Yemen's southern separatists battle own breakaway movement

Preacher's go-ahead for killing opponents increases fears of fighting among pro-secessionists even amid civil war

A new layer of complexity has been added to Yemen's civil war as the Saudi and United Arab Emirates-backed bloc fighting Iran-supported Houthi rebels faces not just a split but a real risk of internal conflict.

The split emerged in May when a Southern Transitional Council was established after President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi removed from their posts the governor of Aden province, Aidarous al-Zubaidi, and cabinet minister Hani Bin Breik, both of whom support an independent southern Yemen.

Hadi has Saudi backing while Zubaidi and other southerners are backed by the UAE.

Rising political tensions took an ominous turn on this month when a preacher from the newly formed transitional council, Mohammed Ramzo, called for the blood of opponents to be spilled, even if they were southerners.

"The blood of the traitors of the Southern Council is not forbidden," he said on 7 July.

In a Friday prayer sermon, Ramzo said supporters of Hadi were traitors to the south and anyone backing federalism “should go to Sanaa" - the Yemeni capital regarded in the south as a symbol of oppression.

The unity of Yemen's southern tribes and political groupings when they combined to fight against and repel the Houthi rebels in March 2015 has all but dissipated.

The divide now, however, has become so wide that gatherings in Aden to mark what southern Yemenis call the war of independence in 1994 had to be held in two separate locations.

The transitional council has downplayed the rift among southern secessionists despite the preacher Ramzo saying that the killing of opponents, even if they are southerners, is permissible.

The spokesman stressed that such misunderstandings or disagreements cannot be allowed to transform into real disputes and that the council would soon find a solution.

"The council is keen to talk with all groups of the south that believe in the southern cause," he said, while pointing out that the council works under the umbrella of the government and Hadi.

Fadhl al-Rabei, a political analyst and head of the Madar Strategic Studies Centre in Aden, gave MEE contradictory reactions to the Southern Transitional Council, saying that the opposition is not against the idea of the council but is seeking to ensure that all groups get a seat on it.

"Most of the southern groups were almost convinced about the idea of the council. But those groups also consider themselves to be freedom fighters and capable of being in the leadership of the south," said Rabei. "This is the main disagreement between the council and other leaders in the south."

Rabei also said the transitional council would try to provide sorely needed leadership among the southerners and therefore would not ignore any voice from southerners opposed to it.

Zabaidi, the sacked governor, is seen as close to the UAE, which southerners think will support their bid to achieve independence, according to Rabei.

"The council, too, does not oppose Hadi because the leadership of the council wants to maintain its relationship with all coalition countries," he said.

But Rabei also suggested that the council would be aware that fighting units in Aden were likely to be loyal to the UAE rather than to Hadi.

Yemen’s Al-Hirak Movement

UAE-backed Al-Hizam forces “are our sons” says southern movement representative

Khalil Dewan interviews Summer Ahmed, an official representative of the Southern Transitional Council, otherwise known as Al-Hirak, the movement which seeks to secede from central and northern Yemen.

Ahmed: The different factions of Al-Hirak all had the same goal of independence but disagreed on how it would be accomplished. One faction wanted a unilateral declaration of independence, another faction wanted a referendum and yet another said through negotiations with North Yemen, like the negotiations that took place to unite South Yemen and North Yemen. Also, each faction had a different leader which has made it very difficult to create one southern political entity since Al-Hirak was launched in 2007.

These differences and factions are irrelevant now after the historic Aden Declaration and the establishment of the inclusive Southern Transitional Council that brought Al-Hirak and tribal leaders under one entity, one representative body for the south supported and approved by the majority of southerners.

The movement believes that solving the southern issue is fundamental to ending the conflict in Yemen. The current conflict is a power struggle for control of land and resources between North Yemeni kleptocrats and South Yemen, which has seventy-five per cent of Yemen’s resources. A power sharing agreement between the warring sides that does not give the southern people autonomy and more control of their resources will only start a third war between north and south.

The official position is that Ali Abdullah Saleh is the enemy of South Yemen and its people; he and his allies have killed southerners in their thousands since the civil war between north and south in 1994. He and his government, oppressed, marginalised, killed, imprisoned and tortured southerners and looted all southern land and resources.

The Southern Movement’s official stance is with Hadi as the legitimate president. Even though southerners view him as a person who was part of Saleh’s government that killed southerners, they forged an alliance of convenience with President Hadi mainly to protect the south from the Houthis and their ally Saleh.

There’s no cooperation between the movement and the Houthis. Those are rumours mostly pushed by Islah media who are against Al-Hirak and their aspiration for independence. The Houthi invasion of the south was so vicious and devastating that southerners will not forgive or forget.

The Southern Movement is allied with the Arab Coalition led by Saudi Arabia and UAE. It is a peaceful movement and only picked up arms for self-defence against the Houthis and Saleh militia. Hadi is an ally of the Southern Movement.

Film: UN ALERT (18+) Cholera, Famine & Siege of Yemen Has Condemned Yemen's Children To Death.

Apathy of world leaders is killing Yemen's children. The lack of action against the Saudi invasion and attempted occupation of Yemen will go down in history as the greatest humanitarian tragedy of our century. Why you may wonder? Because it is 100% preventable. With starvation and curable illnesses killing children - ONLY because Saudi Arabia has somehow grappled the power to control access in - or out - of a sovereign nation - The Republic of Yemen.
Yemen Organization for Humanitarian Relief and Development (Mona), is a national Independent, non-governmental and non-profitable organization based in Yemen.The organization activities are mainly focused in the field of humanitarian relief.
With a single intent and a single goal, an idea was conceived: the idea to somehow go around the current Blockade on Yemen and help those who are displaced by war. With this idea the #20ForYemenproject was started on Twitter. In as little as 10 days, Twitter responded to our initial call to action, and we raised $4200. This amount was enough to feed almost 150 families for a month. Mona Relief was on its way to bigger things
Our name, Mona, has a story of its own. Mona is the name of the lady who donated the very first $1000 for us to make our first delivery of food to Internally Displaced Person's (IDPs) in the area of Nuqim in Sana’a.

"Dengue fever" threatens the lives of citizens in "Mahfad" in Abyan province and urgent demands to intervene

The Directorate of "Mahfad" in Abyan province, south of Yemen, suffers from the outbreak of the "dengue fever" which threatens the Directorate a few days ago.

A local source in the Directorate said in a statement to " the Yemeni scene " that the interruption of electricity and high temperature and the spread of insect mosquitoes contributed to the spread of the epidemic in the Directorate.

The source stressed that "the residents asked the local authority in the Directorate urgently to carry out a clean campaign to reduce the spread of the epidemic and prevent the disease in addition to" spraying campaigns "in particular to prevent the spread of the epidemic.

The source explained that "the health center in the Directorate receives many cases on a daily basis amid shortages of medical supplies and equipment.

The source called on the businessmen and expatriates from the Directorate to contribute to reducing the spread of the epidemic supported by the health center in the Directorate. and in translation:

Yemen cholera worst on record & numbers still rising - Oxfam

The number of people with cholera in Yemen is now the largest ever recorded in any country in a single year since records began, Oxfam said today. At over 360,000 suspected cholera cases in just three months since the outbreak started, it is now already the largest number of cases in a year, topping the previous annual record of 340,311 in Haiti in 2011.

Though there are signs that the increase in numbers is slowing, the country’s rainy season from July to September will increase the risk of the disease spreading further. It is feared that the total number of people infected could eventually rise to over 600,000, making it one of the largest outbreaks since records began in 1949.

Almost 2,000 people in Yemen have died from suspected cholera since late April this year and many more are now at risk, weakened by hunger, disease and the ongoing war.

Der Charme des Drohnenkriegs: Krieg zu führen wird leichter, das eigene Volk spürt ihn nicht.

Normale Kriegseinsätze haben die unschöne Nebenwirkung für die kriegführenden Regierungen, dass die eigenen Soldaten tot oder als Krüppel in die Heimat zurückkehren. Das kann die Kriegsmoral stören. Und hier kommen die Drohnen ins Spiel. „Die US-Regierung setzt Drohnen ein, um das Risiko für ihre Soldaten und damit die innere Opposition gegen den Krieg zu minimieren.“ Das ist die Einschätzung des ehemaligen US-Geheimdienstmitarbeiters Ray McGovern. Sie leuchtet ein. Deshalb hat Josefa Zimmermann für die Leserinnen und Leser der NachDenkSeiten den einschlägigen Beitrag von McGovern übersetzt.

It's increasingly clear that the hacking incident last May which created a pretext for the Saudi-Emirati confrontation with Qatarwas not a random attack: it had been carefully planned and took more than a month to prepare. This is a significant development because it suggests that the resulting international crisis, far from blowing up unexpectedly, had also been planned in advance.

Analysts: Qatar Backed Yemen’s Houthis with Iranian Coordination to Target Saudi Arabia

My comment: This is really odd propaganda. Actors they had been forgotten here: The Mafia, Northern Korea, and the president of Venezuela.

Comment by Judith Brown: Wow this is obviously Saudi Arabian propaganda. Let's get it straight - until last month Qatar and Saudi Arabia were fighting side by side in Yemen on the same side. So this really doesn't ring true. And more absolute rubbish - where it says Qatar persuaded the Muslim brotherhood to join forces with the Houthis to attack Saudi Arabia - anyone who knows anything about what is happening is Yemen knows that Islah the Yemeni Muslim brotherhood is an uncompromising enemy of the Houthi militias. How do they get anyone to print these untruths?

Comment: We never share Saudi faux-news but this is worth mentioning being emblematic of the level of paranoia and related 'paranoia narrative' being built ad hoc, to justify an endless flow of war crimes.

More Comments: I said it before: now it will be double chase in #Yemen. Ghosts of Iran and Qatar. There is a medical term: paranoia

Exact term is Paranoid Schizophrenia: target to a mass of terror about the world around. Everyone becomes enemies & they should die
