Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

Saudi-led Coalition Downs Houthi Missile Fired from Yemen

A Saudi-led coalition of Sunni states backing the internationally recognized government of Yemen says its forces have shot down a ballistic missile launched toward southern Saudi Arabia by Shi’ite Houthi rebels. The Iran-backed Houthis, who dislodged Yemen’s government from the capital Sanaa five years ago, are accused of having fired the missile on Tuesday after launching drones toward Saudi territory on Monday night. The coalition claims to have downed the drones. A spokesman for the Houthis issued a statement on Twitter saying the nighttime drone attack came in response to coalition airstrikes. Houthi health sources said a Monday airstrike by the coalition killed 13 people, including several children. The Reuters news agency spoke with people in Sanaa, citing them as reporting several additional airstrikes on Tuesday to the west and south of the city, which the coalition later confirmed as having been undertaken by its aircraft.
