UN: Yemen violence worsening, more access to north needed

August 19, 2017 Middle East Monitor 0

Top United Nations officials on Friday warned violence in Yemen was worsening and greater access was needed to the Houthi rebel-held north, particularly through the key Red Sea port of Hodeidah. UN aid chief Stephen O’Brien slammed Yemen’s government and a Saudi-led military coalition for “unilaterally denying or excessively delaying entry to vessels carrying essential cargo” to the port. “It is simply wrong to insist these cargoes go to Aden, not Hodeidah,” O’Brien told the UN Security Council, appealing for countries to back a UN mechanism that started inspecting commercial shipments to rebel-held ports in May last year. The United Nations has worked to avert attacks on Hodeidah port, where around 80 percent of Yemen’s food imports arrive. The Saudi-led […]

Israeli flag will be raised in independent Kurdistan, claims prominent Likud member

A prominent figure within Israel’s far-right Likud Party, Ariel Polstein, has said that the Kurds will never forget how the Zionist state has supported them, with the result that when an independent Kurdistan raises the Israeli flag, the two countries will become allies in the true sense of the word. The lawyer is also a regular writer for the newspaper Israel Hayom, and is close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He called for the documenting of what he called the historical friendship between the Kurds and Israel as well as the need to promote it, Al-Jazeera has reported. Polstein pointed out that the relationship between Israel and a Kurdish state is of great importance. He stressed that Israel has helped […]

KARACHI: Mourners on Saturday attended a state funeral for Ruth Pfau, a German physician and nun who earned international acclaim as “Pakistan’s Mother Theresa” by devoting her life to the eradication of leprosy in the Muslim-majority nation.
Pfau died on Aug. 10 at age 87 in the southern port city of Karachi. State-run television broadcast live footage of her casket being carried by a military guard at the city’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral. She was to be buried at a nearby cemetery later Saturday.
Pakistani politicians, military officials, members of civil society and hundreds of supporters attended the service and paid tribute to her.
Martha Fernando, who worked with Pfau at her Marie Adelaide Leprosy Center, said the German physician’s death was a great loss to humanity. “There is no one like her and there won’t be any replacement to her. We pray to God to send people like her again to this world so that they could continue serving people,” she said.
Pakistan suffered high rates of leprosy up until the mid-1990s. Pfau played a key role in efforts to bring the disease under control.

Civilians in Yemen have been targeted, reveal leaked emails

August 19, 2017 Middle East Monitor 0

A new set of leaked emails sent by the UAE ambassador in Washington, Yousef Al-Otaiba, have revealed that the Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen has targeted civilian sites, and that such attacks are damaging his country’s image in America. In an email sent to officials in the government of the UAE two years ago, Al-Otaiba expressed his concern about the continued targeting of civilians in the war-torn country and its repercussions on the Gulf state’s relationship with Washington, describing the situation as a nightmare. At the time, he explained, the Obama administration was still showing its support reluctantly and pointed out that the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen was damaging the reputation of the United States and thus putting the […]

MOSCOW: A knife attacker stabbed eight people on the street in Russia’s far northern city of Surgut before being shot by police, investigators said Saturday.
The male attacker “carried out attacks on passers-by, causing stab wounds to eight” while “moving along central streets of the city” at around 11:20 am local time (0620 GMT) said Russia’s Investigative Committee, which probes major crimes.
It said that armed police then arrived and used their weapons on the attacker and “liquidated” him.
The incident took place in a city some 2,100 kilometres (1,330 miles) northeast of Moscow in the oil-rich Khanty-Mansi region.
Two of those stabbed are in a serious condition while five more are in a stable condition, the government of the Khanty-Mansi region said in a statement, calling the attacker so far “unidentified.”
It called for calm over the incident, saying that “in the interests of public calm and also of the investigation, citizens and media are recommended to use reliable information in assessing the situation until all the circumstances are established.”

The consequences of passing the e-crimes law

Only a month after Mahmoud Abbas ratified the e-crimes law, which he did without consulting the Palestine Legislative Council or even civil society organisations and journalists’ syndicate, the first to suffer were a large group of journalists in the West Bank, who work for a variety of channels and news websites. They all have one thing in common; they are independent and have clear agendas with a bias towards national issues, mainly resistance; they are not mouthpieces for the Palestinian Authority applauding its actions without question. The same security services that arrested the journalists fabricated the charges against them. These charges appear to be designed by the Israeli domestic intelligence agency, Shin Bet, and not by a Palestinian court. Working […]
