Hans Grundberg @OSE_Yemen just announced in his UNSC briefing that AnsarAllah (aka Houthis) have rejected his latest proposal of 3rd July on road opening in #Taiz. Maybe a good time for part 2 of my thread on Taiz roads issue that I started on 27 June:
As a reminder, I left off in my last thread explaining with this image that the city of Taiz (with over a million inhabitants) has 3 main entrances from the east, north, and north-west. The eastern entrance (leading to/from Hawban area) is further divided to 4 sub-routes
I also explained in my previous thread that in addition to blocking the entrances to the city, AA forces are also blocking the main road connecting Taiz south to the port city of Aden, and the other main road connecting Taiz west to Hodeidah port and Mokha port.

"The Road to Peace Runs Through Taiz" was the title of a flagship report by @BrettSc0tt @deeprootyemen in June 2020. This is even more true today as the fragile truce in #Yemen hinges on making progress in #Taiz. I will try to explain why in this (long!) thread. Image
Requiring AnsarAllah (aka Houthis) to open the main roads to the city of Taiz has been on the UN-led negotiations table since Stockholm (Dec2018) through to the Joint Declaration efforts (Starting April2020) and finally the (ongoing) truce announced on 1st April 2022
The current truce included 1-a ceasefire, 2-resumption of flights to Sana'a airport, 3-allowing fuel shipments to Hodeidah seaport, and 4-opening roads in Taiz (& other governorates). The first three items have been implemented to a large extent, the fourth is still stuck...

Deeply honoured that @PrixBayeux has given us the TV award for this report from #Yemen in January. It comes as the UN Human Rights Council halts an independent investigation into possible war crimes by all sides in #Yemen. #YemenCantWait
This is Ruwaydah, 8. She was shot in the head by a sniper, as she went to collect water. It was her brother Amri, 10, who dragged her to safety. Human rights activists in #Taiz have documented hundreds of attacks on children by #Houthi snipers. #YemenCantWait
The maiming and killing of children is not limited to one side in the war in #Yemen. We reported in 2018 on the school boys killed when their bus was hit in an airstrike by the #Saudi led coalition. At least 40 children never came home. #YemenBusAttack #YemenCantWait

After a week of reinforcements & preparations, #Houthis/#Ansarullah restarted offensive to capture #Marib city. After some hours of combats, advances were reported in Meghdal, Jawf & Rahabah/Harib axis, while #YSF hold its positions in Sirwah, Raghwan & Jabal Murad axis so far.
Small #Houthi/#Ansarullah advances in Jawf, Raghwan, Sirwah & Jabal Murad axis. Battles are very hard in all Marib fronts as #YSF is putting heavy resistance. New map in the next hours...
Bloody day today between both sides in #Marib, specially Sirwah front. #Houthi/#Ansarullah retreated from some positions while #YSF is being very pressured in Jawf & northern Marib axis.

Thread below.

2. After release of first report, #Yemen #UAE #Saudi #Egypt refused to cooperate with group.

Despite restrictions, GEE conducted >600 interviews w/ victims, witnesses and other sources, and examined a large volume of documentary and open-source material.
3. Legal context: non-international armed conflict between Houthis and GoY, with coalition as parties (tbd how UAE/Yemen battles impact in future).

Also note other non-international armed conflicts, incl between AQAP and GoY, with IHL applying to US actions against AQAP.

Thread on highlights from #Houthi/#AnsarAllah leader Abdulmalik’s first interview with Al Masirah (@almasirah), the Houthis' TV channel. (Context in parentheses). Thread ≠ endorsement. EN translation linked below (but not great). #Yemen english.almasirah.net/details.php?es…
1/ Some terminology context: (a) the #Houthis call themselves AnsarAllah (AA). To them, “the Houthis” are merely the family with the last name “Houthi” to which Abdulmalik Al Houthi (AMH) belongs; (b) the Houthis call the #Saudi-led coalition “the aggression.” #Yemen
2/ #US/#Israel Conspiracy: AMH blames the “heavy losses and major events” in the region squarely on the US/Israel. Says there is a “defined policy… to target free people… that oppose US and Zionist hegemony” across the region. #Yemen

When Saleh and family, including nephew Tareq Mohammad, appeared to recover control of #Yemen capital last Friday, his admirers, apologists immediately revived old praise for Saleh as a “smart” political survivor. This was most common view of Saleh in 1990s and 2000s. /1
But only in a country with dismally low standards of national politics would a leader like Saleh be praised as “smart.” In reality, Saleh practiced divide and rule politics that ruined any chance of unity in 1990s, while keeping Yemen mired in poverty. /2
Saleh always blamed poverty on someone else, rather than take responsibility himself. His record over the past six years, since 2011 Arab Spring, proved that he failed at every turn. Thus, there is no cause for admiring & apologizing for him. /3
