, in a report, that the new coalition council is a body
shared by #Emirati and #Saudi influence in #Yemen, stressing that Hadi did not resign from his position, but was overthrown by force.

The report made it clear that the Presidential Council is not considered legitimate, noting that "the Saudi-Emirati move undermines the
internationally recognized "legitimacy."

The Qatari Center pointed out that the coalition did not provide sufficient support to the Hadi government in the face of the forces of Sanaa, nor in the face of the Transitional Council, which exercises great influence in #Aden,

THREAD: #Rwanda, is it the best choice?

As we have all had had time to mull over the extraordinary revelations from last week, we thought it might be now a good time to dissect through some of the issues
This thread will focus on Rwanda in relation to the #PritiPatel deal. 1/
Most of you will have heard of #Rwanda from "Hotel Rwanda" a film that tells a bit about the Genocide that happened in the country in 1994 - in 100 days between April-July - >800,000 Tutsi people were killed in a national Genocide.
Rwanda has been rebuilding itself ever since. 2/
Why is it important that we dissect this deal from the #Rwanda angle?

Well put simply - its because the British gov #BorisJohnson #PritiPatel are deliberately not telling you, if they did, most Britons would be appalled & disgusted at how bad the scheme is for RW & refugees. 3/

Today is the 7th anniversary of the devastating Faj Attan bombing in #Yemen's capital Sana'a.

25 people died in an explosion of such grand magnitude locals initially believed it was small nuclear bomb.

Here's another angle of the explosion. It is today believed that the US-backed & supported Saudi Coalition struck an arms depot.
"Here comes the sound, cover your ears!" a father can be heard telling his son as the explosion occurs. In the background you can hear active anti-air fire going off as the Yemeni army tries to intercept & shoot down Saudi airplanes.

Despite UN truce, Saudi blockade still prevents patients from traveling for medical treatment

Yemeni Minister of Public Health and Population, Dr. Taha al-Mutawakel, has said on Monday that not a single patient has traveled via Sana’a International Airport yet,
despite the passage of two weeks of the UN-declared armistice.

The Health Minister added that is because “the Saudi-led coalition continues to delay the opening of Sana’a International Airport.”

He indicated that 525 hospitals and health centers were directly destroyed
during the years of war and siege.

“Through the siege, the coalition aims to disrupt the provision of medical services in hospitals and medical centers that remain operating under war conditions,” the health minister said.

He explained that 98% of the quality devices of

My fifth paper for @GI_TOC has just gone live!

Over eight months, we catalogued 425 weapons and over 3,200 rounds of ammunition in 13 illicit markets across #Somalia.

The research showed that assault rifles were priced approx. $90 higher in southern Somalia than in the north.

The pricing data constitutes tentative corroborating evidence of a north-south illicit supply chain, with weapons becoming more expensive the further south they travel. Image
Over 60% of documented weapons were of apparent #Chinese manufacture, with an additional ~20% manufactured in #Russia (Soviet Union). Image

The @nytimes is quoting Nadwa Dawsari in their latest peace on #Yemen as if she was some sort of truth oracle.

She once claimed that the Ansarallah had "manufactured" ISIS to have a pretext for waging war in Albaydha and Marib. Image
@nytimes She literally said that unironically and the New York Times is quoting her as an expert.
@nytimes But of course the one group most persecuted by ISIS crimes would manufacture ISIS and strategically place them around Baydha & Marib as board game bricks for a quick photo op and some political legitimacy.
