Ships Warned to Avoid Red Sea After Airstrikes

BIMCO, another big trade group, confirmed that military advice was to avoid the area of hostility — effectively shutting off the southern Red Sea for transit.

  • Students will actively engage in group discussions, practice active listening, and role-play conflict resolution scenarios to develop effective communication and problem-solving skills.
