GSN Issue 1181 cover
Issue 1181 - 23 Nov 2023

The issue leads with a focus on the role Qatari diplomacy is playing in the conflict between Israel and Hamas. GSN examines the details of events surrounding an agreed four-day truce in Gaza and the key Qatari figures involved in the diplomatic push.

GSN also focuses on Yemen, where Omani officials appear confident that, despite international diplomatic attention having largely switched to the Gaza conflict, a peace settlement can be achieved soon between Saudi Arabia and the warring factions in Yemen.

Politics coverage include an examination of the latest development in Kuwait, which may be heading for a change in government and yet another election, amid a series of political challenges facing Prime Minister Sheikh Ahmed Al-Nawaf Al-Sabah.

Defence and security coverage includes a closer look at the recent Dubai Airshow where, among the 54 deals signed by the UAE government’s Tawazun Council, was an air defence order with the unknown Black Diamond company, which GSN’s research suggests is an Israeli-linked venture created after Abu Dhabi’s Abraham Accord with Israel was concluded.

Finance and business coverage includes a look at a joint venture bid between a US-based investment firm and Abu Dhabi’s International Media Investments (IMI) to acquire the UK's Telegraph Media Group (TMG).

The GSN View looks at the growing profile of Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Khalid Bin Mohammed Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, who has been trying to cement his status within the political arena and among local citizens since being named crown prince in March.

Two Risk Management Reports focus on the UAE (Federation and individual emirates).
