The difference in arms spending between Armenia and Azerbaijan speaks eloquently: while Armenia invested some $634 million in 2020, Azerbaijan virtually tripled that figure by 2.238 million. Despite the ceasefire signed on November 9, 2020, Bayraktar drones continue their incursions into the territory of Karabakh, as occurred on March 25 in Parukh when three Armenian soldiers were killed. In turn, this would raise the question of whether Turkish soldiers (military drone operators) have also participated in the wars in Karabakh and the Ukraine. This conjuncture, and the presence of Bayraktar drones, may well cause an escalation of the conflict between these two African countries. The trade in armed Turkish drones has drawn widespread attention in, and criticism by, the international community.

It is to be recalled that PM Abiy launched this annual initiative in the first year of his premiership four years ago.

This year, PM Abiy is utilizing the proceeds of sale of his book ‘Ye Medemer Menged’ to finance the construction of housing units for up to 23 individuals in the Aware area in the capital, according to Office of the Prime Minister. “As we launch the annual housing renovations program for the impoverished, I call upon individuals, businesses and government institutions to join the annual effort of providing decent and humane living conditions for the many around us before the onset of the rainy season,” PM Abiy said.

Photo Credit: Gershon Elinson/Flash90The Ministerial Legislation Committee on Sunday approved a bill regulating the use of facial recognition cameras in public spaces. Under the bill, the defense establishment would have access to information captured by the cameras and would be able to use it without a court order. The bill aims “to regulate aspects of the installation and use by the Israel Police of special photographic systems in the public space. The glaring problem with the bill is its reliance on the police in guaranteeing the facial recognition data won’t be misused. The other groups the police would be using these cameras on intensively are demonstrators, right-wingers, left-wingers, Haredim, Arabs, and knitted yarmulkes.
