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:

#Houthis’ New Missile System Raises #Saudi Confusion

The Saudi coalition admitted its failure to intercept the recent air attack that targeted vital military and economic facilities in Jizan region, south of #Saudi Arabia. This indicates that the new missile system for
#Sana’a has the capabilities of resistance to the world-famous defense systems known as “Patriot”, the pride of the #American industry.

#Saudi media quoted the coalition spokesperson, Turki Al-Maliki, as saying that the air defenses intercepted drones that were targeting
Jizan, a tale that the coalition tells every time Saudi Arabia is exposed to an air attack to justify the failure of its forces and reduce the reactions of #Saudi citizens in light of explosions and fires.

The coalition did not comment on the causes of fires and

Die jemenitischen #Houthis haben innerhalb einer Woche den zweiten massiven Raketen- und Drohnenangriff auf Objekte in #SaudiArabia gestartet.
Riad schweigt, doch angesichts der zahlreichen Videos von brennenden Objekten dürfte der Schaden am Boden signifikant sein.
Eingesetzt wurden wieder sogenannte Kamikaze-Drohnen sowie einfache ballistische Raketen.
Die Angriffe erfolgen mittlerweile nahezu wöchentlich.
Die #Saudi Flugabwehr zeigt sich absolut hilflos gegenüber diesen Angriffen der #Houthis .
Der Krieg wird für Riad zum Desaster.
US-Abwehrsysteme "Patriots" scheinen da auch nicht großartig zu helfen.
Obwohl sie auch dieses mal aktiv wurden, konnten sie den Berichten und Videos zu Folge nur einen Bruchteil der Raketen und Drohnen abfangen.
Deshalb auch die Zerstörungen am Boden.

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

#Yemen war , so today after the reports coming from #Marib say that #AlQaeda and #ISIS terrorists are fighting alongside the Saudi supported forces .. After Sana'a forces has captured not a small number of foreign terrorists fighters in Marib battles , One of $audi official
newspapers writes a report in its frontpage , the title in bold big black letters " #Houthis are supporting #AlQaeda and #ISIS with OIL "
Lmao just imagine the following; $audi is imposing a blockade on #Yemen. Around 12 oil tankers heading for #Yemen , carrying oil bought
by Yemen have been pirated by $audi. $audi would not allow these oil tankers to offload in the #Yemeni port of #Hodaidah. This has cost #Yemen close to 100 million $ due to the delay .. These oil tankers have been searched by the UN and have been cleared to offload their oil

The mysteries of the relationship between #AlQaeda and #ISIS networks and the #US-#Saudi-led countries of war coalition against #Yemen are still unfolding day by day. Documented reports recorded #AlQaeda leaders participating in the battlefronts alongside the
coalition countries against what they called the #Houthis.
This has already been presented in media reports broadcast by the (BBC) channel, which demonstrated images of #AlQaeda militants in camps affiliated to the so-called legitimacy and backed by the coalition countries,
while they were flying #AlQaeda flags on #American military vehicles, bought by #Saudi Arabia and the #UAE, on the battlefronts.

An extensive field report was also broadcast by the #American news agency, Associated Press, which concluded that #AlQaeda in #Yemen is a key ally

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

Die #Houthis im #Yemen haben die nächste Drohne vom Himmel geholt, diesmal allerdings keine saudische, sondern eine US-amerikanische.
Sie schossen eine US-Drohne MQ-9 Reaper ab.
Unklar, mit welcher Rakete.
Die Luftabwehr der Huthis wird jedenfalls zusehends schlagkräftig.
Alle paar Wochen holen sie feindliche Drohnen vom Himmel ab, meist die von der #Saudi -Koalition.
Vermutlich nutzen die #Houthis hierfür vor allem iranische Abwehrsysteme, aber auch alte sowjetische Teile, die noch quer durch Nahost und Afrika geistern.
Apropos #Saudi -Koalition.
Die Lage für sie wird im Jemen von Woche zu Woche schwieriger.
Die strategisch wichtige Stadt #Marib könnte fallen, dann verliert die Koalition ihre letzte große Bastion.
Sie antwortet mit teils willkürlichen Luftschlägen.

#SaudiArabia declared its #Yemen's "initiative" to the press but never discussed it with the Yemenite.
Saudi did not declare this media-initiative to please the #US administration because Biden's envoy came to #Oman to discuss with Ansar Alllah the advance toward Marib.
To be clear, the #US negotiators were negotiating on behalf of #SaudiArabia, trying to dictate their conditions on Ansar Allah as if the Saudis were winning the war (the reality is the opposite).
Ansar Allah negotiators are aware of the US tactics +
Actually, we see a #US administration leaving and another coming in but they all follow a book in their wars: what is impossible to gain on the ground using military power, is worth trying using sanctions or humanitarian aids to recover the losses.+

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

#SaudiArabia hat wieder die Hauptstadt vom #Yemen bombardiert.
Wie auch schon zuvor bei ähnlichen Saudi-Bombardements erscheinen die Angriffe willkürlich, denn die eigentlichen Kämpfe finden über Hundert km entfernt statt.
Umkämpft ist die strategisch wichtige Stadt #Marib
Zur Erinnerung.
Im #Yemen wird gerade heftig um die strategisch wichtige Stadt #Marib gekämpft.
#SaudiArabia bombardierte nun mehrfach die jemenitische Hauptstadt #Sanaa , die eigentlich 120 km entfernt von der Front liegt.
Mehr dazu hier 👇
An der Front selbst schwankt das Kriegsglück. Mal rücken die #Houthis vor, mal werden sie zurückgedrängt.
Der Vorteil der Huthis ist vor allem ihre große Mobilität sowie ihre Motivation.
Sie kämpfen für ihr Land, die Saudi-Koalition betrachten sie als mordende Okkupanten.

Shipments of #missiles and special equipment continue to flow to Hezbollah. At sea and on land, #Iran is doing everything it can to further strengthen #Hezbollah, the #Houthis and the Iranian militias in Syria.
The #Iranians manage to regularly deliver to its consumers, such a special shipment that includes anti-aircraft missiles and equipment designed for the missile upgrade project held by Hezbollah last month at Rafiq al-Hariri Airport in Beirut.
For years, foreign intelligence systems have exposed the transfer of Hezbollah weapons and fighters to and from #Lebanon aboard Iranian civilian planes.

#Yemen—Every day, dozens of the #Houthis militiamen are killed, in some days the number reaches hundreds, and those who try to escape the battle field, get shut by their seniors.
On the other hand, there are reports that informal meetings are being held between the #Houthi representatives and a third party mediating between them and the 🇺🇸United States.
Most security experts from the Persian Gulf state emphatically that the launches at #Aramco were not carried out by the Houthis but by the #Hezbollah Unit 400. @CENTCOM @coalition @IDF

In contrast, determining a red line when it comes to #accuracy is more elusive. 1
Certainly when that "existential threat" does not exist in its classical form. For comparison, #Israel did not launch a pre-emptive strike against the threat of tunnels from #Gaza (until it saw terrorists exiting a tunnel near Kibbutz Sufa and launched Operation Eitan),
nor a pre-emptive war on Palestinian terror, despite hundreds of deaths (until Seder attack). Protective wall).#Israel refrained from launching a similar counterattack on another strategic threat - the enormous amount of #chemical weapons that #Syria held until the Civil War. 3

Former UN envoy to #Yemen and Special Adviser to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Jamal Benomar, has reiterated that the war that was declared by the US-Saudi coalition on Yemen in March 2015, came “at a time when the
parties had already reached a consensus on the form of the executive and legislative powers, security arrangements, and the schedule of the transition process.”

“The agreement was on the table,” Benomar said.

In an article published on the Newsweek magazine, Jamal Benomar
confirmed that Security Council Resolution 2216 provided a cover for the atrocities that followed, noting that it was a resolution drafted by the Saudis, and quickly carried by the United States, Great #Britain and #France to a council that is supposed to be concerned with
