  • Marwan Bishara
    Marwan Bishara “The thing about imperial powers like the UK and the US is that they don't give a damn about the action, in this case, the occupation. They care for the actor, and the actor is an ally, Israel. That's why this court is important, because this court does not see actors. It doesn't care about the identity of the actor, it only cares about the nature of the act. And in this case, it's 75 years of dispossession, 56 years of occupation. The UK and the US don't want you to know the legal opinion of this question, because what they care about is the cynical calculus of geopolitics.” 13 hours ago
  • Josep Borrell
    Josep Borrell “Today, we are further tightening the restrictive measures against Russia's military and defence sector. We remain united in our determination to dent Russia's war machine and help Ukraine win its legitimate fight for self-defence.” 13 hours ago

“Hezbollah had in particular helped the Houthis to build their naval capabilities. These include seven naval bases and 30 control posts along Yemen's coast that have radar and electro-optical directors for better control of missile launches. It's a massive coastal defense line for detection, and they're also using AIS (ship tracking) systems, and also intelligence from Iran. Among the unused weapons in the Houthis arsenal are Iranian-made Sadaf floating mines. While such munitions are relatively unsophisticated and easy to deploy, their impact on merchant shipping would be considerable if they were used in the Red Sea.”
