Marib Liberation ‘A Milestone’ In Battle to Expel Occupiers, Free Oil Wealth – Ansarullah

Marib Liberation ‘A Milestone’ In Battle to Expel Occupiers, Free Oil Wealth - Ansarullah

By Staff, Agencies

A senior member of the political bureau of Yemen’s Ansarullah resistance movement said the liberation of the strategic central province of Marib will mark an important “milestone” in the battle to expel the occupiers and retake the country’s energy resources seized by the Saudi-led military coalition and its allied militants.

“The liberation of Marib will have significant impacts on [efforts to] expel occupation forces and return oil wealth” to the country, Mohammed al-Bukhaiti told Beirut-based al-Mayadeen television news network on Tuesday night.

Al-Bukhaiti said the Saudi-led coalition of aggressors runs a key command center in Marib, which is tasked with directing the operations against the Yemeni armed forces and “that is why the liberation of the rest of Marib constitutes a major objective for Yemen and will mark a milestone and the start of a new phase” in the Yemeni army’s liberation struggles.

He added that Yemeni army troops and fighters from Popular Committees will soon mount a major operation against Saudi-led coalition forces and their mercenaries.

Al-Bukhaiti said the Saudi-led coalition’s air power will not last long, and the Yemeni armed forces continue to strengthen their military capabilities.

“We tell those involved in the fighting with the coalition that we do not want to target them,” said al-Bukhaiti, apparently addressing the militants serving the Saudi-led coalition on the battle ground. Besides foreign mercenaries, many Yemeni militants loyal to the former Riyadh-friendly government Sanaa have been serving the Saudi-led campaign.

The balance of power is tilting in favor of Yemen and the country will enter a new phase once enemy forces are defeated, he said.

“The Sanaa initiative is still on the table” Bukhaiti said, calling on Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to “quickly seize the opportunity and embrace peace.”

“Yemen’s goals are defensive at present, but the objectives of the battles may change as time passes,” he said.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yehya Saree, said in a press conference that Yemeni armed forces had made significant territorial gains in Marib Province, seizing control over large swaths of territory from Saudi-backed mercenaries.

Saree said the latest military operation dubbed Fajr al-Intisaar [Dawn of Victory], which came in the wake of a series of attacks by Saudi-backed aggressors in recent days, was launched after the success of the previous operation dubbed al-Bass al-Shadid to liberate Marib strategic province from the grip of Saudi-sponsored Takfiris.

Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and regional allies, launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing popular Ansarullah resistance movement.

The war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions more. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases.

Yemeni armed forces and allied Popular Committees, however, have grown steadily in strength against the Saudi-led invaders, and left Riyadh and its allies bogged down in the country.

Yemeni Resistance Makes Rapid Advances in Marib, Inflicts Heavy Losses Upon Saudi Mercenaries

By Staff, Agencies

The Yemeni Armed Forces and allied popular committees have made significant territorial gains in the strategic Marib province, seizing control over large swaths of territory from the Saudi-backed mercenaries.

In a press conference on Tuesday, Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesman, Brigadier General Yehya Saree revealed details of the military operation dubbed ‘Fajr Al-Intisaar’ [Dawn of Victory], which came in the wake of a series of attacks by Saudi-backed aggressors in recent days.

The official said the latest military operation was launched after the success of the previous operation to liberate the strategic province from the Saudi-backed mercenaries.

“With the participation of various military units, the Mujahideen began to carry out the plan that necessitated the attack on the enemy from several sides, before the main sides branched out into several other sub-sides,” Saree posted on his Twitter later.

“Every mercenary, agent, traitor can save his life and leave his position as our forces advance, our forces will allow him to escape and leave even if he is carrying his personal weapon,” he added.

Saree also noted that the Yemeni army in the latest offensive had liberated an area spanning 600 sq km from the enemy forces, and that it was inching closer to the provincial capital, 75 miles east of the capital Sanaa.

The forces loyal to Yemen’s national salvation government in the early hours of Tuesday made inroads into several areas in the city of al-Juba, while continuing advances toward the cities of al-Jadid, al-Rawda and other adjoining areas in the oil-rich Marib province.

The fresh offensive launched by the Yemeni government forces inflicted heavy casualties and collateral damage on the Saudi-backed camp, which includes the al-Qaeda fighters, reports said.

In al-Abdiyah, Yemeni government forces took control of the areas of Kharafan and al-Hijla, while pushing back the demoralized enemy forces after killing their top-rung leaders.

In a humanitarian gesture, the government forces also announced that the wounded mercenaries besieged in al-Abdiyah would be allowed to leave the area to receive medical treatment in Sanaa.

“Any mercenary who leaves the battlefield will be given a chance to survive,” Saree told reporters, stressing that strict instructions were given to government forces not to kill the wounded.

The spokesman also noted that the operations to fully liberate areas currently under enemy control in the central Yemeni province will continue, hailing the resilience shown by people in the face of draconian sanctions and a crippling blockade.

“Freedom is possible only by rejecting foreign occupying forces and cleansing our land from the filth of the aggressors and their allies,” Saree remarked, adding that the Saudi-led coalition forces had carried out 948 airstrikes, targeting civilian homes and roads, during the latest operation.

The “most notable” result of the operation, Saree stressed, was the liberation of the geographical area in the previous operation dubbed “Al Bass Al Shadeed,” looking down upon Marib city, and shooting down 6 US-made spy fighter planes and 11 spy planes.

He said the shooting down of enemy planes “created fear in the ranks of aggressors”, preventing more strikes.

Giving further details about the operation, the military spokesman said the missile unit had carried out 68 offensives, targeting enemy bases, barracks and headquarters, out of which 49 offensives were carried out in the occupied territories of Yemen and 19 deep inside the Saudi territory.

The offensive from the Yemeni government forces came after relentless attacks in recent days by the Saudi-backed aggressors in the province, which damaged residential properties and farms and rendered hundreds of people homeless.

Ever since some regions in the strategic province of Marib, which sits at a crossroads between the southern and northern regions, were liberated by the Yemeni forces recently, Saudi Arabia and its allies have significantly stepped up their military aggression.

The six-year foreign-imposed war has killed tens of thousands of people in Yemen, according to global relief agencies.

The UN children’s agency UNICEF describes the war as “a living hell” for children, with 1.8 million under-fives suffering severe malnutrition.

While Saudi-led allies have lost much of the territory they had occupied following the 2015 invasion, Yemeni armed forces and the allied popular committees have grown in strength.

Yemenis were punished for claiming their right to self-determination, punished for demanding to live in a free, prosperous, and democratic nation.

On July 30th, 2014, the Yemeni government at the time introduced several austerity measures as a prerequisite for obtaining a loan from IMF. One of these measures was to increase the fuel prices, a service that has been historically subsidized for many years.  Having witnessed the collapse of Ali Abdullah Saleh’s government in 2012 and an uneasy National Dialogue while state affairs were effectively put to a standstill, the Yemeni people poured into the streets in defiance. Not solely in defiance against an increase in fuel prices, which would severely impact the quality of life in the already poverty-stricken country, but in defiance against malign foreign interference which has, yet again, made life difficult for the ordinary Yemeni citizen.

Spearheaded by the Ansarallah movement, the Yemeni people reignited the spirit of revolution in every corner of the Yemeni Republic. They had suffered under a regime of guardianship to Saudi Arabia, the United States, and its state-run NGOs & think tanks for many decades. This time was different. There was no reluctance amongst protesters and citizens alike, and the end goals were unified. Ansarallah’s leader, Sayyed Abdul Malek Baddreddin Alhouthi, made plea after plea on television to the government of Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi: “Either you withdraw your austerity measures, or the people will be forced to take matters in their own hands”.

And so, they did. On September 21st, 2014, the Ansarallah and “People’s Committees” stormed the capital in Toyota technicals and armed with Kalashnikov rifles, and effectively seized control of the country. The ensuing night sky lit up with fireworks and cries of joy. The takeover of the capital remained largely peaceful, with only sporadic clashes in the preceding offensive. It marked the first time an armed revolution had seen tangible results in the country since South Yemen gained its independence from the United Kingdom on November 30th, 1967.

What then happened has so far remained largely ignored in the corporate western press. Soldiers of the Yemeni Army joined hands with the Ansarallah and were tasked to guard state institutions and other public buildings. The Ansarallah and a number of political parties organized their own national dialogues in order to find an agreeable lasting solution to Yemen’s many dire problems.

Banners were raised on all major streets with the inscription “Iradat Ash-Shaab” – “The will of the people”. Streets were renamed after Yemen’s long list of anti-imperialist icons, nationalist and socialist alike. A course was set to free the country from the scourge of foreign guardianship and to reinstate true independence with respect to the people’s right to self-determination. The Peace and National Partnership Agreement, proposed by the UN and signed by all parties, constituted the new legal framework on which Yemen was to base its newfound trajectory. Everything was looking positive. Former UN envoy to Yemen Jamal Benomar once proclaimed that the many Yemeni political parties were close to a power-sharing deal that would effectively see the reintroduction of a bipartisan democratic system with its first free election in years.

Yemen’s president Hadi had resigned from his position as president to the Yemeni House of Representatives in January of 2015, and in February that same year, the Ansarallah went forth with a constitutional declaration that would see the revolutionary leadership “vanguardized” and the system reformed under classic socialist and anti-imperialist lines. The government was absolved, and the Revolutionary Committee was to take charge of all state affairs on an interim and transitional basis. The people were now in direct control of all state affairs, circumventing the kleptocratic bureaucracy built by Saleh and preceded by Hadi.

Escaping house arrest, Yemen’s resigned president Hadi then fled to Aden on the 21st of February, where he proclaimed to remain the president and called upon Saudi Arabia to form an international coalition that would see him reinstated. And on March 26th, 2015, the war of aggression against Yemen began officially, as announced by the Saudi Embassy in Washington DC.

Yemen has been bombed for six years straight ever since, despite international outcry and condemnation. A war that has left hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians dead and even more wounded. A war that also brought about a Saudi-enforced blockade on Yemen, effectively manufacturing famine across the country. More than 20 million Yemenis live in famine-like conditions, as vital imports are restricted and barred from entry by the Saudi-American Coalition. And all the war has done, so far, was to prove Yemen’s Ansarallah and its allies right in its assessments. That Yemen is being punished militarily for daring to break free from foreign guardianship. Yemenis were punished for claiming their right to self-determination, punished for demanding to live in a free, prosperous, and democratic nation.

The war has also failed to crush the Yemeni people’s revolutionary spirit. In around August and September 2015, the Yemeni Armed Forces stated their total support for the Revolution and began mobilizing soldiers to Yemen’s border regions in defense of their country. It would mark the starting point of the Yemeni armed struggle in defiance against imperialist aggression. It was a struggle that the Yemeni people have been waging, as the international community continued to deny their rights and their plight; a struggle that has gone unnoticed in many circles across the western world, and unfortunately amongst likewise anti-imperialists as well; a struggle condemned by the international community on baseless grounds, influenced by the lobbyist apparatus of the Saudi regime.

Yemen has suffered under the guardianship of Saudi Arabia for more than 4 decades. History shows that anyone who opposes this system of tutelage has been dealt with in the most horrifying manner possible. Presidents, intellectuals, opposition leaders, and academics have been assassinated by the Saudi regime for daring to reclaim their right as independent people.

September 21st Revolution remains the beacon and the guiding light to which the Yemeni people have waged their People’s Struggle. A correctional revolution meant to straighten out the path first laid by previous revolutions. September 21st is important because it marks a turning point of Yemeni contemporary history, in defiance against America and its imperialist aspirations. The revolution emphasized the importance of self-reliance over reliance on foreign countries. It is a worker’s revolution that unified an otherwise fragmented people.

From an increase in fuel prices to an all-out People’s War, the Yemeni people refuse to bow under pressure.The opinions mentioned in this article do not necessarily reflect the opinion of Al mayadeen, but rather express the opinion of its writer exclusively.

اليمن مفاجأة القرن الاستراتيجية

البناء
سبتمبر 21, 2021 

 ناصر قنديل

لم يكن في حساب أحد من أصدقاء أنصار الله وخصومهم، قبل سبع سنوات في مثل هذا اليوم، أن حدثاً يعدون له سيكون له هذا التأثير في معادلات المنطقة، واستراتيجيات الدول الكبرى، ومكانة وموقع وأحجام دول ثوابت في المعادلة الإقليمية، وتغيير في قوانين حرب البحار وأمن الطاقة، فخلال ساعات من هذا اليوم كان الآلاف من أبناء العاصمة صنعاء وجوارها بقيادة أنصار الله، يحكمون سيطرتهم على المدينة التاريخية التي كان الكثيرون يعتقدون أنها عصية عليهم، وخلال أيام كان هذا الموج المتعاظم يزحف على جميع مناطق ومحافظات اليمن ويلقى التأييد والترحيب، لتلتحق عدن بصنعاء، ويلاقيهما باب المندب، وفجأة نكون على موعد مع صورة جديدة لليمن، الواقع على تقاطعات شديدة التعقيد، فوقعت المفاجأة الاستراتيجية الأولى.

خلال شهور قليلة كان الاستعداد على قدم وساق لقلب المعادلة التي فرضها أنصار الله بقوة التأييد الشعبي العابر للأحزاب والمذاهب والمحافظات، وجاءت الحرب التي أعلنت باسم تحالف دعم الشرعية بقيادة السعودية، وحظيت بدعم عربي ودولي باعتبارها حرباً ستحسم خلال أسابيع قليلة، وفي أسوأ حال خلال شهور محدودة، لإعادة فرض الهيمنة الأميركية السعودية- الإماراتية على قلب الخليج، من مضيق باب المندب إلى بحر عمان والبحر الأحمر، ولكن الحرب التي فشلت خلال سنتها الأولى امتدت لسنوات وهي تتحول إلى حرب إبادة شاملة للشعب اليمني، وتدمير كامل لكل مقومات الحياة في اليمن، لكن المفاجأة الاستراتيجية الثانية تمثلت بأن اليمن المحاصر براً وبحراً وجواً، والممنوع من الحصول على أبسط مقومات الحياة، من الغذاء والدواء والمحروقات والكهرباء، فرض إرادته وصنع سلاحه وتحول اليمن إلى قوة إقليمية كبرى، تتحكم بأمن النفط والبحار والسفن والمدن الكبرى في الخليج، وصار سلاح الصواريخ والطائرات المسيرة يختصر معادلة الأمن الخليجي، الذي يمثل ركيزة في أمن الطاقة والتجارة في العالم، وكانت المفاجأة الاستراتيجية الثانية.

لم تمر سنوات الحرب على اليمنيين، على رغم الحصار والجوع والقتل والتدمير على حساب التزاماتهم بالقضايا الكبرى التي طالما تصدروا الساحات والميادين دفاعاً عنها، وفي مقدمتها القضية الفلسطينية، فبقي اليمينون طليعة الحاضرين لمساندة قضية فلسطين، وضجت شوارعهم وساحاتهم بالحشود في كل مناسبة تخص فلسطين، وتفاقم القلق في كيان الاحتلال من انضمام اليمن في أي حرب مقبلة مع قوى المقاومة، ليشكل طوق معادلة الردع جنوباً، في ظل ظهور فعالية سلاح الصواريخ والطائرات المسيرة، وحجم تأثير هذا السلاح بكفاءاته العالية على ميزان القوى في حال انضمامه  للمواجهة المقبلة، ولم يتأخر اليمنيون في الإعلان عن عزمهم على تشكيل العمق الاستراتيجي لقوى المقاومة في الحرب المقبلة، وإعلان انتمائهم المؤسس في محور المقاومة، وصولاً إلى إعلان مشاركتهم في المعادلة التي أطلقها الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله، تحت شعار العدوان على القدس يعادل حرباً إقليمية، وجاءت المفاجأة الاستراتيجية الثالثة.

خلال كل هذه المراحل وضراوة المواجهات وقساوة الظروف، برز القائد اليمني السيد عبد الملك الحوثي كفائة وموهبة قيادية استثنائية، ثقافة وحضوراً وتأثيراً، وحزماً وعزماً وذكاء وقدرة على المناورة وإدارة الأزمات والمفاوضات، وبرزت شعبيته المذهلة وظهر انضباط هياكل البنى التنظيمية والعسكرية لأنصار الله من حوله، وخلال سنوات تميز فيها السيد عبد الملك الحوثي بالصبر والتواضع والترفع، بدأ نجمه كقائد مميز يشغل اهتمام مراكز الدرسات الغربية، بصفته الزعيم الأول في منطقة الخليج، فهو قائد اليمن أكبر دول الخليج، وفي اليمن كما يقال أضخم ثروات نفط وغاز غير مستثمرة، فكان السيد عبد الملك الحوثي المفاجأة الاستراتيجية الرابعة.

لولا اليمن لما حقق محور المقاومة النجاحات الكبرى التي حققها في معادلات المنطقة، وسيكتب لليمن أنه وراء صياغة معادلات وخرائط الخليج الجديدة، ومنها توازنات عربية مقبلة ستكون المفاجأة الاستراتيجية الخامسة، تكتمل بها معالم مفاجأة القرن.

Imposing Human Rights conditions on Afghan Government.

September 15, 2021

Imposing Human Rights conditions on Afghan Government.

By Zamir Awan for the Saker Blog

The US is exerting pressure on the Afghan Government for respecting human rights. Also, the US is lobbying with its allies to exert pressure on Afghanistan and should not recognize their legitimacy unless they meet few demands, among which is Human rights at the top of the list.

What the US was doing in Afghanistan for twenty years? Was it in respect of Human rights? Bombing Marriage parties, funeral ceremonies, Mosques, Shrines, Schools, Hospitals, was respecting Human rights? Dropping Mother of all bombs, extensive use of force, weapons, and ammunition was it the respect of Human rights? Use of dirty tricks, and high-tech weapons and technologies, was in respect to Human rights? The US was maintaining several jails in Afghanistan, was it in respect of Human Rights? Keeping many detention centers, was it in respect of Human rights? Creation of so many torture cells, was it the rest of Human rights? So many investigation centers, was am to protect human rights? The US involved 46 countries to attack Afghanistan was it human rights exercise? Additional 11 countries also supported in war against Afghanistan, was it aimed to protect human rights? Keeping 150,000 troops in Afghanistan (peek time), was it respecting human rights? Killing innocent citizens, children, civilians, women, elder people, was part of the American Human Rights adventure? Use of drones and killing Taxi driver along with his two young children, was it also the respect of Human right? Excessive use of powers, draconian laws, and extrajudicial killings, was part of US policy of Human Rights? How many women were raped, insulted, humiliated, is this American rest to Human rights? Child abuse was a common phenomenon, is this the American way of resting human rights? Shame! Shame! Shame!

The US has no moral authority to talk about Human Rights and put extraordinary conditions on the Afghan Government and irrational excuses to coerce Afghans. The entire world knows, what happened in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and in many other countries, the American role is very much obvious and known to everyone. The US is a partner in extreme violations of Human rights in Palestine and Kashmir. The US is extending extraordinary support to Israel and India, which are notorious for Human rights violations. Yet, if the US is talking about human rights, is beyond our imaginations. A country, who is committing the worst human rights violations, is talking about Human rights, is not matching its actions and words. Even, inside America, what so ever is happening with minorities, immigrants, and black people, is well-known to everyone.

American human rights violations and war crimes in Afghanistan must be trial and fix responsibilities on all individuals involved. Punish them according to respective law according to the degree of crime and level of involvement.

However, in Afghanistan, life is rapidly restoring toward normalcy. 20 years of American illegitimate occupation has ended and the Taliban are restoring peace, stability, and law & order situation, which is improving gradually. Now people feel safer and secure. Government offices are functioning properly. Women are working with full confidence as usual. Girls are getting an education in a routine matter. Taliban government has ensured the safety of all its citizens. People of Afghanistan are happy and have welcomed the Taliban.

Taliban are real representatives of Afghanistan and very much loyal and sincere with their country and enjoy public support and trust. Unlike President Noor Muhamad Turkey, President Hafizullah Amin, President Babrak Karmal, and President Dr. Najeeb, who were traitors and planted by the USSR, and were working on foreign agenda, the Taliban are keeping the Afghan interest at the top. Unlike President Hamid Karzai, and President Ashraf Ghani, who were CIA agents, and puppets, and installed by the US. Both of them were implementing and serving their masters. Taliban are Afghans and serving Afghans only.

If the US demands to include such traitors, it may not be possible, as it is illogical to bring traitors and foreign agents back. Taliban fought for twenty years for freedom and finally defeated the US. Taliban has sacrificed many precious lives, close relatives, suffered jails, tortures, and exiles, and now after victory, they have the right to form their own government. It is their legal and legitimate right, the world must accept this fact and realize it, the sooner the better.

Taliban are true Afghans, they understand their culture, traditions, and tribal society, and they will form a system of government, which suits Afghanistan. There is no need for any dictation from the outside world. Let Afghans lead their country and manage their affairs in the best possible manner, which suits them. Outside interference needs to reach an end. The status of human rights in Afghanistan under Taliban rule is much better than in the last twenty years of American occupation. People feel relaxed and thank the Taliban for providing them dignity, safety, respect, and protection. Under American occupation, no one was sure that if he or she leaves home, and come back safe. Any time anywhere anything can happen, as the US troops were wild and treating Afghans just like sheep and goats, mistreating them, insulting and humiliating them. Especially, the women can be raped, tortured, humiliated by troops. How many young Afghan girls were smuggled and trafficked to America and Europe to work in the sex industry? Can Americans justify it as human rights? Taliban has provided respect and protection to women. Majority of women are very happy with Taliban rule. Exceptions must be there, we may not deny exceptional cases, but vast majority of women are happy and satisfied.

Taliban were freedom fighters and won the long war of twenty years against a superpower and they are competent and equipped with all modern knowledge. They understand how to manage a country and how to run a country. Of course, they are facing huge challenges, but these challenges are created artificially by the US and its allies. Like freezing Afghan assets, using IMF, World Bank, International Financial Institutions, and donors, to coerce Afghans.

The US has planned something else, but what happens is the opposite. The US evacuated its troops from Afghanistan in a haphazard manner to create a vacuum, leading toward civil war. The US deployed around twenty thousand private defense contractors to create unrest and civil war in Afghanistan. The US shifted ISIS-K to Afghanistan, equipped them, funded them, and provided those training, to create unrest and civil war in Afghanistan. But on the ground Taliban has managed very well and avoided any civil war or unrest on the ground. The US is desperate, taking measures to destabilize the new government in Afghanistan.

The US is using various tricks to destabilize Afghanistan, it includes economic measures, human rights excuses, women’s rights, etc. to create unrest. The US is pursuing allies and other countries to exert pressure on Afghanistan to achieve its ill-designs. Pakistan is facing such pressure from the US. Unfortunate!

However, the Taliban performed very well on grounds, and the world has seen and witnessed that the Taliban are capable and honest, kind, gentle, competent. Taliban got international recognition already. The Qatar deputy foreign Minister has already paid an official visit. Many other countries are ready to establish good relations with the new Government as soon as they announce formally.

The Whole region suffered a lot due to the American invasion of Afghanistan for twenty years, and cannot afford any further unrest. All the regional countries with a stable, safe, and prosperous Afghanistan. If few countries like America, want to spoil it, may not succeed.

Yemeni Resistance Deals Heavy Blow To Aggressors: 16 Drones, Ballistic Missiles Target Saudi Depth

Yemeni Resistance Deals Heavy Blow To Aggressors: 16 Drones, Ballistic Missiles Target Saudi Depth

By Staff, Agencies

In yet another heroic achievement scored against the Saudi aggressors, the Yemeni resistance, represented by the Armed Forces, used 16 drones and ballistic missiles to hit targets deep inside Saudi Arabia in their latest operation, Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Yehya Saree announced.

“As part of confronting the crimes of [the Saudi-led] aggression against our country, our Armed Forces carried out the 7th Operation Balanced Deterrence, targeting vital facilities and military bases of the Saudi enemy,” Brigadier General Saree said in a televised statement on Sunday.

Saree explained that the operation targeted vital installations and military bases of Saudi Arabia, including Saudi Aramco facilities in Jeddah, Jizan and Najran regions, which he said were bombed with five Badr ballistic missiles and two Sammad-3 drones.

He added that Saudi Aramco facilities in Ras al-Tanura in the Dammam region, eastern Saudi Arabia, were also targeted with eight Sammad-3 drones and a Zulfiqar ballistic missile.

The spokesman stressed that Yemeni forces successfully hit their targets in both attacks.

In a statement on Saturday, Riyadh claimed that its air defenses had intercepted and destroyed three ballistic missiles and three explosive-laden drones launched towards Dammam, Jizan and Najran regions.

Yemen has been beset by violence and chaos since 2015, when Saudi Arabia and its allies launched a devastating war against the poorest Middle Eastern country to reinstall Yemen’s overthrown government of Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in Sanaa and crush the Ansarullah resistance movement.

The war, accompanied by a tight siege, has failed to reach its goals and killed hundreds of thousands of Yemeni people, putting millions more at risk of starvation by destroying much of the country’s infrastructure.

The new operation came after the Yemeni Armed Forces repeatedly warned Saudi Arabia to stop the war and siege against the country or face larger and more extensive operations.

The Yemeni forces have stepped up their retaliatory attacks deep inside Saudi Arabia in recent months.

In his Sunday remarks, Saree said the new operation succeeded in achieving its goals, warning Saudi Arabia of the consequences of its continued military campaign against the Yemeni people.

He underlined that Yemen is entitled to carry out more military operations to defend itself and its people until the war and siege against the country come to an end.

“The Yemeni Armed Forces will continue their jihadist battle until the liberation of all the lands of the republic and the achievement of freedom and independence,” Saree affirmed.

Last month, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Martin Griffiths said that about 5 million Yemenis are “just one step away” from succumbing to famine and related diseases.

“Ten million more are right behind them,” Griffiths warned.

According to Henrietta Fore, the executive director of UNICEF, one child dies every 10 minutes in Yemen from preventable causes, including malnutrition and vaccine-preventable diseases, which are the ramifications of the war on Yemen.

In another development, the spokesman for Yemen’s Ansarullah resistance movement affirmed the Yemeni people’s right to defend themselves so long as Saudi Arabia insists on continuing the war.

“Just as they insist on continuing their aggression and siege, our Yemeni people continue to defend themselves,” Mohammed Abdul-Salam tweeted on Sunday.

The latest operation against Saudi Arabia coincided with the liberation of the southern district of Rahba district by the Yemeni Army and allied popular committees, he said.

A security official in Marib Province told Yemen News Agency [SABA] that all the residents of Rahba can return to their homes and farms and practice their normal lives after the district was completely secured by Yemeni forces.

Yemen Defense Forces Not Far From Recapturing Whole Marib – Report

Yemen Defense Forces Not Far From Recapturing Whole Marib - Report

By Staff, Agencies

Yemen’s allied defense forces decisively escalated their counterattacks on Saudi Arabia’s allies in Marib, the capital of a hugely strategic west-central Yemeni province of the same name, and are reportedly on the verge of recapturing the whole city.

The Yemeni army and Popular Committees were reported on Tuesday to have advanced as far as the city’s “government buildings.”

The advancements were made possible, despite heavy Saudi bombardment of the flashpoints in the city from above, Yemen Press Agency reported. It came after the forces successfully pushed back against the kingdom’s allies there, namely Riyadh-backed militants and al-Qaeda terrorists, the outlet added.

The terrorists, it added, have been forced to abandon their positions and beat a retreat towards the city’s administrative buildings.

The Yemeni forces “are not far from” reestablishing Sanaa’s sovereignty over the city, Yemeni media sources noted.

The two sides are now engaged in intense confrontation “using heavy weaponry,” local sources noted.

The Saudi-led coalition, meanwhile, tried to shift the Yemeni allies’ attention away from their pending victory by trying to create diversionary clashes in other places. It, however, failed in its bid, the Yemeni outlets said.

The locals said the coalition’s forces had suffered considerable human and material losses during the developments. “A large number” of the enemy’s military commanders were either killed or injured during the advances, they announced.

The coalition invaded Yemen in March 2015 in a self-proclaimed bid to restore power in the country to Saudi Arabia’s favorite officials.

Seven years on, however, it is still nowhere close to realizing that avowed aim.

The invasion has, meanwhile, killed tens of thousands of Yemenis in the process. The military aggression and a simultaneous siege of Yemen has also turned the Arab world’s already poorest nation into the scene of, what the United Nations has deplored as, the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

The Yemeni forces have invariably retaliated heavily against the war, striking targets that lie as far as the capital of the kingdom itself and its war ally, the United Arab Emirates.

Pledging never to lay down their arms until Yemen’s complete liberation, the forces have been focusing on Marib and its surrounding province’s recapture for many months now.

Given its strategic location, the province’s liberation is expected to open the floodgates of further victories for the Yemenis.

According to Yemen’s Ambassador to Tehran, Ibrahim al-Deilami, the war in Marib is currently underway in “more than 50 fronts.”

The Yemeni counterblows have managed to fully liberate as many as nine of the province’s 14 districts so far.

STC forces attacked the Al-Anad airbase, killing 49 people and wounding 65 more. The Houthi movement has continued to attack the base.

Today, Al Mayadeen sources reported that more than 100 people were killed and wounded as a result of a missile attack on the al-Anad Saudi coalition military base in the Lahij governorate. Some wounded are in critical condition.

It was reported by a Yemeni medical source that 49 people were killed in the attack and 65 were injured. The number of missing people whose corpses were torn was not included in the final death toll.

Three ballistic missiles fired from the al-Hawban area in Taiz, southwest of Yemen, struck the al-Anad base, according to military leaders of the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council.

The military leaders of the STC forces accused the Sana’a government forces of continuing to attack and bomb the al-Anad base, which the STC utilizes as a base for its troops, while STC spokesperson Mohammed Al-Naqib did not rule out the absence of Houthi-Brotherhood cooperation in the operation.

It is worth noting that the Saudi coalition’s targeting of al-Anad, an important air and military base, is the second after it was hit in 2019 by a drone that targeted a military parade. Several high-ranking military leaders in President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi’s forces were killed, including the Deputy Chief of Staff, Major General Saleh Al-Zindani.

The Yemen Supreme Political Council President, Mahdi al-Mashat, received a thank-you letter from Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in reply to his congratulatory letter on his victory in the presidential elections.

Al-Masirah reported that the Iranian President lauded the steadfastness of the Yemeni people against the aggression for the 7th year in a row, stressing his country’s solidarity with the Yemeni people’s plight in their battle against the brutal blockade and acts of aggression. He also stressed his keenness on expanding the horizons of cooperation between the two brotherly countries and peoples in different fields, in service of their common interests.

The Iranian President had received, early this month, “Ansar Allah” Spokesperson Mohammad Abdul Salam, who headed the national Yemeni delegation. During the meeting, President Raisi said that the epic resistance and steadfastness the Yemeni people have embodied so far have astounded the world.

Raisi had declared in his inauguration speech on August 5 that his administration “will stand beside the oppressed wherever they may be, in Europe, America, Africa, Yemen, Syria, or Palestine.”

Yemen: Biden Shrugs Off Campaign Promise as US Backs New Saudi Offensive and AQAP Support

The US has refused calls to stop arming Saudi Arabia amid its devastating war in Yemen and is now doubling down on a military solution, falling back on its reliance of armed militant groups that it used to devastating effect in Syria, Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq.

AL-BAYDA, YEMEN — President Joe Biden gave a lot of people a sense of cautious optimism when he took to the campaign trail and promised to bring a swift end to the Saudi-led war on Yemen. The oil-rich monarchy, supported heavily by the United States, has been waging arguably the deadliest military campaign of the past decade on the forgotten country for over six years, exacting a brutal humanitarian toll on its civilian population.

To his credit, Biden sent Tim Lenderking to lead a team of negotiators in an attempt to broker reconciliation between the conflict’s many belligerents. But without the political will to stand up to the Saudi monarchy and the varied American interests that profit handsomely from its wars, Lenderking had little chance of success. Now it seems the Kingdom — once again emboldened, armed, and covered by the United States — has all but abandoned any pretense of reconciliation and doubled down on its brutal war.

A Piercing Star falls to earth

Last week, the Saudi-led Coalition began a massive military operation they’re calling al-Najm al-Thaqib, which translates from Arabic into The Piercing Star. The operation ostensibly aims to recapture large swaths of territory in central Yemen’s al-Bayda province, which was captured by Ansar Allah after a series of long and grueling battles with militants from al-Qaeda on the Arabia Peninsula (AQAP) last fall. AQAP had been entrenched in the province for decades, somehow persevering through concerted military efforts by both the Saudi-led Coalition and at least four consecutive U.S. administrations to dislodge it — including Barack Obama’s infamous drone war.

On August 28, 2020, local tribal partisans backed by Ansar Allah defeated AQAP and myriad extremist allies, including elements of IS, in a week-long operation. This victory came just as AQAP was preparing to sweep the Yemeni provinces of al-Bayda, Dhamar, and Sana’a in an operation that aimed to repeat the scenarios seen in Mosul, Iraq and Raqqa, Syria, where ISIS was able to take and hold a so-called caliphate extending from western Iraq to into eastern Syria.

Al-Bayda and the surrounding provinces saw a state of relative calm in the wake of the operation, as residents experienced life without the yoke of al-Qaeda, some for the first time in their lives. Now, some of those residents fear that Saudi Arabia, backed by the United States, is attempting to resettle those groups in al-Bayda as a hedge against Ansar Allah.

Saudi jets have carried out scores of airstrikes in al-Bayda in recent weeks, flying in from the north to unleash tons of bombs made and supplied by the United States and giving AQAP a potential avenue to retake the province, as the airstrikes have targeted Ansar Allah and their local tribal allies almost exclusively.

According to the nonprofit Yemeni Executive Mine Action Center (YEMAC), American-made cluster bombs — which even the U.S. military has pledged not to use, due to their high rate of collateral damage — including the CBU-58, CBU-105, CBU-87, M26, and DPICM M77, have all been used in the offensive.

In a press conference, YEMAC displayed unexploded American bombs used in the operation, including the same GBU-39 and GBU-31 that were used with deadly effect in Israel’s recent attacks on Gaza. YEMAC held the press conference after an unexploded U.S.-made GBU-24 was recovered from a civil-defense building in Sana’a.

While there is not yet conclusive evidence of direct coordination between the Saudi Coalition and AQAP in the offensive, AQAP militants began pushing into al-Bayda from the south almost as soon as the Saudi airstrikes began. The southern villages of al-Zaher and al-Sma’h — including the areas of Jumaima, Wafaa, Sharadeh, al-Sous, Shabakat Dhi Madahi, Akrama, Shawkan and others — have already been recaptured by al-Qaeda according to a number of Saudi state-funded media outlets, which celebrated the putsch as a victory for the Saudi-led Coalition.

No “Certain Victory”

However, the celebrations were short-lived, as Ansar Allah has already begun to recapture areas it gained last August in a military operation it has dubbed al-Nasr al-Mubin, an Arabic phrase meaning “Certain Victory.” That operation has already seen the defeat of AQAP and militants allied with Saudi Arabia in the al-Zahir Directorate as well as dozens of military sites in the al-Dahaki and Al-Soma`h districts, and even areas that Ansar Allah failed to capture from AQAP during its August offensive, according to a statement it issued on Tuesday.

On Friday, the media bureau of the Houthis’ Operations Command Center published a video showing some of its victories in al-Bayda. Several senior AQAP commanders were killed or captured in the battles, including the infamous Abu Dharr al-Tayabi, Tawfiq al-Farawi and Othman Ahmad Abdullah al-Mushdali. A spokesman for Ansar Allah said:

Despite having mobilized members of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and Daesh (IS) Takfiri terrorist groups, Saudi [Arabia] failed and has so far reaped nothing other than defeat on every front. The coalition has received severe blows in al-Bayda, even though it has hired al-Qaeda and Daesh terrorists.”

But Ansar Allah is far from a decisive victory. Fierce clashes continue near Lahj province and coalition warplanes continue to pound al-Bayda.

US cooperation with a Jihadi recruiter

According to members of the Houthi negotiating delegation, who spoke to MintPress on condition of anonymity, the escalation in al-Bayda is being used to pressure Ansar Allah to halt its advance on the oil-rich Marib province and to force it to accept conditions that Saudi Arabia and Lenderking’s envoy have imposed on Ansar Allah as a precondition for a peace deal.

For their part, the Houthis have promised to retaliate by resuming drone and ballistic missile attacks on Saudi oil and military targets in the Kingdom’s southern provinces, according to Brigadier General Abed Al-Thor and General Aziz Rashid, who told MintPress that military pressure on the Kingdom will only be increased in the wake of the recent Saudi escalation.

The attacks on al-Bayda come in the wake of meetings between the Saudi-backed vice president of Yemen, Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, and Vice Admiral Brad Cooper, commander of the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command and the U.S. 5th Fleet and Combined Maritime Forces. Cooper pushed for intelligence sharing and support for armed militant groups under the banner of curbing the arming of the Houthis by the Iranian government.

Al-Ahmar has been tied to various extremist groups in Yemen and, according to Reuters, “The Muslim Brotherhood and other Sunni Islamists gained strength, particularly under … al-Ahmar, who built a power base in the army. Jihadist fugitives formed al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).” According to a 2000 New York Times report, al-Ahmar even “traveled to Afghanistan in the 1980s to meet Osama bin Laden, and assisted in recruiting militants from across the Muslim world for the Afghan struggle.”

The U.S. has long been involved in the training and arming of militants in Yemen, whom it saw as a hedge against Ansar Allah. Al-Ahmar has publicly praised the U.S. for cooperating with him to combat what he called “the Iranian project.”

Grim prospects for peace

On July 1, U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price said that the United States was “beyond fed up” with the Houthis’ advance in Marib and laid the blame for the humanitarian situation in Yemen squarely at the feet of the Houthis, claiming it was they who failed to work with the “other parties … who are actively working towards peace,” a reference to Saudi Arabia and its allies in the country.

Price’s statements and the Biden administration’s about-face on Yemen has raised questions among activists struggling to stop the war, especially as the U.S. has largely refused calls to stop arming Saudi Arabia amid a devastating civilian death toll, and now seems to be doubling down on its commitment to a military solution to the conflict, falling back on its habit of supporting armed militant groups that it used to devastating effect in Syria, Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq.

“The Biden administration should have stopped providing weapons and training to the warring parties to ensure that the war would not continue, and not support one at the expense of the other, so logic and reality say,” Dala al-Matari, an activist from the Stop the Bombing of Yemen campaign said. Like many Yemenis, al-Matari believes that President Biden used his seeming opposition to the highly controversial war as a trump card to boost his chances in last year’s presidential election.

For its part, Ansar Allah has outright accused the Biden administration of giving a green light to Saudi forces to attack al-Bayda so that it can more easily provide al-Qaeda and IS with weapons and intelligence information. Officials in Sana’a say the Biden administration is playing with fire by not only destroying peace efforts but also resettling and supporting al-Qaeda, especially amid a Taliban resurgence in Afghanistan.

Dhaif Allah al-Shami — the spokesman for the Sana’a-based Yemeni government run jointly by Ansar Allah and the General People’s Congress, the largest political party in the country — said that the United States had “run the recent military escalation in al-Bayda.” He accused the Biden administration of being behind the plan, stating: “The United States, which falsely and wrongly claims to be concerned with peace in Yemen, is [the one] fueling the bitter clashes in the al-Zahir district of the province.”

Major General Nasser Al-Atif, minister of defense in the Ansar Allah-led government, said in a statement on Monday:

We have a new strategy to face the new Saudi escalation that will cost the coalition a heavy price if they continue to support terrorist elements, and this is something they should understand well. Saudi Arabia and the United States claim that they are keen on peace, stopping the war, and addressing the inhumane issues, but in fact they are talking all this just for media consumption and the exploitation of international and regional positions.

اليمن آخر الحروب وأول التسويات

 لا يحبّ اللبنانيون تصديق أن بلدهم يشكل جبهة ثانوية في الصراع الكبير الدائر في المنطقة. ورغم الأبعاد الداخليّة الحقيقية للأزمات السياسية والاقتصادية والمالية التي تعصف بلبنان. والتي يأمل البعض أن تشكل أبواباً للتغيير. يبقى أن النظام الطائفي والمتخم بمظاهر الفساد والمحكوم بسياسات اقتصاديّة ومالية فاشلة. بقي على قيد الحياة بقرار خارجي. كان يراهن على تقييد المقاومة بمعادلات لبنانيّة داخلية. أو بمتغيرات ينجح بفرضها في الإقليم. نظراً للكلفة العالية لكل تفكير بمواجهة مباشرة مع المقاومة في لبنان. وعدم وجود نتائج موثوقة لمثل هذه المواجهة. وعندما وصل الرهان على متغيرات الحرب في سورية أو على معادلات الداخل. ونجحت المقاومة بفرض معادلات داخلية أشد قوة مع التسوية الرئاسية وقانون الانتخاب القائم على النسبية. قرّر هذا الخارج وبصورة خاصة الراعي الأميركي والمموّل الخليجي. وقف تمويل هذا النظام. فانكشفت عوراته. وانفجرت أزماته. لكن المصيبة الأعظم هو أن هذا الخارج عندما يفرغ من ترتيبات التسويات ووضع قواعد الاشتباك في المنطقة. وقد قرّر السير بها كبديل عن خيار المواجهة الذي ثبت فشله وظهر أنه طريق مسدود. سيعود لتمويل هذا النظام وتعويمه. لكنه يريد للمفاوضات أن تجري والمقاومة منشغلة بهموم النظام وارتداداتها على الشعب اللبناني.

 سورية التي تشكل عقدة المنطقة الرئيسية بتوازناتها ومكانتها من كل عناوين الصراع الإقليمي، شكلت بيضة القبان في رسم التوازنات التي أسقطت الرهانات على خطط المواجهة. وأجبرت بالانتصارات التي تحققت فيها حلف الحرب عليها بالتراجع وأصابته بالتفكك وفرضت عليه التسليم بالفشل. لكن صورة التسوية في سورية مؤجلة. رغم ما فرضه الشعب السوري في يوم الانتخابات الرئاسية من معادلات ترسم ثوابت أي تسوية بما يتصل بشكل النظام السياسي ومرجعياته. ورغم الاستدارة التي يقوم بها أطراف كثيرون شاركوا بالحرب ويعودون الى دمشق ويفتحون سفاراتهم ويغيّرون خطابهم، إلا أن سورية ترسم أوزاناً جديدة لكل قوى العالم الجديد. ففيها الاحتلال الأميركي والإحتلال التركي ومستقبل الدويلة الكردية والجماعات الإرهابية، ومنها تتقرر قواعد الاشتباك بين محور المقاومة وكيان الاحتلال في الجولان وحول مستقبل الغارات على سورية، وفيها الوجود الروسي والإيراني والمقاوم. ويعتقد الأميركي أنه بالعقوبات واحتجاز النازحين والإمساك بتمويل إعادة الإعمار يملك القدرة على المفاوضة على شرعنة النصر السوري وثمن هذه الشرعنة وشروطها. ولذلك تبدو التسوية حول سورية مؤجلة لما بعد حلقات تسبقها. تضع قطار التسويات على السكة. وتطلق صفارة الانطلاق.

 تقع إيران في قلب الصراع وتشكل قاعدة الارتكاز فيه. ويشكل ملفها النووي عنوان الصراع الذي يختزن ما هو أبعد من النووي، ليطال مستقبل مكانة إيران في المنطقة. وقد كانت كل محاولات الضغط بحجة النووي لتطويع إيران وإضعافها. فيما يشكل التراجع عن العقوبات تحت عنوان العودة للاتفاق النووي تعبيراً عن التسليم بالفشل وسعياً للانخراط في تسويات يدور التفاوض حول مضامينها. وكل الوقائع تقول إن الاتفاق بات منجزاً بنصوصه وتفاصيله. وإن روزنامة التنفيذ الجزئي قبل الإعلان عن العودة للاتفاق قد بدأت. سواء عبر تحرير أموال وودائع إيرانية في الخارج كانت تحتجزها العقوبات الأميركية. وصولاً لما أعلن مساء امس عن اول خطوة أميركية مباشرة برفع العقوبات عن اشخاص وكيانات كانوا تحت نظام العقوبات، كما قالت وزارة الخارجية الأميركية.

 الحرب على اليمن كانت خط الاحتياط الأميركي السعودي في مواجهة نتائج التوقيع على الاتفاق في المرة الأولى. وجاءت نتائجها وبالاً. وشكل اليمن مفاجأة الحروب كلها. فانقلبت الحرب من أداة ضغط أميركية سعودية الى أداة ضغط معكوسة. وصار أمن الطاقة وأمن الخليج تحت رحمة أنصار الله. وبات دخول زمن التسويات مشروطاً بإنهاء الحرب بشروط غير مذلة للسعودية تتيح حفظ ما تبقى من ماء الوجه. لكن سوء التقدير السعودي الذي كان مع بداية الحرب لا يزال مستمراً مع الحاجة لإنهائها، وأوهام تحقيق المكاسب يحكم العقل السعودي الذي لم يعرف كيف يربح ولا يعرف اليوم كيف يخسر. فعرض وقف النار دون إنهاء الحصار تسبب بتعقيد الإعلان عن انطلاق خط التسوية في اليمن. وتسبب بتأجيل الإعلان عن التوصل الى الاتفاق على العودة للاتفاق النووي. لكن الزمن داهم. ولذلك يرمي الأميركيون بثقلهم لمخارج يقول بعض الوسطاء إن بينها توقيع اتفاق لفتح مطار صنعاء وميناء الحديدة بين السعودية وعُمان، وتوقيع اتفاق مماثل بين عُمان وأنصار الله، خلال أيام وربما ساعات يعقبها الإعلان عن وقف النار. ليتسنى السير بالإعلان عن الاتفاق على الملف النووي من فيينا.

–  The Lebanese do not like to believe that their country is a secondary front in the great conflict in the region. Despite the real internal dimensions of the political, economic and financial crises ravaging Lebanon, which some hope will open doors to change. It remains that the sectarian system, full of corruption and governed by failed economic and financial policies, survived by external decision, betting on restricting resistance with internal Lebanese equations, or variables imposed in the region. Due to the high cost of direct confrontation with the resistance in Lebanon, there are no credible results of such a confrontation. The bet on the variables of the war in Syria and internal equations failed and the resistance succeeded in imposing stronger internal equations with the presidential settlement and the proportional election law. The abroad, in particular, the American sponsor and gulf financier decided to stop funding this corrupted system. His nakedness was exposed, his crises exploded. But the greatest misfortune is that this outsider, when decided to settlement arrangements and rules of engagement in the region he pursue it as an alternative to the option of confrontation, which proved to be a failure and a dead end. Therefore he will return to finance and float the the Lebanese sectarian corrupted system. But he wants negotiations to take place while the resistance is preoccupied with the regime’s concerns and their repercussions on the Lebanese people.

Syria, which constitutes the region’s main knot, with its balances and its position from all the titles of the regional conflict, formed the weight-bearing egg in drawing balances that dropped bets on confrontation plans. The victories achieved by the War Alliance were forced to retreat, disintegrated and forced to admit failure. But the picture of a settlement in Syria is postponed . Despite the equations imposed by the Syrian people on the day of the presidential elections, that outline the constants of any settlement with regard to the shape of the political system and its references.

Despite the rotation of many parties who participated in the war and return to Damascus, open their embassies and change their speech, Syria is drawing new weights for all the forces of the new world. It includes the U.S. occupation, the Turkish occupation, the future of the Kurdish state and terrorist groups, from which the rules of engagement between the axis of resistance and the occupation entity in the Golan are decided and about the future of the raids on Syria, where the Russian, Iranian and resistance are presence. The American believes that with the sanctions, the detention of the displaced, and the seizure of reconstruction funding, he has the ability to negotiate the legitimacy of the Syrian victory, the price and conditions of this legitimization. Therefore, the settlement over Syria seems to be postponed until after the previous episodes. Put the train of compromises on the rails. The launch whistle sounds.

Iran is at the center of the conflict and forms its basis. Its nuclear file is the title of the conflict that holds what is beyond nuclear, affecting Iran’s future position in the region. All attempts to pressure under the pretext of nuclear power were to subdue and weaken Iran. The rollback of sanctions under the heading of a return to the nuclear deal is an expression of the recognition of failure and an effort to engage in compromises whose contents are being negotiated. All the facts say that the agreement is now complete with its texts and details. The partial implementation calendar before the announcement of a return to the agreement had begun. Whether by freeing Iranian funds and deposits abroad that were held by U.S. sanctions. The first direct U.S. move to lift sanctions on people and entities under the sanctions regime was announced Tuesday night, the State Department said.

 The war on Yemen was the U.S.-Saudi reserve line in the face of the results of the signing of the nuclear deal the first time. Their were bad. Yemen was the surprise of all wars. The war went from a U.S.-Saudi pressure tool to a reverse pressure tool. Energy and Gulf security are at the mercy of Ansar Allah. Entering the time of settlements became conditional on ending the war on non-humiliating terms for Saudi Arabia that would allow saving the rest of the face. But the Saudi miscalculation that was at the beginning of the war is still continuing with the need to end it, and the illusions of achieving gains rule the Saudi mind, which did not know how to win and does not know how to lose today. Offering a cease-fire without ending the siege complicated the announcement of the launch of the settlement line in Yemen. And caused the postponement of the announcement of reaching an agreement to return to the nuclear agreement. But time is running out. Therefore, the Americans are throwing their weight at exits that some mediators say include the signing of an agreement to open Sanaa airport and the port of Hodeida between Saudi Arabia and Oman, and the signing of a similar agreement between Oman and Ansar Allah, within days and perhaps hours, followed by announcing a cease-fire. In order to be able to announce the agreement on the nuclear file from Vienna.

هل تتحوَّل إدلب إلى مخرج نحو نظام إقليميّ جديد؟

تعتبر كلٌّ من تركيا و”إسرائيل” والسعودية والإمارات وقطر أكثر الدول خسارةً، وفقاً للتصور الإقليمي الجديد الَّذي لم تتضح معالمه النهائية بعد.

هل تتحوَّل إدلب إلى مخرج نحو نظام إقليميّ جديد؟      بقلم: أحمد الدرزي

أثارت الحشود العسكرية السوريَّة على حدود المناطق المحتلَّة من إدلب، وحدّة الاشتباكات اليوميّة مع المجموعات المسلَّحة التي تعمل تحت إدارة الاحتلال التركي، الأسئلة حول احتمال حدوث عمل عسكري سوريّ كبير بغية تحريرها.

وقد تحوَّلت إدلب، بما آلت إليه أوضاعها، إلى مشكلة إقليمية ودولية، بفعل تجمّع العدد الأكبر من المسلَّحين الإسلاميين التكفيريين من جميع الجنسيات فيها، عدا عن كونها بمثابة خرّاج متقيّح قابل للانفجار في وجه الداخل السوري وكلٍّ من روسيا والصين وإيران والعراق. وقد يتجاوزها إلى الدول التي احتضنت هؤلاء ورعتهم ودعمتهم.

إنّ إدلب، قبل كلِّ ذلك، أراضٍ سورية محتلَّة بشكل مباشر من قوات تركية متمركزة فيها بأعداد تتجاوز 20 ألف جندي تركي، تحت حماية مجموعات مسلّحة يصل عددها إلى 110 آلاف، يرتبط 35 ألفاً منهم بتنظيم “القاعدة”.

وفقاً للمصالح الأميركيَّة المستجدَّة في رؤيتها إلى منطقة غرب آسيا وضرورة إخراجها من مشروع “الحزام والطريق” الصيني والمشروع الأوراسي، كان لا بدَّ من الوصول إلى اتفاق مع إيران التي أثبتت قدرتها مع شركائها في سوريا والعراق ولبنان وفلسطين واليمن على الصمود في وجه أعتى العواصف التي هبَّت على المنطقة.

وسيحدّد هذا التصور الجديد الرابحين بأدوارهم الجديدة التي انتزعوها قسراً، وسيشمل منطقة واسعة تمتدّ من أفغانستان إلى البحر الأبيض المتوسط، مع الاعتراف بالدور اليمني الجديد في التحكّم في مضيق باب المندب نحو البحر الأحمر، الذي يعتبر الأهم دولياً كممرّ للتجارة العالمية.

تحوّلت هذه الرؤية الأميركية المتجددة، فضلاً عن العمل عليها، إلى كابوس للأطراف التي راهنت على انتصارها في الحرب على سوريا والعراق واليمن وفلسطين ولبنان بشكل أساسي. وتعتبر كلٌّ من تركيا و”إسرائيل” والسعودية والإمارات وقطر أكثر الدول خسارةً، وفقاً للتصور الإقليمي الجديد الَّذي لم تتضح معالمه النهائية بعد، وإن كان يعتمد على التوافق وفقاً لمعادلات القوة الجديدة، لاستمرار الانكفاء الأميركي وصعود قوى آسيوية دولياً وإقليمياً.

وقد أدركت السّعودية والإمارات مبكراً تحوّلات الولايات المتّحدة وتراجعها، مع خسارتهما الكبيرة في اليمن، بعد حرب تجاوزت السنوات الست، فسارتا باتجاه الاعتماد على قادة تل أبيب، في محاولةٍ لتشكيل تحالف قادر على الوقوف في وجه المتغيّرات الإقليميّة، وفي الوقت نفسه العودة إلى دمشق والإقرار بنظامها السياسي بشكل مباشر من قبل أبو ظبي، التي حزمت أمرها مبكراً في العام 2018. وقد بدأت الرياض تتحرّى سبل العودة لمواجهة طهران وأنقرة من جهة، ومحاولة تقليل الخسائر في اليمن من جهة أخرى، بإيجاد توافق مع طهران ما زالت تتلمَّس حدوده.  

جاءت الانتفاضة الفلسطينيّة في القدس وفلسطين الـ1948 وصواريخ المقاومة في غزة، لتهشّم نتنياهو عسكرياً وسياسياً، ما أتاح للإدارة الأميركية التي تقودها أكبر كتلة يهودية في تاريخ الإدارات الأميركية ممارسة الضغوط الهائلة على نتنياهو، والعمل على إبعاده من المشهد السياسي الإسرائيلي، رغم ما قد يترتَّب على ذلك من إمكانية الهروب نحو حرب إقليمية معروفة النتائج بكارثيتها على الكيان، أو الذهاب نحو حرب أهليّة، في استعادة لمرحلة إسحاق رابين وأكثر من ذلك، وليس أمام الكيان سوى الانضباط بحدود الدّور المحدّد له في المرحلة القادمة.

والآن، جاء دور تركيا باستهداف الرئيس التركي رجب طيب إردوغان، الَّذي بدأت عمليّة تحطيمه بكشف المستور في علاقاته بالمافيا والفساد ودعم المجموعات التكفيرية في سوريا، بأمر من الإدارات الأميركية المتعاقبة. ولم يكن أفضل من يقوم بذلك سوى زعيم المافيا التركية، سيديت بيكير، الذي بدأ ببثِّ برنامج عبر “يوتيوب” يتابعه أكثر من 100 مليون إنسان.

لم يتوقَّف الأمر عند ذلك، بل استمرَّ كبرنامج عمل للإدارة الجديدة، وخصوصاً بعد أن سرَّبت صحيفة “التايمز” قرار المحكمة العليا باتهام قطر وأميرها بدعم الإرهاب وتمويل المجموعات الإرهابية في سوريا عبر الإدارة التركية، باستخدام مصرفين حكوميين قطريين ورجال أعمال وأثرياء قطريين.

كلّ هذه الضّغوط التي تنفذها الولايات المتحدة الأميركية على حلفائها لإعادة التموضع مع مقتضيات المصالح الأميركية فقط، تتطلَّب منهم التخلّي عن الهوامش التي أتاحتها إدارة ترامب لهم، والعودة إلى الاصطفاف الكامل مع الاستراتيجية الجديدة التي يتم العمل على إنجازها خلال الأشهر القادمة.

من هنا، تأتي أهميّة الرسائل العسكرية التي توجّهها دمشق وحلفاؤها في موسكو وطهران في إدلب، وخصوصاً قبل اللقاء المرتقب بين بايدن وإردوغان في اجتماع حلف الناتو القادم في 14 يونيو/حزيران في بروكسل.

ولا يوجد خيار أمام أنقرة سوى التعاطي بإيجابية مع علاج خراج إدلب بشكل محافظ، والتخلّي عن كل المجموعات التكفيرية، وهو أمر صعب، بفعل تداعياته على النظام السياسي التركي، وبالتالي لن يبقى هناك سوى العمل الجراحي الاستئصالي، والتخلّص من القيادات الصلبة للمجموعات، مع محاولات إعادة تظهير تنظيم جبهة “النصرة” كفصيل سياسيّ مدنيّ تكفيريّ، مقابل حلّ سياسيّ مخفّف يعيد السلطة المركزية إلى دمشق في كلّ من إدلب وجرابلس وعفرين وشمال شرقي الفرات بأكمله، وعودة تدفّق النفط السوري إلى مصفاتي حمص وبانياس.

تدرك أنقرة طبيعة تهديدات عودة الولايات المتحدة إلى الاتفاق النووي، وإلغاء العقوبات على طهران، وغضّ النظر عن قانون “قيصر”، فذهبت بعيداً في محاولات الضغط في إدلب، ومنع التعامل بالهويات السورية، ونزعها من السوريين، لكنَّ ذلك لن يجدي نفعاً، فقد حان وقت محاسبة من يظنّون أنَّهم يمتلكون القدرة على استثمار المصالح الأميركية خدمة لمشاريعهم الخاصة، والزمن القادم ليس لهؤلاء، بل لمن يفرضون على الولايات المتحدة قبولها بنظام إقليميّ جديد لا تستطيع التحكّم في مفاصله ومساراته، فعهدها الإمبراطوري إلى مزيدٍ من الانكفاء، والدور الذي ترسمه قوى قارة آسيا الصاعدة سيكون محوراً لحركة التاريخ على مدى قرن من الزمان.

وتبقى التحدّيات الداخليّة لدول غرب آسيا الرابحة هي الأكبر، فهي لن تستطيع أن تتصدّى للدور الذي حقّقته، ما لم يترافق مع عمليّة تغيير عميقة في بنى الدولة، وإشراك العناصر الوطنية في إعادة بناء ما تهدَّم عمرانياً واجتماعياً ومعرفياً وثقافياً، فهل ستكون على مستوى التحدي؟

US Drops Sanctions on Former Iranian Officials in ‘Routine’ Step

 June 11, 2021

iran flag

The Biden administration on Thursday lifted sanctions on three former Iranian government officials and two Iranian companies involved in the country’s oil industry, a conciliatory gesture days before a potentially decisive round of nuclear talks in Vienna, the New York Times reported.

The administration cautioned against reading too much into the move. Ned Price, the State Department spokesman, claimed there was “absolutely no connection” between the sanctions and discussions among several world powers and Tehran.

Those talks are intended to bring the United States and Iran back into compliance with the 2015 deal that attempted to limit Iran’s nuclear program in return for an end to many of the international sanctions that have squeezed the country’s economy.

In the same statements announcing that the United States had lifted some sanctions, the State and Treasury Departments also said they were imposing new ones on a dozen Iranian individuals, entities and vessels for providing financial support to the Ansarullah revolutionaries in Yemen.

A sixth round of nuclear talks is set to begin in Vienna this weekend. Robert Einhorn, an arms control expert at the Brookings Institution, said that the timing of the US announcements suggested a connection to the nuclear issue, and that it might be a signal of American flexibility.

The United States has been negotiating with Iran since April, though only indirectly, through intermediaries in Vienna, because of Tehran’s refusal to speak directly with American officials.

Biden administration officials have said for weeks that they are prepared to lift sanctions on Iran as part of a mutual return to compliance with the 2015 deal, and that the main obstacle to an agreement is whether Iran’s leadership is prepared to respond by scaling back its nuclear activities.

The 2015 deal, negotiated by the Obama administration and several other world powers, traded Western sanctions relief in return for Iran’s agreement to accept limits on — and international monitoring of — its nuclear program to ensure that it did not try to build a weapon. Iran stresses repeatedly that its program is for peaceful purposes only.

Former US president Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the nuclear deal in 2018 and hammered Iran with economic sanctions in what he called a campaign of “maximum pressure.” In response, Iran then began expanding its nuclear program and is now enriching uranium to levels and in quantities far beyond those allowed under the agreement.

Sayyed Nasrallah: I Hope that We will Pray in Al-Aqsa, If the State Fails We’ll Buy Iranian Fuel

Sayyed Nasrallah: I Hope that We will Pray in Al-Aqsa, If the State Fails We’ll Buy Iranian Fuel

Zeinab Essa

Beirut-Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on Tuesday a speech in the festival held to celebrate the 30th anniversary of establishing Al-Manar TV Channel.

At the beginning of his speech, Sayyed Nasrallah assured all his lovers on his health condition and thanks everybody who was concerned about his health. “I am, thanks to Al-Mighty God, among you, and I have great hope that I will pray in the Holy Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

“I still dream of, and I have hope that we will perform prayers together in the holy Al-Aqsa Mosque,” he said.

According to His Eminence, Al-Manar was established to be the channel of resistance and later resistance and liberation. “Al-Manar TV is not a channel that seeks profit, excitement, and competition. Rather, this channel has a cause and a message that offers sacrifices and pays the price.”

In parallel, Sayyed Nasrallah thanked everyone who contributed to the establishment of Al-Manar TV, atop of which is Sayyed Isa Tabatabei.

He further thanked everyone who contributed to the success and development of the channel since day one until present. “Al-Manar Channel is that of martyrs, the wounded, the prisoners, the scarifying and the victorious people,” His Eminence stated.

“During the July war, Al-Manar was ready and present, and sacrifices were made, and its image and voice did not disappear,” Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized.

Meanwhile, the Resistance Leader underscored that “What is happening in Palestine and Al-Aqsa, the sacred and blessed land, must be followed by all Arab and Muslim nation.”

“What is happening in Palestine, Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa Mosque is that we are facing a spiteful and foolish enemy, and it might move forward because of its internal crises,” he warned.

In addition, His Eminence underlined that [“Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu today is defeated and suffering a crisis, and he may resort to different and reckless options to get out of his crises.”

“The Palestinians in Gaza, Al-Quds, the West Bank and the 1948 lands are determined to protect Al-Quds and the holy sites, and the nation must shoulder its responsibilities,” he added, noting that “Al-Quds and the Aqsa Mosque is the cause of the entire nation.”

Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say: “We’re working hard to equate the attack on Al-Quds to the regional war.”

“The first glimpse of the new equation rose from the dear Yemen,” His Eminence mentioned, noting that “The first expression of the new equation for protecting Al-Quds came from dear Yemen, by Sayyed Abdul-Malik Al-Houthi.”

According to Hezbollah Secretary General, “The war on Yemen has proven that the people who are being fought in Yemen are getting stronger. Since day one of the Saudi aggression against Yemen, we believed the Yemeni people can remain steadfast and emerge victorious.”

“Today, we’re witnessing the failure of the Saudi-American war on Yemen,” His Eminence announced, noting that “What we are suffering in Lebanon today is a part of what the Yemeni people have been suffering since years to force them to compromise.”

He also viewed that “The Americans want the war in Yemen to stop but they want the siege to continue.”

On another level, Sayyed Nasrallah hailed the fact that “Al-Manar assumed its responsibilities in confronting terrorism and during the liberation of the Lebanese outskirts.”

“Since weeks, some have been speaking about the postponement of the elections and some European countries also expressed such concerns,” he added, noting that We have not thought of the postponement of the elections and our allies have not told us so.”

Moreover, His Eminence said: “We are against early parliamentary elections as it represents a waste of time because it will not introduce anything new, and it will only distract people from the economic crises.”

“We are with continuing the government formation efforts and there should not be despair. Let those forming the government feel the people’s pain,” Sayyed Nasrallah confirmed, highlighting that “The Lebanese parliamentary elections must be held on time no matter what the circumstances are.”

According to His Eminence, “Early election is not a solution but a waste of time; we are with continuing efforts to form the government and we support Speaker Berri in his initiative.”

“The accumulation of crises has brought Lebanon to what we are suffering today, he said, noting that “Accusing Hezbollah of being the cause of the crisis and ignoring the real reasons is an American and “Israeli” statement.”  

On the internal Lebanese crisis, Sayyed Nasrallah underscored that “Our information is that there exists medicine as well as foodstuffs in the warehouses that are monopolized by drug and food dealers.”

“Today’s monopolists in Lebanon are traitors, murderers and immoral people,” he added, pointing out that “The current official performance is weak in the various files and at the various ministries and the government, ministers and directors general must shoulder their responsibilities, especially that the government formation crisis might protract.”

On this level, Sayyed Nasrallah declared that “The scenes of the queues at the Lebanese gas stations are humiliating. If Lebanon accepts at this very moment, fuel ships would come now from Iran.”

According to His Eminence, “Solving the fuel crisis in Lebanon is possible but needs a courageous political decision,” lamenting the fact that “We are in a country that has surrendered to the United States.”

“We- in Hezbollah-will go to Iran and negotiate over bringing fuel ships to Beirut port and let the state prevent the people from getting this fuel,” he said, pointing out that “Hezbollah offers 20,000 volunteers to support the state in confronting monopoly.”

Sayyed Nasrallah asked “If behind delaying the formation of the government is waiting to stop subsidizing basic needs?”

“We need a bold political decision to resolve the gasoline crisis in Lebanon,” he said, noting that “Awaiting the end of subsidization could be one of the reasons behind the delay in the formation of the new government.”

According to the Resistance Leader, “Forming the new government is the natural way to fight the symptoms of the crises and set the country on the track of solutions.”

معادلة القدس تفجّر حرباً إقليميّة تشغل واشنطن

03/062021

 ناصر قنديل

فيما انصرف كيان الاحتلال والجوقات العربية واللبنانية المناوئة للمقاومة، لتعميم الشائعات عن صحة الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله أملاً بطمس المضامين الفعلية للمعادلة التي أطلقها في إطلالته النوعيّة في ذكرى عيد المقاومة والتحرير، وحدَها واشنطن فهمت بعمق معنى الكلام الذي قاله الأمين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله، عن أن معادلة المرحلة المقبلة هي “القدس تساوي حرباً إقليميّة”، فانصرفت تتعامل مع المعادلة وكيفية الحؤول دون وضعها قيد التطبيق، بعدما أثبتت حرب غزة بما حملت من وقائع كشفت هشاشة كيان الاحتلال، وخطورة انهياره إذا ما بلغت الأمور حدّ تطبيق معادلة السيد نصرالله، وأدركت واشنطن أنها معادلة للتنفيذ وليست مجرد شعار، لأنها تابعت عن كثب ما كان يجري خلال حرب غزة من تحضيرات وما رافق تطوّراتها من قرارات، وعملت بموجب هذه المتابعة على تسريع الوصول لوقف النار منعاً لوقوع الأسوأ على كيان الاحتلال.

بعد نجاح التوصل لوقف النار في غزة، وضعت واشنطن أمامها ثلاثة ملفات تتصل بالمعادلة الجديدة، الملف الأول في الكيان وخطر قيام رئيس حكومته بنيامين نتنياهو بارتكاب حماقة تؤدي الى الانزلاق الى هذه الحرب؛ والثاني في اليمن وخطورة أن يكون محور المقاومة قد أعدّ اليمن ليكون مع لبنان شركاء المرحلة الأولى من تطبيق هذه المعادلة، في حال وضعت قيد التطبيق؛ أما الملف الثالث فيتصل بإيران التي تشكل عمق محور المقاومة، وثقله الاستراتيجي، انطلاقاً من أن بين إيران وكيان الاحتلال حساباً مفتوحاً، سيجد فرصة تصفيته في حال طبقت معادلة السيد نصرالله، إضافة لما لدى إيران من اسباب عقائدية واستراتيجية تجعلها تنظر للحظة الحرب الإقليمية تحت عنوان القدس فرصة تاريخية لا تفوّت.

في الملف الأول المتصل بوضع الكيان، سارعت واشنطن الى إيفاد وزير خارجيتها الى المنطقة وخصوصاً لاستطلاع الوضع في الكيان، وتقدير الموقف، وكانت الحصيلة تقول إن بقاء بنيامين نتنياهو على رأس الحكومة يعادل خطر نشوب حرب إقليمية لثلاثة أسباب، الأول أنه يجد هذه الحرب فرصة لتوريط واشنطن في مواجهة مع إيران ومحور المقاومة عندما يبدو أن الكيان يواجه خطراً وجودياً لا تكفي لتلافيه إمدادات السلاح الأميركي، وهو بذلك يترجم احتجاجه على السياسات الأميركية الذاهبة الى العودة للاتفاق النووي مع إيران، الثاني أن نتنياهو يسير وراء المستوطنين والمتطرفين ويعتبرهم القوة الحيوية الوحيدة التي تضمن له تفوقاً انتخابياً، وهو ليس على استعداد لممارسة أي جهد لضبطهم وكبح جماح عدوانيتهم على الفلسطينيين، خصوصاً في القدس ما يجعل خطر الانفجار وشيكاً، خصوصاً أن الملفات الشخصية لنتنياهو المتصلة بالفساد وخطر السجن والمحاكمة تجعله أسير حسابات ضيقة يتقدمها بقاؤه على رأس الحكومة مهما كان الثمن، والسبب الثالث أن نتنياهو المثقل بتاريخه السياسي الرافض لأية تسوية ليس رئيس الحكومة المناسب لترجمة مشروع واشنطن بتمييع الصراع حول فلسطين عبر نظرية التفاوض للتفاوض، فهوامشه محدودة للمناورة لو أراد التعاون، وحجم المطلوب منه كثير فلسطينياً وعربياً ليكون للتفاوض بعض مصداقيّة، مهما كانت سقوف المعنيين العرب والفلسطينيين بخيار التفاوض للتفاوض منخفضة، بينما أي رئيس حكومة بلا تاريخ نتنياهو يكفي أن يرتضي التفاوض بلا شروط مسبقة حتى يكون ممكناً فتح الطريق لسحب فتيل التصعيد ولو لفترة.

في الملف اليمنيّ برز تطوران، الأول كلام السيد عبد الملك الحوثي زعيم حركة أنصار الله، الذي أعلن التزام أنصار الله واليمن بمعادلة السيد نصرالله حول القدس والحرب الإقليميّة، والثاني هو حجم التفوّق الميداني الذي يظهره أنصار الله ومعهم الجيش واللجان في كل المعارك التي تدور على جبهة مأرب وجبهة الحدود السعودية في جيزان، وفي القدرة على مواصلة تهديد العمق السعوديّ بالطائرات المسيّرة والصواريخ، وللمرة الأولى تحرك الأميركيون على مسارات السعي لوقف النار بطريقة مختلفة، فوضعوا مشروعاً يحاول محاكاة مطالب أنصار الله بربط وقف النار بفكّ الحصار، وبالرغم من عدم تلبية المقترحات الأميركيّة لما يطلبه أنصار الله، والتحفظات السعوديّة على الطرح الأميركي، فإن واشنطن تبدو عازمة على فعل ما تستطيع لتفادي استمرار التصعيد على جبهة اليمن، وفتح الباب للتفاوض السياسي، لاعتقادها بأن وقف الحرب يخفف من مخاطر انخراط اليمن في حرب إقليمية إذا توافرت شروط معادلة السيد نصرالله لها.

في الملف الإيراني، حملت مفاوضات فيينا تطوّرات هامة من الجانب الأميركي، ترجمتها تصريحات البيت الأبيض التي يقرأ فيها التمهيد السياسي والإعلامي للإعلان عن التوصل للاتفاق في الجولة المقبلة للتفاوض، والحساب الأميركي يقوم على الاعتقاد بأن العودة الى الاتفاق النووي ورفع العقوبات الأميركية كنتيجة لذلك، ستخلق مناخاً يعقد انخراط إيران في أية حرب إقليميّة، ويفتح الباب لأصوات تدعو للتريّث ما يمنح واشنطن في أية ظروف مشابهة متوقعة الحدوث هامش وقت أوسع للتحرك لوقف التدهور الذي يفتح باب الحرب الإقليمية.

النصف الأول من حزيران سيشهد تطوّرات في الملفات الثلاثة، بحكومة تقصي نتنياهو في الكيان، والمضي قدماً في مساعي تقديم مقترحات لوقف النار في اليمن، وتسريع العودة للاتفاق النوويّ، ومحور المقاومة سيقطف ثمار هذه التحوّلات، ضعفاً وانشقاقاً في الكيان وانتصاراً في اليمن وإيران، لكن المعادلة باقية لا تتزحزح، لا تمزحوا في القدس، فالحرب الإقليميّة وراء الباب.

Sayyed Houthi: Yemen’s Ansarullah Will Be Part of Al-Quds Formula as Announced by Hezbollah Secretary General

June 3, 2021

manar-01242770016182505482

Leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement Sayyed Abdul-Malik Badreddin Al-Houthi stressed on Thursday that the Yemenis are part of Al-Quds formula as announced by Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah and will be present effectively in the battle against the Zionist enemy.

Sayyed Houthi indicated that Hezbollah and the Palestinian resistance were not supported by any Arab or Muslim state, except Iran and Syria, highlighting the importance of the recent victory in Gaza.

The Yemeni leader noted that the pro-Israeli traitors accuse the resistance forces of being Iran’s proxy groups, adding that the takfiri war launched against them serves US and ‘Israel’.

Sayyed Houthi stressed that the peaceful solution in Yemen can be reached when the Saudi-led coalition halts its war and blockade on the Yemenis.

Meanwhile, Sayyed Houthi asserted that the US utilized September 11 attacks to intervene in the political, economic and cultural issues of the Islamic Umma, noting that US-Israeli activities are aimed at obliterating the Islamic identity of the region.

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah consecrated, during his speech on the 21st anniversary of Resistance and Liberation Day, a new formula, “If Israel tampers with Al-Quds, it will face a regional war.”

نفّذ الجيش واللجان الشعبية عملية هجومية واسعة في محور “الخوبة – وادي جارة” بقطاع جيزان من 3 مسارات رئيسية على مواقع الجيش السعودي في “جبل الإم بي سي – وتباب الفخيذة والتبة البيضاء – والقمبورة والعمود وتويلق وشرق قايم صياب” وتم خلال العملية التقدم والسيطرة عليها بالكامل وإلحاق خسائر فادحة بقوات العدو.

مصدر عسكري يمني كشف عن تحرير أكثر من 150 كيلو متراً مربعاً في محور جيزان بعملية عسكرية واسعة.

وبدأت العملية عقب رصد دقيق لتحركات الجيش السعودي وتموضّع قواته وآلياته، إذ تواجدت في هذه المواقع قوات مشتركة من القوات السعودية ومرتزقة سودانيين ووحدات من مرتزقة ما يسمى بـ “لواء المغاوير”.

وأظهرت المشاهد تقدّم الجيش واللجان الشعبية نحو مواقع العدو في مدينة قبالة الخوبة في العمق السعودي، وتمكنهم من اجتياز الموانع والتحصينات المعادية قبل الإطباق والاشتباك مع قوات العدو من مسافات قريبة وإلحاق خسائر فادحة بالعدو أجبرته على الفرار.

وتوجه الحوثي للسعودية محذراً: “نحذرهم من

الوجع الكبير والمعادلة اليوم لم تدخل في كل أبعادها مرحلة الوجع الكبير”.

Efforts Underway to Improve Ties between Damascus, Riyadh: Assad’s Advisor

Efforts Underway to Improve Ties between Damascus, Riyadh: Assad’s Advisor

By Staff, Agencies

Political and media adviser to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Bouthaina Shaaban, said efforts are underway to improve diplomatic relations with Saudi Arabia after more than a decade of estrangement between the two Arab nations.

“Efforts are being made to upgrade ties with Saudi Arabia, and may soon have positive results,” Shaaban told local Arabic-language Sham FM radio station on Wednesday.

She also hailed the recent visit by Syrian Tourism Minister Mohammed Rami Martini to Saudi Arabia, stating it was the first such trip by a Syrian minister to the kingdom in recent years.

Martini arrived in Riyadh on Tuesday evening to attend the 47th meeting of the World Tourism Organization Committee for the Middle East on May 26 and 27, according to the official Syrian news agency SANA.

His visit came upon an official invitation from the Saudi Tourism Ministry and the World Tourism Organization Committee for the Middle East for Martini to participate in the meeting, SANA added.

Earlier this month, Saudi Arabia’s intelligence chief met with his Syrian counterpart in Damascus.

London-based Rai al-Youm news outlet reported that Director General of General Intelligence Directorate Lieutenant General Khalid bin Ali al-Humaidan met with President Assad and Director of Syria’s National Security Bureau Ali Mamlouk on May 4 to discuss restoring diplomatic ties.

The Guardian independently confirmed that Humaidan met with Mamlouk.

Having failed to achieve any of its objectives in the Yemen war and with a change of administration in Washington, Saudi Arabia appears to be recalibrating some aspects of its regional approach, striking a more conciliatory tone with Iran and Syria.

Saudi Arabia’s diplomatic relations with Damascus were severed at the outset of the foreign-sponsored devastating militancy in Syria in 2011.

Riyadh has been central to the large-scale supply of weapons and ammunition to various Takfiri militant groups wreaking havoc in Syria.
