Jemen steht kurz vor der Hungersnot

Essen, Trinkwasser, sanitäre Anlagen, Krankenversorgung: An alldem fehlt es im vom Bürgerkrieg ins Chaos gestürzten Jemen. Mehr als 80 Prozent der Bevölkerung sind auf Hilfe angewiesen. Die Uno schlägt deshalb Alarm. Für den vom Bürgerkrieg zerrütteten Jemen haben die Vereinten Nationen die höchste Nothilfestufe 3 ausgerufen. Die Stufe 3 gilt nur für drei andere Staaten: Syrien, Irak und Südsudan.

31 tote Zivilisten im Jemen: Huthi-Rebellen zielen auf Wohngebiet

Die Kämpfe im Jemen gehen unvermindert weiter. Die jüngsten Angriffe durch die Aufständischen auf ein Wohngebiet in Aden fordern zahlreiche zivile Opfer. Zudem verschlechtert sich die humanitäre Lage im Land zusehends. Bei einem Angriff von Huthi-Rebellen und verbündeten Gruppen auf ein Wohngebiet im jemenitischen Aden sind mehr als 30 Zivilisten getötet worden. Ein Sprecher der regierungstreuen Truppen sagte, die Rebellen hätten den Bezirk Al-Mansura mit 15 Katjuscha-Raketen beschossen.

The incident is the biggest in a series of prison breaks that have freed Yemeni militants in recent years and signals the further erosion of the state amid a raging civil war.

"Groups of al Qaeda supporters ... today attacked the central prison in the city of Taiz and more than 1,200 of the dangerous prisoners escaped," state news agency Saba quoted a security official as saying.

Yemen: Unlawful Airstrikes Kill Dozens of Civilians. Coalition Forces Bomb Houses, Markets in Saada City

Saudi Arabia-led coalition forces have carried out airstrikes killing dozens of civilians in Saada City, in northern Yemen, since April 2015 in apparent violation of the laws of war, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. The coalition should investigate all alleged laws-of-war violations and provide compensation and other redress to civilian victims as appropriate.

The 47-page report, “Targeting Saada: Unlawful Coalition Airstrikes on Saada in Yemen,” documents a dozen airstrikes on the Houthi stronghold that destroyed or damaged civilian homes, five markets, a school, and a petrol station, though there was no evidence these sites were being used for military purposes. These strikes killed 59 people, reported to have been civilians between April 6 and May 11. At least 35 children were among those killed.

Human Rights Watch investigated six strikes on houses used as residences and an empty school in Saada. In the deadliest incident, on the evening of May 5, coalition aircraft dropped several bombs on a cultural center and an adjacent house, killing 27 members of the al-Ibbi family, including 17 children.

Coalition aircraft also bombed five markets and a petrol station crowded with motorists lined up to fill their vehicles. Not only were these attacks unlawful because of the apparent absence of any military target, but they contributed to civilian hardship in the city, where people are suffering from shortages of food, water, and fuel. The United Nations has warned of a looming humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen

The United States is not a member of the Saudi Arabia-led coalition but it provides “logistical and intelligence support” for its campaign and may assist with direct targeting support. The United States and other coalition supporters should press the coalition to abide by its international legal obligations and investigate alleged violations in any attack in which they played a direct role.

The Saudi-Houthi Stalemate In Yemen

The parties to the conflict in Yemen could implement this transitional plan if the political will exists to recognize the current stalemate and mitigate its fallout. Each side has to be convinced of the impossibility of achieving their maximalist goals. A UN envoy, or another mediator working alongside, would have the international backing to credibly promise each of the Yemeni parties the benefits of cooperation or the threat of indefinite warfare and opposition to their goals should they continue the fight. A diplomatic failure in Yemen means not only the death of its people but also the death of a cultural heritage that has survived millennia, the suffocation of yet another democratic experiment in the Arab world, and the perpetuation of the destructive and meaningless struggle of Saudi Arabia and Iran for regional supremacy – by Nabeel Khoury

Satellite Images Of Yemen Indicate Level Of Destruction And Implication For Recovery

The war in Yemen has generated a dire humanitarian situation with massive destruction to the country’s infrastructure. UNDP and the Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT) of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), released satellite images illustrating damage and destruction to Sana’a, Aden and Sa’ada. According to initial detailed analysis of satellite imagery, as of May 10th in Aden, May 15 in Sana’a and May 17 in Sa’ada, at least 2323 building structures have been destroyed since the commencement of violence in March. Markets, buildings, roads and bridges along with private homes and businesses, public infrastructure and institutions have been completely or partially destroyed as a result of the fighting. The airports in Sana’a, Aden and Sa’ada as well as Aden’s main port have been particularly damaged. Additionally, a total of 22 medical facilities in Sana’a, Aden and Sa’ada were within a 100 meters radius of damaged or destroyed buildings, with the possibility of a more facilities sustaining damages as the violence continues. Images of visible lights at night over Western part of Yemen – taken on May 12 and compared to March 20, prior to the violence eruption – 25% less power usage.

Satellite images of the damage in Sana’a, Aden and Sa’ada indicate the level of needed reconstruction efforts in the country. In this context, UNDP is working on empowering communities by supporting and promoting early recovery to help Yeminis transition from humanitarian relief to self-sustainable development – by Fakhri Al-Arashi

The Geneva Negotiations Failed Because the Aggressors Wanted Them to Fail: Why the Yemen Peace Talks Collapsed

But in all the talk of ‘mutual recriminations’ and ‘intransigence on both sides’, it is important not to lose sight of the fact that these talks failed because the aggressors – that is, the Saudi-led and British-US sponsored ‘coalition’ bombing the country – wanted them to fail.

The central fact is that the ceasefire proposed by UN Secretary-general Ban-Ki Moon – a basic condition for peace talks everywhere – was blocked by the Saudis. The Houthis, naturally enough, refused to negotiate whilst the Saudis were still bombing. The Saudis refused to stop bombing until the Houthis withdrew from all the cities they captured during the war. In other words, whilst the Houthis sought a mutual ceasefire, the Saudis demanded nothing less than abject surrender as the precondition for negotiations. Given that the Houthis have suffered very few territorial losses since the Saudis began bombing in March, this was obviously never going to happen.

The anti-Houthi side, in other words, had no intention of either negotiating or accepting a ceasefire themselves, but went to Geneva simply to allow the ongoing war to be spun in such a way that places the blame solely on the Houthis.

In fact, this deliberate scuppering of any chance of a negotiated settlement in favour of continued war and chaos mirrors precisely the start of the Saudi bombing campaign itself. A month after the bombing began, it was revealed that “Operation Decisive Storm” had been initiated just as Yemen’s warring parties were on the verge of signing a power-sharing agreement that could have ended the country's civil war.

The Saudi involvement in Yemen is not about some kind of age-old sectarian identity – it is about strategy, a specific strategy that is in fact very new, dating back to the middle of the last decade, when the Saudi-Israeli-US-British alliance decided to channel billions of dollars into sectarian death squads that would be unleashed against the growing resistance axis spearheaded by Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah. The Houthis, by threatening the regional base of one of the most powerful of these groups – Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula – were a threat to this strategy.

The chaos arising from the Saudi intervention, meanwhile, has provided the perfect conditions for its spread – byDan Glazebrook

Saudi Arabia Is Thwarting the Distribution of Emergency UN Aid in Yemen

On April 17, as its bombs fell across Yemen, the government of Saudi Arabia pledged $274 million dollars in aid for the country, meeting entirely the UN's emergency "flash appeal" for humanitarian funding less than 24 hours after it was announced. But more than two months later, the money has not been delivered. According to a UN memo obtained by VICE News, the Saudi government has applied unprecedented conditions that could complicate and delay its disbursement — conditions that the UN appears to have quietly acquiesced to – by Samuel Oakford

Deprived of ‘checkbook diplomacy’ in Yemen and Syria, Saudi Arabia flounders

The latest series of WikiLeaks cables have once again embarrassed the Saudi government and forced it on to the diplomatic defensive.

What these cables do show is Saudi Arabia’s overwhelming desire to prevent the public from seeing how it uses its “soft” power assets — its oil and financial largesse — to persuade strategic allies and major powers to support its foreign policy goals. Successive Saudi monarchs have relied on this indirect strategy for decades, as it has delivered domestic political stability and maintained Riyadh’s status as a major regional power. However, the recent examples of Syria and Yemen, where Riyadh has been forced to take the foreign policy lead — delivering inconclusive, confusing and unpredictable results — show that when the Saudis are forced to implement their foreign policy objectives by diplomatic or military means, they struggle to manage the fallout.

Nevertheless, the newly released cables reinforce Saudi Arabia’s willingness to use its financial muscle to achieve its goals — an approach that could be described as “checkbook diplomacy” — and its ongoing preoccupation with attempting to push back the influence of regional rival Iran

The WikiLeaks cables revealed how Riyadh wants to shape the Middle East, often in a way that highlights its double standards and disagreements with allies. While this may not be viewed as controversial from a Western perspective — where cynicism and scepticism about states’ motives is built into foreign policy analysis — for a country like Saudi Arabia that is sensitive to the way its government is perceived, both internally and externally, the WikiLeaks exposures will continue to embarrass the House of Saud -by David Hartwell

Riad plant Regime-Change

Von Wikileaks veröffentlichte E-Mails belegen Einmischung Saudi-Arabiens im Iran. Die dortige Jugend sei unglücklich und »frustriert« und wünsche sich nichts sehnlicher als einen »Regime-Change«, schrieb die saudische Botschaft aus Teheran. Um die Lage zuzuspitzen, wollte das erzkonservative Königshaus daher »das Internet« und insbesondere »soziale Medien wie Facebook und Twitter« nutzen. So sollten iranische Auslandsoppositionelle zu Wort kommen und Menschen im Iran »ermutigt« werden, »Fotos von Folterungen zu veröffentlichen, die das iranische Regime gegen das eigene Volk verübt« - von Karin Leukefeld

Saudi Bombing Only Fans Yemen’s Flames

With the failure of talks last week in Geneva to establish even a short-term cease-fire, it increasingly appears that Saudi Arabia lacks a realistic strategy to end the war, according to analysts and Yemenis interviewed in different parts of the country. In fact, many of them said Saudi intervention had made matters worse, expanding the violence while making resolution even harder to achieve.

Health care services crumble in Yemen

The challenges for Yemenis seeking medical services are enormous. To date, over 470,000 children under 5 have been directly affected by the closure of 158 health facilities. Those facilities that are open have few medicines to treat children, and essential medical supplies such as bandages, syringes and other crucial equipment are running low. There is also very little fuel to run hospitals and health centres. Nearly three months into the conflict, Yemen faces a humanitarian catastrophe with 21 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. UNICEF also projects that, with the fast deteriorating basic social services, 2.5 million children are at risk of suffering from diarrhoea, 1.3 million from pneumonia and nearly 280,000 from severe and acute malnutrition over the next 12 months. The conflict has ground Yemen – already one of the poorest countries in the Middle East – to a halt.
