#Yemen – Having Lost the War Saudis Try Genocide – Media Complicit

#Saudi ends its blockade of Yemen’s ports and airports – Daily Mail
Saudi-led coalition says will reopen Yemen ports – Anadolu
Yemeni ports to reopen for aid, says Saudi Arabia – Deutsche Welle

The above headlines are false. The Saudi government announced the re-opening of some #Yemeni ports and airports. All of these are in the south and under control of #Saudi proxy forces who are fighting the
#Houthi west #Yemen. Some 70% of the population lives in the north-western areas which will continue to be under an extreme blockade. The most important port in their area is #Hodeida which will stay closed. Back in March the U.S. Pentagon tried to get control of the port.

In its new moves regarding the #Yemeni file, Washington is on a mission to stop the fall of #Marib
In the statements that Al-Jazeera reported on the American envoy, Linder King indicated that stopping the attack by Sanaa's forces on Marib is a major issue and a prerequisite
for any steps to make any progress in the negotiations,

Observers considered this to be a wave of proof of any of the steps that represent a prelude and a show of good faith, such as lifting the ban on ports and airports and allowing imports and fuel to enter through the
port of Hodeidah, with Sanaa's approval of the American proposal, which was previously rejected by Sanaa, which considers that lifting the ban About ports and the entry of imports into the country is a legal right and cannot be negotiated.
In response to the recent statements

While the canard design of #Hamas 'Shihab' (left) draws comparison with #Iran Ababil-2 (top right) and #Houthi Qasef-1/2 (bottom right), it is clearly a more compact unique design
Interesting that #Hamas 'Shihab' is shown using two different types of engine.

No mention was made of the facts that a Saudi invasion, not Iranian meddling, began this war, which has led to what has been assessed as the world's worst humanitarian crisis, in 2015;that the Saudi occupiers, who receive at least 70% of their weapons
from their chief strategic partner, the #US, have killed thousands of #Yemeni civilians; that while #Houthi missile strikes have mainly targeted Saudi military installations and oil infrastructure, the #Saudis and their invasion partners have indiscriminately attacked
civilians, partially or completely destroying over 500 healthcare facilities and bombing over 100 ambulances, even as the Covid-19 pandemic has ravaged the country.

But the #Houthi moves also point to the simpler, more-sinister reason why this war has turned so violent:

The #US is perceived as a foreign aggressor, not a neutral arbiter, and allow that to guide further actions: The Biden administration needs to shift the mindset with which it approaches the war in #Yemen:
by Annelle Sheline…
The #US is not seen as a neutral arbiter, and so trying to behave as if it were will be ineffective. The US has supported #Saudi Arabia’s efforts throughout the war, despite occasionally imposing some limits on US assistance.

Yet the US maintains a close military
partnership with Saudi and helps to enforce the blockade that is starving #Yemen of food and fuel. The fact that special envoy Tim Lenderking found it “confusing” that the #Houthis rebuffed his ceasefire proposal demonstrates that he does not understand that the #US is seen

Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Bruce Riedel has described the ongoing Saudi blockade as “an offensive military operation that kills civilians,” a situation that belies administration claims that the Saudi regime is “committed and eager to find a solution to the conflict.”
The coalition that sent the letter to the Biden administration acknowledged that it has taken some “critical first steps toward peace and food security in #Yemen,” including announcing an end to U.S. support for offensive operations in Yemen and relevant arms sales and

As Jews remember our liberation from persecution during #Passover2021, all Jews are not free. Iranian-regime backed #Houthi terrorists just expelled & made refugees of almost all of Yemen's last Jews & continue to illegally imprison Levi Salem Musa Marhabi Image

One clear video of an #Houthi Qasef-2K drone being hunted out of the skies by #RSAF F-15 Eagle.
Yes, as the comment has been made already and more people will say it, the drone, of course, is by far a cheaper option, the cost ratio of F15 vs drone is obviously 50x and more, with/without import costs on the drone....
Very valid point here by Thomas. I guess this comes down to full "bigger picture" - the last impact has taken out a single storage tank at Jizan Aramco site, for example.

Six years of fierce war later, and legitimacy has still not been restored. Nothing has been gained but ruin and destruction in #Yemen at the hands of those close to the people in land and bloodlines.

Dr Amira Abo el-Fetouh

Hundreds of thousands of #Yemenis have been killed in schools, mosques and markets; the missiles launched from the land of the Two Holy Mosques has not distinguished between civilians and soldiers. The goal is to eliminate the #Yemeni people, if not by missiles, then by
disease. Even cholera has been recorded among children, killing thousands, according to a report by the World Health Organisation. Famine has also spread across the country as a result of the unjust blockade imposed on it by #Saudi Arabia and the #UAE, the home of Arab

#CIA Pressured #Yemen to Release #alQaeda Leader From Prison
More evidence of CIA support for al-Qaeda exposed.

by Alexander Rubinstein…
#WASHINGTON (Substack // Alex Rubinstein) — Explosive new recordings released by the #Houthi government of #Yemen pile more earth atop mountains of existing evidence of the U.S. government’s support for the very same terrorists it has claimed to be waging war against for
nearly two decades.

The Moral Guidance Department, a branch of the Yemeni Armed Forces of the revolutionary Houthi government of #Yemen published last week a number of secret documents and phone calls from the former regime of longtime president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

How could Washington give #AnsarAllah reason to see a ceasefire as a better path than continued warfare?

To begin, the U.S. could demonstrate goodwill by convincing Saudi Arabia to end the blockade of #Yemen, including the airport in Sana’a and
the port at #Hodeida, both under #Houthi control.

Such a step would signal the #Biden administration’s commitment to concrete steps aimed at helping to wind down this conflict and address unfolding humanitarian concerns. In the process, if the #Saudis agree to lifting the
blockade, the #Houthis could, in turn, agree to halt all attacks on #Saudi territory to address #Riyadh’s legitimate security concerns.

Regardless of how the Biden administration approaches the #Houthi movement, it is safe to say that the future of large areas of northern
