Syria’s Assad: implementing ceasefire within a week ‘unlikely’

16 Feb 2016  |  albawaba.com
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad expressed skepticism about the implementation of a temporary ceasefire agreed upon by world powers, stating that a ceasefire does not equate to the cessation of weapon use and doubted any group's ability to secure conditions within a week. Despite the ceasefire agreement in Munich, Syrian army offensives and Russian airstrikes have persisted. Assad outlined that a ceasefire would involve stopping terrorists from strengthening positions and that no movement of weapons, equipment, or terrorists would be allowed. He also reiterated that his government is not planning to work towards a power transition in Syria, insisting that any political transition must adhere to the current Syrian constitution.

Yemenis battle water shortages using an unlikely resource: fog

14 Feb 2016  |  albawaba.com
Yemen, facing a civil conflict and a blockade on imports, is experiencing severe water shortages. With an annual rainfall of only 900 cubic meters, Yemen falls short of its water needs by 25 percent. However, Yemenis are utilizing fog as a resource by using mesh screens to condense and collect water from the air. A project managed by the UNDP and Yemen's National Foundation for Watershed Management installed 200 screens in the Manakha Mount area, and the local community now harvests over 40 liters of water per screen each day. These fog condensing screens, costing $15 each, offer an affordable solution to improve living conditions.

Academics worldwide have called for an independent investigation, citing increased abuses by Egyptian security forces. Regeni's funeral is set in his hometown of Fiumicello, attended by friends from around the globe.

Erdogan referenced past actions where Turkey stopped refugees at the gates to Europe and suggested that Turkey could 'open the gates' for refugees to enter Europe. The EU and Turkey had previously reached a deal for the EU to provide $3.2 billion in support for refugees in Turkey in exchange for Turkey halting the refugee flow to Europe.

Jordanian Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour has warned that without significant foreign aid and easier access to European markets, Jordan will struggle to continue accepting Syrian refugees. During a visit to Azraq refugee camp, he highlighted the upcoming Syria conference seeking $9 billion in pledges.
