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!

Yemen’s Houthi Rebels Hit Saudi Oil Facility

Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen used a missile on Monday to strike a Saudi facility run by the mostly state-owned Saudi Aramco oil company, according to a rebel spokesperson. The facility is located in the Red Sea city of Jeddah. The Saudi government and Aramco withheld comment on the attack when contacted by the Reuters news agency. Attacks on Saudi Arabia by the Houthis have escalated since late May after the expiration of a coronavirus-inspired truce. The Shi’ite Houthis have regularly used ballistic and cruise missiles, as well as drones – some said to have been supplied by Iran – to stage attacks against infrastructural targets such as oil refineries and airports in Saudi Arabia, which for the past five years has led a coalition of Sunni-Muslim states in backing the internationally recognized government of Yemen. Monday’s missile attack comes a day after the conclusion of the virtual G20 summit hosted by Saudi Arabia.
