The PMOI/MEK operates inside Iran taking great risks to expose Iran’s nuclear weapons program, Gobadi said. Without the PMOI/MEK resistance, Gobadi said, the world would never have known the true depth of Iran’s nuclear weapons program and how far it had advanced towards building a nuclear weapon. “And that includes tens of thousands of women, which is an amazing aspect of our resistance in Iran. Hundreds of thousands of others have been imprisoned and severely tortured.”Gobadi cited many incidents of resistance inside Iran. In January, the resistance disrupted 25 of the Iran regime’s television radio channels broadcasting chants of “Death to Khamenei and “Hail to Rajavi” — who is the leader of the resistance.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) says it has encountered a funding shortfall in meeting the needs of refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) in conflict-hit northern Ethiopia. “A full-scale humanitarian and protection crisis continues to unfold in and around Ethiopia’s Tigray, Amhara and Afar regions since armed conflict broke out in early November 2020,” the UNHCR said in its northern Ethiopia situation update issued late Thursday. Over 1.1 million IDPs, refugees, returnees, and affected populations benefitted from UNHCR and partners’ protection services since January 2022 in northern Ethiopia, it was noted. While ensuring access to basic services, UNHCR also provided 142,886 displaced individuals with core relief items in Ethiopia’s northern Afar, Amhara and Tigray regions since January 2022. The humanitarian situation across northern Ethiopia is “deeply concerning”, with 2.6 million IDPs, over 240,000 returnees and 97,421 refugees and asylum-seekers across the three affected regions, it said.

In a bid to protect coastal communities from climate change and encourage investment, African nations are increasingly turning to mangrove restoration projects, with Mozambique becoming the latest addition to the growing list of countries with large scale mangrove initiatives. Known as blue carbon, carbon captured by these ecosystems can sequester, or remove, carbon dioxide from the atmosphere at a faster rate than forests, despite being smaller in size. It was dubbed the "world's first blue carbon project" and earned the community of just 6,000 global fame, accolades, carbon cash and greater living standards. In Senegal, 79 million replanted mangrove trees are projected to store 500,000 tons of carbon over the next 20 years. Egypt is planning its mangrove restoration project ahead of hosting the United Nations climate conference in November this year.

"Seeds and fertilizers need to urgently be available for farmers across conflict-affected northern Ethiopia to support the Meher planting season (Ethiopia's main rainy season) which is just weeks away," UNOCHA said in its latest situation update. "The food and nutritional security in conflict-affected communities across northern Ethiopia will be further impacted if seeds and fertilizers are not availed on time to farmers ahead of the harvest season," UNOCHA warned. UNOCHA warned that failure to provide seeds and fertilizers would result in a third consecutive poor agricultural season in the conflict-affected areas. In the Amhara region, 3.3 million farmers are in need of at least one type of agricultural intervention; out of these, 2.6 million farmers are targeted for multiple types of agricultural interventions. The UN estimated that more than 9 million people now need food assistance in conflict-affected parts of northern Ethiopia.
