Just published on our @hrw's website, some thoughts from me trying to make sense of the awful recent human rights abuses in Yemen: Beyond the headlines, civilians in Yemen have been caught between hammer and anvil for years. hrw.org/news/2022/02/02/yeme…

Can’t stress enough the significance of lifting closure of Sana’a airport. This proves if there’s political will, there’s a way. Now time to lift siege on Taiz! “First flight in years takes off from Yemen's capital, Sanaa (from @AP)” apnews.com/article/b6961b38f…

First commercial flight operated from Sana’a airport in over six years took off today, heading towards #Amman as part of UN-brokered truce. People are looking forward to see roads to under siege #Taiz reopened. Yemen

@CBCNews Mohammed Al-Hakimi, the founder of Yemeni environmental group Holm Akhdar "There's two choices: either a global movement and a global support for this, or..we wait for catastrophe and we wait for the oil spill," he said. "And then, we can't fix what's broken." #FSOsafer
A tanker off the coast of Yemen threatens to spill more than four times the oil of the Exxon Valdez — and cause major disruption to global shipping — if an emergency salvage mission fails. cbc.ca/1.6447260

Shireen Abu Akleh was an iconic and trailblazing reporter, renowned in the Arabic-speaking world. We spoke to several of her colleagues and friends on the day she was shot dead by Israeli forces.

The killing of Shireen Abu Akleh is a devastating loss. Shireen's life's work was telling stories of Palestinians living under Israeli apartheid. Rest in power Shireen.
Replying to @AJEnglish
Friends and colleagues described Shireen Abu Akleh as a brave and kind reporter with an “infectious laugh” who gave voice to the struggles of Palestinians over a career spanning nearly three decades aje.io/w5dbyf

The impact of an oil spill in the Red Sea from #FSOSafer in the water could be far wider than anticipated, about 850,000 tonnes of fish stocks that exist in Yemen’s waters in the Red Sea, Bab El Mandab & Gulf of Aden would be destroyed. #SalvageTheSAFER #HolmAkhdar #YemenCantWait

We have less than a week to prevent a disaster. The #FSOSafer tanker (1.1 million barrels of oil) has been left unattended off the coast of #Yemen. It could break or explode at any moment. Tell world governments that the world is watching 👉 greenpeace.org/international…

Always fascinates me that I always remember when it’s Xmas to greet western friends with Xmas greetings but most of them never bother to greet me with Eid greetings when it’s Eid 🤔 #EidMubarak
