Likewise. Keep up the great work! Us reporters (especially ones with heads buried in the minutiae of one small corner of the world) and their stories are nothing without great editors.

Cant stop reading about & who got shot while trying to deliver assistance to isolated areas in . These local youth are the backbone of resilience & deserve that we react the same way we would to an international aid worker.

For the last four years, we have lost neighbors, friends, colleagues, family members and strangers in . For four years, constant news of loved ones hurt or killed. Many people have become numb to such news. Please, do not normalize this. This will never be normal.

Shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the death of lawyer and human rights activist, Reham al-Badr, in apparent Houthi gunfire. Last time I saw Reham in Taiz we spent hours chatting politics well into the night. A huge loss for Yemen.

No "white smoke" from negotiations as yet. Maashik presidential compound still surrounded by UAE-backed STC-loyal fighters. Will truce hold or fighting renew if negotiations fail...all hangs in the balance for now.

We sued to obtain the legal and factual basis for this tragic raid and the Trump admin's assessment of civilian harm. In response, the CIA is making absurd secrecy claims about its role

"That kind of stuff"? That they're only motivated by money? That it's not their job to give victims of US military ops a voice? That a piece with deep analysis of otherwise superficially reported story lacks analysis? That USG is reliable & trustworthy? Don't worry, I hear you.
