Britain resumes sales of arms to Saudi Arabia


In a written statement, the trade secretary, Liz Truss, said sales would restart after an official review concluded there had been only “isolated incidents” of airstrikes in Yemen that breached humanitarian law.

Truss said the undertaking given by the government after the court defeat last June “falls away”. The government had undertaken not to grant any new licences to export arms or military equipment to Saudi Arabia for possible use in Yemen.

As a result, Truss said, “the government will now begin the process of clearing the backlog of licence applications for Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners that has built up since 20 June last year”.

Arms trade campaigners said the decision was “disgraceful and morally bankrupt” and they were considering a legal challenge.

Andrew Smith, of Campaign Against Arms Trade, said: “The Saudi-led bombardment of Yemen has created the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, and the government itself admits tha... Show more...
 
Israel Awaits US Authorization to Annex West Bank

https://www.globalresearch.ca/israel-awaits-us-authorization-annex-west-bank/5717650

Before July 1, the scenario showed a somewhat uncomfortable situation for Israel. The country saw itself alone in its #annexation project, relying exclusively on American support. For its part, Washington is dealing with a devastating #pandemic and a serious #political, social and #economic crisis. The worst-case scenario for the US now would be the involvement in another #war. If Israel continued with its plans, it could trigger a situation of intense regional conflict, where the lack of external support could lead to a serious defeat for the #Zionist State.

Corruption is the Cancer that destroys Society through Governments


I do a lot of content consumption on the #Twitter, and only rarely reshare it in the #Fediverse, but this one I am.

Rout in world stock markets worst since 2008, with airlines and junk bonds also plunging

Saudi Arabia’s shock decision to increase crude production from next month after falling out with Russia over how to deal with the impact of coronavirus on demand for oil, prompted the price of oil to crash on world markets on Monday.

That plunge, together with the lockdown in Italy and what stock market professionals believe is an inadequate response to the coronavirus threat from the US, prompted a worldwide stock market rout on a scale unseen since the global financial crisis of 2008.

In historic move, Saudi Arabia suspends travel for pilgrimages to Islam’s holiest sites
Saudi Arabia has suspended pilgrimages to Mecca and Medina for people outside the country over novel coronavirus fears. The kingdom, which bills itself as the custodian of Islam’s two holiest sites, will open religious rituals to residents and nationals only.

In recent years, diplomatic rifts in the region restricted travel for pilgrims from Qatar and Iran, prompting an outcry. But a wholesale temporary ban on foreign visits to the holy sites is a first in living memory....
