The #UAE has moved to establish a joint international military base on #Yemen’s island of #Socotra, Informed sources said.

The sources affirmed that a military committee comprising 45 military officers and experts of various nationalities, including #Israelis,
held a meeting inside an #UAE camp, on Tuesday, and approved a plan to establish the military base on the island.

The #sources confirmed that the #UAE, in cooperation with the #US embassy in Riyadh-exiled “Hadi government, reworded dozens of #Socotra citizens, during the
past months, with huge sums of money and granted them #Emirati and #American nationalities, in exchange for assigning their lands.
Last Monday, 40 military officers, including experts, arrived on board an #Emirati plane, at #Socotra airport in the city of
#Hadibo, the capital of the island.

عبدالباري عطوان :
هُناك عدّة أسباب قد تمنع الإدارة الأمريكيّة حتى هذه اللّحظة من وضع حركة “أنصار الله” على قائمة الإرهاب:

أوّلًا: الحركة الحوثيّة لا تُقارن بجميع الحركات الأُخرى الموضوعة على هذه القائمة، لأنّها باتت أكبر بكثير من كونها مُنظّمة…
وأقرب إلى مُواصفات الدّولة، وتُسيطِر على مُعظم أقاليم الشّمال اليمني، وتملك قُدرةً عسكريّةً جبّارةً، باتت تتحكّم بجنوب الجزيرة العربيّة، وتُهدّد المِلاحة التجاريّة الدوليّة في مضيق باب المندب والبحر الأحمر، وبحر العرب بدَرجةٍ أقل، مُضافًا إلى ذلك أنّها تتواجد على أرضٍ يمنيّةٍ
أيّ أنّها ليست طارئةً أو لاجئة وتُقيم بشَكلٍ شرعيّ، وفَشِلَت ستّ حُروب في اقتِلاعها من جُذورها قبل الحرب التي يشنّها حاليًّا التّحالف السّعودي الإماراتي وبدَعمٍ مِنه.

ثانيًا: هُناك مُعارضة قويّة من الأمم المتحدة والمنظّمات الإنسانيّة لمِثل هذا التّصنيف للحركة،

A citizen was tortured to death by a faction of the pro-#UAE Southern Transitional Council (STC) inside a camp in the southern port city of Aden, #Yemen News Portal reported, citing local sources.
According to local sources, the young man, Mohammed Abdul Wahab al-Sabry, from Sabir Al Mawadim district in Taiz province, had a serious quarrel with a chicken vendor from Yafea district, prompting the latter to call the security belt faction in the 8th Brigade, whose members
belong to the same district to execute the young man.

The #UAE-backed militias tortured Al-Sabry inside the camp and then brutally hanged him to cover up their crime and then handed over his body to his family, one of the sources said.

#French warplanes have on Wednesday carried out sorties in the Gulf of Aden, off of #Yemen’s southern coast, #Yemen News Portal reported.

This coincides with a fierce conflict between several parties over the Balhaf LNG plant, which is owned by France’s Total, which holds
more than 39 percent of its shares and is currently controlled by the #UAE, while China is entering as a vital port operator in the Arabian Sea.

Air traffic maps in the Gulf of #Aden showed #French military aircraft flying off the coasts of Abyan and #Shabwah.
The aims of the #French moves, which follow the French parliament’s questioning of the government over the #UAE’s conversion of the Balhaf facility in #Yemen into a prison and torture facility, are as of yet not officially known.

The Man-Made Famine In #Yemen
By @DanielLarison

The war on #Yemen has done nothing to hurt #Iran in the slightest (not that it would be justified if it had), but it has driven a country of almost thirty million people into the abyss.
For five and a half years, our government has supported the wrecking and starvation of another country, and we have failed to bring that horror to an end. That will have to change in the new year, or countless more #Yemenis will die preventable deaths.

The litmus test for U.S. policy on #Yemen is simple: does it help end the conflict, or keep alive the millions of suffering #Yemenis? A terrorist designation of the #Houthis fails on both counts. Sadly, the #Trump administration knows this. In 2018,
