To be sure, the #Omanis are not acting as interlocutors between Riyadh and the #Houthis for the sole reason of helping #SaudiArabia exit this bloody quagmire with a sense of security and dignity. Continuation of the #Yemen crisis poses the
gravest threat to #Oman’s national security as well, especially considering the complex situation that has unfolded for years in #alMahra. Therefore, reaching a political settlement in Yemen that can bring about a new Omani-Saudi understanding vis-à-vis eastern #Yemen bodes
well for Muscat’s interests in seeing the multiple and intersecting conflicts in #Yemen wind down. In the words of the University of Exeter’s Marc Valeri, “Omani foreign policy is basically at the service of Omani political stability, and #Omani political stability needs

U.S. military surges bring chaos, human-rights abuses

Residents in eastern #Yemen(#Al_Mahra Governorate )see the surge of U.S. military personnel as malign and colonial in nature and worry that it will bring not only chaos and instability to their region but could also bring
with it the infamous human rights abuses and horrific violations that took place in Afghanistan and #Iraq, where thousands of civilians were killed or tortured, some by #American troops, others by private military contractors like #Blackwater.

The #Houthis turned down the meeting because the peace plan does not go far enough to lift the blockade imposed by #Saudi . Mohammed Abdulsalam, spokesman for the #Yemeni #Anssarallah movement and senior negotiator for the
#Sanaa National Rescue Government, accused the #UN Security Council of prolonging the war against #Yemen. “You are talking about part of the ongoing battle and leaving the discussion about the besieged Yemen. That is not enough for the ongoing conflict, it does not address
the problem, it exacerbates it. ”He took the view that talking about a single battle - in relation to #Marib - does not help to achieve peace but rather prolongs the war.

Nevertheless, Maas is silent about the political and military cooperation of ex-President Hadi,

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.

Top member in the Supreme Political Council, @Moh_Alhouthi, commented on the new #US sanctions on a number of people, including #Yemenis, whom Washington claimed were affiliated with Iran’s Revolutionary Guard and the #Ansarullah#Houthis”, running financial operations to
support #Yemen army forces.

Mohammed Ali #alHouthi said in a tweet today that #America is putting the option of war as a priority in #Yemen while demonstrating peace.

He added: “Imposing sanctions allegedly in favor of imposing peace is an obstacle to achieving peace.”

#AlHouthi considered the #US sanctions as a new crime targeting the private sector after targeting the central bank and stopping the export of oil, bombing factories and starving #Yemenis by siege and cutting salaries

This is a systematic plan to eliminate the economy,

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
