Yemen separatists open New York office to lobby UN

A separatist movement in war-torn Yemen is opening a New York office to help press its case for self-rule at the United Nations.

The Southern Transitional Council (STC) disclosed in a new lobbying filing that it had hired a branch manager for the new office on March 1. The council has been lobbying the Donald Trump administration and Congress via a representative office in Washington since 2018.

“We are in the process of opening a branch office of the Transitional Southern Council (STC) in New York City with a sole mandate to follow up with our work as related to United Nations,” the group said in its filing for the six months through May 2020. The office manager, Alkhader Nasr Sulaiman, has to date not registered as a foreign agent.

Yemeni official: Saudi commander vowed to bomb Shahin crossing

Saudi Arabia takes measures hindering the work at Shahin crossing in Mahara bordering Oman, the Yemeni official government-appointed deputy governor of the eastern governorate said Monday.
The Saudi troops' representative in Mahara has vowed to launch an air strike on the crossing facility along with its staff, Badr Kalashat added in remarks to Al-Jazeera TV.
The Saudi commander "has repeatedly threatened the facility's management to detain the staff if not fulfilling his wishes.
"We reject and won't tolerate these intimidations, but will report these threats and measures to the legitimate leadership and coalition" command led by Saud Arabia, the Yemeni official added.
Tensions in Mahara sporadically raise between Saudi troops along with local authority and tribal groups, opposing the Saudi military presence in the governorate, led by Mahara sacked deputy governor, Sheikh Ali Salim al-Harizi.

UAE presence in Yemen undermines legitimate Hadi government

The relentless protagonist in supporting the STC in Yemen has been the UAE, which has been financially, militarily and politically assisting the council after assuming the lion’s share in its foundation in 2017 under the leadership of former Aden Governor Aidarus Al Zubaidi. The penetration of the STC in the southern governorates has helped the UAE in its overall Yemen strategy, particularly proving useful in the face of the UAE’s military drawdown in June 2019 and the complete military withdrawal in February 2020.

Yet despite the reduction in the number of troops and the complete military withdrawal, the UAE activities in Yemen have continued to overshadow the political resolution efforts, worsening the military situation on the ground. Emboldened by the UAE’s support as well as the impasse in which the Hadi government finds itself in the presence of mounting Houthi threats toward the Ma’rib governorate, the STC has over the last months made serious efforts to consolidate its power in the southern governorates. Along with the natural disasters hitting Yemen, a cholera outbreak and COVID-19 with its terrifying implications helped the STC in portraying itself as a public service provider.

Recent developments in the southern governorates have added clarity as to what the UAE is trying to achieve through the STC. It is now more evident that the UAE – by supporting a bunch of separatists – undermines the credibility of the Hadi government and tries to shatter Yemen’s already diminished territorial integrity.

What is interesting is that the Hadi government officials have recently found out that the UAE-supported STC is in cooperation with former President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s followers. Particularly in the Abyan governorate, where clashes have intensified recently owing to the cutting out of the Aden-Abyan-Hadramawt route, the cooperation between Brig. Gen. Tareq Saleh, a nephew of Saleh, and the STC figures becomes evident. This would mean that the UAE is trying to bring together nearly all the actors that it has been backing. What is bizarre is the intensity of the shifting of alliances given that Saleh was killed by Houthi militias in 2017 on the charges of making secret plans to shoot Houthi militia from behind.

The clashes between the Hadi government and the STC have been taking place in and around the Abyan governorate particularly after the STC’s self-rule decision. This fact tells us that the STC has not steered away from its anti-government position in August 2019, when it seized the presidential palace and some other governmental institutions in Aden. Just as it happened after the “Aden coup” in 2019, the Abyan governorate, Shabwa, and Zinjibar province have been the victims of the UAE-supported STC all over again.

The STC’s deviation from the Riyadh Agreement and its fight against the Hadi government is endangering the legitimate government’s capability to fight the Houthi militia in the North – bx Gökhan Ereli

My comment: From Turkey. Turkey is hostile to the UAE, driving forwards its own policy in Yemen. This is emphasized by pro-UAE media, see below. It seems, Turkey supports the “legitimate” government of Yemen and its allies.

Qatar finances Turkish scheme to form militia in Yemeni province

Ex-transport minister Saleh al-Jabwani recruited more than 600 people so far with the complicity of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Private sources revealed to The Arab Weekly that the resigned Yemeni transport minister, Saleh al-Jabwani, has opened a militia recruitment camp in the city of Ataq, the capital of Shabwa province in Yemen, in accordance with a Turkish plan and with Qatari financing.

The sources said that Jabwani, with the complicity of the governor of Shabwa, Muslim Brotherhood member Mohamed bin Adiyu, and after his return from a secret visit to Doha where he secured huge funds, has transformed the “Al-Awa’il” school, located near the headquarters of the National Army and of the Special Forces in Ataq, into a recruitment camp for new soldiers.

The sources confirmed that Jabwani has recruited more than 600 people so far by paying them monthly and daily allowances and buying weapons for them from the black market in Shabwa and Marib.

According to the sources, the ex-minister bought dozens of four-wheel drive vehicles from Al-Mahrah and Hadramaut and paid more than the actual value for this type of vehicle. The Arab coalition recently banned the export of this type of vehicle to Yemen, fearing it could be used by Houthi militias.

Sources told The Arab Weekly that the ex-minister was involved in a Turkish scheme with Qatari financing to create anti-Arab coalition militias, along with a similar activity carried out by the Muslim Brotherhood leader Hamoud Saeed al-Mikhlafi, who established similar camps in Taiz province to recruit fighters and encourage Yemenis involved in fighting the Houthis in Saada to defect to his camps.

The sources also indicated that there is coordination and between Jabwani and Mikhlafi on the one hand, and Interior Minister Ahmad al-Maysari on the other. Maysari’s role consists of recruiting “graduates” of Jabwani’s and Mikhlafi’s camps and enrolling them in the security forces belonging to the ministry of interior, or creating new units and brigades just for them.

The Arab Weekly had already revealed in a series of reports the involvement of Qatar and the pro-Muslim Brotherhood current in the internationally-recognised government in working to dismantle the Saada fronts and the establishment of armed militias hostile to the Arab coalition.

Qatar's wing in the Islah Party seeks to block Riyadh agreement

A number of Yemeni politicians affirmed that the association of ministers and officials in the Yemeni legitimate government with the Qatari interference in the Yemeni conflict poses a threat to the future of Yemen and its people, especially after the malicious intentions of the Brotherhood's global organisation were exposed in the pursuit of prolonging the war, undermining the security and stability of the region, and empowering terrorist elements, who sowed chaos to put Yemen in endless conflicts, Saudi Media reported.

They explained that the Qatari intervention, a part of the Brotherhood’s scheme in Yemen, is not for the interest of Yemen, but rather to create an environment hostile to the Arab coalition

Saudi Arabia bans Turkish aid from Aden

Turkish aid plane refused landing in occupied city under pretext of preventing support for terrorism

Sources at Aden airport have on Sunday revealed that the Saudi-led coalition has prevented a Turkish cargo plane carrying aid from landing in the city, which is suffering from the spread of Covid-19 and several other deadly diseases.

The banning of the plane landing was reportedly done under the pretext of preventing the “transport of terrorists.”

According to the sources, the plane was expected to arrive last week, but the coalition refused to grant it landing permits, although it only carried aid.

Coalition forces justified the move by saying that Turkey was trying to move fighters from Syria to support the Islah party (Yemeni Branch of the Muslim Brotherhood) in southern Yemen.

Saudi media had pre-empted the plane’s arrival by talking about Turkey’s start-up of a recruitment operation in Syria for its followers in Yemen.

Turkey later announced that it would send aid to Ma’rib, Islah’s stronghold, in a sign of its transfer of aid from Aden, although the Turkish Red Crescent is still active in several arears under control of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council.

Whistle-Blower Discloses Saudi Army's Secret Jail in Eastern Yemen

Saudi whistle-blower Mujtahid, who is believed to be a member of or have a well-connected source in the royal family, disclosed that the Saudi Army is controlling a secret prison in Eastern Yemen in which the inmates are tortured to death.

Mujtahid revealed on his twitter page that the secret jail is in Hadhramaut in Eastern Yemen, adding that a report by the former detainees indicates that "hundreds and maybe thousands of people are kept in this prison and a number of them have died under torture and a number of others have become disabled".

He added that the jail's conditions are not even a good place for keeping animals, noting that it is not under the supervision of the Saudi or Yemeni judiciary or international bodies.

"Those who have revealed the secret jail, ask the legal bodies, the world parliaments and international courts to force the Saudi army to go under the international supervision," Mujtahid said.

STC seizes billions of Yemeni riyals

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) forces seized Today, Saturday, billions of Yemeni riyals from the southern port of Aden.

Government sources said that forces of the STC stormed the container port in the city of Aden and looted seven containers full of banknotes in the local currency.

Local and banking sources in Aden said that the money is from the currency printed abroad and arrived in the port of Aden several days ago and it belongs to the Central Bank of Yemen (YCB).

STC says it seized money reaching terrorists in Yemen

Billions of Yemeni rials have been seized out of national duty to protect public interests and prevent further depreciation of local currency, the Southern Transitional Council (STC) said following the burglary of Central Bank-owned seven containers full of Yemeni cash.
"The self-administration gave directives to preserve a number of containers that contain banking notes printed without cover, and to prevent their entry to the Central Bank" of Yemen (CBY), STC-run economic committee said in a statement.
The seizure aims at correcting the CBY's course, ensuring that effective measures would be taken to curb increase in exchange rates, and restoring balance to reasonable levels, the statement argued.
Earlier on Saturday, forces of the Emirati-backed STC appropriated billions of Yemeni rials from the southern seaport of Aden.

"Since its relocation to Aden in September 2016, the CBY has illegally printed nearly two trillion rials without foreign money cover, leading to inflation and depreciation of local currency," the STC added.
While all these funds in its possession, the government has failed to provide basic services in Aden and other southern provinces or pay salaries of 10 months (six in 2017 and four in 2020) to southern military and security forces, it claimed.

"It's unjustified that the CBY continues transferring funds to [its branches in] Marib, Seyoun and Hodeida while they reject to transfer their revenues to Aden branch."

My comment: „reaching terrorists”: LOL: The money was to be delivered to the Hadi-government Aden Central bank. – It’s interesting that the STC separatists now agree whith the Houthi side which always had claimed that floating Yemen with these newly-printed bank notes the Hadi government supports inflation. – The STC urgently needs money: They obviously will not hold back these banknotes (which would be necessary to slow down inflation), but they will need them for their own purposes.

Guterres Freundschaftsdienst für Saudi-Arabien

UN-Generalsekretär Antonio Guterres hat am Montag im Zeichen eines Freundschaftsdienstes für Saudi-Arabien die saudische Angreifer-Koalition im Jemen von der schwarzen Liste der Verletzer von Kinderrechten genommen.

In seinem Jahresbericht an den UN-Sicherheitsrat behauptete er, die Angreifer-Koalition unter saudischer Führung werde von der schwarzen Liste gestrichen, weil sich die Zahl der Todesfälle und Amputationen bei jemenitischen Kindern durch Luftangriffe der arabischen Koalition verringert hätte.

Weiter behauptete er, diese Koalition unter saudischer Führung habe Maßnahmen ergriffen um Kinder zu schützen.

Im Oktober 2017 hatte die UNO die arabische Angreiferkoalition im Jemen aufgrund der Tötung von mindestens 683 jemenitischen Kindern und dutzenden Angriffen auf Schulen im Jemen auf die schwarze Liste der Verletzung von Kinderrechen gesetzt.

Es ist nicht das erste Mal, dass der Name von Saudi-Arabien auf diese Liste gesetzt bzw. von ihr gestrichen wurde.

Saudi-led coalition cut from U.N. blacklist of warring parties killing children

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday removed a Saudi Arabia-led military coalition from a United Nations blacklist, several years after it was first named and shamed for killing and injuring children in Yemen.

The coalition killed or injured 222 children in Yemen last year, Guterres wrote in his annual report to the U.N. Security Council. He said the Houthis were responsible for 313 such casualties and the Yemen government forces 96 casualties and both remain on the annual children and armed conflict blacklist.

Guterres said the coalition would “be delisted for the violation of killing and maiming, following a sustained significant decrease in killing and maiming due to air strikes” and the implementation of measures aimed at protecting children.

But he added that the coalition would be subjected to one year of monitoring and “any failure” to further decrease child casualties would result in it being listed again next year.

“The Secretary-General is adding a new level of shame to his ‘list of shame’ by removing the Saudi-led coalition and ignoring the U.N.’s own evidence of continued grave violations against children,” said Jo Becker, children’s rights advocacy director for Human Rights Watch, said in a statement.

The Saudi-led military coalition has officially been on the blacklist for the past three years.

It had been briefly added to the blacklist in 2016 and then removed by former Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon pending review. At the time, Ban accused Saudi Arabia of exerting “unacceptable” undue pressure after sources told Reuters that Riyadh threatened to cut some U.N. funding. Saudi Arabia denied threatening Ban.

When asked if the U.N. had come under any pressure to remove the Saudi-led coalition from the list this year, the U.N. envoy for children and armed conflict, Virginia Gamba, told reporters: “I can answer that very, very clearly - absolutely not.”

UN chief takes Saudis off blacklist for harming Yemen’s kids

Adrianne Lapar, director of Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict, an international advocacy group, said that by removing the Saudi-led coalition, which also includes the United Arab Emirates, “the secretary-general sends the message that powerful actors can get away with killing children.”

She called for an independent and transparent assessment of the process of de-listing the coalition, “to ensure that all violators are held to the same standard, no matter who they or their friends are.” Gamba replied in response to a question on whether Saudi Arabia offered the U.N. any incentives to get off the list, “absolutely not.”

Anger as Saudi-led coalition cut from UN blacklist of warring parties killing children

Announcement comes on same day as four children reported killed in a coalition airstrike on a vehicle in Saada province

Campaigners reacted angrily on Monday after UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres removed the Saudi-led military coalition from a United Nations blacklist, several years after it was first named and shamed for killing and injuring children in Yemen.

"The Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen will be delisted for the violation of killing and maiming, following a sustained significant decrease... due to air strikes," said the UN's newly-published annual report on children in conflict zones.

Human Rights Watch denounced Guterres for dropping the coalition from the "list of shame," saying he was "ignoring the UN's own evidence of continued grave violations against children".

The Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict said that "by absolving the Saudi- and Emirati-led coalition of any responsibility for killing and maiming children in Yemen, the UN Secretary-General has left children vulnerable to further attacks".

Inger Ashing of Save the Children called it a "shocking decision" by Guterres.

Save the Children described the move as "premature and dangerous".

Human Rights Watch: UN Chief’s ‘List of Shame’ Drops Saudi-Led Coalition

The United Nations secretary-general removed the Saudi-led coalition from his latest “list of shame” despite continued grave violations against children in Yemen, Human Rights Watch said today. He also ignored violations by other powerful countries, including Russia, the United States, and Israel, by omitting them from his list.

“The secretary-general has brought shame on the UN by removing the Saudi-led coalition from his ‘list of shame’ even as it continues to kill and injure children in Yemen,” said Jo Becker, children’s rights advocacy director at Human Rights Watch. “He has repeatedly and inexcusably left powerful countries off his list despite overwhelming UN evidence of grave violations against children.”

The secretary-general’s approach to the list is at odds with his “Call to Action on Human Rights” that he announced earlier this year, Human Rights Watch said.

Arab Coalition welcomes delisting from the annexes of the Children and Armed Conflict report

The members of the Arab Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen has welcomed the decision by the UN Secretary-General to remove the Coalition from the annexes of his report on Children and Armed Conflict.
The long-due decision recognizes the Coalition's unwavering commitment to protecting all civilians in armed conflict — especially children — and the preventative and protective measures the Coalition has taken to strengthen the protection of children in Yemen, Saudi Arabia’s mission to the UN said in a statement on Tuesday.
These efforts included the establishment of a Child Protection Unit, the adoption of additional precautionary measures, efforts to reunite, with their families, children recruited by the Houthis, and provide them with health, psychological and education services.

“We do not have any restrictions, or an agenda that we fear will appear in front of the media," he added. "We presented a comprehensive solution document that contains all the solutions. We called for handing over salaries and taking a team to the Safer floating storage. We called for complete solutions, not segmented or solutions for media consumption only."

He pointed out that until now there is no response from the countries of aggression. “What is happening today is delay. They are unable to implement. We are presenting the initiatives and presenting realistic solutions, and they refuse to implement them."

[Sanaa government] National Reconciliation: UN Waging Psychological War against Yemenis

The United Nations has been waging a psychological war against the assaulted and besieged Yemeni people for more than five years, the Head of the Comprehensive National Reconciliation and Political Solution Team has confirmed.

“The United Nations is waging a professional, inhuman war represented by media statements and monitoring the internal situation of the Yemeni people in depth and in all directions. It suffices with media warnings rather than stopping the siege and aggression,” Youssef Al-Fishi said in a statement on Friday.

Al-Fishi pointed out that the UN covers the issue of detaining food, drug and oil derivatives ships near the port of Hodeidah, by releasing a ship before each briefing in the Security Council sessions and commends Saudi Arabia for facilitating the entry of supplies.

"Does the United Nations think that the Yemeni people will wait and die of starvation until the next briefing comes," he said “Instead of holding the US and Saudi Arabia responsible for the collapse of the health system in Yemen, the UN tip them to continue their siege and aggression.”

The Head of the National Reconciliation Team called on the United Nations to have an active role in supporting national reconciliation in Yemen, as supporting the national reconciliation efforts is a responsibility that should be within its tasks and activities in a way that helps prevent conflicts, as it is also the responsibility of the international community.

Princess Basmah Bint Saud bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, 56, a businesswoman and a granddaughter of the country’s founding king, Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud, was taken from her home in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in March last year and imprisoned along with her daughter, Souhoud Al-Sharif, 28, the family confidant told NBC News.

Denmark summons Saudi envoy over alleged Iranian-Arab separatist plot

Saudi ambassador is called to Danish Foreign Ministry after terror charges are levied against three leaders of separatist group

The Danish Foreign Ministry summoned the Saudi ambassador on Wednesday after terrorism charges were brought against three leaders of an Iranian-Arab separatist group based in Denmark.

The three men - all members of Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahwaz (ASMLA) - are suspected of having received funds from Saudi Arabia.

Still, it was unclear why the Saudi ambassador had been summoned in connection with the case.

Danish police said the three men were being prosecuted "for financing and promoting terrorism in Iran, including in collaboration with a Saudi intelligence service".

Saudis see high hopes for 2020 upended by pandemic

“It’s unfortunate, but I think that some of the sectors that Saudi Arabia was most interested in going into are going to be hit hard,” said Bessma Momani, a professor of Middle East studies at the University of Waterloo in Canada. “If you look at the investment that was being announced and part of the construction effort, a lot of it included theater venues, concert halls... That’s really under risk.”

With Saudi cities under curfew and the country’s borders shut, even the upcoming hajj pilgrimage in Mecca could be cancelled or dramatically pared down. The hajj, which starts in late July this year, has not been cancelled in the 90 years since Saudi Arabia’s founding.

The hajj not only provides Saudi Arabia with immense influence and prestige among Muslims, it also generates around $6 billion in revenue for the government annually.

Since early April, Mecca has been under a strict 24-hour curfew. The Grand Mosque there housing the cube-shaped Kaaba, Islam’s holiest site, is closed to the public, and the smaller, year-round umrah pilgrimages have been suspended.

The impact of the coronavirus and low oil prices have forced a recalibration of Prince Mohammed’s ambitious plans to revamp the oil-dependent economy, which is expected to contract 3% this year.

Cuts of at least $8 billion are being made to the crown prince’s mega-projects, like a futuristic city in the desert called Neom and luxury tourism resorts along the Red Sea.

Revenue from oil is expected to generate just $133 billion in 2020 for Saudi Arabia, down 34% from last year and down 58% from highs in 2013, according to research by Jadwa Investment.

The seismic blows have also curtailed the state’s largesse of subsidies and welfare for citizens.

Senators Ask Pompeo to Boost U.S. Support for Yemen Peace Effort

A bipartisan group of U.S. senators asked Secretary of State Michael Pompeo to pressure Saudi Arabia and Yemen’s president to accept a UN envoy’s push for a broad cease-fire and move toward political talks to end the conflict.

In a letter to Pompeo on Tuesday, the nine senators said the U.S. is uniquely positioned to bring together all sides for talks given its influence with Saudi Arabia, where Yemen President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi is now based. They said the threat of Covid-19 brings new urgency to a peace process that has so far been overseen by United Nations special envoy Martin Griffiths.

“Your interventions were important to securing past interim agreements,” the group, which includes Connecticut Democrat Chris Murphy and Indiana Republican Todd Young, said in a letter Tuesday. “We now believe that sustained, high-level U.S. engagement is necessary to finally put an end to this devastating civil war.”

Iran Categorically Rejects UN Allegations of Sending Weapons to Yemen

Iran's foreign ministry strongly dismissed the UN allegations that the cruise missiles used in several attacks on oil facilities and an international airport in Saudi Arabia last year were of Iranian origin.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran categorically rejects the allegations of the UN Secretariat, which is clearly under political pressure from the US and Saudi regimes, expresses its deep concern over the abuse of the UN Secretariat for political purposes," the foreign ministry said in a statement on Friday.

"While the Secretariat, based on an unusual interpretation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231, has so far refrained from reporting on numerous violations by the United States and European States with respect to UN Security Council Resolution 2231 and the JCPOA (Annex A to the Resolution) inter alia the unlawful withdrawal of the United States from the JCPOA, which is a grave violation of Resolution 2231 and its subsequent illegal actions towards UN Security Council Resolution 2231 by re-imposition of sanctions, the Secretariat treated with utmost tolerance and leniency. Surprisingly, the Secretariat is engaged with the issue in which it has no authority to point out highly technical and legal findings, and its so-called technical report is in no way in line with the practical arrangements of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 to perform its functions."

It noted that the Secretariat's report coincides with the US destructive plan which is reflected within the dangerous draft resolution that paves the way for extension of arms restrictions on Iran in an illegal way, adding, "and yet more surprisingly, the content of this report is used by the US two weeks prior to its official release. The aforementioned fact creates the impression that the report was prepared under direction of the United States and to be used in the efforts of that State in the Security Council against Iran."

UAE Targets Turkey and Qatar in the Mediterranean

Europe is progressively being sucked into the Middle East and North Africa’s myriad conflicts. As if wars on its doorstep in Libya and Syria were not enough, UAE support for an Eastern Mediterranean pipeline that could hurt Qatar economically — combined with Greek, Cypriot and French opposition to Turkish moves — leaves Europe with few, if any, options but to get involved.

Proxy wars that pit the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt against Qatar and Turkey have spilled out of Libya and Syria into the Eastern Mediterranean as a whole.

European nations, including France, Greece, and Cyprus, feel threatened by Turkey’s use of Libya to extend its grip on gas-rich regional waters in violation of international law. As a result, Middle Eastern and North African disputes are becoming European problems.

Report : The dangers of Adolescent Countries ... the UAE as a Model

The United Arab Emirates gives itself a place greater than its size. Like the colonial powers, the UAE intervenes in more than one Arab country in a desperate attempt to overcome a feeling of inferiority that this tiny state lives in. Neither history nor civilization does the UAE have, existing in societies or countries that had records of civilizations and glorious history in the Arab region.

This devilish micro state exploits the huge oil revenues to implement agendas exceeding its size. It intervenes militarily in Libya and economically in Algeria that the latter drove it out. It conspires against Syria and tries to find a foothold in the Republic of Yemeni, expressing its greediness in Yemen's ports, especially in Yemen's Socotra archipelago.

This foundling tiny state practiced and going on disgraceful actions in many Arab and Islamic countries, losing all the foundations and morals of Arab and Islamic values; this comes as a natural result of a weak and adolescent political leadership as it puts its capabilities and wealth under the supervision of the intelligence services of the United States, Israeli and other Western countries to implement their agendas in tearing the Arab countries apart.

The UAE has widely opened the door of foreign workers without taking employment measure controls or taking into account the privacy of the Emirati citizen, including his Arab and Islamic affiliation so that the foreign presence on its lands and the other Gulf countries as well have become just a matter of time in the future, and the existence itself which would portend a real disaster and it could be achieved

Is there a future for the GCC?

Nearly four decades later, however, there is every reason to challenge the assumption that the GCC in its current form is a necessary or even relevant organization. The “GCC seems to have lost the very foundations of its existence,” Dr. Marwan Kabalan, Director of Policy Analysis, Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies, recently argued. “With no shared values or common interests and without agreement on threat perceptions, there seems to be very little impetus left for the block to remain.”

The blockade of Qatar, which began three years ago, has exposed the GCC as an entirely dormant institution. Considering that three member-states linked up with Egypt (a non-GCC country) to impose a siege on Qatar, which was a founding GCC member, it is entirely evident that the institution lacks any teeth. Moreover, this was the second time in three years that the GCC has been unable to prevent three of its member states from turning on a fourth, after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the UAE withdrew their ambassadors from Doha for nine months in 2014.

Doha’s perception of the Saudi/Emirati axis posing a threat, as well Riyadh and Abu Dhabi’s view of Qatar as a menace, will not change regardless of how the GCC evolves — or perhaps disintegrates — as an organization in the upcoming future. Nonetheless, Qatar, or any member-state, leaving the sub-regional institution would be extremely symbolic and illustrative of the fact that Arab Gulf unity is merely a concept on paper that no longer exists in practice.

The Lure of Blood Money

Arms sales to countries in the Yemen conflict continue, despite violations of human rights and conditions of transfer.

Long before the launch of Operation Decisive Storm, and even before the uprising that led to Saleh’s resignation in 2011, Yemen was already an arms-trafficking hub. What is new today, is the types and quantities of weapons available in the country. Arms markets exist from Houthi-controlled San‘a to the provisional capital of Aden, in an area now controlled by the Emirati-backed Southern Transitional Council.

International arms transfers normally come with binding end-user certificates. These certify that the buyer is the sole user of the weapons and materials purchased. The transfer of any item to third parties is categorically prohibited. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have been repeatedly accused of violating their end-user certificates by providing material—including U.S. and European military hardware—to members of their military coalition, President ‘Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi’s forces, and more notably the National Resistance Forces (NRF). The NRF consists of armed proxy groups such as the Giants Brigade and the Abu ‘Abbas Brigade, a Salafi militia with ties to Al-Qa‘eda.

A CNN report in 2019 provoked shock when videos surfaced showing competing factions in Yemen armed with American weaponry that had originally been sent to Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Sources from within the NRF have said that they would often sell their weapons when they were short on cash, as it was common for them to not receive their salaries. Still, the Arab coalition denies accusations that it has supplied such groups with U.S. and European weapons.

The European Union’s official website claims that “EU foreign and security policy seeks to preserve peace” and “develop and consolidate … respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.”

Still, weapons sales to the Gulf states have not been interrupted.

Ironically, the weapons that the United States sends to allies in the Gulf may well end up being used against Americans, considering that a significant quantity now lies in the hands of its enemies. However, the Trump administration is already seeking out new multi-billion dollar arms deals – by Alexander Muller

Report: UAE draining billions of dollars in armament contracts

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has drained an important part of its financial liquidity in armaments over the past ten years, yet it has not participated in any official military operations, except in Yemen.

However, the UAE’s interventions in countries such as Libya has made it a major sponsor of war there and the escalation of political and security tensions against international efforts to extinguish the war that has been raging for years.

UAE imports reached $4.98 billion in the last five years, coinciding with its war in Yemen, as part of an international coalition.

The data does not include any additional expenditures on its military forces, or the financing of any tensions, whether in Libya or Yemen.

Data from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) show that the numbers come despite the decline in the UAE’s arms imports by 46 per cent in 2019 ($644 million), after increasing by 24 per cent in 2018 ($1.2 billion).

UAE imports reached $4.98 billion in the last five years, coinciding with its war in Yemen, as part of an international coalition.

According to a report by Anadolu Agency, the US has acquired nearly two thirds of the value of the weapons the UAE has imported during this period, as its share amounted to $3.37 billion, representing 67.7 per cent of the imports during the five years.

Yemeni rial suffers further decline

The Yemeni rial in government-held areas decreased on Sunday to lowest level in one year and a half.
One US dollar is purchased with 755 and a Saudi real with 198 YRs in provinces controlled by the official government, said banking sources.
"The rial value also dropped, but more slightly, in Houthi-held areas, where one dollar is bought with 619 and one Saudi real with 164 YRs," the sources added.
For one week, the Yemeni currency has gradually depreciated by nearly 50 YRs per one dollar, particularly in government-held areas.
Prices of goods have resultantly increased, with people complaining a significant upsurge in food prices.
The YR reached this 755 lowest level late in 2018, before seeing improvement.

Money exchangers close doors in Yemen's interim capital as Riyal collapses

The Riyal always depreciation during the past six years of war but when Saudi deposits dry up from the central bank, like this time, the depreciation picks up the pace. From YR 700 versus one dollar, the Riyal plunged to YR 744 over the past two days. Weary money exchangers closed off.

Lingerie designer: ‘I use headless mannequins so my male customers don’t get too excited’

Some of her largest obstacles have been sourcing materials such as straps, hooks, clips and such for bras, underwear, corsets and garter belts. Even in women’s clothing stores, the employees are largely men. When Sala presents a zoomed-in photo of a hook for a garter belt to show the man behind the counter what she wants, they react the same, according to Sala. One hundred percent of the time.

“They always zoom out, without fail. It’s like, I’m showing you a zoomed-in picture. Is it really necessary to zoom out to see the partially clothed woman?”

Sala said discussing such things, even in the context of a business transaction in a clothing store, is always embarrassing. Inevitably, the man behind the counter demands to know what the heck kind of clothing she’s designing.

When your business is lingerie, discussing designs can be tricky, even with women.

“I notice that a lot of women first want to know if I’m married, before they feel comfortable describing a specific design.”

In 2018, a foundation wanted to highlight Sala as an example of a successful female business that was founded after the start of Yemen’s civil war. But the foundation faced a dilemma: how to advertise Sala’s lingerie company without advertising the lingerie, which they found inappropriate for their brochures. In the end, they were unable to do so.

Yemen aims to raise oil output 25% within months, minister says

Yemen aims to raise its crude oil production by 25% to 75,000 barrels per day in the coming months, the energy minister of the country’s internationally-recognised government said.

Saudi-backed Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi’s government controls the eastern and southern areas where Yemen’s oil-and-gas fields are located, while the Iranian-aligned Houthi group controls the capital Sanaa and the oil terminal of Ras Issa on the Red Sea.

“The oil ministry has put forward a plan to re-export crude oil from all oil fields in Marib and Shabwa ... and we have succeeded in rehabilitating al-Nashama oil port on the Arabian Sea,” Hadi’s government energy minister Aws Abdullah al-Awd told Reuters in an interview.

Strange web of foes and allies of ISIS, al-Qaeda in Yemen

The disappearance of many of the experienced leaders in al-Qaeda strengthens the influence and rise of ISIS, which is much more radical and brutal than al-Qaeda.

Contrary to the common belief that terrorist organisations tend to take advantage of any security vacuum to expand their presence, ISIS and al-Qaeda affiliates in Yemen seem to have caught the ‘splintering’ bug affecting all parties and political fronts in Yemen.

According to Mushir al-Mashraei, a Yemini researcher specialising in jihadist groups, the two extremist organisations are not only involved in longstanding and chronic conflicts, they suffer from their own internal wars as well.

Al-Mashraei told The Arab Weekly that al-Qaeda in Yemen, or what is known as al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, has shrunk dramatically in recent years and lost control of many provinces due to the military operations launched against it by the Arab coalition.

Meshraei also noted the emergence of a new generation of leaders in al-Qaeda in particular following the death of the traditional leaders in drone attacks by the United States, which has considerably reduced the organisation’s ability to carry out significant operations, the new leaders being less experienced and less dangerous than the previous ones.

Meshraei added that Yemeni al-Qaeda’s relationship with al-Qaeda central, led by Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s successor, and the ties of ISIS affiliates in Yemen with the main organisation in Iraq and the Levant are strong.

Meshraei noted that, as an emerging organisation in Yemen with less financial resources than al-Qaeda, ISIS in Yemen is still more dependent on its leaders in Iraq and Syria, whether in terms of armament, the appointment of leaders or even concluding agreements with the local tribes.

The local branches, however, are not immune to internal divisions and conflicts.

Many Yemeni researchers focusing on terror organisations believe the disappearance of many experienced al-Qaeda leaders strengthens the influence and rise of ISIS, which is much more radical and brutal than al-Qaeda. So far, the Yemeni branch of ISIS has not announced the death of any of its leaders or disclosed that its known bases in Yemen have been hit by US drone attacks. Such attacks played an important role in dismantling al-Qaeda in Yemen.

Mashraei said he had no explanation for why the Americans had so far spared ISIS leaders and bases in Yemen even as ISIS elements moved freely and openly in their areas of deployment and their camps at Qifat Redaa are known to all, in addition to their frequent appearance in gatherings, weddings and religious ceremonies, and even near Houthi areas.

In the same context, the Yemeni researcher does not question rumours of a suspicious relationship between the Houthis and ISIS in Yemen. He is convinced the two parties are coordinating, as revealed by detailed information from various media sources and Qifah residents.

WHY YEMEN MATTERS

The stability of Yemen is not, in and of itself, one of our core national interests. Yet we continue to aid the Saudis in their war against the Houthis. Supported by international navies, we continue to patrol international waters in the southern Red Sea and Gulf of Aden. We are still pursuing Al Qaeda and ISIS throughout poorly governed regions in Yemen. Why? The answer is pragmatism.

While it is not practical, nor advisable, for the United States to commit blood and treasure to unilaterally resolve Yemen’s civil war, the instability that spills over Yemen’s borders threatens American interests. Now, with the STC potentially pitting its Emirati backers against the Saudis, who recognize the Republic of Yemen Government led by exiled President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, the risk of Yemen’s festering instability igniting a larger regional conflict is greater than ever.

A Proxy Conflict Turns Central

Although a proxy war between Arab states, both of whom the United States relies on for critical military and economic access, would implicitly run counter to American interests, a hypothetical regional conflict still doesn’t explain why Yemen matters today.

These attacks by the Houthis are generally aimed at the Saudi-led coalition (which does not include the United States), but the use of these weapons near international shipping lanes in the southern Red Sea threaten core national interests in maintaining the free flow of global commerce. The Houthis have credibly threatened to contest the Strait of Bab al Mandeb by attacking international shipping in recent years

Houthi ballistic missile and drone attacks in Saudi Arabia and the UAE threaten critical energy infrastructure, not to mention American citizens and military forces throughout the region.

Conclusion

Yemen and Saudi Arabia may be toxic topics in Washington, but ignoring them could be disastrous. If COVID-19 is the domino that turns a humanitarian crisis into widespread fatalities, the United States may be compelled to intervene at great cost and risk. In the event of armed conflict with Iran, western Yemen would be a second front and a second contested maritime chokepoint. Not only would ignoring Yemen allow threats to American interests to grow, it would jeopardize U.S. influence over a key partner in the global energy market.

‘Houthi religious tax only the latest episode in 1300 year history of robbing Yemenis’

The Yemeni female activist Arawa al-Khattabi has described the one-fifth percent tax law enacted by the Houthi militia in northwest Yemen as “only the latest episode in a 1300-year history of robbing Yemenis” by the Zaydi theocratic rulers.

In a seminar organized by the Yemeni Coalition for Women here on Tuesday, al-Khattabi said the latest dynastical regime of Hameed Addeeen household 1918-1962 was so deeply involved in confiscating people’s private money that the Yemeni people at that time experienced a massive famine.

When will Congress get us out of Yemen?

Congress should support the Saudis in Yemen until the Iranian proxies are defeated

The debate is seemingly endless as is the war in Yemen. Isn’t there a case to be made for the proposition that we and our Saudi allies should just walk away from Yemen? Is it really worth continuing this struggle just to keep a group of ragtag mountain bandits from seizing control of a desolate corner of the Arabian Peninsula half a world away?

What would a Houthi takeover in Yemen mean?

To begin with it would mean that a nation of almost 30 million people with an extensive land border with Saudi Arabia would fall under the control of a group that is a proxy force for Iran, armed, trained and in many cases directed by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

Saudi Arabia cannot accept such an eventuality. We may fantasize momentarily that we can walk away from Yemen and not face the consequences. The Saudis cannot. If we do not sell them arms and stand with them, they will be forced of necessity to go elsewhere in search of arms. That likely means Moscow and another opportunity for Vladimir Putin to gain ground and influence at our expense.

A Houthi takeover of Yemen would not simply be a problem for Saudi Arabia, as profound as such a threat might be. Iran, increasingly allied with China, is already in a position to threaten to close the Straits of Hormuz to all international shipping. Houthi control of the eastern shores of the Bab el Mandab would mean Iranian control of the Suez Canal and the Red Sea

This is not an idle threat. The Houthis, with Iranian assistance, have demonstrated their ability to target ships at sea, including U.S. naval vessels with cruise missiles.

When will Congress get us out of Yemen? Let’s hope it’s not until the job is done and the Houthis are defeated – by Sam Faddis, a former CIA operations officer with experience in the conduct of intelligence operations in the Middle East, South Asia and Europe, a senior analyst at Ravenna Associates, a strategic communications company.

Yemen: Saudi-led coalition strikes Houthi-held base

Coalition conducts three airstrikes against Houthi militias at al-Daylami airbase near Sana'a's international airport

Saudi-led coalition warplanes struck a military airbase Tuesday that was held by Yemen’s Shia Houthi militia near the capital, Sana'a, according to military sources.

Coalition forces carried out airstrikes against Houthi militias at al-Daylami airbase near Sanaa’s international airport, a military source told Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity.

The source did not provide information on the results of the attack.

Coalition forces conducted three airstrikes near the airport, said a Houthi spokesperson, according to the Houthi-operated Al Masirah satellite TV channel.

No information was disclosed about casualties and coalition forces have not yet released a statement on the incidents.

Airstrike in Yemen Kills 13, Including 4 Children: Save the Children Statement

“We’re horrified to learn of the deaths of 13 civilians, including four children, today in Yemen. Their car was bombed while they were returning from a local market in Razeh. Our team contacted the hospital in Sa’ada immediately to offer support, but unfortunately it was too late.

“It’s a very sad irony that this attack happened on the day that the annual UN report on Children and Armed Conflict is coming out. In it, the Saudi and Emirati led coalition – which was previously listed for the killing and maiming of children – is let off by the UN Secretary-General, in effect giving them a pass to continue their business as usual. The attack shows that such a decision is far too premature. Children are still dying from bombs almost daily.

[Sanaa gov. army] Air Force conducts massive operations in Khamis Mushait, Saudi Arabia

Yemen's Air Force conducted massive operations against Saudi enemy military targets in Khamis Mushait, a city in south-west Saudi Arabia, located east of Abha, the provincial seat of the Asir province.

The Air Force carried out massive operations on Monday evening against the Saudi planes, armories, and other sensitive military targets in Khamis Mushait with five type 2K drones, the Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier-General Yahya Saree told Saba.

Saree stated the Air Force operations hit their targets accurately, indicating such operations came in response to the massive air escalation and its continuous and successive massacres carried out by the aggression against the innocent Yemeni people.

Statement by the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen COL Turki Al-Malki
“Further to the statement issued by the Joint Forces Command of the Coalition in regards to the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia’s attempt to target civilians and civilian objects in (Khamis Mushait) earlier this morning, joint forces of the Coalition have intercepted and destroyed this evening multiple bomb-laden UAVs launched by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia toward civilians and civilian objects in (Aseer) province

The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen: Joint Coalition Forces Intercept and Destroy a bomb-laden Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Launched by the Terrorist Iran-backed Houthi Militia in an Attempt to Target Civilians and Civilian Objects in (Khamis Mushait)

Statement by the Official Spokesman of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen COL Turki Al-Malki
“Coalition forces have successfully intercepted and destroyed today, Monday, a bomb-laden UAV launched by the terrorist Iran-backed Houthi militia to deliberately target civilians and civilian objects in (Khamis Mushait).
This terrorist act is an extension of the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia’s terrorist attempts to target innocent civilians and civilian objects, the most recent was the attempt to target civilians and civilian objects in (Najran) with a ballistic missile on (13 June 2020). The continuation of the Houthi militia in its hostile, terrorist acts using bomb-laden UAVs to target innocent civilians is a blatant violation of the customary International Humanitarian Law.

https://www.spa.gov.sa/viewfullstory.php?lang=en&newsid=2098329

My comment: The Saudis better should stop such odd propaganda statements. At Khamis Mushait, there is the main Saudi air base from where the fighter jets bombing Yemen are starting. Saudi air raids are much more “terrorist”, they really kill civilians, as happened the same day.

The Joint Forces Command of the Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen: Interception and Destruction of A Ballistic Missile Launched by the Terrorist Iran-Backed Houthi Militia Toward the Kingdom

“In continuation of the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia’s terrorist attempts to target innocent civilians in (Najran) with a number of UAVs on (May 27th, 2020), and the terrorist attack targeting innocent civilians in (Khamis Mushait) with two UAVs on (June 1st, 2020), the Joint Forces Command of the Coalition has successfully this morning (Saturday) intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile launched by the terrorist, Iran-backed Houthi militia from (Sa’dah) governorate, deliberately targeting innocent civilians and civilian objects in (Najran), minor injuries were sustained by civilians as a result of debris of the intercepted ballistic missile.

https://www.spa.gov.sa/viewfullstory.php?lang=en&newsid=2097709

My comment: At Khamis Mushait, there is the main Saudi air base for fighter jets bombing Yemen. Thus, this was no “attempt to target innocent civilians”. It’s a joke that in this statement the wording “terrorist” is used seven times – exactly describing Saudi warfare against Yemen.

Houthi-laid landmines continue killing civilians in Yemen's Hodeidah

Two children were killed on Tuesday in a blast by a Houthi-laid landmine in Yemen's Red Sea port city of Hodeidah, a government official told Xinhua.

The two children who were heading back to their residential house died in Hodeidah's district of Tuhyata as a result of the explosion of a landmine laid previously by the Houthi rebels, the local official said on condition of anonymity.

Meanwhile, another source of Hodeidah's pro-government authority said many victims including child survivors of mine and other explosive accidents are in a pressing need to get assistance from humanitarian organizations.

Houthis blame UN for destroyed Stockholm Agreement

The United Nations and its Security Council have not borne the responsibility for the ongoing war in the Yemeni western governorate of Hodeida, Houthi member in the Hodeida Redeployment Coordination Committee (RCC) said Sunday.
Arbitrary actions by the "aggression countries against oil and food vessels should be ended," General Qadiri added in remarks carried by the Houthi-run al-Masyra TV.
The UN has not presented evidence that it care for the Yemeni people, he said, as "the heralds of humanity don't respond to Yemen's suffering .. and aggression forces want to abolish the Sweden pact.
"Sustainability of hospitals and services in Yemen, Hodeida in particular, depends on fuel detained in the sea" by the coalition, Qadiri said.
It was agreed with government representatives to open humanitarian corridors. While the group "took the lead and opened passages in Hais, the UN mission was denied access to Doraihimi" by government forces, the Houthi official claimed.

Film: Yemen: The Last Lunch | Al Jazeera World

Details surrounding the political assassination of Ibrahim al-Hamdi, president of North Yemen, in 1977 are stranger than fiction. Al-Hamdi, viewed by many as a reformer and modernist, came to power in a bloodless coup in June 1974 at a time when Yemen was divided into two countries: North Yemen, where al-Hamdi was president and Marxist South Yemen. As a moderniser, al-Hamdi pushed for Yemeni unification and was due to travel to Aden to meet with his southern counterpart in October 1977. Two days before that meeting was due to take place, al-Hamdi was invited to lunch at the home of his army commander Ahmed al-Ghashmi. On arrival, al-Hamdi was taken past the dignitaries and brought to a room where on the floor lay the body of his brother. According to an eyewitness, al-Hamdi was then murdered at the scene. The exact details of his death remain a mystery.
