Washington fears the return of Sanaa forces to strike Saudi oil facilities, which will double global oil prices above what they are due to the war in Ukraine and economic sanctions on Russia. Therefore, America is putting pressure on the coalition to accept the conditions of Sanaa to extend the armistice, including the commitment of the loyal authority for the coalition to pay the salaries of the employees in accordance with the previous agreement, which provides for the establishment of a financial portfolio in the central bank in Hodeidah, in which Sanaa puts the revenues of the port of Hodeidah, while the government loyal to the coalition pays the deficit in order to pay the salaries of all employees.

Saudi-led coalition exploiting UN-brokered Yemen ceasefire to mobilize mercenaries

The Yemeni defense minister in the [Sanaa] National Salvation Government says the Saudi-led military coalition is taking advantage of the ongoing UN-brokered ceasefire in order to mobilize allied militants in line with its hostile plots.

Major General Mohammad al-Atifi said Saudi-led coalition forces and their allies have exposed their conspiratorial intentions by hampering conflict resolution initiatives and all efforts aimed at establishment of inclusive peace throughout Yemen.

Waffenruhe im Jemen auf der Kippe

Die vorläufige Waf­fen­ruhe endet. Am Verhandlungs­tisch geht es nur langsam voran, ein Streitpunkt ist die Belagerung der Stadt Taiz.

Die am 2. April vereinbarte zweimonatige Waffenruhe zwischen den Kriegsparteien im Jemen – die Übergangsregierung mit Saudi-Arabien auf der einen, die Huthi-Rebellen mit dem Iran auf der andern Seite – läuft in den kommenden Tagen aus.

Außer der Unterbrechung aktiver Kriegshandlungen sollten auch vertrauensbildende Maßnahmen Teil der Waffenruhe sein: Der von den Rebellen kontrollierte Flughafen in der Hauptstadt Sanaa sollte wieder zweimal wöchentlich angeflogen werden können. Im Gegenzug sollten die Huthi-Rebellen die Straßen zu der von ihnen seit sieben Jahren belagerten Großstadt Taiz öffnen.

Auch sonst läuft es bei den vertrauensbildenden Maßnahmen eher wenig nach Plan: Im Moment verhandelt der UN-Gesandte mit allen Kriegsparteien in der jordanischen Hauptstadt Amman darüber, den Waffenstillstand zu verlängern. Die Gespräche waren letzten Freitag fast daran gescheitert, dass die Huthi-Rebellen sich weiterhin weigern, die Hauptstraße nach Taiz zu öffnen. Stattdessen boten sie lediglich die Öffnung einer einzigen engen Bergstraße an. Saudi-Arabien und seine Verbündeten verließen daraufhin fast den Verhandlungstisch.

Ein weiterer Grund, warum beide zögern, den Waffenstillstand öffentlich zu verlängern ist wohl die Hoffnung, der jeweils anderen Seite mehr Zugeständnisse abhandeln zu können.

Aid agencies urge Yemen's warring parties to renew truce

Aid agencies urged Yemen's warring parties to extend a two-month UN-brokered truce on Tuesday two days before it was set to expire, saying it had "positive humanitarian impacts".

"As organisations working across Yemen, we have seen the positive humanitarian impacts of the truce," said a joint statement by over 30 aid agencies, including Save The Children, Oxfam and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).

"We... urge you to extend the truce agreement, build further on the gains you have made possible over the past two months, and work towards peace for the people of Yemen," they added.

"Don't let June be the month where fighting resumes, public services fail, and more innocent lives are lost," the aid agencies said.

PARTIES’ MILITARY COORDINATION COMMITTEE CONVENES FIRST MEETING UNDER THE TRUCE

The Office of the Special Envoy for Yemen convened today the first meeting of the military coordination committee comprised of representatives of the parties in Amman, Jordan.

The meeting was attended by military representatives of the Government of Yemen, Ansar Allah and the Coalition Joint Forces Command and chaired by the UN Envoy’s military adviser Brigadier General Antony Hayward. Constructive discussions focused on setting up a robust coordination mechanism for regular dialogue and communication to de-escalate and address incidents that impact civilians and threaten to derail the truce.

“It is critical that parties have a neutral space to talk and interact with each other honestly, respectfully and freely with a focus on solutions,” Brig. Gen. Hayward stressed.

Representatives discussed options for a joint mechanism that will be tasked with addressing and de-escalating strategic and operational military and security incidents of concern in a timely manner.

“This first in-person meeting of military representatives of the parties in a long time to discuss how to improve dialogue and communication between them is a crucial step towards building trust and supporting the political process,” said Mr. Grundberg. “The parties should continue those positive steps by ensuring the continuation of the work of this coordination committee.”

The representatives agreed to hold a follow up meeting.

UN Special Envoy concludes initial round of discussions between the parties on opening roads in Taiz and other Governorates

UN Special Envoy, Hans Grundberg, concluded today an initial round of discussions in Amman, Jordan, with the parties on options to open key roads in Taiz and other governorates, as per the UN-mediated truce agreement.

A proposal for the phased re-opening of roads, including an implementation mechanism and guarantees for the safety of civilian travelers was drawn up based on the three-day discussions and options presented by both sides.

“It is promising that the parties met face-to-face to discuss the issue of road openings for the first time in years. I now call on the parties to conclude their internal deliberations urgently and deliver positive results to the Yemeni people,” said Mr. Grundberg. “Lifting restrictions on the freedom of movement of people and goods will not only have a positive impact on alleviating the suffering of the Yemeni people and reviving the economy, but will also help cultivate confidence in the political process.”

Civil society actors and local mediators, many of whom are from Taiz, also took part in the discussions by offering their insights and expertise as well as practical options for road openings.

“The role of civil society in those discussions proved to be indispensable, as they offered a compass to all those involved, including the UN, for prioritizing the interests and lived experiences of Yemeni women, men and children,” said Mr. Grundberg.

Yemen: UN talks to open roads to blockaded city inconclusive

Yemen’s warring parties did not reach an agreement Saturday to lift a blockade by Houthi rebels of the country’s third largest city, the United Nations said, after three days of talks in the Jordanian capital.

The announcement dampened hopes that the blockade of Taiz will be lifted as it was supposed to be as part of a U.N.-brokered two-month truce that ends June 1. The question of the blockaded city is key to extending the nationwide ceasefire.

The U.N. mission did not provide further details on the proposal or say when the parties would resume talks.

Yemeni civil society pushes for opening of roads to the city of Taiz despite Houthi reluctance

Yemeni civil society groups are campaigning actively for the opening of roads connecting the Yemeni city of Taiz with other major urban centres despite reluctance by the Houthi rebel group.

A proposal for the phased re-opening of roads, including an implementation mechanism and guarantees for the safety of civilian travelers was drawn up based on the three-day discussions and options presented by both sides.

Media sources in Amman say that the talks were on the verge of collapse on Friday, with the Yemeni government threatening to walk away after the Houthis refused to open the main roads that link the city of Taiz with Hodeidah, Aden and Sanaa, suggesting only opening a narrow mountain route.

Maj. Mohammed Abdullah Al-Mahmoudi, deputy head of the Yemeni government delegation on Taiz, told Arab News that it had insisted on lifting the Houthis’ siege of the city by opening the main roads.

The International Community Bears Full Responsibility for Lifting the Siege on Taiz

SAM Organization for Rights and Liberties called upon the international community to assume its full moral responsibilities in opening all crossings of the besieged city of Taiz, affirming in its statement issued today May 30, 2022 in this regard, that turning this file into a political bargaining chip exacerbates the suffering of civilians and does not serve the peace process, but rather may undermine the extension of the truce in Yemen.

The organization stated that the numbers and incidents caused by the siege on Taiz are shocking, and their impact directly affects the lives of ordinary citizens, especially the sick, the elderly, children and women as the siege turned Taiz into a large prison to practice collective punishment on everyone who lives there without distinction between civilians and military. This siege also affected the freedom of movement between villages and cities, in addition to directly targeting the right to life of civilians, whether by sniping, mines, or indiscriminate bombing.

The organization indicated in its statement that the siege has significantly affected the right to family life and led to the separation of members of the same family because of its negative effects on the family as an essential cell in building society

He pointed out that the Saudi-backed government, hesitant, has not respond to initiative by Sana'a to open two important roads in Taiz.

He explained that the hope is that the committee will receive quick, positive response from Saudi-backed government but it seems that their decision is coming from countries of aggression.

Head of Sana'a's Committee, Yahya Abdullah Al-Razami, confirmed that initiatives were presented in the ongoing discussions in Amman, that will contribute to alleviating all human suffering the Yemeni people is going through.

Al-Razami said that "we look forward to progress in initial steps and the Saudi-backed government to accept opening roads alleviating suffering."

"The delegation of the Saudi-backed government does not want any discussion of opening roads except in confined areas, in clear violation of the terms of the truce," he added.

"We hope that Saudi-backed government when it comes to opening all roads will realize the humanitarian responsibility towards our Yemeni people."

[Sanaa gov.] Prisoners Committee: US-Saudi Mercenaries Delay Delivery of Prisoners' Lists for Two Months

The National Committee for Prisoners Affairs confirmed that the US-Saudi mercenaries are still procrastinating the delivery of the lists of prisoners.

The head of the committee Abdulqader Al-Murtada wrote in a tweet that the committee did not reach 20% of the lists, despite the passage of more than two months since the agreement was reached on the exchange process, indicating that the mercenaries reject all solutions and proposals presented by the committee regarding the exchange of prisoners.

He demanded the United Nations to take firm measures against the procrastination of the mercenaries if it is serious about implementing the agreement.

The Prisoners’ Committee had announced late March the agreement with the US-Saudi aggression on a prisoner exchange deal through the UN to release 1,400 prisoners of the Army and Popular Committees, in return for 823 from the other side. The agreement included 16 Saudi prisoners and three Sudanese, in addition to Nasser Mansour Hadi and Mahmoud Al-Subaihi. However, the other party is still procrastinating without implementing what was agreed upon.

More than a year has passed since the implementation of the only prisoner exchange deal under the auspices of the United Nations. After that it was unable to implement any new deal due to the obstruction of the US-Saudi aggression and its mercenaries from implementing the rest of the signed agreements, in addition to the clear UN inability to move this humanitarian issue.

In the face of the obstacles that the aggression places in the way of implementing prisoner exchange agreements, including those carried out under the auspices of the United Nations, the Prisoners’ Affairs Committee seeks exchanges through local mediation, but the aggression is trying to close this door as well.

Yemen’s Truce About To Expire, With No Signs Of A Nearing Peace

Less than a week is the remaining period of the military and humanitarian truce agreed upon under the auspices of the United Nations in Yemen, and there are no serious indications by the coalition of aggression in moving toward achieving full peace. Violations, repudiation and evasion, this is how the US-backed Saudi coalition of aggression deals with the armistice while the United Nations turns a blind eye.

The aggression’s military violations of the truce began from the first day of its entry into force on the 2nd of last April. The violations amounted to be more than “3232” military violations along the fronts, including raids by raids and combat UAVs, attempted infiltration, and bombing. In addition, the siege is still ongoing as well as the detention of ships and the closure of Sanaa airport.

The humanitarian side did not differ much from the military side, as the coalition of aggression dealt with this side by evading the implementation of its obligations. Meanwhile, the United Nations did not perform its duty to implement the agreement, for it is the one sponsoring this armistice.

Although the armistice agreement stipulated the operation of two commercial flights to Sanaa International Airport during the whole two months of the armistice, but only allowed the airport to open and operate just last week, in clear violation of what was agreed upon.

The coalition of aggression’s repudiation of the implementation of the armistice agreement had significant humanitarian repercussions, especially on patients who are required to travel abroad for treatment.

The Arab coalition countries need to abide by all the terms stated in the truce in order for further humanitarian and economic treatments to alleviate the Yemenis' suffering, according to the Sana'a-based Saba.

Will UN-Sponsored Truce End or be Extended Amid US-Saudi Lack of Seriousness?

The humanitarian military truce entered its last quarter, amid a decrease in the obstruction and procrastination of the US-Saudi aggression. This stems from its desire to extend the truce.

Observers say that the aggression is living in a confusing situation, and that Sana’a has provided, through the current truce, complete evidence of its readiness for peace, which was lacking seriousness by the aggression.

The [Sanaa gov.] political council is discussing a request for the extension. The [Sanaa gov.] Yemeni conditions, if approved, will be more stringent and extensive with regard to blocking military violations and expanding the scope of the humanitarian issues as a human right for the Yemeni people, provided that actual steps begin by stopping the aggression and lifting the siege.

The Supreme Political Council and the Salvation Government affirm that the truce is just a preparation to move on the path of permanent peace and is not enough in itself, and that Sanaa entered into the truce from a position of strength and seriousness, both of which lacked by the US-Saudi aggression.

“We feel in the Supreme Political Council of the Republic in Sana’a that there is no real seriousness on the part of the US-Saudi aggression in bringing peace,” said Dr. Yasser Al-Houry, Secretary of the Supreme Political Council.

“It wants a weak Yemen, a divided Yemen, and a scattered Yemen. At the same time, the changes that took place in the region and the world pushed the coalition of aggression towards truce, especially after the third Siege-breaking operation,” he added.

Cautious optimism for peace in Yemen

A senior US official believes momentum could be building for a permanent ceasefire.

The National has now heard from the US Special Envoy for Yemen, Tim Lenderking, that he is "cautiously optimistic" that a two-month truce struck in April, which has significantly decreased fighting, will be extended, possibly even into a permanent settlement.

It is another sign that the past few months have been momentous.

After years of inaction, these developments are signs that there could be a light at the end of the tunnel. But it would still be a long tunnel.

Overhanging all of this is mounting international fatigue. So many wasted years coupled with a new crisis in Ukraine risk diverting attention from this important political moment, the best opportunity to help Yemenis in years. Losing focus now would be disastrous, and there already signs it is happening.

The next hurdle will be extending the truce, which expires on June 2. Eventually, in consort with the UN, there are hopes of a permanent one.

UN says Yemen warring sides meet on reopening Taiz roads

Yemen’s warring sides began talks Wednesday on reopening roads in Taiz and other provinces as the United Nations pushes to extend a two-month cease-fire ahead of a looming deadline, the U.N. mission said.

The discussions between representatives from Yemen’s internationally recognized government and the country’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels are taking place in the Jordanian capital of Amman.

The truce is set to expire next week. The Houthis had agreed to meet and sent names of their delegation to the U.N. envoy’s office last week.

Hans Grundberg, the U.N. envoy in Yemen, said the aim is to reach an agreement to ease the suffering of Yemenis in Taiz and other provinces, which would be a “collective victory for Yemen.”

“We want to support the parties in setting them on a path that would take Yemen out of a cycle of violence that has severely restricted people’s freedom of movement,” he said on Twitter.

Press release on the implementation and prospects of renewal of the truce in Yemen, 25 May 2022

A s part of the implementation of the truce, representatives of the Government of Yemen and Ansar Allah are starting the negotiations under UN auspices today, in Amman, Jordan, to agree on opening roads in Taiz and other governorates.

“Yemenis have suffered for too long from the impact of road closures. Opening roads in Taiz and elsewhere is a crucial element of the truce that will allow families divided by frontlines to see each other, children to go to school, civilians to go to work and reach hospitals, and essential trade to resume. I call on the parties to negotiate in good faith to urgently reach an agreement that facilitates freedom of movement and improved conditions for civilians”, UN Special Envoy Hans Grundberg said.

As part of the truce, the parties have also made important progress towards resuming commercial flights to and from Sana’a airport. More than 1000 passengers have traveled so far and the frequency of flights is increasing.

As the current truce agreement approaches the end of its two-month period on 2 June, the UN Special Envoy is actively engaging with the parties to renew the truce. “We have seen the tangible benefits the truce has delivered so far for the daily lives of Yemenis. The parties need to renew the truce to extend and consolidate these benefits to the people of Yemen who have suffered over seven years of war,” said Mr. Grundberg.

“The truce has presented a window of opportunity to break with the violence and suffering of the past and move towards a peaceful future in Yemen. The parties need to seize this opportunity, by implementing and renewing the truce and negotiating more durable solutions on security, political and economic issues, including revenues and salaries, to support a comprehensive political settlement of the conflict. The parties have the responsibility to safeguard and deliver on this potential for peace in Yemen.”

Expatriate Executives Flee Saudi Arabia’s Bad Bosses

The kingdom wants to attract the world’s best and brightest to futuristic projects such as Neom. But a difficult workplace culture is driving many away

Neom is Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s most ambitious project, a group of futuristic technology-driven communities with its own laws across an area the size of Massachusetts that the 36-year-old leader hopes will one day feature flying cars, robot dinosaurs and a giant artificial moon.

It is part of a plan to make the desert kingdom less dependent on oil with the help of the world’s best and brightest engineers, architects, executives and urban planners. Tens of thousands of white-collar expatriates have been drawn to work in multibillion-dollar initiatives launched in recent years under Prince Mohammed to create new cities and industries. These include five so-called gigaprojects, like Neom, and dozens of smaller real-estate developments and new companies.

Many recruits are now fleeing, turned off by a management culture that former executives say at its worst belittles expatriates, makes unrealistic demands and turns a blind eye to discrimination.

Two gigaprojects recently merged, three have lost their expatriate chief executives and all have turned over senior management. The American CEOs of a $10 billion financial district under construction in the capital city of Riyadh and a development company for 50 entertainment centers both also left. Neither responded to requests for comment.

Neom is the highest-profile example of the emerging corporate-culture clash.

The man handpicked by Prince Mohammed to lead Neom often berates and scares his employees, current and former Neom staff members say. Under Mr. Nasr’s leadership, Neom has lost dozens of expat executives from its 1,500-member workforce. Many have resigned or been fired since being poached from companies such as Walt Disney Co., Siemens AG and Marriott International. Some have forfeited contracts of more than $500,000 a year rather than work under Mr. Nasr, former employees said.

Neom in its statement said management places the utmost priority upon employee safety and well-being. “Every allegation of misconduct or impropriety is reviewed carefully, and dealt with swiftly and appropriately,” it said.

Amid these issues, Neom has tightened security around the camp. Management has installed dozens of cameras where employees live, unnerving some residents, according to current and former employees. Mr. Wright, the former IT security employee who was involved in monitoring the camp, said the cameras watch “everything you do.”

Saudi Reasons for a Rapprochement with Turkey

Reports that Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman may be planning to visit Turkey as part of an international trip in June, one of his first outside the Gulf region since the 2018 killing of Jamal Khashoggi, have added to the sense of rapprochement in bilateral relations between Riyadh and Ankara. A decade of increasingly confrontational policies that pitted Saudi and Turkish leaders against each other across a range of issues appears to have given way to a period of greater pragmatism in inter-regional relations. In part, this is consistent with, and part of, a broader regionwide de-escalation of tension that has been underway since 2020. For officials in Riyadh—as well as in Ankara and elsewhere in the region—domestic issues are being accorded greater weight than foreign policy ones in the era of COVID-19 and as Vision 2030 begins to come into focus for the kingdom’s millennial leadership.

Improving ties between Saudi Arabia and Turkey are therefore likely to focus on securing bilateral interests for each party and less likely to create a new power bloc or regional realignment, at least for the next several years as the broader atmosphere of regionwide reconciliation persists.

Yemeni TV announcer pleads to Saudi King and MBS to release her husband, charged with apostasy, atheism

A Yemeni TV announcer said a Saudi court had sentenced her husband to 15 years on charges of apostasy, atheism and blasphemy, and for posting tweets using fake accounts on the same matter.

Elham Hammoud, a former news presenter and television presenter on Azal TV channel, said that the ruling against her husband, Journalist Ali Abu Lahoum, was unfair.

She appealed to the concerned authorities in the Kingdom to intervene to drop the charges against her husband and release him, who has been in prison since last December.

Saudi Arabia steps into the Davos limelight

Flush with oil revenue, the kingdom and its Gulf neighbours are a rare economic bright spot

But four years on, Saudi officials are displaying a new confidence. The kingdom and its fellow Gulf energy producers are reaping huge rewards from the turmoil sweeping energy markets, whetting the appetite of bankers and financiers eager to counteract a slowdown in US and European markets. “This is the most buoyant market we have ever seen in the kingdom. Things were good before we even saw oil prices spike, now it’s just really on fire. And we think it will be for the next five or six years,” said a Gulf-based executive at a multinational that operates in the country.

Flush with cash and emboldened, Saudis hope the energy crisis will change the western campaign against investments in fossil fuels and bolster the kingdom’s standing in the world.

US warns talks on Yemen truce in 'trouble'

The United States warned Tuesday that talks on Yemen's two-month truce were in "trouble" as it pushed for an extension to help support millions at risk.

Yemen's Saudi-backed government and Iran-aligned Huthi rebels on April 2 entered a UN-brokered truce, the first since the brutal war broke out in 2016, but it expires on Thursday.

Talks to extend the pause in fighting "haven't ended yet but seem to be in a bit of trouble," said Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the US ambassador to the United Nations.

The talks impasse "is troublesome to us," she told reporters.

"We encourage the parties on both sides to continue those efforts and find a peaceful way to provide needed humanitarian assistance to the people of Yemen."

Blinken, Saudi counterpart discuss efforts to extend Yemen truce, avoid oil spill

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken spoke Monday with Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan, addressing the ongoing civil war in Yemen and its regional implications, including efforts taken to avoid a major oil spill from an oil tanker, the Safer, which has been stranded off Yemen’s coast in the Red Sea since 2015.

“The Secretary thanked the Foreign Minister for Saudi Arabia’s efforts to strengthen and extend the truce in Yemen, and they discussed efforts to avert the economic, environmental, and humanitarian threats posed by the Safer oil tanker in the Red Sea region,” according to a readout from the US State Department.

Should Biden go to Saudi Arabia?

Amid signs of a partial thaw in relations, a Yemen truce, Israeli nudging, and high oil prices, the US administration is assessing if Biden should travel to Saudi Arabia

“We have no travel to Saudi Arabia to preview,” an NSC spokesperson said.

“I think it is fair to say, there is an internal discussion about how to approach the Saudis and particularly whether Biden should travel there,” former US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro

“The question is whether the Saudi leadership, particularly MBS, wants to fix it, or is similarly minded, that the ship needs to be righted,” Shapiro. “The question of whether Biden goes to Saudi Arabia likely rides on whether that kind of reset structure can be put in place.”

“The relationship was at a low point…. and both sides…wanted some substantive progress before there could be a high-level meeting. It seems that in the recent weeks, there has been meaningful progress,” MEI’s Firas Maksad

Biden’s Top Middle East Adviser ‘Torched The House And Showed Up With A Firehose’

Brett McGurk has worked on MidEast issues since 2004. Now he's more powerful than ever under President Joe Biden — and insiders worry he's relying on a failed playbook.

President Joe Biden is about to make his biggest statement yet about America’s role in the Middle East — one that will disappoint many of his supporters and affirm that while presidents come and go, Washington’s often self-defeating approach to the region persists.

Ahead of Biden’s first presidential trip to the region this summer, his aides are finalizing a set of documents that one U.S. official who viewed the package summed up as “a recitation of every establishment view.”

Perhaps no one better reflects the national security establishment than the architect of Biden’s approach: Brett McGurk, the White House coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa.

As one of the few Washington operators who can boast of serving four successive presidents — both Republicans and Democrats — the 49-year-old McGurk is now more powerful than ever. And his personality, views and relationships are guiding American policy in a region where the U.S. has often made deadly, destabilizing mistakes, particularly over the almost 20 years during which McGurk has climbed up the ranks of government.

McGurk’s emphasis is on stability: He believes the U.S. should shore up local regimes, warts and all, as partners against threats like militancy, Iran’s nuclear capabilities and disruptions to global trade.

That view has largely guided America’s approach for decades. But today, many experienced analysts — including Biden’s own advisers — are questioning that tired strategy. They say it can convince Middle Eastern dictators they have unconditional support from Washington, and can blind the U.S. to the costs and the shakiness of authoritarian rule.

HuffPost spoke with McGurk and 20 other people, primarily current and former U.S. officials, to understand McGurk’s central role in the Biden administration’s ambitious MidEast plans.

Now, the president is moving to embrace regional leaders — including authoritarians he has shunned like Saudi Arabia’s Mohammed bin Salman — and kill what’s left of the impression that they should move away from autocracy if they want to sustain warm ties with the U.S. His upcoming trip is expected to confirm his commitment to the Middle East’s dubious status quo.

McGurk presents himself as a loyal, experienced guide for a cautious president who shares his belief that the U.S. can’t push for “transformation” abroad; one of his fans, a source close to a regional government, called him a “whisperer” who is deeply trusted by the area’s power players. S

THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION IS PURSUING A RETREAD OF TRUMP’S FALSE PEACE PLAN

New negotiations would extend Trump’s legacy in the Middle East with a fresh Abraham Accords.

The Trump administration’s solution, spearheaded by Donald Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, was to cut the Palestinians out of the question and organize a deal between Israel and its Arab neighbors around financial, military, and surveillance technology cooperation. The Abraham Accords were signed on September 15, 2020.

Kushner’s depiction of the plan was blunt. “One of the reasons the Arab-Israeli conflict persisted for so long was the myth that it could be solved only after Israel and the Palestinians resolved their differences,” Kushner wrote last year. “That was never true. The Abraham Accords exposed the conflict as nothing more than a real-estate dispute between Israelis and Palestinians that need not hold up Israel’s relations with the broader Arab world.”

That cooperation has continued, as Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has given Kushner’s investment fund some $2 billion and greenlit the financing of Israeli projects with it. Now, the Biden administration is moving swiftly to cement and extend Kushner’s deal, another nail in the coffin of Joe Biden’s campaign trail promise to make MBS a “pariah” due to his role in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Earlier this week, Axios reported that the U.S. was mediating negotiations between the Saudis, Israelis, and Egyptians for normalization of relations, following a secret meeting by CIA Director William Burns with MBS in April. The deal would hinge on the transfer of two Egyptian islands to Israel, a controversial course of action that in the past has drawn large protests from Egyptians. And, pressured by rising gas prices, Biden reportedly plans to meet with MBS later this year.

While advocates of the Trump administration deal described the post-Abraham Accord framework as a peace agreement, experts warn that it only makes peace among authoritarian rulers, not with the general Arab public, for whom normalization of relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel absent meaningful rights for Palestinians remains intensely unpopular.

Scoop: U.S. negotiating deal among Saudis, Israelis and Egyptians

The Biden administration has been quietly mediating among Saudi Arabia, Israel and Egypt on negotiations that, if successful, could be a first step on the road to the normalization of relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel.

It involves finalizingthe transfer of two strategic islands in the Red Sea from Egyptian to Saudi sovereignty, five U.S. and Israeli sources told Axios.

Why it matters:If an arrangement is reached,it would be a significant foreign policy achievement for the Biden administration in the Middle East.

The U.S. and Israeli sources said the agreement is not complete and the sensitive negotiations are ongoing, according to the U.S. and Israeli sources who are knowledgeable about the negotiations but who are not at liberty to publicly discuss them. The White House wants an agreement to be reached before President Biden's upcoming trip to the Middle East at the end of June, which could include a stop in Saudi Arabia, according to the sources.

The Tiran and Sanafir islands control the Straits of Tiran — a strategic sea passage to the ports of Aqaba in Jordan and Eilat in Israel. Saudi and Egyptian officials say Saudi Arabia gave Egypt control of the islands in 1950. T

Wikipedia: United States support for Saudi Arabian–led operations in Yemen

During the presidency of Barack Obama, the United States began providing Saudi Arabia with critical support to "sustain" the Saudi Arabian–led intervention in the Yemeni Civil War,[1] later expanded during the Donald Trump presidency.[2] This support included logistical and intelligence aid. Trump vetoed a bipartisan bill in 2019 aimed at stopping U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen. In 2021, Joe Biden vowed to halt U.S. support for the war, though U.S. arms sales to the coalition have continued.

Ukraine War Exposes Biden's Lies About Yemen

Biden is looking for Saudi guarantees to increase oil pumping to compensate for Russia’s oil, in light of the European crisis caused by the Ukraine war and the imposition of sanctions on Moscow, including boycotting energy sources (oil and gas) and searching for alternatives in the Middle East, the Gulf and Africa.

The events confirm that the US is manipulating decisions in order to guarantee the interests of its countries. The Russian-Ukrainian war imposed a new reality, which enhanced bin Salman’s chances of manipulating the oil card.

This means that the conditions automatically served to expose the American lies and promotions regarding human rights and the punishment of tyrannical regimes. It can be summarized by saying that “Biden found in these circumstances what strengthens his support for Riyadh and Abu Dhabi under the justification of the economic boycott of Russia” and the glow of US-Saudi relations under the cover of “necessity.”

U.N. Says Iran Has Enough Uranium to Produce Nuclear Weapon

Atomic agency reports country hasn’t given credible explanation about nuclear material found there

The United Nations atomic agency said Monday that Iran hasn’t offered credible answers to its probe into nuclear material found in the country and reported that Iran’s stockpile of highly enriched uranium has grown to roughly enough material for a nuclear bomb.

The two reports, circulated to agency member states and seen by The Wall Street Journal, will sharpen concerns about Iran’s nuclear work at the same time negotiations on reviving the 2015 nuclear deal have stalled. That agreement placed tight but temporary restrictions on Iran’s nuclear work in exchange for lifting most international sanctions.

Since the U.S. quit the nuclear deal in 2018, Iran has scaled up its nuclear work, including producing uranium enriched to 60%, which is near weapons-grade material. It has also largely stonewalled a probe into the nuclear material found in Iran, which many experts consider to be related to work on a nuclear weapon Iran carried out many years ago.

The reports set up a fight at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s board of member states next month. Iran wants the agency’s investigation closed next month and Iranian officials have said that failure to end the probe could complicate efforts to revive the nuclear deal, according to Western diplomats involved in nuclear talks.

However, with the agency stating that its concerns about the undeclared nuclear material remain unanswered, it appears unlikely that IAEA member states, which include the U.S. and European countries, will close the investigation.

The agency strongly criticized Iran’s continued failure to answer the questions about the nuclear material.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the United States has been bargaining for some "additional clauses" in talks between Iran and the P4+1 group of countries, thus creating barriers to reviving the multilateral 2015 deal that it has abandoned.

"Certain obstacles have been mounted here, mostly because of the US that has been bargaining for some additional clauses to be able to modify the initial idea and contents [of the deal] approved by the UN Security Council," Russia’s top diplomat said on Tuesday.

He emphasized that Moscow proceeds from the idea that it would be just "to revive the JCPOA without any omissions or additions," referring to the landmark deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

GOP Senator: ‘We have to be open to’ lifting terror label on Iran military wing

Delisting the IRGC is a remaining hurdle to reviving the nuclear deal and Rand Paul may have helped create space for Biden to get it done.

As the negotiations to re-enter the Iran nuclear deal drag on in a stalemate, one of the main sticking points has reportedly been Iran’s demand that its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps be removed from the U.S. list of foreign terrorist organizations. One of the primary obstacles standing in the way of the Biden administration moving forward with that concession is its fear of domestic political blowback. But one Republican U.S. senator said during a hearing on Wednesday that U.S. negotiators need to seriously consider it.

“I think we have to be open to it,” Sen. Rand Paul told President Biden’s Special Envoy for Iran Rob Malley, adding that he thinks — given the likely domestic political attacks Biden will be forced to endure for delisting the IRGC — any proposals for what the United States asks for in return should be made public.

Iran lodges protest over ship seized in Greek waters

Iranian state media reported Friday that Tehran has demanded the release of a ship seized by Greek authorities in their waters allegedly under pressure by Washington last month.

The foreign ministry summoned the Swiss envoy, who represents the United States in Tehran as they have no embassy there, to lodge a diplomatic protest over the incident. Greek media has described the ship as a tanker carrying Iranian crude oil in breach of international sanctions.

Iran called the move a “violation of international maritime law and international conventions” in its protest, the IRNA news agency reported.

On Wednesday, Iran summoned the Greek charge d’affaires over the matter. A day later, a Greek official said that following a “judicial intervention by U.S. authorities concerning the ship’s cargo” the ship’s oil was being transferred to another vessel off the port of Karystos on the Aegean Sea island of Evia.

Iran seizes 2 Greek tankers in Persian Gulf as tensions rise

Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard seized two Greek oil tankers Friday in helicopter-launched raids in the Persian Gulf, officials said. The action appeared to be retaliation for Athens’ assistance in the U.S. seizure of crude oil from an Iranian-flagged tanker this week in the Mediterranean Sea over violating Washington’s crushing sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

The Guard issued a statement announcing the seizures, accusing the tankers of unspecified violations. Nour News, a website close to Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, warned a short time earlier that Tehran planned to take “punitive action” over Greece assisting the U.S. in seizing oil days earlier from the Iranian-flagged tanker Lana.

Greece’s Foreign Ministry said it made a strong demarche to the Iranian ambassador in Athens over the “violent taking over of two Greek-flagged ships” in the Persian Gulf. “These acts effectively amount to acts of piracy,” a ministry statement said.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman: New sanctions prove US ill will toward Iranians, continuation of ‘maximum pressure’ policy

The spokesman for Iran’s Foreign Ministry Saeed Khatibzadeh says new sanctions imposed by the United States against the Islamic Republic and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s Quds Force reveal Washington’s animosity toward Iranians.

On Wednesday, the US imposed sanctions on what it described as a Russian-backed oil smuggling and money laundering network for the IRGC’s Quds Force.

The US Treasury Department claimed the network was led by current and former Quds Force figures, "backed by senior levels of the Russian Federation government" and included Chinese companies and a former Afghan diplomat.

On Thursday, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said, “The Islamic Republic of Iran and its official and legal Armed Forces, especially the IRGC’s Quds Force, have been always a nightmare for terrorist and extremist groups in the region.”

U.S. Envoy Says Prospects For Reviving Iran Nuclear Deal 'Tenuous' At Best

The U.S. special envoy for Iran, Robert Malley, says that the prospects of reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal are "tenuous" at best, telling a Senate committee that it is more likely than not that talks will fail.

"As of today the odds of a successful negotiation are lower than the odds of failure and that is because of excessive Iranian demands to which we will not succumb," Malley told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on May 25.
Malley, who has led more than a year of indirect talks with Iran, said the United States still supports a return to the 2015 nuclear accord and is ready to lift sanctions if it secures an agreement.
But if the currently stalled talks to revive it fail, the United States is "ready to continue to enforce and further tighten" sanctions and "respond strongly to any Iranian escalation, working in concert with Israel and our regional partners."
While saying that "all options are on the table," Malley made clear that President Joe Biden does not support military action, saying "by far the best option is a diplomatic one."
He also said the United States would reject demands that go beyond the scope of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the original deal between Iran and six major powers is formally known.
One of Iran's demands is the removal of the U.S. designation of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization, a step Biden has rejected.

Addressing an event on Wednesday to commemorate 4,000 martyred clerics, Raeisi said the martyrs’ blood carries the message of resistance against the enemies, protecting Islamic values, building the country, resolving people’s problems, forging unity, national cohesion, and adhering to the guidelines set by the leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

Envoy: Iran nuclear deal looks ‘tenuous’ but worth seeking

The United States’ top negotiator for Iran nuclear talks made the case to lawmakers Wednesday for sticking with what may be a last try for a deal reimposing limits on Iran’s nuclear development, despite Iran closing in on completing a bomb-capable nuclear program.

Rob Malley, President Joe Biden’s envoy to negotiations aimed at getting the U.S. and Iran back in a breached 2015 Iran nuclear deal, faced lawmakers on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Some Democrats on the committee joined Republicans in saying it was past time to break off talks and move to tougher means to block Iran from taking the final, technical steps needed to build a bomb.

IT’S NOT JUST PUTIN – UK MINISTERS ARE ALSO COMPLICIT IN WAR CRIMES, IN YEMEN

As Boris Johnson’s government galvanises international action to take Russia to the International Criminal Court over Ukraine, his officials are escaping accountability for their own complicity in violations of international humanitarian law.

Violations of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) – in particular the indiscriminate or even purposeful killing and maiming of civilians – have been a regular feature of armed conflicts in recent decades.

Impunity for violations of IHL and war crimes has become one of the most dire features of the international orde

In 2019 a coalition of European and Yemeni groups, including Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), made a submission to the International Criminal Court. We asked them to investigate European government officials and arms company executives for potentially aiding and abetting war crimes in Yemen.

There is no clear jurisdictional route to prosecuting the direct perpetrators of the potential war crimes committed by the Coalition at this point in time, as neither Yemen nor the Saudi coalition members are party to the ICC.

To date the ICC has never opened a case involving a western European state. Communications to the ICC against corporate actors are rare, let alone investigations into their activities.

Bringing European economic and political actors before the ICC to investigate their potential involvement in alleged war crimes is a new avenue in the quest for justice. National law enforcement agencies have refused or are unwilling to address the complicity of European actors in these crimes.

These exports in question were licensed by high-ranking government officials who were made aware there was a strong likelihood these arms could be used to commit violations of international humanitarian law that may amount to war crimes.

A state’s failure to enforce relevant arms export control laws does not exempt companies from their responsibility to respect human rights and international humanitarian law.

Supplying weapons to the Yemen conflict is a flagrant example of non-compliance with international, regional and national export control law. These exports are contrary to provisions in the Arms Trade Treaty, the EU Common Position and UK domestic laws.

Pursuing accountability for crimes committed in Yemen will constitute a step towards closing this corporate impunity gap.

However, in the face of so many atrocities globally we cannot be complacent about avenues for justice. CAAT’s legal case against the UK government shows that western governments will go to great lengths to ignore and deny their complicity in war crimes.

The ICC can offer some steps towards accountability for war crimes but its integrity rests on an equal pursuit of perpetrators, one which does not exclude the political allies of powerful Western states, or crucially, European states themselves.

Boris Johnson’s Saudi WhatsApps Stay Secret

The government has rejected an FOI request for messages that may have passed between the prime minister and MbS in January, a month with some of the worst air strikes on civilians in Yemen.

No. 10 has rejected a Freedom of Information request by Declassified for any WhatsApps between the two leaders in January, and refused to confirm or deny whether the platform was used by them.

Correspondence between heads of state is normally conducted through official channels, with minutes taken that are eventually transferred to the National Archives — the library of British diplomatic records.

Using WhatsApp has raised concerns that historically important conversations could be lost, as messages can be set to automatically delete.

However fears remain that the popular messaging platform is vulnerable to hacking.

A senior Downing Street official, Nicholas Howard, told Declassified:

“As part of a modern working environment, the Prime Minister communicates with officials, advisers and others, including world leaders, through secure electronic channels.

“We can neither confirm nor deny what those secure electronic channels are…[nor] what material is, or is not, transmitted via these channels.”

Howard claimed that disclosure was not in the public interest as it would compromise “national security.”

Amnesty urges UAE to free 10 prisoners kept beyond sentences

Amnesty International on Monday urged the United Arab Emirates to "immediately" release 10 men who it said were being arbitrarily detained beyond their jail sentences.

They were being kept in detention "on the pretext of 'counter-extremism counselling'", according to Amnesty.

"My father has completed his sentence, and yet after all these long years, he is still locked up in prison for an indefinite period, not subject to any law," a son of one of the prisoners told Amnesty.

Ibb’s Grand Mosque: Heritage at Risk in Yemen’s Hinterland

The Grand Mosque of Ibb, Yemen, also called the Umar Caliph Mosque, is a critically endangered structure that has been a seat of the Shafii school of Islamic jurisprudence since the twelfth century. From the sixteenth century through the present, this identity became marginalized due to the changing political conditions of Lower Yemen. The present state of the mosque testifies to multiple phases of neglect, and the destruction of a complex that served as both a house of worship and a university; collapses and modern interventions have obscured much of its earlier grandeur. This study analyses the Grand Mosque’s destruction and deterioration through its distinct historic periods. For the Grand Mosque’s most recent history, photographs and interviews conducted by geographer Mohamed Saleh Al-Haj, a local resident of Ibb, are presented in collaboration with art historian Lily Filson, a colleague in the United States. The necessity of this international scholarly teamwork underscores the difficulties and challenges of conservation and fieldwork in Ibb. The Grand Mosque faces imminent risk because of its central location within Yemen, a hinterland within Islamic architectural scholarship and the site of a civil war that has claimed irreplaceable monuments and a staggering human toll since 2014.

In Less Than Two Months, 2nd Giant Ship Arrived at Occupied Hadhramaut to Loot Yemeni Crude Oil

The Ministry of Oil and Minerals revealed the arrival of the giant oil tanker (APOLYTARES) to the port of Al- Shihr in Hadhramaut governorate in the southeast of the country, coming from China for the second time in two months, with the aim of looting Yemeni crude oil.

A source at the Ministry of Oil told ِAlmasirah that the amount to be looted from the port of Al-Shihr is more than 2 million barrels of crude oil, and cost of the oil looted is estimated at more than 270 million dollars, according to the Brent Crude Exchange.

He pointed out that the looted quantity of Yemeni oil is sufficient to cover the salaries of employees in all parts of the republic for more than two months.

The giant oil tanker APOLYTARES, last April, according to the sources, was expected to carry 2.4 million barrels of looted Yemeni crude oil.

The sources indicated that the cost of the looted oil that the tanker will carry is estimated at more than $165 million.

The oil looted from Bir Ali and Dhaba ports during April and August reached more than $429 million.

Fragile Agreements with the Houthis and the Failure of Peace Initiatives in Yemen

A new study by Abaad Centre For Research examines the failure of the successive peace initiatives in Yemen: Historical agreements with the Houthi might be an indication the current UN-sponsored cease fire will not last.

A new study by Abaad Research Centre chronicles the Houthi’s behaviour in past cease fire agreements which the insurgent group used as a stepping stone to increase its influence and expansion across the country since 2004 to this day. The study based its findings on more than one hundred references and case studies. It concluded that the Houthi resort to making cease fire agreements - albeit temporary, every time it was exposed to pressure that it perceived to threaten its existence, or in the event of a shift of leadership, or in case it found itself in a tight spot and needed the lull in the fighting to regroup and facilitate arms delivery to its fighters.

To strike these agreements in the first place, the Houthi used terrorism, scare mongering, tribal pressure and political dodging. But no sooner than the goals for which they struck the truce agreements have been achieved, the Houthi revoke them through the use of excessive force and the systematic dodging of renegotiation in the same mannerism that Iran, the Houthi’s backer, uses to realise its objectives.

The paper, entitled “Fragile Agreements with the Houthis and the Failure of Peace Initiatives in Yemen”, also points to the methodical behaviour of the Houthi during the negotiations themselves to achieve the following: A guarantee that the group was declared victorious and the insurance of a one-third suspended government that can only implement parts of the agreement being negotiated.

Such behaviours were clearly evident in the “Peace and Partnership Agreement” and the “Stockholm Agreement”. It was also evident that Iran exerts a great deal of influence over the Houthi and its decisions. The Muscat backdrop negotiations in 2021 showed the extent of this influence, as it became also evident that the Iranians played a direct consultancy role to the Houthi on the sidelines of the Geneva Talks in 2015.

Darüber hatte der Spiegel aber nicht einmal berichtet, der Spiegel-Leser weiß nichts davon, dass Griechenland schon am 15. April einen iranischen Öltanker gekapert hat. Der Iran hat mit seiner Reaktion auf diesen griechischen Akt der Piraterie fast anderthalb Monate gewartet und griechische erst Tanker festgesetzt, nachdem am 27. Mai begonnen wurde, das iranische Öl aus dem Tanker abzupumpen, dazu gleich mehr.

Der Spiegel lenkt von dieser Chronologie geschickt ab, indem er seinen Artikel mit heftigen Vorwürfen der Piraterie gegen den Iran beginnt, dann kurz erwähnt, dass Griechenland zuvor einen iranischen Tanker festgesetzt hat, um danach sofort wieder über die griechischen Vorwürfe zu berichten.

The precarious truce between the Yemeni government and Houthis - comment

The war can be brought to a close only through an understanding between Saudi Arabia and the Houthis, but all parties will need to be realistic about the limits of the Houthis’ capacity for compromise, particularly when it comes to their relationship with Iran. What Yemen really needs are elections, an inclusive government and a new structure for the state. UN Resolution 2216 aims to establish democracy in a federally united Yemen.

The Houthis must be given the opportunity to choose. Do they wish to remain an outlawed militia permanently, or would they prefer to become a legitimate political party, able to contest parliamentary and presidential elections, and participate in government? The price would be serious engagement in negotiations aimed at a peaceful transition to a political solution for a united Yemen.

Yemen [Aden gov.] Calls for Protecting Refugees from Houthi Attacks

Yemeni Permanent Representative to the UN, Abdullah Ali Fadhel Al-Saadi urged the international community and the Security Council to take measures to protect civilians in both cities and refugee camps from terrorist attacks by Iran-backed Houth militias and to protect civilian objects in Yemen, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Al-Saadi made his remarks Thursday during an open discussion at the Security Council on unanimously adopted civilian protection resolutions.

He stated that the attacks violate international law and international humanitarian law.

They are a real threat to vital facilities, energy supplies, global economy stability, and international and regional security and stability, he added.

“Iran is supplying ballistic missiles to the Houthis, in violation of resolutions 2216 (2015) and 2231 (2015),” he added.

I know Saudi repression. Biden should save ties with the kingdom — with conditions.

I am a victim of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s ruthless regime. Two of my siblings are being held hostage in Saudi Arabia, and my family is tormented by a brutal intimidation campaign. Yet I remain a proponent of a healthy U.S.-Saudi partnership. President Biden could and should salvage the relationship — but not at all costs.

Any reconciliation that includes a Biden-MBS interaction and renewed U.S. security guarantees, however, must be conditioned on Saudi compliance with American interests and values, beginning with raising oil production and committing to accountability for Khashoggi’s gruesome murder.

For a start, instead of siding with Moscow, Riyadh needs to fulfill its obligations to Washington stemming from the tacit, decades-long security-for-oil arrangement. It should increase its crude output to support U.S. interests in Ukraine

Al-Sharjabi: The US-Saudi Aggression Works to Spread Chaos in Taiz

The [Sanaa gov.] Supreme Council for Humanitarian Affairs confirmed Thursday that the US-Saudi aggression is working to ignite chaos in Taiz.

In his intervention with Almasirah, the spokesman Talaat Al-Sharjabi explained that the aggression wants to divide the people of Taiz for its projects to strike the unity of Yemen.

He pointed out that the US-Saudi aggression brought mercenaries from various places to the city of Taiz with the aim of igniting a battle there.

Sharjabi stressed that there are more than 18 secret prisons in Taiz controlled by the US-Saudi aggression, and the prisoners there are subjected to the worst forms of torture.

Commenting on the recent talks in Jordan, he said, "we have concerns about the performance of the other party in Amman, as they have no authority and are not the decision makers."

Can United Nations, US-Saudi Aggression Succeed in Opening Roads in Taiz?

The closure of the main roads on the contact lines on the battlefronts caused great suffering for travelers, especially with the intransigence of the US-Saudi forces to open the roads and the non-compliance with the international truce. The member of the Political Bureau of Ansarullah Salim Al-Mughlas confirms that the travelers were forced to pass from very long roads, whether in Taiz or Ma’rib or Al-Dhalea and other provinces where there are frontlines.

Al-Mughals wondered: “Do you think the United Nations will press on the US-Saudi aggression this time and oblige it to stop firing, open all roads in accordance with the truce and alleviate the suffering of travelers?”

Meanwhile, the former head of the mediation committee for opening ports and roads, Muhammad Abdullah Nayef, demanded that the party obstructing the opening of the ports of Taiz to be exposed, in reference to the Islah party.

Alejri: US-Saudi Aggression Used Opening of Roads to Justify, Cover up Its Blockade of Ports, Airports

The US-Saudi aggression used the issue of opening roads to justify its siege of ports and airports and covering it up, says member of the [Sanaa gov.] National Delegation.

"We are keen to alleviate the suffering of the people, and in the circumstances of the confrontations there is a forced closure of some main roads to preserve the safety of citizens," AbdulMalik Alejri said in a statement to Al-Masirah on Tuesday

He pointed out that the measures in Taiz were imposed by military necessities to preserve the lives of citizens, while the closure of the ports and the airport was not justified.

On the ground investigations in Yemen show patterns of attack in violation of international law, Mwatana for Human Rights said in a witness statement to the UK court, published today.

Airstrikes by the Saudi/UAE-led Coalition are carried out using fighter jets sold by the UK and remnants of UK-manufactured weapons have been found at the sites of airstrikes.

In May 2021, Mwatana for Human Rights, with the support of Global Legal Action Network (GLAN), has intervened in an ongoing legal action brought in the High Court of England and Wales by the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT). The case challenges the UK government’s decision of July 7, 2020, to renew UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia for use in Yemen.

The incidents listed in Mwatana’s witness statement involved airstrikes where remnants of Coalition weapons, including UK-manufactured weapons, were found on the ground. In addition to containing investigation summaries of recent airstrikes in 2020, the annexed evidence bundle included the letter and enclosures Mwatana sent to the UK government in August 2019 containing extensive information about Mwatana’s investigations of dozens of earlier airstrikes. The bundle also addressed a number of reports by the Coalition’s accountability mechanism, the Joint Incident Assessment Team (JIAT), highlighting Mwatana’s continued concerns about its credibility and accuracy.

Mwatana hopes the court will carefully consider the witness statement and the accompanying evidence, bearing in mind the detailed, on the ground research that went into each incident. Mwatana is looking forward to the upcoming court hearing and hopes to see a decision that will bring Yemenis closer to justice.

“The incidents mentioned in the statement demonstrate a pattern of violations against civilians and civilian objects in Yemen. Despite this, the UK continues licensing arms for sale to Saudi Arabia when there is an evident risk that they might be used in similar incidents.” Radhya Al Mutawakel said.

Although the terms of the humanitarian and military truce in Yemen, which entered into force on last April 2, stipulate the cessation of all military operations by both parties, the US-Saudi did not abide by the truce, continuing its military violations, including sending spy drones repeatedly to carry out hostile actions.

Landmines Still Haunt Civilians in Northern Yemen

Over one million landmines have been laid since the outbreak of the civil war in 2014, when the Houthi militia took control of several northern provinces.

"The landmines have caused a major catastrophe in the country and threaten the lives of millions," said Kabol al-Absi of the Qarar Foundation for Media and Development, a non-governmental organization.

Recently, the Yemeni government, humanitarian organizations, and local activists took the chance of the two-month truce to launch a media campaign, urging the Houthi group to provide landmine maps for the removal work

"The demining process may take many years" if they refuse to offer the maps, said Huda Al-Sarari, a demining advocate. "The demining campaign also tries to prevent more civilian casualties as most of the victims are children and women. It also aims at drawing the attention of the international community towards this catastrophe," he added

"The landmines planted under the sands of farms, pastures, and roads have caused a humanitarian disaster and great terror among the residents here. The number of victims is increasing day by day," Hassan Musbih, a tribal sheikh, said.

Jemeniten setzen „Lebensmittel tragende Raketen“ ein, um der von Saudi-Arabien blockierten Stadt zu helfen

Die jemenitische Stadt al-Durayhimi in der unbeständigen Provinz Hudaydah ist eine der Städte, die besonders von der unmenschlichen Blockade durch die von Saudi-Arabien geführte Militärkampagne betroffen ist.

Laut einem Bericht der jemenitischen Nachrichtenagentur Al Elam Al Harbi musste das jemenitische Militär jedoch improvisieren und täglich Raketen mit Lebensmitteln in die Region schießen.

Dem Bericht zufolge wurden täglich acht bis zehn solcher Raketen vom jemenitischen Militär abgefeuert, was insgesamt bisher 2500 Raketen entspricht.

Inability to Treat US-Saudi Bomb, Mines Remnants Results in More Casualties

The director of the [Sanaa gov.] Executive Center for Demining, Brigadier Ali Safra, confirmed that the lack of materials used to destroy the remnants of war led to more martyrs.

In a statement to Almasirah, Safra said, Wednesday: "The area contaminated with mines in Hodeidah is more than 400 square kilometers, and we have cleared part of this area despite the lack of critical capabilities."

He added that the UN was informed of the necessity of allowing mine detectors, especially during the truce period, noting that the United Nations reduced its activities in Yemen and deliberately politicized the demining issue.

UNMHA Head of Mission leads verification patrol team in Hudaydah city

UNMHA Head of Mission General Michael Beary led a verification patrol team in Hudaydah city today, accompanied by the co-chair of the RCC from the Sana’a authorities, General Mushiki.

The patrol team visited various locations and infrastructure damaged by the conflict in Hudaydah, including Hudaydah University - a vital tertiary institution in the Governorate. They observed severe damage to the university buildings and need for mine clearance and reconstruction of the university campus. The patrol team also observed a desalination plant, damaged by the conflict.

The patrol team noticed key routes leading out of Hudaydah city to the south, which were contaminated and blocked off for use by the local population. YEMAC deminers were observed working to clear the roads to give safe access to the population travelling in and out of the city to the south from the outlying fishing villages.

In its 3rd part. al-Durayhimi documentary presents rescue operation trapped by helicopter

The third part of the documentary series "al-Durayhimi Siege and Victory" detailed the specific operation carried out by the air force to rescue those trapped in the al-Durayhimi district using a helicopter.
The operation, which was first shown in her scenes, was called the "10th Operation of Ramadan" as the first involvement of the air force with its manned aircraft since the aggression began, to carry out a purely humanitarian operation to rescue those trapped in the city.
The operation came after the siege of Almoravids and citizens in the city intensified and they reached the eating of leaves 568 days after the siege of the city, when the leadership decided to use a new weapon in the battle that was not in the mind of anyone, namely a helicopter, to carry out the successful relief operation.
The first of the Air Force and Air Defense missions was directed purely to be humanitarian, to introduce medicines and food for those trapped in al-Durayhimi.
The third part of the documentary series documented the process of equipping the 171 helicopters to carry out that mission.

Jemen: Land im Krieg, Christen in Gefahr

Die nach Recherchen von IIRF-D einige Tausende zählenden einheimischen jemenitischen Christen haben sich vom Islam abgewandt und müssen ihren Glauben im Geheimen praktizieren, indem sie sich in kleinen Gruppen in Häusern oder im Freien treffen. Da Jemen ein islamisches Land ist, in dem Gesetze gegen Apostasie und Blasphemie gelten, sind „Abtrünnige“ vom Islam, die Christen geworden sind, einer Vielzahl von Verfolgungen ausgesetzt, darunter Ausschluss aus dem Familien- und Gesellschaftsleben, Verlust des Arbeitsplatzes, körperliche und seelische Misshandlung, Inhaftierung, Vergewaltigung, Zwangsheirat und Tod. Das Ausmaß und die Ursachen der Verfolgung sind von Region zu Region unterschiedlich. Das Stammesdenken ist stark ausgeprägt, und oft geht die schwerste Verfolgung vom eigenen Stamm oder Clan aus.

Im nordwestlichen Drittel des Landes, wo die schiitischen Houthis das Sagen haben, sind die Christen aufgrund der dort herrschenden strikten Einhaltung der Scharia und der strengen polizeilichen Kontrolle am stärksten gefährdet. Aber auch im Süden, wo es eine starke Al-Queda-Präsenz gibt, sind Konvertiten vom Islam zum Christentum ebenfalls stark gefährdet.

Film: SOUTHERN ARABIA YEMEN CUTS

(28 Oct 1972) Cuts from original story w009639 Despite mediation efforts by the Arab League, the fighting between the two Yemeni republics rumbles on, threatening the fragile stability of Southern Arabia. The conflict grew out of the establishment of a Marxist regime in South Yemen (officially called the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen) after the British withdrew from Aden in 1967. The losing faction in the South fled to North Yemen (officially the Yemen Arab Republic) from where they carried out border raids into South Yemen. In neighbouring Dhofar, British officers have been training the Sultan's own troops to counter a guerrilla war by Marxist rebels supported from South Yemen. This report looks at the history of these conflicts in this sensitive, oil-rich area of the Middle East, and examines in detail the nature of both Yemen regimes.
