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

Arabia Saudí y sus aliados han lanzado ataques aéreos contra las granjas y huertos, depósitos de agua, así como tiendas, fábricas, empresas, puertos y carreteras de #Yemen. Estos bombardeos no se consideran
sino fueron bombardeos a sabiendas que hundieron al pueblo #yemení en el hambre para quebrar su voluntad.

Desde el inicio de la guerra en marzo de 2015, Arabia Saudí y los Emiratos Árabes Unidos han lanzado más de 680 bombardeos contra tierras agrícolas.
Al menos 153 de esos ataques han sido efectuados contra las granjas de Al-Hudaida, dejando 400 víctimas civiles entre muertos y heridos, y así han interrumpido las cadenas de suministro de alimentos en #Yemen.

This operation stinks of Operation Carwash. Prince had no authority to Train troops for R2 (Just like he did illegally in Canada during Harper's term) and the guys sent in were from Colombia.…
Erik Prince privitized police & mercenaries, was a distributor of weapons & crisis supplies. Erik Prince & US investors crafted the profits of wars, climate disasters & social discord. They banked on it. Climate denial = $. All in this book.

For many in Yemen, there is little reason for optimism entering what feels like the third phase of the war against their country as Israel ostensibly enters the fray.

On this day exactly 100 years ago, a total of 3 thousand barefooted Yemeni pilgrims were slaughtered in the Tanomah Valley in Saudi Arabia, as they were on their way to perform the compulsory Islamic Hajj. Image
Rogue wahhabists in the hills and on horseback opened fire with British-supplied weaponry. They cut off the heads of those that survived the initial shootout, and chased after the pilgrims that were fleeing the massacre.
The Tanomah massacre of 1920 is one of the darkest chapters of the history between Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The Saudis have never treated the Yemeni people right. What is happening right now can be traced back to the Tanomah valley massacre 100 years ago.

The YSC conducted a short interview with a few of our voluntary members operating in Yemen regarding our assumption of USAID and its ulterior motives.

Truth be told, a lot of them agreed that USAID is a front for espionage and propaganda.
One of our members, who shall remain anonymous, told us during an online meeting how one of his friends were offered money, in exchange for confidential information that could tarnish Yemen's political stability and defensive preparedness.

They are hiring spies for cheap.
The USAID branch in Yemen is tied to the American Embassy in the country. Even though the embassy has been closed for 5 years due to the war, the Embassy continues to conduct so-called "workshops" with the intent to spread its ideology and worldview to young Yemeni people.
