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!

Houthi Attack Kills Dozens at Military Base Near Yemen’s Capital

A coordinated drone and missile attack by Iranian-backed Shi’ite Houthi rebels reportedly killed at least 60 people at a military base in Marib, located some 115 kilometers (70 miles) east of Yemen’s capital Sana’a. The strikes came in response to an ongoing offensive by Saudi-supported, pro-government forces on rebel targets in the same area, which has killed almost two dozen others. The escalation in the North – which remains largely under Houthi control – follows months of relative quiet and comes on the backdrop of renewed clashes near the southern port city of Hodeida, the main entry point for goods and humanitarian aid into the country and where a United Nations-brokered cease-fire is now hanging by a thread. Many Houthi gains in the South were rolled back by a Saudi-led coalition of Sunni Muslim nations that intervened militarily in Yemen in March 2015, shortly after the rebels had seized Sana’a and exiled members of the internationally recognized government. UN-mediated peace talks have since failed to resolve the conflict, with a multipoint plan to stem the fighting, agreed to by the opposing sides over a year ago in Stockholm, Sweden, now teetering on the verge of collapse. The war in Yemen has killed tens of thousands of people and pushed some 15 million more – over half of the nation’s population – to the brink of starvation.
