Yemeni Army, Allies to Seize Control over Marib If Pro-Hadi Militants Dismiss Truce

A senior Yemeni official said the country’s army troops and fighters from allied Popular Committees will establish full control over the entire districts of the central province of Marib in case Saudi-led militants refuse calls for a ceasefire in the strategic area.

Marib provincial governor in Yemen’s National Salvation Government, Major General Ali Muhammad Taiman, told Beirut-based al-Mayadeen network that the Yemeni army troops and allies are now in control of 85% of the province, and are only about 6 to 7 kilometers away from the provincial capital of the same name.

He added that the Yemeni armed forces are currently positioned on the outskirts of Marib city, stressing that, “We agreed to the initiative by [the leader of Yemen’s popular Ansarullah resistance movement] Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi, for a ceasefire. However, Saudi militants loyal to Yemen’s fugitive former President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi kept bombing women and children. We want peace and strongly oppose bloodshed.”

He added, “[Sayyed] al-Houthi’s initiative is fair, as it involves the locals of Marib in its administration and appropriation of its resources. Such an initiative had not been developed for the past 40 years. We presented the truce initiative from a position of strength.”

Taiman highlighted that he was “ready to sit with his counterpart in Hadi’s administration, Major Sultan al-Aradah, either in the al-Jubah district or in Sirwah, in order to discuss the initiative and stop skirmishes in Marib.”

“We hope [Saudi] mercenaries in Marib would agree to Houthi’s initiative, and quickly implement it if they want to spare the province from war and destruction,” he added.

The senior Yemeni official further noted: “If the mercenaries have the courage to take the decision, we are ready to sit down with them.” 

Taiman said, “While we follow the initiative and are waiting for the other side’s action[s], no measure has unfortunately been taken yet. Yemeni army forces and fighters from Popular Committees would not hesitate to liberate the rest of Marib in case Saudi mercenaries turn down the truce initiative.”

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

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

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.

MBS Used ‘Israeli’ Spyware Pegasus to Spy on Lebanese, Hezbollah Officials – Report

MBS Used ‘Israeli’ Spyware Pegasus to Spy on Lebanese, Hezbollah Officials - Report

By Staff, Agencies

An ‘Israeli’ software company is revealed to have helped Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman [MBS] take over the smart phones of high-ranking Lebanese authorities, senior figures of Hezbollah resistance movement as well as journalists, and spy on their communications.

According to the report published by the French daily newspaper Le Monde, Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler used the NSO Group’s cell phone-hacking software, Pegasus, to conduct cyber-espionage on Lebanon’s President Michel Aoun, former prime minister Saad Hariri, former foreign minister and leader of the Free Patriotic Movement Gebran Bassil, and Chief of the Directorate of General Security Major General Abbas Ibrahim.

The report added the ‘Israeli’ spyware was abused on behalf of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates between 2018 and 2019 to spy on some Lebanese political officials and journalists.

Le Monde said the Saudi crown prince also called for espionage on Lebanese lawmakers representing Hezbollah Hassan Fadlallah and Ali Fayyad, governor of Lebanon’s central bank Riad Salameh and former finance minister Ali Hassan Khalil.

The report added that the Riyadh and Abu Dhabi regimes had demanded that two renowned Lebanese journalists, director of Beirut-based al-Mayadeen television news network Ghassan bin Jiddo, and correspondent and political analyst for al-Akhbar Arabic language newspaper Ibrahim al-Amin, be kept under close watch.

Similarly, the United Arab Emirates has apparently deployed digital spyware enabling surveillance of top leaders of Yemen’s popular Ansarullah resistance movement and officials from the administration of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

The Arabic-language al-Khabar al-Yemeni news website reported that Ansarullah’s leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi and Chairman of the Yemeni Supreme Revolutionary Committee Mohammed Ali al-Houthi were among senior Yemeni officials targeted by the UAE.

According to the report, Hadi was also on the list of targets.

One of the most prominent targets was Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr, the former Yemeni prime minister in Hadi’s government. He was under surveillance since April 2016 until the end of 2018.

Being a highly invasive tool, Pegasus is said to be able to turn on the victim’s cell phone camera and microphone and access data on it, meaning that it can effectively turn the phone into a pocket spy.

The ‘Israeli’ firm NSO has been in the headlines since 2016 when experts said it was helping spy on an activist in the UAE.

The University of Toronto’s Citizen Lab, through a study, has found a link between the NSO technology and political surveillance in Mexico, the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Victims of the hacking spree included diplomats, political dissidents, journalists and top government officials.

Yemeni People Reject Call For ‘Peace’ With Those Killing Them – Ansarullah Official

Yemeni People Reject Call For ‘Peace’ With Those Killing Them – Ansarullah Official

By Staff, Agencies

Member of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council, Mohammad Ali al-Houthi reacted to the latest remarks by US Special Envoy for Yemen Tim Lenderking about ongoing clashes in the country’s strategic central province of Marib, emphasizing that Yemeni people dismiss the call for peace with parties that are targeting and killing them on a daily basis.

“Yemeni people hate siege, attacks by the Saudi-led coalition and their mercenaries, as well as the call for peace with aggressors who are killing them every day,” al-Houthi wrote in a series of posts published on his Twitter page late on Thursday.

He added, “The United States is negotiating with and supporting al-Qaeda and Daesh [Arabic for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL’ group] worldwide. This is while it expresses concern over the Yemeni nation’s campaign and struggle against these terrorists.”

“The hatred for America will end as soon as its aggression stops, the siege is lifted and the occupation of Yemen halts. This is what the Leader of Ansarullah movement [Sayyed Abdul-Malik al-Houthi] has long been demanding,” Houthi pointed out.

“Why doesn’t the United States stop selling its weapons to those waging aggression against Yemen? The main reason is its insistence to prolong the war and occupy Yemen,” the Ansarullah official noted.

Earlier in the day, Lenderking said there was a need to pressure Yemeni Ansarullah fighters into stopping their attacks on Marib.

The US State Department spokesperson Ned Price also told a press briefing that Washington is “beyond fed up” with retaliatory attacks by Yemeni army forces and their allies.

Houthi’s remarks come as all efforts by the United Nations and collective action at the international level for establishing peace and ending the imposed war have failed.

The Yemenis say the Saudi-led aggressors have to end all their attacks against Yemen, take out all their forces, end an all-out siege that they have been imposing on the Arab country, and compensate the victims before entering any peace process.

Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and regional allies, launched the devastating 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 the popular Ansarullah resistance movement.

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

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

Yemen’s Houthis Vow to Help ‘Defend Jerusalem’

The Yemeni Shia militia is known for its extreme hostility to the Jewish State, with its oft-touted four-part slogan including the lines “Death to Israel” and “A Curse on the Jews.”

Yemen’s Houthi militia will take part in the defence of Jerusalem in event of a broader conflict with Israel, a senior official from the political and militant group has indicated.

“Ansar Allah will be part of the equation in the defence of the Holy City of Jerusalem,” Abdul-Wahhab al-Mahbashi, a member of the Houthis’ political bureau, said, speaking to Hezbollah-affiliated Lebanese TV channel al-Mayadeen on Thursday night.

The official argued that the Israeli “enemy” may not stop its attacks unless resistance forces are able to target the Israeli hinterland, and suggested that Tel Aviv listens to the warnings of the leaders of the Axis of Resistance (the loose Iran-led Middle Eastern coalition opposed to Israel and the United States), because they do what they say, “unlike” the Arab League.

Al-Mahbashi went on to allege that Israel and the United Arab Emirates were working together in the construction of a mysterious military airbase on Mayun – a volcanic island off Yemen in the strategic Bab el-Mandeb Strait. “Israel is behind the Emirati banner on Mayun Island in the Red Sea,” he said.

Mayun is the second Yemeni island where the Houthis have claimed that Israel and the UAE are working together against Sanaa. Last year, media reported on the creation of a “spy base” on Socotra – a large island about 350 km southeast of the Yemeni mainland between the Guardafui Channel and Arabian Sea. Formally, the island is controlled by the “Southern Transitional Council,” an Abu Dhabi-sponsored entity formally seeking to break off from Yemen and create a separate state in the country’s south, but which is now cooperating with the Saudi-backed government of Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Even though the territory they control is situated over 1,600 km from Israel, the Houthis have repeatedly threatened to attack the Jewish State in the event of attacks against its territories, or if Israel attacks its allies in other countries. Among the group’s potential “bank of targets” are Israeli ships sailing through the Red Sea, and areas inside Israel proper.

Last month, amid the escalation of the conflict between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza, Houthi Supreme Political Council member Muhammad Ali al-Houthi vowed that “the Arab and Yemeni peoples will go to support the Palestinian cause.”

In separate remarks earlier this month, Houthi leader Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said that Yemen was “an integral part of the equation announced by [Hezbollah leader] Hassan Nasrallah, which states that the threat to Jerusalem means a regional war, within the framework of the Axis of Resistance.”

Hostile Relations

The Houthis have repeatedly accused Israel of involvement in, or even the instigation of, the Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen which began in March of 2015, several months after they seized power in a popular uprising in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a.

On Saturday, the group released an hour-long historical documentary on the capture of a Mossad spy, with the expose exposing a range of alleged Israeli activities in Yemen over the past 50 years.

Ansarullah To Be ’Part of Equation’ In Defense of Al-Quds – Official

Ansarullah To Be ’Part of Equation’ In Defense of Al-Quds - Official

By Staff, Agencies

A senior member of Yemen’s Ansarullah resistance movement said his group will be an integral part of the equation to defend sacred sites in the occupied city of al-Quds against any ‘Israeli’ act of aggression.

Abdul-Wahhab al-Mahbashi told Beirut-based al-Mayadeen television on Thursday evening that his movement “will be part of the equation in defense of al-Quds” in the event of a new confrontation with ‘Israel.’

On June 3, Ansarullah leader Sayyed Abdul Malik Badreddine al-Houthi said Yemenis are part of the al-Quds equation and will be effectively present in the battle against the ‘Israeli’ regime.

Sayyed al-Houthi then praised Iran as the main supporter of resistance front in the region.

On June 6, the representative of Hamas resistance movement in Yemen expressed gratitude to the Yemeni people and government for supporting the Palestinian cause during the recent ‘Israeli’ military offensive on the Gaza Strip, which claimed the lives of at least 260 people in the besieged enclave.

“We feel brotherhood and comfort in Yemen, and this indicates the Yemeni people’s love for Palestine and al-Aqsa Mosque,” Moaz Abu Shamala said during a meeting with Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, a senior member of Yemen’s Supreme Political Council, in Sanaa.

Abu Shamala said all signs confirm that the resistance is the right way to liberate occupied Palestine, Yemen Press Agency reported.

عن الانقسام الفلسطيني في زمن «سيف القدس»

صنَّفت غالبية قادة المقاومة الفلسطينية معركة سيف القدس على أنها تطور إستراتيجي في مسار الصراع مع العدو الصهيوني، وقد أكّد على هذه القراءة قادة أركان محور المقاومة عندما وصفوها بالتحوّل النوعي، ولعل وصف السيد حسن نصرالله لنتائج المعركة كان الأبلغ، حينما قال إن نتائج معركة سيف القدس تفوق ما تحقّق في حرب تموز 2006، مع العلم أن حرب تموز تُعد نصراً إستراتيجياً موصوفاً، وأحد أهم التحولات في تاريخ الصراع مع الكيان الصهيوني.

إذا ما سلّمنا بهذا التوصيف ـــ وهو بلا شك توصيف دقيق لواقع الأمر ـــ يصير لزاماً على فصائل المقاومة الفلسطينية مواكبة الحدث عبر وضع إستراتيجية جديدة للمرحلة القادمة، تبني على المكتسبات التي تحقّقت وعلى ميزان القوى بين فصائل المقاومة الفلسطينية وبين الكيان الصهيوني الذي رسّخته المواجهة الأخيرة، لأنه دون ذلك يمكن للعدو تفريغ الإنجاز من محتواه، وتقزيمه ليصبح نصراً تكتيكياً عوضاً عن كونه تحولاً نوعياً في مسار المواجهة المستمرة، ولعل إحدى المقاربات في هذا الخصوص كانت الدعوة التي أطلقها السيد حسن نصرالله إلى ترسيخ معادلةٍ جديدةٍ تجعل المساس بالمسجد الأقصى والقدس في مقابل حربٍ إقليميةٍ شاملةٍ، حرب متعددة الجبهات تضع استمرارية بقاء الكيان الصهيوني على المحكّ، هذه المعادلة التي أكد زعيم حركة أنصار الله عبد الملك الحوثي على أن اليمن سيكون جزءاً منها، مدشِّنين بهذا صفحةً جديدةً في مسار الصراع العربي-الإسلامي الصهيوني.

يطرح هذا المنظور لنتائج معركة سيف القدس عدة محاورَ جديرةٍ بالنقاش، لكن سيكتفي هذا المقال بالتعريج فقط على قضية الانقسام الفلسطيني وبناءِ الوحدة الوطنية الفلسطينية.

أبرزت معركة سيف القدس حالةً وحدويةً بين كلّ الفصائل الفلسطينية قاطبةً، تَمثلت في «غرفة العمليات المشتركة» في قطاع غزة، فبدايةً كان قرار الذهاب إلى الصدام العسكري مع المحتل رداً على تجاوزاته في القدس والمسجد الأقصى قراراً مشتركاً بين كلّ فصائل «غرفة العمليات المشتركة»، وكان التنسيق العسكري أثناء المعركة في أعلى درجاته بين كل أجنحة الفصائل العسكرية، سواءً أكان في توقيت الضربات الصاروخية أم في طبيعتها، وظهر التناغم الواضح بين فصائل «غرفة العمليات المشتركة» في التنسيق على المستوى السياسي أيضاً، وهكذا تحقّقت الوحدة بين الفصائل على أساس هدفٍ وطنيٍّ واضحٍ وبناءً على خطةٍ مشتركةٍ، ما عكس وحدةً وطنيةً في سائر قطاعات الشعب الفلسطيني في كامل أراضي الوطن السليب من النهر إلى البحر، وامتد ليشمل كذلك فلسطينيي الشتات حيثما وجدوا.

ومن المهم الإشارة إلى كون «غرفة العمليات المشتركة» قد جمعت بين كلٍّ من حركتي حماس والجهاد الإسلامي وبين فصائل (م. ت. ف.) بمن فيهم كتائب شهداء الأقصى التابعة لحركة «فتح» في إطار موحد، وكذلك الإشارة إلى كون هذه الغرفة لم تأتِ وليدة الصدفة، بل كانت تتويجاً لمسارٍ طويلٍ امتد لسنواتٍ أقلها منذ الحرب على قطاع غزة في عام 2014.
ويرى العديد في صيغة الوحدة هذه «ديناميكية» صالحةً يمكن البناء عليها لإنهاء الانقسام الحاصل في الساحة الفلسطينية منذ قرابة خمس عشرة سنةً، فهي بُنيت على أساس مشروعٍ موحدٍ ومن أجل أهدافٍ واضحةٍ، على عكس المسارات التي كانت مقترحةً سابقاً والتي كانت تتجاهل حقيقة كون الانقسام الفلسطيني منشؤه الاختلاف في الرؤى تجاه المشروع الوطني، والتي كانت تقفز عن هذه القضية الجوهرية لتغوص في قضايا شكليةٍ من أجل تكريس تحاصصٍ في سلطةٍ منتهية الصلاحية أصلاً، وذلك عبر تنظيم انتخاباتٍ أقل ما يقال فيها بأنها تندرج تحت سقف أوسلو، ناهيكم بعبثية فكرة تنظيم انتخابات مجلسٍ تشريعيٍّ في ظل احتلالٍ يتحكّم بكل تفاصيل الحياة في الضفة والقدس، فحقيقة الأمر أن الفلسطيني ما زال يعيش تحت سطوة احتلالٍ فعليٍّ، وكل حديثٍ عن دولةٍ فلسطينيةٍ ما هو إلى «فانتازيا» ومحض وهمٍ.

وأما الحديث المستجد عن إنهاء الانقسام من خلال الذهاب إلى حكومة وحدةٍ وطنيةٍ، يقبلها المجتمع الدولي وتلتزم بشروط «الرباعية الدولية»، فهذه محاولاتٌ بائسةٌ من قبل سلطة محمود عباس والولايات المتحدة الأميركية لتفريغ نتائج معركة سيف القدس من مضمونها، وذلك عبر جرّ الفلسطينيين إلى المربع الذي كانوا فيه قبل 21 أيار مايو 2021، وإدخاله مجدداً في دوامة أوسلو والمفاوضات العبثية التي باتت مجرد غطاءٍ للاحتلال كي يستمر في مشاريع الاستيطان وضم ما تبقّى من أراضي الضفة الغربية.

لقد تمكنت الوحدة التي تشكّلت في الميدان في ما بين الفصائل من تجاوز بعض أخطاء (م. ت. ف.) السابقة، التي كان أفظعها التنازل عن قرابة 80 في المئة من فلسطين للمحتل، لذلك ينبغي على الفصائل الفلسطينية البناء على قواعد وحدة غرفة العمليات المشتركة في أي مسعى مستقبلي لإصلاح (م.ت.ف)، فالهدف المنشود فلسطينياً يتمثل في إصلاح (م. ت. ف.)، لا إفساد حركتي حماس والجهاد الإسلامي وإلزامهما بسقوف (م. ت. ف.) وتنازلاتها التي لم تؤدِّ إلا إلى ترسيخ نكبة عام 1948، وتهديد حقوق اللاجئين في العودة، وجعل مستقبل بقاء الفلسطينيين داخل الخط الأخضر في مهب الريح بعد إقرار الكيان الصهيوني لقوانين يهودية دولته المزعومة.

لقد أثبتت نتائج معركة سيف القدس مجدداً تحول موازين القوى لغير مصلحة الكيان الصهيوني، وكانت حجةً أخرى على من لا يزال يصر على رؤية اليوم بعيون الأمس، ويصرّ على تجاهل التحولات في واقع المقاومة الفلسطينية، وفي واقع حركات المقاومة في عموم الإقليم، بالإضافة إلى حالة السيولة التي يعيشها الوضع العالمي وتراجع السطوة الأميركية على المسرح الدولي، ذلك الذي لا يزال ينظر إلى الكيان الصهيوني على أنه تلك القوة الصاعدة التي تستطيع هزيمة العرب في ستة أيام كما كان حاله في حقبة خلت، لا كما هو في عام 2021؛ كيانٌ هشّ، وفي حالة تراجعٍ، باتت حتى بعض الأصوات الوازنة في الولايات المتحدة الأميركية ترى فيه «عبئاً استراتيجياً» لا قيمةً مضافةً كما كان حاله سابقاً.

يمكن الخلوص بعد هذا العرض، إذاً، إلى أن «غرفة العمليات المشتركة» قد أعطت مثالاً حياً على كيفية الوصول إلى وحدةٍ وطنيةٍ مبنيةٍ على هدفٍ وطنيٍّ واضحٍ، يأخذ في الاعتبار ميزان القوى الحاكم حالياً لا ميزان القوى الذي كان سارياً في الماضي، وهذان المعطيان ـــ «غرفة العمليات المشتركة» وميزان القوى الراهن ـــ صالحان ليكونا نواةً للوصول إلى وحدةٍ وطنيةٍ حقيقيةٍ، ومبنيةٍ على مشروعٍ وطنيٍّ فلسطينيٍّ واضحٍ، وعلى استراتيجيةٍ فلسطينيةٍ جديدةٍ تحاكي تغيرات الواقع يكون عمادها التحرير.

مسيرة الأعلام والقدس: معادلة إن عدتم عدنا

8/6/2021

منذ سيطرة الاحتلال على شطري القدس عام 67 والتنظيمات المتطرفة والكتل الاستيطانية تتشارك في تنظيم مسيرة تضمّ عشرات الآلاف تُعرَف بمسيرة توحيد القدس ويرمز اليها بمسيرة الأعلام، لحشد الإعلام الذي تتميّز به، ومنذ أكثر من نصف قرن لم يحدث أن اضطر منظمو المسيرة لجعلها موضع أخذ ورد واعتبار القيام بها موضوعاً للنقاش. وكان الهدف من المسيرات المنتظمة سنوياً التحضير للمزيد من خطوات الاستيطان في القدس ودعم سياسات تهجير السكان الأصليين والتحريض لقرب ساعة هدم المسجد الأقصى تحت شعار بناء الهيكل المزعوم.

للمرة الأولى تتأرجح المسيرة على حبال الإلغاء، بعدما فرضت حرب سيف القدس تأجيلها. والسبب واضح وهو المعادلة التي وضعتها المقاومة مع وقف النار، إن عدتم عدنا، وكل تصعيد في القدس يشعل حرباً، وما تلاه من معادلة رسمها السيد حسن نصرالله وأكدها السيد عبد الملك الحوثي، بأن تهديد القدس يعني حرباً إقليميّة، وليس خافياً أن الغاء المسيرة كان موضع نقاش في زيارة وزير دفاع الكيان بني غانتس لواشنطن، التي تسعى لتفادي التصعيد ومن خلفه خطر الحرب الإقليمية، بينما بدا واضحاً بالمقابل رهان رئيس حكومة الاحتلال المهدَّد بالترحيل بنيامين نتنياهو على المسيرة لتعبئة المناخات ضد الحكومة الجديدة من جهة، وأخذ المواجهة في القدس الى أبعد مدى تصعيدي ممكن من جهة أخرى.

القرار الذي اتخذته شرطة الاحتلال بإلغاء المسيرة يعبر عن موازين القوى الجديدة بعد سيف القدس، سواء موازين القوى بين الكيان ومحور المقاومة من جهة، أو موازين القوى الحاكمة لعلاقة الكيان بالحماية الأميركية، التي ظهرت حاجة حيوية بعد الفشل العسكري والأمني اللذين أظهرتهما الحرب، وللحماية كلفة هي الوصاية.

المعادلة الجديدة مع المقاومة، فلسطين حرة والكيان يفقد الاستقلال، وفلسطين تتحدّى والكيان يتراجع.

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.”

بين سورية واليمن قراءة أوروبيّة

لا ينتبه بعض المحللين للمعاني العميقة التي أفرزتها كلٌّ من الحربين الكبيرتين اللتين هزتا المنطقة، الحرب على سورية والحرب على اليمن، والنتائج المتعاكسة لكل منهما، خصوصاً أن بعض المسؤولين الأوروبيين السابقين الذين شاركوا في مرافقة سنوات من الحربين، يكشفون خلال مداخلاتهم في ورشات عمل تعقدها مراكز لدراسات الأمن والاستراتيجية، عن أن حرب اليمن كانت محاولة لاستنساخ عكسي للحرب على سورية بالاستثمار على مصادر القوة التي اعتقد السعوديون أنها عوامل تأثير حاسمة في مسار الحرب على سورية، التي كانت في مرحلة التوازن السلبي عندما انطلقت الحرب على اليمن، في ظل قراءة سعودية أميركية اوروبية تقول إن الجماعات المناوئة للدولة السورية تستمدّ قوتها من وجود حدود سورية مفتوحة على دول داعمة تؤمن لها الظهير والسند والتمويل والتسليح وجلب الآلاف من المسلحين، وبالمقابل فإن الدولة السورية تستمدّ قوتها من كونها تمثل الشرعية الدستورية المعترف بها دولياً، والتي تقوم بإدارة المؤسسات الأمنية والمالية والخدميّة، فجاءت الحرب على اليمن تستثمر على حصار كامل يقطع حتى الهواء عن أنصار الله براً وبحراً وجواً، وبالتوازي الاستثمار على عنوان الشرعيّة الدستورية اليمنية كغطاء لخوض الحرب ومحاولة تفعيل مؤسسات هذه الشرعية عسكرياً وأمنياً ومالياً وخدميّاً، لامتلاك موقع متفوّق في القدرة على حسم الحرب، التي توقعت الدراسات أنها ستحسم خلال أسابيع أو شهور، لهذين الاعتبارين.

تقول القراءة الأوروبيّة الأشدّ تعمقاً في قراءة سرديّة عن الحربين أن عام 2015 الذي كان مفصلياً فيهما، كعام لتوازن سلبيّ في سورية ولبدء الحرب على اليمن، شكل نقطة انطلاق لمسارين متعاكسين في الحربين، ففي سورية بدأت الانتصارات تظهر لصالح الدولة السورية، ثم تتدحرج على مساحة الجغرافيا السورية، بينما بدأت التعقيدات تكبر بوجه ما يفترض أنها الدولة اليمنيّة المدعومة سعودياً ومن خلفها حلف دولي إقليميّ كبير، وجد فيها فرصة لحرب بالوكالة على إيران في مرحلة وصفت بمرحلة الضغوط القصوى على إيران، وفي ظل إدارة أميركية برئاسة الرئيس السابق دونالد ترامب وفرت لهذه الحرب كل أسباب الفوز، ويقارن المسؤولون الأوروبيون السابقون الذين رافقوا من مواقع مسؤولياتهم مراحل هامة من الحربين، أن حجم الدعم الذي حصلت عليه الدولة السورية من روسيا وإيران وحزب الله، أقل بكثير من حجم المشاركة السعودية والغربية في الحرب التي اتخذت من عنوان دعم الدولة اليمنيّة شعاراً لها، سواء بحجم قوة النار أو حجم الأموال أو عديد المقاتلين، بينما حجم الدعم الذي حازته الجماعات المناوئة للدولة السورية عبر الحدود مالاً وسلاحاً وعديداً، بما في ذلك التحدي الذي مثله ظهور تنظيم داعش، يمثل أضعافاً مضاعفة لما وصل لأنصار الله في ظل حصار تمكّن من إغلاق محكم للمنافذ البرية والبحرية والجوية، ولا يمكن بالتالي قراءة النتيجتين المتعاكستين للحربين إلا بقراءة الفوارق بين “الدولتين” و”المعارضتين”.

يقول المسؤولون الأوروبيون السابقون في ورش عمل شاركوا فيها حديثاً، إن على الضفتين الافتراضيتين في التسمية لمفردة الدولة والمعارضة هنا وهناك تكمن كلمة السر، فعلى ضفة الدولة نرى في سورية رئيساً لم يغادر بلده ومكتبه في قلب الساعات الأشدّ خطراً في الحرب فيما كانت القذائف تتساقط قرب القصر الجمهوري، وجيشاً متماسكاً يقاتل بروح استشهاديّة، وشرائح واسعة من الشعب السوري تعتبر الحرب حربها بكل يقين وإيمان، وتتحمّل الحصار والضغوط والتضحيات، بينما على الضفة اليمنيّة رئيساً ووزراء وقادة وصولاً الى مستوى معاون الوزير وما دون من مستشارين ومعاونين يتوزّعون بين الرياض والقاهرة وعمان، يعيشون في فنادق خمسة نجوم، ويشمل ذلك كبار المسؤولين العسكريين، بينما يقع عبء القتال على الجيش السعوديّ والجيش الإماراتيّ، والجيوش التي ساندتهما كالجيش السودانيّ، أما على ضفة المعارضة فنرى قائداً وشعباً ومقاتلين يشكلون في اليمن وحدة متكاملة لم تغادر معاقلها رغم ضراوة النيران وشدة الحصار، تملك اليقين بنصرها، وتقدّم التضحيات بلا حساب من قادتها، وبالمقابل نرى في سورية قادة يقيمون في فنادق خمسة نجوم في باريس واسطمبول والقاهرة والرياض ودبي، يتنعّمون بالمال المفترض أنه مخصص لدعم معاركهم، وقد تحوّل مَن يفترض انهم ثوار الى مرتزقة ينتقلون من بلد الى بلد لحساب دول أخرى، فيما يستندون في معاركهم التي يسوّقونها في الإعلام على جماعات مصنفة إرهابية أمسكت الأرض التي يزعمون أنها مناطق سيطرتهم، قتلت وذبحت الشعب الذي زعموا أنهم حماته.

يخلص المسؤولون الأوروبيون السابقون في مقاربتهم الى القول إن المقارنة تكفي للاستنتاج أن الأرض لمن يحميها ويضحّي لأجلها، وأن الصادقين في إيمانهم بما يدافعون عنه تظهرهم الحروب، حيث خطر الموت داهم، ولا مكان أمامه للاستعراض والغش، فكما النار تكشف المعادن، تكشف الحروب معادن القادة وصدق قضاياهم، ولذلك يبدو بديهياً أن يكون النصر في اليمن للسيد عبد الملك الحوثي، وأن يكون النصر في سورية للرئيس بشار الأسد، لأن القضية باتت واضحة ليست قضية دولة ومعارضة، بل قضية الصدق والتضحية.


Between Syria and Yemen, a European reading

Some analysts do not pay attention to the deep meanings produced by each of the two great wars that shook the region, the war on Syria and the war on Yemen, and the opposite results of each of them, armed, especially since some former European officials who followed the years of the two wars, revealed in the workshops of centers for security and strategic studies, that the Yemen war was an attempt to reverse the war on Syria by investing in the sources of power that the Saudis believed were decisive influencing factors in the course of the war on Syria, which was in the phase of negative power balance when the war on Yemen began. The Saudi, American, European reading that the groups opposed to the Syrian state derive their strength from the presence of Syrian borders open to supportive countries that secure the back, support, financing, arming, and bringing in thousands of militants, on the other hand, the Syrian state represents the internationally recognized constitutional legitimacy that manages the security, financial and service institutions. As for the war on Yemen, it has wagered on a complete land, sea and air blockade, and investing in the title of Yemeni constitutional legitimacy as a cover for waging war and activating military, security, financial, institutions to have a superior position and ability to resolve the war, within weeks or months.

While the complications began to increase in the face of what is supposed to be the Yemeni state supported by Saudi Arabia and behind it a large international regional alliance, there was an opportunity for a proxy war on Iran in a stage described as the stage of maximum pressure on Iran, and under an American administration headed by former President Donald Trump, it provided for this war all Reasons for winning. The most in-depth European reading on the two wars says that 2015, the year of negative balance in Syria and the start of the war on Yemen, constituted a starting point for two opposing tracks in the two wars. The size of the support that Syria received from Russia, Iran and Hezbollah is much less than the size of Saudi and Western participation in the war of support for the Yemeni puppet state, whether by the size of the firepower, the amount of money, or the number of fighters. The amount of support that the anti-Syrian state groups have acquired across the borders, with money and weapons, including the challenge posed by the emergence of ISIS, represents a multiples of what Ansarallah acquired under a tight siege that closed the land, sea and air ports, and therefore the opposite results of the two wars can only be read by reading the differences between the “two states” and the “opposition.”

In recent workshops, former European officials say, the keyword lies on both sides of the default doctrine of the state and the opposition here and there. On the bank of the state we see in Syria a president who did not leave his country and his office in the heart of the most dangerous hours of war while the missiles were falling near the Presidential Palace, and cohesive army fighting in a spirit of martyrdom, and large segments of the Syrian people consider the war its war with certainty and faith, and bear the siege, pressure and sacrifices, while on the Yemeni bank, there is a president, ministers, and leaders down to the minister’s assistant level and below of advisers and assistants distributed between Riyadh, Cairo and Amman, living in five-star hotels, including senior military officials, while the burden of fighting falls on the Saudi and the Emirati army, and the armies that have supported them, such as the Sudanese army. On the Yemeni bank of the opposition we see a leader, people and fighters form in Yemen an integrated unit that did not leave its strongholds despite the ferocity of the fire and the severity of the siege, has the certainty of its victory, and it makes sacrifices without expense from its fighters and leaders, and in return we see in Syria opposition leaders staying in the hotels of five stars in Paris, Istanbul, Cairo and Dubai, enjoying the money supposedly intended to support their battles, has turned the supposed rebels into mercenaries moving from country to country, on behalf of other countries, while basing their battles in the media on terrorist groups that have captured the land they claim to be their areas of control, killing and slaughtering the people they claimed to be their protectors.

Former European officials conclude in their approach that the comparison is enough to conclude that the land is for those who protect it and sacrifice for it, and that those who believe in what they defend are shown by wars, where the danger of death is imminent, as fire reveals minerals, wars reveal the minerals of leaders and the sincerity of their causes, and therefore it seems self-evident that victory in Yemen is for Mr. Abdul Malik al-Houthi, and that victory in Syria for President Bashar al-Assad, because the issue has become clear is not a state and opposition issue, but the issue of honesty and sacrifice.

As Tide Turns, Houthis Reject US, Saudi “Peace” Deals for the Recycled Trash They Are

The Houthis — empowered by six years of perseverance amid one of the most violent wars against some of the world’s most powerful military forces, not to mention the ability to reject the proposals set forth by those same powers — have little incentive to accept Riyadh or Washington’s “peace” offers.

SANA’A, YEMEN — March 26 marks the sixth anniversary of the U.S.-backed Saudi bombing campaign in the war-torn country of Yemen and massive demonstrations took place across the country on Friday in commemoration.

Hundreds of thousands of people took the streets in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a near the besieged Sana’a International Airport, and in Hodeida, home of the country’s largest and most important seaport. In fact, thousands of Yemenis gathered in more than twenty city squares across the northern provinces, carrying Yemeni flags and holding banners emblazoned with messages of steadfastness and promises to liberate the entire country from Saudi control. Images of the demonstrations show a sea of Yemeni flags, posters bearing pictures of Houthi leader Abdulmalik al-Houthi, and the slogan “Six years of aggression — We are ready for the seventh year — We will win.”

“We are here to send a message to both the United States and Saudi Arabia that we are ready to make more sacrifices against the Saudi-led Coalition,” Nayef Haydan, a leader of the Yemeni Socialist Party and member of the Yemeni Shura Council, said. “Any peace initiative must contain a permanent end to the war, lift the blockade completely, include a detailed reconstruction program, and compensate Yemenis,” he added.

Having bombed for six years, Saudis now talk peace

For six years, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, two of the richest countries on the planet, have relentlessly bombed the poorest nation in the Middle East, with crucial assistance from three consecutive U.S. administrations. For 2,160 days — six years straight — the Royal Saudi Air Force and the UAE Air Force have, with American assistance, launched nearly 600,000 airstrikes in Yemen. The bombing has targeted civilian homes, schools, hospitals, roads, funerals, food facilities, factories, mosques, water, pumps and sewage, markets, refugee camps, historical cities, fishing boats, fuel stations, a school bus full of children, and Bedouin camps, making any potential reconstruction very long and costly.

The bombing continues even as talks of new peace initiatives begin to surface. Just last Sunday, March 21, consecutive Saudi airstrikes destroyed a poultry farm in Amran province. The attack was especially egregious as Yemen is suffering from one of the most severe famines in recent history. In fact, the country faces a humanitarian, economic, and political crisis of a magnitude not seen in decades. According to the United Nations, almost 16 million Yemenis live under famine, with 2.5 million children suffering from malnutrition. And thousands of Yemeni state workers now face hunger as their salaries have gone unpaid for years after the Saudi Coalition seized control of the country’s central bank.

Relentless destruction

As the war enters its seventh year, the country’s war-weary masses face grim new milestones. The fastest growing outbreak of cholera ever recorded and outbreaks of swine flu, rabies, diphtheria and measles are among the man-made biological threats facing Yemen. Meanwhile, hundreds of Yemenis are dying of Covid-19 every day amid a collapsed and destroyed health system. Many of these diseases and crises are not natural but have been created, artificially and intentionally, by Saudi Arabia. The U.S.-backed Saudi Coalition has completely or partially destroyed at least 523 healthcare facilities and bombed at least 100 ambulances, according to a report from the Sana’a-based Ministry of Health issued last Tuesday.

Years after Saudi Arabia imposed a blockade on Yemeni ports, halting life-saving supplies, Yemenis are still suffering from a lack of food, fuel and medicine. Hodeida Port, which is the primary entry point for most of Yemen’s food imports, is still under a strict Saudi blockade; even humanitarian aid is prevented from reaching the port. Sana’a International Airport, which has been bombed heavily by the Saudi Air Force in the past two weeks, has been blocked almost since the war began, leaving thousands of medical patients to die prematurely because they were unable to travel abroad for treatment.

Yemenis for their part, have resorted to targeting the Saudi Coalition in its own backyard. Hoping that taking the battle to the Kingdom will exact enough of a toll on the Saudi monarchy to cause it to rethink its quagmire in Yemen, Houthi missiles and drones have had increasing success in striking Saudi oil infrastructure, airports and military bases, leaving Saudi soil exposed to daily bombardment for the first time since the Al Saud family established their state.

In a recent statement, the spokesman for the Ansar Allah-backed Yemen Army claimed that its Air Force had carried out more than 12,623 drone strikes and reconnaissance operations during the past six years and that, in the past two months alone, 54 high-precision ballistic missiles have been fired at vital Saudi targets, some of them deep inside Saudi Arabia.

Last Wednesday, Saudi Arabia’s Abha Airport was attacked by a number of drones, and on Friday, a facility belonging to Saudi state-owned oil giant Aramco in the Saudi capital of Riyadh was hit with six drones, causing damage to the facility, according to Yemen military sources.

Saudi futility

Despite its enormous onslaught, lethal Western weapons, and hundreds of billions of dollars wasted on this war, Saudi Arabia has been unable to crush the will of the Yemeni people, who continue to fight for independence and sovereignty. At the end of March 2015, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman promised confidently that it would all be over within a few weeks and that Ansar Allah would quickly surrender. Now, after six years of war, Bin Salman has not only been unable to defeat The Houthis. Instead, it is The Houthis remain steadfast in their resistance and have grown even more powerful, leading to much consternation in Saudi Arabia and a half-hearted attempt by Bin Salman to ask The Houthis to accept his country’s version of peace and free the Kingdom from the quagmire it has created for itself in Yemen.

As Yemenis make their final push to recapture the strategic city of Marib, amid failed U.S. efforts to protect their Saudi ally from Houthi ballistic missiles and drones, both Washington and Riyadh have presented peace initiatives in an effort to stem the tide of Saudi Coalition military defeats. Those initiatives, however, fail to address or alleviate the humanitarian plight of Yemenis, end the war, or even lift the blockade.

Sour wine in new bottles

On March 12, U.S. Special Envoy for Yemen Tim Lenderking announced an initiative to end the war during a webinar with the Atlantic Council. The plan is essentially a recycled version of a previous proposal presented by Mohammed Bin Salman and the Trump administration one year ago in Oman, dubbed “The Joint Declaration.” It contains a matrix of Saudi principles and conditions aimed at the surrender of the Yemen Army, the Houthis, and their allies, in exchange for an end to the war. Lenderking’s initiative gives no guarantee that the Coalition will take any measures to lift its blockade and end the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

On March 22, Saudi Arabia announced its own “ceasefire initiative” to end the war it announced from Washington D.C. six years ago. Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan revealed the initiative, which would include a nationwide ceasefire under the supervision of the UN and a partial re-opening of the Sana’a International Airport to certain destinations. It also included a revenue-sharing plan that would guarantee the Saudi government access to a portion of the wealth generated by Yemen’s oil and gas deposits in Marib.

Come back when you’re serious

Both initiatives were rejected by Sana’a. “We reject the American and Saudi peace initiatives because they do not meet the demands of the Yemeni people,” Khaled Al-Sharif, chairman of the Supreme Elections Committee, said of the proposals during a meeting held in Sana’a on Monday. According to many Yemenis, including decision-makers in Sana’a, the U.S. and Saudi plans are not intended to achieve peace, but to advance their political goals in the face of an imminent military failure following six costly years of war. The measures, according to officials in Sana’a, are also about saving face and presenting an untenable plan, so that when it is inevitably rejected the tide of public opinion will turn in favor of the Saudi-led Coalition.

In a live televised speech commemorating the sixth anniversary of the war on Thursday afternoon, ِAbdulMalik al Houthi, the leader of the Houthis, refused Washington and Riyadh’s initiatives, explaining:

The Americans, the Saudis, and some countries have tried to persuade us to barter the humanitarian file for military and political agreements. We refuse that.

Access to oil products, food, medical and basic materials is a human and legal right that cannot be bartered in return for military and political extortion.

We are, [however], ready for an honorable peace in which there is no trade-off for our people’s right to freedom and independence or to Yemen’s legitimate entitlements.”

The Houthi leadership views the policies of the Biden administration as not far removed from those of his predecessor, Donald Trump. “Biden’s administration is following the same policies as those of former President Donald Trump. [They] have not offered a new plan for peace in Yemen. Washington has rather presented an old plan for the resolution of the conflict,” Ansar Allah spokesman Mohammed Abdul-Salam said, adding that the U.S. plan does not offer anything new. ”The plan has placed conditions for the opening of the Hodeida port and Sana’a International Airport, which are unacceptable,” he concluded.

No retreat, no surrender

The Houthis — empowered by six years of perseverance amid one of the most violent wars against some of the world’s most powerful military forces, not to mention the ability to reject the proposals set forth by those same powers — have little incentive to accept Riyadh’s offer. They see the end to the conflict coming from Washington in the form of an announcement of an immediate ceasefire, a departure of all foreign forces from the country, and lifting of the air and sea blockade as a pre-condition for any deal. “They should have demonstrated their seriousness for the establishment of peace by allowing food and fuel to dock at the port of Hodeida rather than put forth proposals,” Mohammed Ali al-Houthi said.

Over two thousand consecutive days of war have proven that Saudi Arabia is not ready to bring peace to war-torn Yemen. With the exception of a fragile ceasefire in Hodeida and a small number of prisoner releases, negotiations between the two sides generally reach a dead end, as Bin Salman looks for total surrender and nothing else. Numerous negotiations between Saudi Arabia and Yemen have failed, including UN-brokered peace talks in Switzerland in 2018. The Yemenis, who are now on the offensive, are unlikely to retreat or surrender. The offensive to recapture oil-rich Marib and sweep the shrinking areas that remain in Saudi control shows no signs of slowing down and, according to high-ranking military officials, the Saudi-controlled gas-rich province of Shabwa will be the next to be liberated. Moreover, retaliatory ballistic missiles and drone attacks against Saudi targets will continue.

Despite recent peace initiatives, the Saudi-led Coalition has only intensified military maneuvers in Yemen this week. Saudi warplanes are seen regularly above highly populated urban areas in the north of the country, dropping hundreds of tons of ordnance, most supplied by the United States. There is a near-consensus among the leadership of the Yemeni army and Ansar Allah that the current U.S. administration is participating in the battles taking place in the oil-rich Marib province. However, the Houthis have not directly accused the Biden administration of being involved in the fighting and are waiting for more evidence to do so. They may not have to wait long. On Tuesday, a sophisticated, U.S.-made MQ-9 Reaper drone was downed with a surface-to-air missile as it was flying over the Sirwah district in Marib.

Yemen: Trilogy of Victory, in the seventh year

Nasser Kandil

– None of the observers and followers of the Yemeni scene, supporters of the Yemeni people and their resistance represented by Ansar Allah, nor of their opponents supported the Saudi aggression to expected that the war will continue for this long, nor that the Yemenis can bear this amount of killing, destruction, siege, hunger and suffering, and stand at their goals to stop the aggression and lift the blockade as a condition for accepting any call for a cease-fire and the beginning of negotiations.

– Compared to all the wars that have been fought against the peoples of the region and their resistance forces, there is nothing that can be compared to the Yemeni case, as the six-years war is being fought directly by armies possessing tremendous military superiority, accompanied by a tight siege, which can be similar in terms of intensity of fire to the wars of Gaza and the 2006 aggression against Lebanon. But there is nothing like the Yemeni situation, they are wars of days and weeks, not years, and despite the fiery siege on Gaza, the Egyptian outlet remains a breathing lung for the besieged Gaza. In Syria Lebanon remained a lung to breath from, and in Syria, where the war continued for ten years accompanied by fierce sanctions, the fiery superiority of the Syrian state and its allies remained, and the sea remained under the hands of the Syrian state and its army, and a resource for armaments and imports that could be secured behind the back of the blockade, Whereas in Yemen, supremacy was for the camp of enemies, with fire and siege, and the six years continued and produced havoc, destruction, death, hunger and epidemics, and Yemen was steadfast

– During the sixth year, Yemen moved from steadfastness to regaining, developing missile salutations and drones, an unmistakable deterrent force despite the electronic jamming techniques possessed by the Americans and through them the Saudis, and within a year this weapon proved high technical capabilities that produced a military deterrence balance based on exceptional scientific superiority, and within a year the security of the Saudi rear in Yemen, and burned Aramco times, and became the security of the water The gulf and the energy corridors and ensure their flow in the hands of the Yemenis, and proved the failure of the war miserably to all those who were behind it, led by The American Joe Biden, who became president and was vice president on the day of its launch with the promise of ending it in weeks or months, and began maneuvers to get out of the war with the least losses, from trying to distinguish America from Saudi Arabia, to Saudi offers of a cease-fire, to U.S. calls for a political solution.

– On the eve of the seventh year, the Yemenis demonstrated their strength, so they presented the trilogy of victory, and their leader, Mr. Abdul Malik al-Houthi, appeared in a detailed explanation of the war, its objectives and context, and the conditions for accepting solutions through the duality of stopping aggression and lifting the siege, based on steadfastness, determination and clarity in reading the past and the present and drawing the horizon of the future. Within hours of the zero hours of the seventh year, the army and the resistance presented an intense and concentrated dose of deterrence elements, inflaming the Saudi depth with raids and missiles, saying with a full mouth that the threats of their leader had taken their way to implementation. During the day, hundreds of thousands of Yemenis gathered in the squares and streets, celebrating the Day of National Resilience, affirming their loyalty and cohesion with their leadership and army, the 2006 July scene of the destruction of the destroyer Sa’er, the speech of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, and scene of the people marching to southern Lebanon amid the cluster bombs in response to the call of the Leader of the Resistance. This trilogy victory was a harmonious symphony, drawing a clear ceiling in front of the American-Saudi alliance entitled, no place for maneuvers, the war will be a scourge, not a debate, and the negotiation path has a mandatory path: stop the aggression and lift the blockade, opening of the port and airport and the departure of foreign troops.

– Yemen enters the seventh year with the strongest confidence in victory, and the great victory has become the fruit of great patience, but this time it is really the patience of an hour.

اليمن: ثلاثيّة النصر سنة سابع

ناصر قنديل

لم يكن أحد من المراقبين والمتابعين للمشهد اليمنيّ، من مؤيّدي الشعب اليمنيّ ومقاومته التي يمثلها أنصار الله، وحكماً من خصومه المؤيدين للعدوان السعوديّ ليتوقع قبل ست سنوات في مثل هذه الأيام، أن تستمرّ الحرب طول هذه المدة، ولا أن يتمكّن اليمنيون من تحمل هذا الكم من القتل والدمار والحصار والجوع والمعاناة، ويصمدوا عند أهدافهم بوقف العدوان ورفع الحصار كشرط لقبولهم بأية دعوة لوقف النار وبدء التفاوض.

بالمقارنة مع كل الحروب التي خيضت وتخاض ضد شعوب المنطقة وقواها المقاومة، ليس هناك ما يمكن تشبيهه بالحالة اليمنية، فحرب ست سنوات تخوضها مباشرة جيوش تملك تفوقاً عسكرياً هائلاً، يرافقها حصار محكم، يمكن أن تشبهه من حيث كثافة النار حروب غزة وعدوان عام 2006 على لبنان، لكنها حروب أيام وأسابيع، وليست سنوات، ورغم الحصار الناري يبقى المنفذ المصري رئة تنفس لغزة المحاصرة، وتبقى سورية رئة يتنفس منها لبنان، وسورية التي استمرّت الحرب عليها عشر سنوات وما يرافقها من عقوبات، بقي التفوق الناري فيها للدولة السورية وحلفائها وبقي البحر تحت يد الدولة السورية وجيشها، ومورداً للتسلح وتأمين المستوردات التي يمكن تأمينها من وراء ظهر الحصار، بينما كل شيء في اليمن تفوق لمعسكر الأعداء، بالنار وإحكام الحصار، والسنوات الست تتواصل وتنتج الخراب والدمار والموات والجوع والأوبئة، واليمن صامد.

خلال السنة السادسة انتقل اليمن من الصمود الى استرداد زمام المبادرة، مطوّراً سلاح الصواريخ والطائرات المسيّرة، قوة ردع لا تخطئ رغم تقنيات التشويش الإلكتروني التي يملكها الأميركيون ومن خلالهم السعوديون، وخلال سنة أثبت هذا السلاح مقدرات تقنية عالية أنتجت توازن ردع عسكري مستنداً الى تفوق علمي استثنائي، وخلال سنة صار أمن العمق السعودي بيد اليمن، واحترقت آرامكو مرات، وصار أمن مياه الخليج وممرات الطاقة وضمان تدفقها بيد اليمنيين، وثبت فشل الحرب فشلاً ذريعاً لكل من كان وراءها، وفي طليعتهم الأميركي جو بايدن الذي صار رئيساً وكان نائباً للرئيس يوم انطلاقها بوعد إنهائها خلال أسابيع أو شهور، وبدأت المناورات للخروج من الحرب بأقل الخسائر، من محاولة التميّز الأميركي عن السعودي، الى عروض سعوديّة لوقف النار، الى دعوات أميركية لحل سياسي.

عشية السنة السابعة أظهر اليمنيّون بأسهم، فقدموا ثلاثيّة النصر على الملأ، فظهر قائدهم السيد عبد الملك الحوثي في شرح مفصل للحرب وأهدافها وسياقها وشروط قبول الحلول تحت شعار وقفها، وتختصرها ثنائيّة وقف العدوان وفك الحصار، وعبر عن مستوى الثبات والعزم والحزم والوضوح في قراءة الماضي والحاضر ورسم أفق المستقبل، وخلال ساعات حلّت الساعة صفر من السنة السابعة فقدم الجيش والمقاومة، جرعة مكثفة ومركزة من عناصر الردع فألهبوا العمق السعودي بالغارات والصواريخ، قائلين بالفم الملآن إن تهديدات قائدهم قد أخذت طريقها للتنفيذ، مستعيدين مشهد تدمير المقاومة في لبنان للمدمّرة ساعر ترجمة لخطاب السيد حسن نصرالله، وخلال ساعات النهار احتشد مئات آلاف اليمنيين في الساحات والشوارع، يحيون يوم الصمود الوطنيّ، يؤكدون تمسكهم بثوابتهم وتماسكهم مع قيادتهم وجيشهم، مستعيدين مشهد زحف الشعب الى جنوب لبنان وسط القنابل العنقودية تلبية لدعوة قائد المقاومة، فكانت هذه الثلاثيّة سمفونية متناغمة، ترسم سقفاً واضحاً أمام الحلف الأميركي السعودي عنوانه، لا مكان للمناورات، الحرب ستكون وبالاً لا سجالاً، وطريق التفاوض له ممر إلزامي وقف العدوان ورفع الحصار، أي فتح المرفأ والمطار وخروج القوات الأجنبية.

اليمن يدخل السنة السابعة أشدّ ثقة بالنصر، وقد بات النصر العظيم ثمرة للصبر العظيم، لكنه هذه المرة فعلاً صبر ساعة.

Martyr Qasim Soleimani and His Ever-presence in Every Battlefield in Yemen

Martyr Qasim Soleimani and His Ever-presence in Every Battlefield in Yemen

January 05, 2021

by Mansoureh Tajik for the Saker Blog

And never presume those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. On the contrary, they are alive with their Lord, receiving provisions. (Quran, 3:169)

One year ago, Sardar Soleimani, the Commander of Qods Force of the Islamic Revolution was killed in the hands of personalities that are in a tight competition with themselves to win first place in wretchedness and virulence. On the occasion of the 1st anniversary of Sardar Soleimani’s martyrdom, the leader of the Ansarullah Party and the resistance group in Yemen, Abulmalik Al-Houthi sent an official letter the content of which is quite noteworthy and significant.

I have chosen to translate that letter for the Saker blog for three specific reasons. First, to remember Sardar Soleimani’s martyrdom by highlighting Yemeni people’s significant role in regional resistance against the most wretched and virulent characters in the world. Second, to give a glimpse of how Sardar Soleimani has influenced, in life and in death, some of the most prominent personalities and movements in the Resistance camp. Third, to provide some insight into one of the most significant doctrines in Shi’a Islam: that of Mahdawiyyat that relates to notable events of the End of Time.

It is clear that the words and titles Abdulmalik Al-Houthi has used in his letter to describe Sardar Soleimani’s life, the conditions surrounding his martyrdom, his killers, and his role after his martyrdom were carefully chosen and are quite loaded with meaning. The specific verses of Quran he recites, too, carry significant messages especially for those who are deeply informed about Shi’a Muslim’s history and the prophecies regarding Mahdawiyyat signs and symbols in Islam.

Shi’a follows the developments in Yemen with a special interest and care because it is, according to reliable Shi’a sources, from Yemen that the movement and push against world injustices and oppressive transgressors begins its very final march to the heart of the army of the transgressors. Their activities, it is stated, will be supported by those of the Iranian Shi’a, God Willing.

Flag of Iran held side-by-side the most widely-used flag of the Houthies.

In the series regarding Imamat and Wilayat Faqih, I will, Inshallah, cover the concepts of Mahdawiyyat and End of Time according to Shi’a. For now, the Al-Houthi Leader of Yemen’s letter is important to review.

 “Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Rahim.”

“God’s Peace be upon the Great Prophet and his Pure Household.”

“God Almighty states in Quran, ‘Among the believers, there are men who remained truthful to the pledge they made with Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration’ [Surah 33 (Al-Ahzab), Verse 23]. Says the Truth, God, the Exalted, the Great.’”

“After citing this verse, I am remembering the martyr of the Islamic Ummah and the great warrior, Haj Qasim Soleimani (May God, the Exalted, be satisfied with him), upon whom God’s blessings were bestowed so that he is put side-by-side these believing men [refers to the ones singled out in the Quranic Verse]. The believing men whose most important trait is their sincerity and truthfulness with God, the Exalted.”

“Martyr Haj Qasim Soleimani, while in waiting (wa minhum man yantazir), was resolute and steadfast. The sincerity of Martyr Soliemani relationship with God, the Exalted, was evident in his strong will, his tireless efforts, and his dedication in the path of God, the Exalted. He was an ever-present warrior of Islam in every field and in every battle zone with his strong belief and his unwavering resolve.”

“It was God’s Favor and Blessing to have Martyr Haj Qasim Soleimani’s path in life, from his youth, to be an excellent soldier with belief, strong ethics, and highly effective in the path of God, the Exalted, and to serve with utmost sincerity and loyalty and without interruption, under the flag of Wilayat of Imam Khomeini (May God be satisfied with him) and subsequently under Imam Khamenei (May God protect him).”

“Martyr Haj Qasim Soleimani never tired in this path. The more time passed, the more intense his activities and the greater his impact became. He excelled in belief and sacrifice one step after another.”

“He did not alter his stance and no one could force him to do so because he was the true flag bearer of sincerity just as Imam Ali (Allahu-Salam) states, ‘loyalty and sincerity are twins.’ Just as God, the Exalted, states, ‘they never turn their backs to their promises and pledges.’ And this is the core issue in resistance and in steadfastness under all conditions and along the way. People of this caliber are neither influenced by material and non-material temptations and lose their true color nor do they waiver when faced with challenges and difficulties, nor do they succumb to attrition under ongoing sufferings and obstacles, nor do they become unsteady with talks and bickering of hopeless backbiters.”

“People like these are never afflicted with doubt in their stance and with their adherence to Wilayat and their grasp onto the Wilayat of Muhammad (Sallallahu-Alayhu-wa-Allihi-wa-Sallam) and his Pure Household. Haj Qasim had borrowed Ali’s (AS) bravery, Hussain’s (AS) sacrifice, and Abbas’s (AS) strong will and endurance. This brave warrior is a student of Sayydu-Shoahda’s [Imam Hussain] school of thought and he was, in his exemplary struggles, sacrifice, bravery, and humbleness, OF Hussain.”

“However, as he lived in the waiting phase (wa minhum man yantazir) and when he began transitioning into the state of martyrdom in the path of God, the Exalted, (wa minhum man qaza nuhbah), I must reiterate this point that Haj Qasim (May God be satisfied with him) achieved a rather special kind of martyrdom: For, the order for his killing was issued by the Yazid of our time, that is Trump and the US, and the operatives of this order were his criminal soldiers who were just like Shimr.”

“Haj Qasim offered his soul to God, the Exalted, and his body was torn into pieces just like that of Ali Akbar (AS). And it is here when our beloved sister Zaynab (SA) states, ‘O, God, please accept this sacrifice from us.’”

“Haj Qasim (May God be satisfied with him) become immortal in history just as he achieved the company of the Great Prophet Muhammad (SAWAW) and other True Prophets and the Sidiqin [The Truthful] and the martyrs and the good-doers regarding God’s Grace and Blessings. And just as he become immortal in the hearts of all free people of the world and the future generations. Just as he is, right now, present with his impacts and roles in every scene and every battlefield alongside us. He is present among us.”

“It was God’s favor upon him to make him a soldier among God’s, the Exalted, soldiers. He possessed one of the highest degrees of insight, intelligence, authenticity, sacrifice, and humbleness just as he was playing a significant role in every scene and every battlefield. Just as he achieve deliverance with his special kind of martyrdom. The sort of martyrdom that demonstrated how effective and impactful he was and how furious the oppressive transgressors were with him.”

“God, the Exalted, granted him the blessing of jihad so that he could, as God’s, the Exalted, soldier to raise the flag of Islam properly and just as it is befitting of devotees of Imam Hussain (AS). Martyrdom in the path of God is honor and dignity for us.”

“O, God Almighty, accept this righteous warrior, Haj Qasim Soleimani, next to You and assign him the most excellent position among the martyrs and grant us the favor to be followers of his path! Sallallahu-wa-Sallam ala Abdihi wa Rasulihi Muhmmad wa Alihi-Tahirin.”

Abdul-Malik Badriddin Al-Huthi,

11 Jamadi-al-Awwal; 6th Day 1399 [January 2, 2020]

May God grant us, too, His Favor to be in the same path as Shahid Sardar Qasim Soleimani, an authentic Shi’a of Imam Ali (AS). Peace be upon you.

يذكر أن قائد قوة القدس الجنرال قاسم سليماني ونائب رئيس هيئة الحشد الشعبي أبو مهدي المهندس استشهدا في 3 كانون الثاني/يناير الماضي بقصف صاروخي أميركي  قرب مطار بغداد الدولي.

SAUDI ARABIA FELLS VICTIM TO EXCHANGE OF ASYMMETRICAL STRIKES BETWEEN IRAN AND ISRAEL

South Front

In the Middle East the Houthi-Iranian alliance continues to harass forces of the Saudi-Israeli-US bloc with renewed vigour.

On November 25, a Greek-managed oil tanker was damaged in an attack on a Saudi petroleum terminal located near the Red Sea city of Jeddah. Col. Turki Al-Malki, a spokesman for the coalition, said the tanker was hit by shrapnel resulting from an attack by the Yemeni Houthis using a water-born improvised explosive device. The spokesman claimed that the WBIED was intercepted. Nevertheless, the tanker’s operator, the Athens-based TMS Tankers, said the Maltese-flagged Agrari received a direct hit.

“The Agrari was struck about one meter above the waterline and has suffered a breach,” the company said in a statement. “It has been confirmed that the crew are safe and there have been no injuries. No pollution has been reported. The vessel is in ballast condition and stable.”

The Saudi Ministry of Energy said firefighters had extinguished a fire that had erupted after the attack. A spokesman for the ministry stressed that Aramco’s fuel supplies to its customers were not affected by the incident. At the same time, satellite images show a large oil spill off the shores of Jeddah’s terminal.

The Houthis (also known as Ansar Allah) have not claimed responsibility for the attack. However, the usage of WBIEDs by the movement was widely documented in the previous years of war.

Just a few days ago, on November 23, the Houthis struck a Saudi Aramco oil company distribution station near Jeddah with a Quds-2 cruise missile. According to the Yemeni movement, the missile was developed and produced by its Missile Forces. Nonetheless, the Houthi successes in missile and drone development during a total naval and air blockade would hardly be possible without Iranian help.

In these conditions, it is interesting to look at the timeframe of the Houthi strikes on Saudi Arabia. The movement says that its strikes on Saudi military and oil infrastructure are retaliatory actions to regular acts of Saudi aggression against Yemen, including airstrikes on civilian targets. Years after the ‘victorious’ Saudi intervention in Yemen, the Saudi-led coalition has still not been able to even reach the country’s capital. So, the Kingdom uses its air dominance to punish the Yemenis for their own setbacks on the battleground. However, it seems that there is one more factor motivating the Houthis. Both recent attacks on Saudi Arabia took place after Israeli strikes on Iranian-affiliated targets in Syria.

Here is the timeframe: On November 18, the Israeli Air Force struck the countryside of Damascus and the south of Syria. On November 23, a cruise missile hit the Saudi Aramco distribution station near Jeddah. Early on November 25, the Israeli military once again launched missiles at Iranian targets near Damascus and in the south. Later on the same day, a WBIED targeted a Saudi terminal off the Red Sea. The slightly delayed response to the November 18 strike could be explained by the fact that the Houthi-Iranian alliance needed a few days to prepare for the resumption of actions against Saudi targets, which were on a relative decrease in the preceding months due to the Houthi focus on the ground offensive in the Yemeni province of Marib and nearby areas. As to Iranian sources, they  are as expected denying any links between Israeli strikes on Syria and missiles, drones and WBIEDs  targetting Saudi Arabia.

At the same time, the Kingdom’s role as lamb to the slaughter in the ongoing regional standoff between Iranian-led forces and the Israeli-US bloc is not news to independent observers. Saudi Arabia predetermined its current position with its own launching of the failed military intervention in Yemen and by actively aligning itself with Israel in both public and clandestine dimensions.

Transcript:

Hassan Shaaban, Expert in Yemeni Affairs:

Ever since the bourgeoisie – which originated in Europe right after the fall of the feudal system – decided to colonize the (rest of the) world; extract its wealth; gain control over its (natural) resources; and turn its people into consuming animals; ever since that moment, the Western political psyche, which believes in power-based realism, has come to target every country that stands in its way, and every country that has any degree of influence.

Yemen is situated here, (next to) the Bab al-Mandeb (Strait). (This Strait) is located in a (strategically) vital region. 60% of Europe’s energy supply and one eighth of the global economy flows through (it). Millions of barrels of oil pass through (Bab al-Mandeb) every day.

You are talking about a country that has a grip over (the movement of trade) anywhere in the world, in any region of the world. (For that same reason), the British dug the Suez Canal to form a (direct shipping) route to India and Asia.

Well, Bab al-Mandab is naturally created by God. Britain paid a fortune to build the Suez Canal, and Egypt sacrificed the lives of thousands of its people who died during its construction. (Thus, imagine) how much (the West) is willing to sacrifice to (gain control over) Bab al-Mandeb?

Which (countries) are located near the Bab al-Mandab (Strait). What countries border this (connecting) canal and this line that links Bab al-Mandab to the Suez Canal and the Red Sea?

(First, there is) Saudi Arabia, the Arab Zionist entity that mirrors the Israeli Zionist entity and has a significant influence (in the region).

Host:

We will talk about the benefits that Saudi Arabia (would gain from controlling the Strait)…

Shaaban:

(Second), there is Egypt, historically the oldest and most powerful Arab state. Third, we have Sudan, the richest (in natural resources) and the largest country at some point in history.

Host:

The country that was split, they managed to partition it…

Shaaban:

And here (pointing to the location on the map) are Eritrea, Ethiopia – which used to border the Red Sea – Somalia and Djibouti..

Well, what is there in the Red Sea? Go back to what (Israeli) Zionists have written about the significance of this Sea. Did you know – I am  sure you do – that Eilat (a port city), known as “Umm Al-Rashrash” (in Arabic), is Israel’s only maritime outlet towards Asia? Linking (Israel) to the Red Sea – or as some Israeli strategists call it, “Lake David”, this outlet is vital for the survival of the (Israeli) Zionist entity.

———

Look at the incredible location of Yemen. The Yemeni coastline stretches for around 1,900 miles, equivalent to 2,400 or 2,500 km along the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea.  

Host:

That is 2,500 km along the two seas.

Shaaban:

Yes, (equivalent to) around 1,900 miles.

Did you know that successive Yemeni governments did not form a naval military power despite the important and strategic location of Yemen along the sea?

Host:

What is the reason for that? Why?

Shaaban:

The reason goes back to Yemeni political decision-making…

 Host:

(Decision-making) controlled by the US?…

Shaaban:

(Nods his head) (The absence of a naval force) was an order. When the martyr Yemeni president Ibrahim al-Hamdi came to power in the 1970s, when he started planning and called a conference to discuss the security of the Red Sea, he was assassinated, he was murdered. And the party responsible for the assassination was Saudi Arabia.

The vital location (of Yemen) is significantly important for the colonially-created Gulf entities , and for the (Israeli) Zionist entity, which represents probably the West’s largest global investment. (Yemen) overlooks all of Asia all the way to China, and has this huge region (east Africa) within its reach. (In other words), (Yemen) is (in the region) where Asia and Africa meet. This is where Yemen is located.


Host
:

Do you mean that having control over the Bab al-Mandeb (Strait) is equivalent to having control over global trade (between) continents?

Shaaban:

Yes. It (also) means having control over the strait classified as the third most important worldwide.

Host:

What does the control over the Bab al-Mandeb Strait mean?

Shaaban:

As you have just mentioned in the report, having control over the Bab al-Mandab (Strait) means having control over the movement of the world’s economy, global oil transportation, and the route connecting Europe to India and China, and thereby to Asia. Even if we turn the opposite way, and focus on China and the port that it is trying to build in Pakistan in order to extend its maritime reach, (we will see that…)

Host:

(…that the route) will pass through Yemen and the (Bab al-Mandeb) Strait.

Shaaban:

It is a must. (China’s) “Belt and Road Initiative” passes through (the Strait).

Host:

China’s strategic project will only be completed if…

Shaaban:

(If) it goes through Bab al-Mandeb. Let me tell you something about Bab al-Mandeb. If you zoom in on it, you will see an island that divides it into…

Host:

(into) two channels…

Shaaban:

Exactly. The first (channel) is next to Djibouti, and is not suitable for deep-sea shipping. The other (channel) is about 12 km (in width) on the Yemeni (side). Yes, it is subject to international law, but it falls under Yemen’s sovereignty. (Not to mention that) it is the only channel (among the two) that is navigable. Therefore, what you called the bottleneck is the Yemeni (side of) Bab al-Mandeb.

Host:

The Yemeni (Bab al-Mandeb) not the Djiboutian for example..

Shaaban:

Exactly. Accordingly, if you also take into account (the importance of) Socotra and the group of islands. For example, look, roughly in this region, above Bab al-Mandab, there are groups of islands such as Zuqar, Perim and Hanish. In fact, the Hanish Islands have always been under dispute between Eritrea and Yemen. A confrontation (between the two countries) took place in the nineties because of this issue. The mountain in Zuqar Island rises to 600 meters, or approximately 624 meters. Do you know what this means?

Host:

It means that it overlooks the whole region..

Shaaban:

What if I told you that there are Israeli military bases in Eritrea? There are corvettes and naval vessels navigating in the Red Sea. They are docked at Eretria. What if I told you that there is a French military base in Djibouti, and an American military presence as well?

Host:

There is also a Chinese military base in Djibouti.

Shaaban:

I am going get to that (topic). Djibouti was established only to be rented like hotel. The US, Israel and other countries maintain (military) presences in Somalia. If you go up towards Sudan, you would notice that the Turks recently entered the sea area. The whole world is fighting over this area.

Then in 2014, the Yemenis, despite all that we have talked about, started a revolution, i.e. the revolution of September 21, 2014 under the leadership of Sayyed Abdulmalik Badr al-Din al-Houthi. Sayyed Abdulmalik, who forms (a strong) leadership, project and vision said: “Yemen will not be divided into regions”. Notice that after they (Saudi-led coalition) divided Mahra, Socotra, Abyan – I think – and Hadramout, (Ansarullah) brought them together as one region. In other words, Saudi Arabia wanted (to gain control over) some regions. However, this great Yemeni leader (Sayyed Abdulmalik) came and said: “we will not allow this”.  Saudi Arabia said…

Host:

The question we are seeking to answer is: “why did they wage a war (on Yemen)? Why did they start an aggression against Yemen?”

Shaaban:

Yes. Saudi Arabia said that it wants to (build) an oil pipeline that will pass through here. Furthermore, a Saudi magazine once wrote about (building) a marine channel that will also pass through Hadramout, thus connecting Saudi Arabia to the Arabian Sea. Here is the Indian Ocean and here is the Arabian Sea. What is the idea? Saudi Arabia, and others parties hiding behind it, want to avoid (the Strait of) Hormuz (controlled by) Iran, the great power that they cannot clash with. The solution for (Saudi Arabia) is to flee to the South (to Bab al-Mandeb).

Therefore, unlike what the (Saudis) say, their war in Yemen is not a war against Iran, it is a war to get away from Iran’s influence over the Strait of Hormuz. But unfortunately for them, there is a large force in Yemen called “Ansarullah”, a force with national vision unlike what they try to portray. (Ansarullah forces) have a Yemeni national project. They want to preserve the unity (in Yemen), the unity that the Emirates wants to destroy by dividing (the country). We can get into more details (about that) later. The Yemeni revolution led by Sayyed Abdulmalik gained influence and control over Ma’rib and the channels that we talked about, and thereby saying that “Yemen will not be any country’s backyard”. Yemen is not a territory that anyone can manipulate. It is an independent, sovereign state that has policies, that has the right to be present in this strategic region of the world.

How did (Saudi Arabia and its allies) perceive this issue? They believe that these Yemeni forces (Ansarullah), in one way or another, serve the interest of the Islamic Republic (of Iran) because they do not support America, they do not support Israel, nor are they tools like the (leaders who governed) before the (2014) revolution, before Sayyed Abdulmalik, before Sayyed Hussein’s project, the Quranic project based on the Quranic path.  They are not tools. They are not venal. They do not accept bribes as did many politicians who historically controlled Yemen’s political decision-making.

They will not be assassinated like they assassinated the martyr (President Ibrahim) al-Hamdi, even if they assassinated Sayyed Hussein (al-Houthi). The assassin of Sayyed Hussein got the order directly from these countries (Saudi Arabia and its allies), (who ordered the killing) of Sayyed Hussein because he chanted the slogan: “Death to America, Death to Israel”. What does “Death to America, Death to Israel “mean? (It means) death to the interests of those (who govern) this region of the world, death to their entities in this region of the world, death to their policy in this region of the world, and life to Yemen.

When Sayyed (Hussein al-Houthi) came up with the strategic slogan of Ansarullah, i.e. “Victory to Islam”, (he meant) the Islam that represents the identity and the independence of a nation. Yes, in this case, Yemen with its (strategic) geographical location and its rich history turned into a strategic political project. (Therefore,) it was necessary for (Saudi Arabia and its allies) to wage a war, to start this aggression. It was necessary for them to do what they are currently doing.

Host:

It was also a must for Ansarullah to fight them.

Shaaban:

(They fought) in defense (against the Saudi aggression)

Host:

We will show the outcomes of the (Saudi) aggression (on Yemen) in a quick report, then we will continue…

Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi: Macron Is Nothing But Puppet of Jewish Zionists

english.almasirah.net:Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi: Macron Is Nothing But  Puppet of Jewish Zionists

The leader of the revolution, Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi, said that the Islamic nation today is fraught with problems and crises, and the occasion of the Prophet’s birthday should be a station to face these challenges.

In his speech on the occasion of Prophet Mohammed birthday (PBUH), Sayyed Abdulmalik added that the cause of all the major problems and corruption that our nation and human society suffer from is the deviation from the Prophet’s message.

Regarding the French insult to the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the position of the French President Emmanuel Macron towards Islam, Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi said: Macron is nothing but a puppet of the Jewish Zionists, and they push him to insult Islam and the Messenger (PBUH).

The leader stressed that the tyrants US, Israel and their alliance are an extension of the distortion of the straight path, adding that the Western regime that permits insulting God and prophets, and prevents unveiling the plots of the Zionist Jews, is a witness to the control of the Zionist lobby over Western regimes and media.

Regarding the issue of normalization and between some Arab countries with the Zionist entity, Sayyed Abdulmalik Al-Houthi explained that declaring these deals is a betrayal and participating with enemies to target the nation.

He added that the Saudi authorities allowed the Jews flights while besieging the Yemeni people and imprisoning the free Palestinian people only because of their rightful stance against the Israeli enemy. He added that the Saudi, Emirati, Al Khalifa and the Sudanese regimes are partners with US and Israel in their plots.

About the assassination of the Minister Hassan Zaid, Sayyed Al-Houthi describes it as brutal, holding the Saudi aggression coalition responsible for the crime.

Yemeni Houthis Vow To Fight Israeli Plots As Netanyahu Signs Historic Deal  With UAE, Bahrain

The Ansar Allah movement (also known as the Houthis) continues pounding Saudi Arabia with drones and missiles.

Late on September 17, the Yemeni Air Force loyal to the Houthi government struck Abha International Airport in the Saudi province of Asir with Samad 3 combat drones, which can be used as loitering munitions. The Houthis claimed that the strike hit a military section of the airport causing material damage and casualties among Saudi forces.

The military infrastructure in the Abha airport area and southern Saudi Arabia itself has regularly become a target of Houthi missile and drone strikes. Just during the past month, Abha International Airport was targeted by at least 4 drone and missile strikes. The Saudi capital of Riyadh and oil infrastructure in the central part of the Kingdom are also not out of danger. The Houthis demonstrated this several times during the past few years. The most recent strike on Riyadh took place just a few days ago.

The September 17 attack, together with regular strikes on other targets inside the Kingdom, showed that efforts of the Saudi Air Force to destroy missile stockpiles and launching sites in Yemen did not lead to any notable impact.

Saudi proxies fighting the Houthis on the ground are also in a state of retreat. During the past few days, they lost even more positions south of the Marib provincial capital retreating from Najd al-Majmaa, Habisah, Ajam al-Sud and al-Atf.

The Maas Camp west of Marib city still remains in the hands of Saudi-backed forces. However, this stronghold is the last obstacle for the advancing Houthi forces in this part of the province. If the defense of pro-Saudi forces continues to crumble, the Maas Camp will be fully isolated and captured.

In the southern part of Marib province, Houthis and their local allies captured the area of Rahum. Here, the mid-term target of the Houthi advance is the town of Hurayb, located on the administrative border between the provinces of Marib and Shabwah.

It is interesting to note that the Houthi leadership recently declared that it stands against the US-promoted normalization with Israel and reaffirmed its support to Palestine. Abdul-Malik al-Houthi even stated that actions of Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain contribute to Israeli plots against Muslim countries. He claimed that Yemen has become the target of the Saudi-led intervention due to Yemen’s alleged resistance to the Israeli agenda in the region.

On September 15, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu officially signed historic peace treaties with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in Washington. The development is a major foreign policy victory for the administration of US President Donald Trump and its Israeli allies. The event was attended by Trump himself who noted that the courage of the Israeli and Arab leaders enabled these countries “to take a major stride toward a future where people of all faiths live together in peace and prosperity.”

On the other hand, the US State Department has already declared that the UAE and Israel could forge an alliance against Iran. Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, key US regional allies, will likely become a part of this effort. Therefore, the announced ‘peace and prosperity’ plan apparently includes a further strengthening of the pressure on Iran and even increases of chances of a potential military action against the republic.

The ongoing normalization campaign also triggered a new escalation in the Gaza Strip, including the exchange of strikes between Palestinian armed groups and Israel, as well as political instability in Bahrain. The population of Bahrain appears to be unhappy with the decision of the country’s leadership.

The modern Middle East could easily be compared with a powder keg that is ready to explode at any moment.

متشابهات كثيرة ‏ بين صنعاء وبيروت!‏

د. وفيق إبراهيم

يتماثل الوضع الحالي للبنان مع المشهد السياسي اليمني قبل 2014 بشكل يلعب فيه السفير الأميركي علنياً دور القائد الفعلي الذي يوزع التعليمات على قيادات القوى السياسية المحلية علنياً.

هذا ما كان يحدث في اليمن قبل نجاح أنصار الله قبل ست سنوات بإلحاق هزيمة كبرى بالقوى اليمنية المتحالفة مع الأميركيين والسعوديين. فتحررت صنعاء من هيمنة السفراء وأصبح قرارها يمنياً صرفاً برفض أسلوب نثر المكرمات الخليجية والذعر من الأميركيين.

وها هي صنعاء المتحررة تعمل على مجابهة الاحتلال الأميركي السعودي الإماراتي لما تبقى من يمنها السعيد بهدف إنهاء أسلوب هيمنة السفراء الأجانب ودحرهم من كامل بلادها.

لجهة بيروت تكاد السفيرة الأميركية المعتمدة في لبنان شيا تعلن نفسها متصرفة فعلية في شؤونه وشجونه، فتنتقل يومياً من العاشرة صباحاً وحتى مطلع الفجر في استقبالات وزيارات تشمل معظم أنواع السياسيين اللبنانيين حتى تكاد هذه السفيرة تعرف زوايا بيروت وقرى الشوف ومعراب وبيت الوسط وبيت الكتائب والقصر الجمهوري والسرايا الحكومي.

وعندما تنتابها ضائقة فعلية تتوجه الى عين التينة.

هناك جانب آخر، أصبحت السفيرة شيا ملمة به وهي التصريحات الصحافية التي تردّ فيها احياناً على منتقدي سياسات بلادها وترسل في الوقت نفسه إشارات ليعتمدها مقلدوها من السياسيين المحليين. بالإضافة الى تعمّدها هذا الأسلوب الإعلامي لتعميم ثقة حلفائها بقوة بلادها على مهاجمة اي قوة لبنانية حتى لو كانت بمستوى حزب الله وقائده اللبناني الإقليمي السيد حسن نصرالله.

لكن هذا الأسلوب ينافي الأعراف الدبلوماسية التي تفرض على الدبلوماسيين تسجيل اعتراض على منتقدي سياسات بلادهم لدى وزارة الخارجية المحلية.

فكيف تخالف شيا هذا المنطق؟ إنها طريقة أميركية صرفة يمارسها الدبلوماسيون الأميركيون في البلدان الخاضعة لهم والمنخرطة ضمن حركتهم الاستعمارية.

هذا ما أشار اليه القائد اليمني السيد عبد الملك الحوثي في خطابه الأخير الذي يربط فيه بين الانتصار الذي أنجزه اليمنيون في 2014.

وجاء ترجمة لمشروع يقوم على الوعي الثقافي الذي يربط بين مجابهة المستعمر ثقافياً واقتصادياً وأمنياً وبشكل شعبي عام مستحضراً اسلوب السفير الأميركي المعتمد الذي كان يحكم صنعاء السياسية في تلك المرحلة ويترك أثراً حتى في الناس العاديين الذين كانوا يجنحون لتقليد الغرب في ثقافاتهم.

وكان السفير السعودي في تلك المرحلة شيخ مشايخ قبائل اليمن والحاكم السياسي له تنصاع لأوامره دوائر القصر الجمهوري والوزراء والأعيان، لذلك فإن تمرد أنصار الله على الهيمنة الأميركية السعودية ذهبت نحو عصيان كامل في الثقافة والتاريخ والوعي والأعمال العسكرية فاستعاد اليمن السعيد لقبه القديم «أم العرب».

على مستوى لبنان استبق حزب الله كل الحركات الجهادية في العالم العربي بنشر ثقافة المقاومة التي هي إعلام وثقافة وحضارة وتاريخ ومقاومات عسكرية.

لقد نجحت هذه المقاومة بطرد العدو الاسرائيلي ودحرت الإرهاب في سورية وجبال لبنان.

لكنها تعرضت لمعوقات في مسألة نشر ثقافة الجهاد. وهذا سببه وجود ثماني عشرة طائفة لبنانية شديدة الاستقلالية سياسياً وتكاد تشكل محميات داخلية محمية إقليمياً وخارجياً وتاريخياً.

فيما اليمن يمنان فقط شمالي وجنوبي وتعدديته المذهبية تقتصر على مذهبين متقاربين لم يسبق لهما أن اقتتلا لأسباب دينية، لذلك كانت مهمة نشر الثقافة الجهادية في اليمن أقل صعوبة مما يعاني منه حزب الله في لبنان.

لكن الطرفين يتعرّضان للمنظومة الاستعمارية نفسها، التي تتشكل من قوى داخلية منصاعة للتحالف الأميركي السعودي الإسرائيلي، ألم يلتق وزير خارجية منصور عبد ربه هادي في أحد المؤتمرات بوزراء إسرائيليين بشكل علني، غير آبه بالانتقادات وكاشفاً بذلك باستجابته لطلب سعودي بإعلان التحالف مع «اسرائيل» عبر هذه الطريقة.

كذلك فإن حزب الله الذي نجح بنشر ثقافته في مجالات لبنانية وسورية وإقليمية واسعة يتعرض اليوم من المحور الأميركي – السعودي الإسرائيلي نفسه الذي يستخدم قوى داخلية طائفية مرتبطة بالمستعمر منذ القرن التاسع عشر بصفتها وريثة للصراعات الداخلية – الخارجية في تلك المرحلة.

بذلك يتبين مدى التماثل بين صنعاء وبيروت في مشاريع متشابهة تعمل في اليمن والعراق وسورية ولبنان وفلسطين على نشر ثقافة التحرّر من المستعمرين.

بما يؤسس لعصيان تاريخي يرفض تقسيمات المستعمر لمنطقة عربية رسمت خرائط بلدانها دبلوماسية بريطانية كانت تحتسي الخمر، وتسند رجليها فوق طاولة قريبة.

هذه اللحظات أنتجت معظم حدود البلدان العربية في المشرق، وتركت لدبلوماسية أخرى رسم حدود شمال افريقيا والشرق الأوسط بالوسيلة نفسها التي لا تتفاعل مع حقائق اللغة والتاريخ والتفاعلات، بل تستند الى مصالح المستعمرين فقط.

فهل تنجح صنعاء وبيروت بنشر ثقافة تصحيح التاريخ لصالح بناء المستقبل؟

هذا ما تفعله غزة وسورية والعراق واليمن ولبنان، هذه المناطق التي ترسل تجاربها الى كامل العالم الإسلامي في دعوة بصوت عالٍ مع ميادين قتال مفتوح لاستعادة مناطق يسرقها المستعمر الغربي الأميركي الإسرائيلي بتغطية خليجية وعربية وإقليمية منذ القرن التاسع عشر.

فهل بدأت المنطقة بترجمة ثقافة الجهاد في ميادينها القتالية؟

الجواب عند السيدين حسن نصرالله وعبد الملك الحوثي وجماهير المقاومة في الشرق الأوسط والعالم الإسلامي.
