A Yemeni drone strike hit a military parade outside the southern port city of Aden on Thursday, killing or injuring dozens of Saudi-led aggression forces.

The drone attack targeted graduation ceremony in Al-Anad airbase in Lahij, military sources close to both Houthi revolutionaries and aggression forces reported.

The drone managed to get into the airbase and hit the main platform of the parade, Yemen’s Al-Massirah reported.

The casualties included high-ranking commanders of Saudi-backed fugitive president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi’s forces, military sources said.

Sky News Arabia reported that Chief of Staff of Hadi’s forces, along with Lahij governor were among those injured in the drone attack.

Al-Massirah reported that the strike accurately hit its target, noting that the attack followed a surveillance operation of the aggression forces’ moves and gatherings in Al-Anad airbase.

Local sources said that sirens of ambulances were heard in the area, Al-Massirah reported, adding that many of the injured are in serious condition.

Talking to Al-Manar following the attack, Yemeni Air Force and Air Defense Spokesman, Abdullah Al-Jafri said that the attack on Al-Anad airbase killed or injured 150 Saudi-led forces and mercenaries, including high-ranking Saudi and Emirati commanders.

He said that the strike on the strategic air base of Al-Anad has sparked fear among aggressions powers, stressing that they will not be able to stop the revolutionaries’ drones.

Yemen Talks: Saudis Disrupting Prisoners’ Deal

Local Editor

The Saudi coalition and its mercenaries are attempting to disrupt the prisoner exchange deal, which was agreed to during the Sweden consultations. 

Based on the operational mechanism and timetable for implementing the terms of the deal, the National Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs presented a complete, accurate and professional list of prisoners, while the other party failed to comply. The number of names presented on the other party’s lists totaled 9,147, the majority of which were marked by disparities.

These disparities included 2171 repetitions, 1144 names of people who were previously released and 1460 fake names and lack of complete data. The other party’s lists also included 111 names of Al-Qaeda and Daesh members and 47 names of persons detained on criminal and moral grounds.

The National Committee revealed that while the other party tried to flood the lists with thousands of fake and repeated names, they ignored hundreds of their prisoners, making no mention of their names. The Committee noted that it had no objections to releasing the prisoners whose names were not mentioned if the other party committed to releasing all of its detainees.

The National Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs, headed by Abdul-Qader al-Murtada, stated that the other party’s list is evidence of its lack of seriousness and its intent to circumvent the agreement. The committee confirmed its commitment to both the prisoner swap agreement and not allowing the coalition to disavow or disrupt it. The committee also called on the UN envoy Martin Griffith to pressure the other side and compel them to implement the prisoner exchange agreement.

Yemeni Surprises That Exhausted the Forces of Aggression

Ismail Al-Maharqi

As 2018 draws to a close and Yemen is set to usher in a new year, the invaders’ dreams of seizing the capital Sana’a have not come true. The illusion of occupying the city of Hodeida and its main ports has faded. They have failed despite their preparations as well as the equipment and fighters funneled in by their international and regional backers in the hope of a battlefield resolution that would result in significant changes on the map of control and geopolitical influence in favor of the regional American project.

Defiance Along The West Coast And Desperation Along The Rest of the Battlefronts

Following the failure to topple the government in the capital Sana’a from within after the unsuccessful December sedition and the subsequent demise of the leader of treachery and treason, former President Ali Saleh, in late 2017, the UAE quickly rearranged its cards and opened camps in Aden to receive and regroup its mercenaries led by Tariq Saleh. The militias were unleashed to carry on with their military operations against Hodeida – this time with the participation of all of its armed formations.

With the exception of some incursions along the coastline, all military attacks against Hodeida and the outskirts of the city failed, inflicting unprecedented losses on the enemy’s ranks. Estimates put the number of armored vehicles and machineries destroyed or damaged in the hundreds while thousands of attackers were killed and wounded.

Even though the invaders showed resilience and achieved gains on the battlefield along the coast, the results were counterproductive. This prompted Washington to utilize the deteriorating humanitarian situation to its benefit. And so where they failed militarily, they turned to politics.

Along the other fronts, the winds did not blow as the Saudis had hoped. Along the Saudi border, thousands of mercenaries and Sudanese soldiers were overwhelmed with heavy losses, as was the case along Yemen’s frontlines.

The army and the popular committees reinforced their presence there by restoring strategic areas in Sirwah Marib, Jawf, Nehm, Taiz and Lahij. They also maintained their near-complete control over al-Bayda despite a series of military campaigns to capture it.

The Year of Ballistic Missiles

The first days of 2018 showed the extent of frustration within the aggression’s camp. It committed more war crimes, including genocide, in more than one Yemeni province. The alliance of aggression was not counting on the surprises the other side was planning.

By separating the rocketry force from the new locally-made ballistic missiles system, the list of targets inside Saudi Arabia expanded.

The number of attacks against the Kingdom’s southern border increased. Short-range ballistic missiles, including Badr-1 and Qaher 2M missiles as well as other systems were used. The missiles targeted economic and military zones such as oil refineries, airports and military bases.

This confirmed martyr Saleh Sammad’s equation that the fourth year of aggression will be a year of ballistic missiles par excellence, no matter how many defensive systems the enemy mobilizes to limit it.

Tactical Transformation in Launching the Ballistic Missiles

Through steady development of its capabilities, the missile force made a tactical transformation – whether in terms of doubling its momentum and revealing underground platforms for launching or in terms of announcing the possession of smart missile technology as well as the announcement that the Yemeni missiles reached the capital Riyadh and bombed King Khaled Airport again in February. Instead of launching individual missiles, it launched rockets in batches.

As the aggression entered its fourth year, the missile force also initiated a new phase by launching attacks against the Saudi Defense Ministry and other economic targets using Burkan-2H missiles. The attacks were repeated on more than one occasion throughout the year. They targeted military bases, vital installations as well as mercenaries’ camps and command and control centers inside Yemen and along its west coast. The strikes were also concentrated on Riyadh, Jeddah, Yanbu, Najran, Asir, and Jizan.

Yemen Has Its Own Military Capabilities That Broke the Siege

Defying the siege, which was imposed by the coalition to force the Yemeni people into submission and surrender, the military manufacturing unit at the Ministry of Defense intensified its efforts to achieve self-sufficiency and to provide the fighters along the battlefronts with sufficient quantities of ammunition and cannons. The unit revealed the country’s capabilities in manufacturing missiles of various kinds, including a 120-caliber mortar called “Rojoum” as well as mortar and artillery shells, at the end of last April in the presence of President Saleh al-Sammad – days before his martyrdom.

This affirmed a declaration by the leader of the revolution Abdulmalik Badreddin al-Houthi about drawing strategic war equations. He stressed that Yemen is capable of military industrialization with purely Yemeni expertise. The Houthi leader vowed to produce large quantities of projectiles, enabling rocket attacks to cover wider areas in the Kingdom.

Air Force And Air Defense Are Actively Participating

The year 2018 also saw the Air Force and Air Defense announce the introduction of a surface-to-air missile system, which was locally developed using national expertise. The announcement came after a Tornado drone was shot down in Saada and an F15 fighter jet in Sana’a. The coalition considered the announcement a dangerous development since simultaneous strikes hit modern warplanes, a Chinese-made fighter jet with no pilot and a large number of different kinds of reconnaissance drones. Saudi and Emirati F16 planes were also forced to leave Yemeni airspace several times.

Drones Consolidate A Strategic Deterrence Formula

Parallel to the ballistic missiles and their achievements on the battlefield, the drone air force has also proved its effectiveness in 2018 with unparalleled success in striking targets and vital installations inside and outside Yemen. Drones revealed Yemen’s military production capabilities and strength factors despite the land, sea and areal siege.

More than one qualitative operation was carried out by UAVs across battlefields inside Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The Qassif-1 drone attacks from a distance of no more than 150 kilometers. During the first half of 2018, the Qassif-1 attacked the Emirates’ Patriot PAC-3 system in Mukha. In February, the drone along with the rocketry force targeted the invaders’ command and control center in Marib. A series of operations targeting Saudi airports and installations in Jizan and Asir and often the camps along the west coast and frontlines inside Yemen followed.

Sammad 3 Drone Penetrates Emirati Airspace and Changes the Balance of Power

The second and third generation drones – named after martyr al-Sammad – were first used on the frontline on July 18. They were more effective and were able to travel longer distances as promised by Sayyed Abdulmalik Badreddin al-Houthi, the leader of the revolution. The drone covered more than a thousand kilometers and penetrated the US monitoring and sensing systems. The Sammad 2 drone bombed the Aramco refinery in Riyadh.

In August, the drone air force had the UAE in its crosshairs. One of its first missions was targeting the Abu Dhabi airport using a Sammad 3 drone. The escalation was both sudden and shocking for the Emiratis due to the impact on their economic security.

The drone air force reinforced its presence in the strategic deterrence formula by bombing Dubai airport – one of the world’s largest airports – at the end of August. The Emirati regime was forced to deny the attack and release misleading information.

When the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi sought new defensive means to curb these attacks and their aftermath, the drone air force targeted Dubai airport once again at the end of September. All vital Saudi and UAE bases and facilities were thus placed on the target list of the drones and before that the ballistic missiles.

The Surprises of the Naval Force

In recent years, coordination between the army and the popular committees in reinforcing the factors of strength and limiting the enemy’s options and abilities as well as its air and sea superiority has been successful.

The naval forces and the coastal defense played a pivotal role in terminating military campaigns and landing attempts to capture Yemen’s west coast. They carried out qualitative operations that at times paralyzed the enemy and at other times forced it to change its plans and priorities.

A few days after the United Arab Emirates declared the start of the US/UK-backed military campaign that involved the French and was aimed at occupying the city of Hodeida as well as other Yemeni ports starting from Mukha, the naval force foiled a landing attempt. On June 3 and days before foiling a landing attempt using sophisticated boats along the west coast, the force targeted a warship with two missiles.

From the sea, the naval force launched an offensive on a concentration of invaders and occupiers in the port of Mukha in July. Their equipment was bombed at the dock. Also in July, Saudi Arabia’s Dammam battleship was targeted off the west coast by a missile. The attack shocked the Saudi regime. Saudi Arabia was surprised by a special naval operation near the port of Jizan that resulted in the striking of a military target and the killing and wounding of Saudi soldiers.

The operation was followed by the targeting of a Saudi warship off the coast of Jizan in early September.

The operations of the naval force and attempts by the Saudi regime to involve international forces in the coastal war by announcing the suspension of oil exports under the pretext of protecting maritime navigation, summarizes the coalition’s failure over nearly four years.

The Sweden Consultations End a Year of Surprises and Pave the Way for a New International Resolution

2018 did not end according to the calculations and plans of the Saudi-led coalition.  Following its failure to run southern Yemen and occupy its north, the coalition’s international backers were forced to search for practical solutions to rescue it from the Yemeni quagmire, especially after it has brought the country to the brink of famine and caused the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.

In Sweden, under the auspices of the United Nations, the national delegation from Sana’a reached a humanitarian agreement with the Riyadh delegation to immediately cease-fire in Hodeida and its port, followed by a withdrawal of the invaders and mercenaries from the south of the city. In exchange, the army and the popular committees put away their arms inside Hodeida. Meanwhile, the current authorities will take over all the administrative and security responsibilities. The United Nations will supervise the port’s revenues, including those from oil and gas while revenues from ports under the control of the Hadi regime will also be supervised. The revenues will contribute to alleviating the suffering of the people and be used to for salaries.

Bypassing the Security Council resolution 2216, which secured political cover for the forces of aggression, the Council voted on a new draft resolution. The new draft supports the Sweden consultations and paves the way for a comprehensive political solution, provided there are sincere intentions and the UN observer team remains neutral in overseeing this agreement away from Saudi and Emirati pressures and dictations.

Member of the Sana’a negotiating delegation, Abd al-Malik al-Ajri, described the resolution 2451 as “progressive compared to previous positions”. He said it was “an implicit violation of the content of resolution 2216.”

Meanwhile, the spokesman for the Ansarullah movement and the head of the national negotiating team, Mohamed Abdel Salam, views the resolution as a positive and important step towards stopping the aggression, lifting the siege and paving the way towards a comprehensive political solution.

Ending the Bloodshed in Yemen

The Blade’s Editorial Board

The 56-41 vote by the United States Senate to end US military support for Saudi Arabia’s deadly war in Yemen is remarkable for several reasons.

First, and quite amazingly, it marked the first time that the Senate has utilized the powers granted to it under the 1973 War Powers Act, which gives Congress the authority to end military actions.

Second, the bipartisan vote was a complete 180 from just this past March, when a similar bill to end the US involvement in Yemen only received 44 votes. Political junkies will tell you that a 12-vote swing is an awful lot.

Of course, there is a reason for that vote swing and it was not because 12 senators suddenly developed a conscience. Rather, the brutal murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, allegedly at the order of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, resulted in an enormous outcry. The country wanted Congress to rebuke the Saudis, and removing support of the war in Yemen, which has come mostly in the form of arms and fuel for bombers, was the clearest way to do so.

But getting out of the conflict in Yemen is good for the US and good for the world. Foreign policy experts agree that without US assistance, the bloodshed is likely to come to end. This would be great news because some analysts have estimated that more than 50,000 people have already been killed in the conflict and that nearly 20 million Yemeni are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. For reference, Yemen’s total population is just over 28 million.

Sadly, getting the Senate vote is not a straight shot for removing US support for the war. House Republicans, with the critical help of five House Democrats, slipped a provision into the recently passed “farm bill,” a legislative package focused on agricultural subsidies, which blocks a vote on the Yemen resolution during this congressional term. The thought is that the Senate, which will be even more GOP-heavy come 2019, will not pass the Yemen war resolution again.

The Senate must show its backbone in 2019 and vote the Yemen resolution through again, with the support of the House. Ending US support for the war in Yemen should not be a red vs. blue game. It should be a bipartisan consensus, fueled by a desire to stand apart from the Saudis and reclaim our morality.

There is no time for political gamesmanship. Both chambers of Congress should pass the Yemen war resolution and they should pass it now.

Editor’s Picks: US Senate Corners Trump to Stop Supporting Bin Salman’s Crimes, Yemen War

Local Editor

The US Senate delivered an unusual rebuke of President Donald Trump’s response to the murder of Saudi journo Jamal Khashoggi as well as his support of continued Saudi war in Yemen, and signaled new skepticism from Capitol Hill toward the longtime Middle East ally, bringing analysis pieces dealing with the issue on top of the media platform, of which we brought to you some.

The Washington Post’s Editorial Board considered the resolution a powerful repudiation of both Saudi Arabia and Trump.

According to the Post, it was an important step toward holding Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman accountable for the murder of its contributing columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

The senate unanimously approved a resolution that assigns responsibility to bin Salman for the killing and said the regime’s “misleading statements” about the case “have undermined trust and confidence” in Saudi-US relations.

The vote was a powerful repudiation of Trump’s refusal to accept, or act upon, the truth about the crown prince — and it should cause the president to reconsider.

The resolution’s passage came on the heels of a 56-to-41 vote in favor of another resolution ending US support for the Saudi war in Yemen under the War Powers Act. House Republicans have already moved to block consideration of that measure. But if Speaker Paul D. Ryan [R-Wis.] wishes to end his congressional career with a touch of honor, he should schedule a vote next week on the Khashoggi resolution. House members should have the opportunity to show whether they stand with US intelligence professionals who have concluded that Mohammed bin Salman was responsible for this act of wanton brutality — or with a president who would bury the facts in service of [largely phantom] weapons sales. They should have a chance to stand up for the American values, including support for human rights that Trump has repudiated.

The evidence connecting Mohammed bin Salman to the killing is overwhelming. According to The Post’s reporting, the 15-member team sent to Istanbul to attack Mr. Khashoggi inside the Saudi Consulate on Oct. 2 included several of the crown prince’s personal bodyguards. It was headed by another close associate who called a top aide in Riyadh to say that he should “tell your boss” that Mr. Khashoggi was dead. The CIA discovered that the aide, Saud al-Qahtani, and the crown prince exchanged numerous texts during that time period.

Additionally, the Post’s contributor Aaron Blake wrote “The whole Senate just said Trump is wrong.”

Trump and top Cabinet officials have completely obscured and slow-rolled their own intelligence community’s conclusion about the Saudis’ killing of Washington Post Global Opinions columnist Jamal Khashoggi. And on Thursday, every single senator in attendance rebuked them.

Just moments after the Senate passed a resolution calling for an end to US involvement on the Saudi side of the war in Yemen, the GOP-run Senate voted unanimously for Sen. Bob Corker’s, R-Tenn., resolution officially blaming Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for Khashoggi’s death.

Corker’s resolution says, among other things: “The Senate . . . believes Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.”

That’s also what the CIA has concluded, but it’s a conclusion that Trump, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and even Defense Secretary Jim Mattis have taken great pains to undermine. A couple weeks back, the latter two briefed senators, with Pompeo saying there was no “direct reporting” of Mohammed’s culpability and Mattis saying there was no “smoking gun.” Those statements may be technically true, but they ignore the fact that CIA assessments aren’t legal documents but did assess Mohammed’s responsibility with “high confidence.” They created an impossible standard.

Meanwhile, Reuters’ Patricia Zengerle penned a piece entitled US Senate hands Trump historic rebuke on Saudi Arabia.

In a historic move, senators voted 56-41 to end US military support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen’s war. The conflict killed tens of thousands of people and spawned what the United Nations calls the world’s most dire human crisis, with the country on the brink of famine.

It was the first time either chamber of Congress had backed a resolution to withdraw US forces from a military engagement under the War Powers Act. That law, passed in 1973, limits the president’s ability to commit US forces to potential hostilities without congressional approval.

For his part, Imad Zafar’s Asia Times said the US Senate’s Yemen move is a message to Saudi royals.

The Yemen conflict is the most tragic event of recent times, where thousands of innocent people have lost their lives in the war between Saudi forces backed by the US and the Houthi rebels backed by Iran. The innocent people living in Yemen are caught in the middle of this fight as on the one side there are Houthi armed groups who are Shiite Muslims, while on the other side, the coalition led by Saudi Arabia is bombing them ruthlessly.

According to Amnesty International, because of this war more than 15,000 people have been killed or injured and it has resulted in a humanitarian crisis. Perhaps this move from the US Senate will help save the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent Yemenis targeted mercilessly by the Saudi-led coalition and the Houthi armed groups.

One wonders why it took Jamal Khashoggi’s murder to make the lawmakers realize that the US has been backing Saudi Arabia in killing thousands of civilians in Yemen.

Perhaps this can be seen as a signal to the Saudi kingdom that the US is ready to hold Mohammad bin Salman responsible for Khashoggi’s killing. Anger had been growing in the US over the recent findings of the Central Intelligence Agency that pointed to possible involvement by the crown prince in the killing and Turkey’s claim of a telephonic recording in which the killers were talking to higher Saudi officials about the success of the mission.

Yemen between an excluded peace and a mined truce

Yemen’s Ansarullah: Truce Agreement Victory for All Nation

Local Editor

Yemen’s Ansarullah revolutionary movement said the ceasefire agreed between the warring sides in Yemen is a victory for the war-torn country as it will stop Saudi attacks on the strategic city of al-Hudaydah.

The movement’s chief negotiator Mohammed Abdulsalam made the remarks in an interview with Al-Masirah TV, shortly after the warring parties reached a ceasefire agreement after days of UN-brokered talks in Sweden.

Based on the deal, “the existing local authorities will be officially in charge of controlling the city and establishing security there under the supervision of the UN,” Abdulsalam said.

The Ansarullah delegation and Saudi-backed former government agreed that the UN would play a “leading role” in al-Hudaydah, which is currently controlled by the Ansarullah.

They also agreed to reopen the airport in the capital Sana’a, which was shuttered last year after numerous attacks by Saudi Arabia.

The Riyadh-backed side, which represented former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi in the Stockholm talks, said on Friday that the Ansarullah must hand over the key port.

However, Abdulsalam strongly rejected the proposal, saying al-Hudaydah must be kept apart from the military conflict, and that a government should be formed first before all parties are disarmed.

Forces loyal to Hadi and the Saudi-led mercenaries were forced to sit for talks with the Ansarullah movement after their massive operation to seize the port city of al-Hudaydah failed.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates had deployed about 10,000 troops to Yemen’s west coast after repeated campaigns to seize al-Hudaydah were thwarted by the Ansarullah and their allies.

Ansarullah calls the truce deal a defeat for the Saudis as it stops the aggression, allows existing local protectors who thwarted the Saudi offensive to be in charge of the city, and allows the Yemeni nation to regain their access to food, medicine, and other basic supplies.

Around 14 million people have been pushed to the brink of starvation since the Saudi war began in 2015, according to the UN.

Yemen between an excluded peace and a mined truce اليمن بين سلام مُستبعَد وهدنة ملغومة 

ديسمبر 15, 2018

د.وفيق إبراهيم

انتهت المفاوضات اليمنية في السويد الى وعد بإطلاق المحادثات الفعلية في الشهر المقبل مع إقرار جرعات خفيفة من اتفاقات لا ترفع الجوع عن اليمنيين ولا تعيد الاستقرار الى ربوعهم.

فهل هذا طبيعي؟

تبدو كذلك بالنسبة للأطراف المشاركة التي تقف على نقيض كامل في مواقفها، فهناك فريق يمني غير موجود فعلياً في ميدان المعارك يعكس وجهة النظر السعودية الأميركية بشكل كامل ويقيم في قصور آل سعود في الرياض. كما يوجد فريق آخر من أحزاب جنوبية تجسّد موقف دولة الإمارات وطموحاتها في السيطرة على بعض أنحاء جنوب اليمن.

بالمقابل هناك انصار الله وحزب المؤتمر والجيش اليمني في جبهة واحدة تعكس رغبة أساسية في تحرير اليمن من محتليه والمتسلطين عليه منذ أكثر من خمسة عقود.

لجهة الجرعات التي جرى الاتفاق على تطبيقها يُسجّل بعض المواكبين خشيتهم من وجود رغبة سعودية بالمماطلة في تنفيذها، خصوصاً لجهة فك الحصار عن الحديدة، فهم مصرّون على إسقاط المدينة والسيطرة على ساحلها وحصر أنصار الله وحلفائهم في مجال مقفل بحراً وجواً وبراً.

بناء عليه لن يتأخروا عن محاولة منع توفير مناخات آمنة لفتح المرفأ وتسهيل مرور الطعام الى ملايين الجياع، ولأنهم يخشون من الضغط الاوروبي والأميركي المتجسّد في الكونغرس المصرّ على وقف بيع السلاح الاميركي للسعودية وحربها على اليمن فأذعنوا للاتفاق ظاهراً، لكنهم كشفوا عن مخطط بديل وخبيث. فإذا نجحت خطة السويد لفتح موانئ الحديدة فإن السعوديين وضعوا خطة للإمساك بكامل مياه هذا البحر تكون بديلة عن حصار الساحل الغربي بمفرده، لقد جمعت السعودية دول البحر الأحمر باستثناء اريتريا تحت مسمّى قمة دول البحر الأحمر التي تضم الى جانبها مصر والسودان والصومال وجيبوتي معلنين اتفاقهم على تأمين سلامة الملاحة الجوية والتجارة في كامل البحر الأحمر.

لماذا هذه الاتفاقية وفي هذا التوقيت بالذات؟ قد تبدو الأهداف بريئة، لكن أهدافها البعيدة تذهب الى تعطيل محتوى اتفاقية السويد الخاصة بالحديدة، وذلك بالتشويش على حركة نقل المواد الغذائية من البحر الى مرفئها وصولاً الى كامل اليمن، فيبقى الحصار منصوباً وقائماً إنما من جهة البحر الأحمر بامتداداته نحو قناة السويس المصرية ومناطقه المتداخلة مع المحيط الهندي من ناحية جيبوتي.

قد لا يأخذ التعطيل شكل منع كامل متجهاً الى اختلاق أنواع مختلفة من تعطيل الملاحة لأسباب متنوعة فيحققون غرضهم بفرض استمرار الجوع والاضطراب وعدم معالجة المرضى ومنع الاستقرار وتعطيل إمكانية الاتفاق بين اليمنيين، تكفي أن تتعرّض باخرة واحدة متجهة الى اليمن الى إطلاق نار حتى تتعطل حركة الملاحة.

هناك أيضاً حلفاء لهذا المخطط وأولهم «إسرائيل» التي لم تشارك في القمة، لكنها تشكل جزءاً اساسياً منها كانت الرياض حريصة على عدم إظهارها لتجنب الانتقادات العربية والإسلامية، لكن القدرات النارية لاسرائيل بحراً وجواً هي في خدمة دول قمة البحر الأحمر وذلك لانسجام الاهداف والتطلعات بينها، يكفي أن مدير المخابرات الإسرائيلية اعترف انه زار الرياض مؤخراً وأكثر من مرة فماذا كان يفعل، ألمجرد السياحة؟

انها بالتأكيد لتنسيق المواقف من اليمن والقضية الفلسطينية.

فإذا كانت السعودية لا تريد المفاوضات فلماذا سمحت لاعوانها اليمنيين بالمشاركة فيها؟

هذا سؤال وجيه لكن الإجابة عليه تذهب الى تأكيد أن هجوم مجلس الشيوخ والنواب الأميركيين على الرئيس الاميركي ترامب لرفضه محاسبة ولي العهد السعودي محمد بن سلمان بتهمة قتل الإعلامي الخاشقجي وتقطيع وتشريح جثته وتسييلها في القنصلية السعودية في اسطمبول التركية، هذا الهجوم طال ايضاً المشاركة الأميركية المؤيدة للسعودية في حرب اليمن واتسع ليشمل الدول الأوروبية والمعارضات فيها، هؤلاء يشنون انتقادات قاسية على آل سعود مطالبين بقطع العلاقات معهم وتجريم محمد بن سلمان ومحاكمته.

هذه الضجة العالمية ضد آل سعود فرضت مفاوضات السويد لمحاولة احتواء الغضب الغربي من إبن سلمان وترامب في آن معاً.

ولأن السعودية لا تريد وقف حربها على اليمن فقد قبلت بمفاوضات السويد شكلاً على أن تنسقها مضموناً وذلك بجعل الوفد اليمني المؤيد لها يطرح مواقف يبدو فيها منتصراً ويجذب من خلالها رفضاً أكيداً من أنصار الله وحلفائهم، فهذه الطريقة تمرحل المفاوضات الى أشهر متعددة من دون وقف حقيقي لإطلاق النار ومع فرض تقنيني شديد على حركة إرسال الغذاء الى الجياع في الداخل.

وتعتقد الرياض أن هذه الطريقة تؤدي الى إسكات الأصوات الغربية المعارضة للحرب، وتؤمن في الوقت نفسه ظروف استمرار المعارك حتى انهيار مناطق أنصار الله وحلفائهم جوعاً وقتلاً.

ما يدل على وجود هذه الخطة ان وفد الرياض اليمني رفض فك الحصار وفتح مطار صنعاء دولياً مانعاً بذلك الحركة الطبيعية لنقل المؤن الى المناطق المحاصرة.

لا شك في أن لدى اليمن المحرّر الكثير من الأفكار التي تفضح الموقف السعودي في اليمن، فماذا لو طالب اليمنيون بسحب القوات الأجنبية من اليمن بما فيها «القوات الإيرانية» المزعومة.

هذا لن يؤدي إلا إلى إخراج عشرات آلاف المرتزقة من كافة الجنسيات ومعهم بضعة آلاف سعودي وإماراتي، كل هؤلاء ينضوون في القوات السعودية والإماراتية الغازية، لكنهم لن يعثروا على إيراني واحد في كل المناطق المحررة.

وهكذا يواصل السعوديون والإماراتيون التآمر على العرب تاريخاً وحاضراً بتغطية من الأميركيين والعدو الاسرائيلي مقابل جهاد كبير ومنتصر من محور المقاومة ويمن الصمود المنتصر دائماً على الغزاة.
