Syria: The evolution of the assault on Jisr Al-Shughoor


JISR AL-SHUGHOOR’S TERRORIST DEFENSES HAVE COLLAPSED; SYRIAN ARMY BRACING FOR FINAL ASSAULT; ALL ENTRANCES UNDER ARMY CONTROL


 12 May 2015

IDLIB:

The evolution of the assault on Jisr Al-Shughoor to both evacuate 250+ Syrian Army regulars and their families and all patients and staff at the National Hospital took a major turn yesterday when the Syrian Army High Command announced “complete artillery control over all entryways into the town”.  In addition to this development, the Syrian Air Force conducted 17 sorties over Jisr Al-Shughoor destroying every fortification built by the terrorist Al-Qaeda/Nusra organization and its allies.  Many sorties and artillery shelling targeted the areas around the hospital in order to prevent an expected attack by a suicide bomber in a truck.   This terrorist tactic has become de rigueur in any assault on entrenched government forces.

ALERT:  Confirmed monitoring of rat telecommunications indicate major attrition in the ranks of the terrorist hyenas.  The attrition is attributable to deaths and injuries, and to significant numbers escaping to the north, away from the coming battle which is expected to be decisive.  In a formal statement by Nusra, other groups allied to it have been accused of “weakness”, “collaboration” and “lack of faith”.

I just received a memo that confirms the SAA is now in complete military control of the South and East entrances to Jisr Al-Shughoor.

Sanqara Town:  Syrian Army forces repelled an attempted assault on this small town inflicting many deaths and injuries on the attackers.

Saudi Oil Firm Aramco Targeted by Yemen ~ Yemen Updates: 11 May 2015


Saudi Oil Firm Aramco Targeted by Yemen


URGENT: Saudi Oil Firm Aramco Targeted by Yemen

TEHRAN (FNA)– Arab media reports said the facilities of the Saudi giant oil firm, Aramco, have come under attack by the Yemeni forces minutes ago.

The Arabic-language Al-Mayadeen television reported minutes ago that Aramco’s oil facilities in Zahran have come under attack by Yemen’s tribal forces.

Meantime, a tribal source said his tribe has pounded “Aramco’s facilities in Zahran Asir in the Southern parts of Saudi Arabia”.

Local people residing in nearby area said they have heard loud blasts at Aramco’s oil installations and “smoke is spiralling up from the facilities”.

Saudi oil companies have oil facilities both in Zahran in the Easternmost parts of the country near Bahrain and in Zahran Asir in the South.

Earlier today, Yemeni tribal forces once again fired mortar shells on the Saudi border city of Najran in retaliation for the monarchy’s airstrikes against the civilians across Yemen.

Yemeni tribal fighters fired mortar shells at Najran’s central prison, the Arabic-language channel of Sky News TV reported.

Over the past several days, the Yemeni tribal forces launched many mortar rounds at Najran in retaliation for the bombardment of their tribes by the Saudi warplanes.

On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia halted all flights to and from Najran airport as the Yemeni tribal fighters intensified their retaliatory attacks against the Persian Gulf kingdom’s troops at Najran.

Cross-border skirmishes between the Saudi troops and Yemeni tribes have flared up over the last five weeks, as the monarchy’s airstrikes continue and have so far claimed the lives of thousands of innocent people, particularly at border areas.

Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 47 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 3,623 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

On April 21, Saudi Arabia declared end to Yemen airstrikes after weeks of bombings, but airstrikes are still underway.

This is who USA attacks! Children not ISIS! USA is ISIS and they murder with impunity across globe all of our children … stay silent and they will target your children next …

There is a reason why enemy of Islam Saudi Arabia regime claims soon there will be “humanitarian pause” in Yemen and it is going to mean a halt in airstrikes against the country.

They are still stuck in the military quagmire, anxiously piling up demands on Ansarullah. They are desperate to see the resistance refrain from further movement of troops and artillery to commandeer and control the remaining parts of the country.

The pause might allow some humanitarian shipments into the country during that period, but this will not include easing the naval blockade on such shipments. This is because Saudi military spokesman Brig. Gen. Asseri is still talking up a new round of attacks; frantically saying “now is not the time for calm.”

It is evident Saudi military officials are not ready to admit “shortcomings” in the conflict to “wipe out” Ansarullah that had been planned long before. But it is what it is. They know, and the rest of the world knows, that none of the goals of their preplanned war has been achieved, including reinstalling former president Hadi and defeating Ansarullah. The House of Saud will not survive the moral, political and strategic disaster they have suffered so far either.

Still, Ansarullah will abide by any ceasefire, but it has every right to continue resistance as long as the Saudi-led clique remains a threat to the country. The resistance has achieved a strategic victory over Riyadh and they are determined to keep it that way. Much of the international community would agree; especially now that Riyadh has decided to cease all fire.

As it stands, the main loser in this conflict has to be the House of Saud. In contravention of international law, they led the southern Takfiri-Salafi bloc to war, promising victory, only to produce humiliating defeat and international condemnation.

Another loser is the United States, as it knew in advance that Riyadh had plans to attack Yemen and, if possible, destroy Ansarullah. And it approved, cheering the House of Saud on, refusing to rein in indiscriminate attacks on civilian targets, sending unconventional munitions, and using its influence at the UN Security Council to block an early ceasefire.

Another loser is Israel, as a result of which its stranglehold is being challenged as never before. This is a major defeat for Tel Aviv, as from now on the world will once again focus its attention on the questionable Israeli atrocities against Palestinians in the occupied lands.

On a general level, the sudden ceasefire announcement is a blow to the warmongers. They failed to redraw the Middle East map. With Riyadh’s failure to achieve its strategic objectives in Yemen and America’s failure to attain its strategic objectives in the region, the resistance emerges triumphant and the people of Yemen emerge unscathed and gloating. It’s not surprising.

International humanitarian activists set to sail for Yemen on Iranian ship ~ Yemen Updates: 10 May 2015


International humanitarian activists set to sail for Yemen on Iranian ship

A group of humanitarian aid workers, medical technicians, and peace activists from the US, France, and Germany along with journalists and physicians from Iran is setting sail for war-torn Yemen on Iranian “Rescue” ship.

“We are part of a humanitarian mission being carried out by the Red Crescent Society of the Islamic Republic of Iran. We are attempting to bring medical supplies, flour, and water to the people of Yemen,” read a joint statement released by members of Code Pink Women for Peace,International Action Center, United National AntiWar Committee, and US Veterans for Peace on Sunday.

A large number of physicians and a few journalists from Iran are with us on the ship and we intend to deliver “2,500 tons of medical supplies, foodstuff and tents” to the Hudaydah port on the Red Sea, the capital of the western Yemeni province of Al Hudaydah.

“Everything on the ship has been carefully checked to make sure that nothing that could be considered a weapon is on board,” it says.

Earlier in the month, Iranian planes tried to deliver medical aid and were cleared for landing by the Yemeni airports, but were repelled by Saudi fighter jets.

“Blocking the delivery of humanitarian aid is an extreme violation of international law. As our craft propels itself through the Persian Gulf, we are loudly urging no one to interfere with this peaceful humanitarian mission,” the statement read. Saudi Arabia has unleashed a “horrific bombing campaign” in response to a vast uprising demanding democracy and self-determination in Yemen.

“As citizen of the western world, nothing disturbs us more than the fact that the cruise missiles and other weapons being used to terrorize and kill innocent Yemenis, are provided by the United States government,” the statement noted. Even though our governments utilize “Human Rights” propaganda, they actually “isolate and demonize” certain countries.

“For more than half a century they have been coddling the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, one of the most blatant human rights violators on the planet,” it added. The Saudi regime, apart from beheading, torturing, and exploiting its own citizens, “represses people throughout the region.”

File photo shows Saudi officials carrying out an execution in public. Saudi Arabia has so far beheaded over 50 people this year. Last year, Saudi authorities executed 87 people, compared with 78 in 2013.

“The people of Yemen have long been held down by a corrupt un-democratic regime backed and supported by Saudi Arabia and the United States.” The people of Yemen have “risen up in revolution” in response to years of humiliation, repression and impoverishment.

“The Ansarullah organization, commonly called the “Houthis” in US media, is at the center of a broad coalition of forces that is writing a new constitution. Popular Committees have sprung up all across the country.”

Yemeni soldiers and Houthi fighters stand guard at the entrance of the Presidential Palace following a blast in Sana’a on February 7, 2015. (AFP photo)

Along with ISIL Takfiri militants and al-Qaeda, Saudi Arabia is “waging a campaign of violent terrorism” against Yemen. The US government backs the Saudi regime and its allies in their “abhorrent and immoral” war against Yemen.

“We call for all parties involved to lay down their weapons and enter the process of peaceful negotiations, and continue with the democratic national dialogue that’s taken place over the last three years,” it concluded.

The statement was clinched with three wishes for the people of Yemen, “Let the Hungry Children of Yemen Live!”, “This Illegal, Immoral Blockade Must End!” and “Don’t Block the Rescue Boat!”

On April 28, Saudi Arabia forced an Iranian cargo plane carrying medical aid and foodstuff for people in Yemen to return. The Iranian aircraft, which had earlier received permits from Omani and Yemeni aviation officials to cross into Yemen’s airspace, could not land at the Sana’a International Airport, as Saudi warplanes were violently striking the runway of the airport.

The development came less than a week after Saudi warplanes intercepted another Iranian airplane, carrying humanitarian aid to Yemen, and prevented it from entering the Yemeni airspace on April 22.

According to the latest UN figures, the Saudi military campaign has so far claimed the lives of over 1,400 people and injured close to 6,000 people, roughly half of whom have been civilians.

Yemeni Tribesmen Gain Control of Saudi City in Jazan

Fars News Agency ~ Yemeni tribal troops have gained control over a strategic city in the Southwestern Saudi province of Jazan, sources announced on Saturday.

Senior Yemeni militray sources said on Saturday that the country’s tribal fighters won control over the city of Ahad al-Masareha in Jazan after exchanging fire with the Saudi forces for only around 3 hours.

The tribesmen have also captured more than 60 Saudi troops after taking the control of the city, the sources added.

Taking a fair share of their spoils, the tribal forces also seized 22 Hummer vehicles, 17 armored Jeeps and huge amount of arms and ammunition in the operation.

Cross-border skirmishes between the Saudi troops and Yemeni tribes have flared up over the last two weeks, as the monarchy’s illegal airstrikes continue and have so far claimed the lives of thousands of…

#no2saudi ~ War Crimes and Ethnic Cleansing in Yemen ~ Yemen Updates: 9 May 2015


War Crimes and Ethnic Cleansing in Yemen

H34242342 A month  into its unilateral military aggression on Yemen, Saudi Arabia appears to have lost most of its composure, finding itself in a quagmire it never thought it could fall into – especially not in the most impoverished and instability-racked nation in the Arabian Peninsula.

Strong of its imperial might and its petrodollars, the Kingdom miscalculated its intervention in unruly Yemen, assuming that the country would offer but a meek resistance to its over-powering hegemonic will. And indeed, this war in Yemen hardly appears balanced when one militia finds itself facing a mighty military coalition of both Western and Arab powers, an alliance of some of the richest and most military powerful countries in the world against this one Yemeni tribal faction.

And yet Yemen has held true. As the houthis have often warned, “You might one day break our bones but you’ll never see us fall.” If such tirade was dismissed as misplaced bravado pre-March 25, when King Salman chose to unleash his warplanes onto an unsuspecting Yemen, four weeks of intense and bloody fighting have given this one sentence an entire new meaning.

Just as David faced Goliath over a millenium ago, the Houthis of Yemen are bent on showing Al Saud what metal they are made of. However one might feel about the Houthis’ political inclination or even their religious beliefs, there is a great deal of dignity in the loyalty and dedication they have demonstrated in holding their pledge to their leadership. For some men still — God and nation, are values worth standing up for and fighting for.

But what started as a desire to see restore a Saudi stooge in Sana’a – in this case, once resigned, twice runaway President Abdo Rabbo Mansour Hadi, has devolved into a sinister campaign against Yemen’ Zaidi community.

Labeled by Riyadh as both a political and religious threat for they dared aspire to remove themselves from any form of feudality, the Houthis have been discriminated against on account of their affiliation to Zaidi Islam, one of the oldest branch of Shia Islam. Zaidism emerged in Yemen in the 8th century, and is rooted on the teachings of Zaid, the grandson of Imam Hussein. Declared a heresy by Wahhabi Saudi Arabia at the turn of the 18th century, Al Saud has long tried to outroot Zaidi Islam from southern Arabia, where it ambitioned to assert its own ascetic, violent and reactionary interpretation of Islam – Wahhabism.

If King Salman sold his war on Yemen to western media by arguing he sought to restore democracy in this corner of the world, his intentions are much sinister it appears as his military has systematically and indiscriminately targeted heavily populated areas in northern Yemen, where Zaidis happen to be in majority.

To believe that the world most fierce theocracy would ever want to promote democratic values, let alone support its inception would be laughable if the world governments had not repeated the mantra, twisting the narrative of war so much on its head that people have been led to believe that Yemen, like a temperamental child should be made to heed the calls of its masters in the running of its affairs.

When all failed the old specter of sectarianism was raised, a proven formula aimed to rationalize what cannot be justified.

By any accounts, and under international law any military aggression against another country can never be sanctioned. And yet the world bowed to Saudi Arabia with so much enthusiasm that even the United Nations had to withdraw in silence.

But Saudi Arabia’s crimes have become too grand and too disturbing for the world to want to brush it under the rug.

Unknown to the public, thousands of Zaidi Muslims have died since March 25, most of them in northern Sa’ada, the Houthis’ main stronghold. Those men, women and children were civilians, not soldiers or militia men. They were mothers, fathers, sons and daughters, Yemenis with aspirations and dreams.

Their life was forfeited in Riyadh for they dared hold on to their forefathers’ tradition of Zaidism.

To ensure maximum efficiency to its campaign, the Kingdom has resorted to using cluster bombs. Interestingly this particularly vicious weapon of war was solely used in Sa’ada and neighboring regions, at the heart of Yemen’s Zaidi community. But of course the world media have kept silent on such tragedies.

According to Cluster Munition Coalition, a rights group campaigning against the use of cluster bombs, such weapons have been proven fatal to civilian populations. Actually 98 percent of all cluster bombs victims are civilians, of which 27 percent are children. Could it be that Saudi Arabia is merely conducting a covert ethnic cleansing south of its borders?

And while “genocide” might not be the right word to define the type of campaign the Kingdom is running, an investigation should be launched to establish whether of not war crimes have been indeed committed. On that, many Yemenis are rather clear on the answer!

Money, powerful friends and oil do not absolve one nation from abiding by the standards and rules of international law.

One rights group has already sounded the alarm this April. Speaking to the press on a report about Yemen, Human Rights Watch arms director, Steve Goose stressed, “These weapons should never be used under any circumstances. Saudi Arabia and other coalition members – and the supplier, the US – are flouting the global standard that rejects cluster munitions because of their long-term threat to civilians,”

To which he added, “Saudi-led cluster munition airstrikes have been hitting areas near villages, putting local people in danger.”

Cluster munitions have been banned by an international treaty signed in 2008 treaty called the Convention on Cluster Munitions, signed in Dublin by over 100 governments. Saudi Arabia, US, and the recently deposed US and Saudi-backed Yemen government were among the small number of ultra-militarist governments that refused to sign a 2008 agreement between 118 countries seeking to ban cluster bombs.

As the Houthis and their supporters have moved forth against the Saudi coalition, advancing further into southern Yemen where Al Qaida militants have disguised themselves as pro-Hadi forces, to covertly cease control over yet more territories, there have been signs the Saudis and the Gulf monarchies are further escalating their savage military actions against Yemen.

Aid convoys have been bombed, food warehouses have been burned to cinders, while food and medicine have been prevented from entering the country. 26 million Yemenis are being held hostage by Saudi Arabia while the international community looks on idly.

There is only one real question people need to ask themselves. How many more Yemenis will need to die for the concept of justice to regain substance.

Yemeni lives matter!

IDLIB: THE ASSAULT ON JISR AL-SHUGHOOR IS HOURS AWAY

 

10690008_750309485042705_2768771903190913680_n

Syrian Armed Forces are now in a position around South Jisr Al-Shughoor to see every event around the National Hospital where 250 Syrian servicemen are surrounded by the American-supported terrorist savages of Jaysh Al-Fath and Nusra/Alqaeda.  Intercepted communications record statements from rat commanders directed to Turkey explaining that the campaign to slaughter the remaining Syrian soldiers will begin with a huge suicide bombing inside a truck.  Needless to say, the soldiers inside the National Hospital are aware of this and their spotters have peeled their eyes in search of any suspicious vehicle.  In the meantime, the Syrian Army High Command has made no secret of huge reinforcements arriving on the scene to bolster the defenses and to extract these brave soldiers now in harms way.  Towns and villages in northern Hama are becoming conduits for the movement of armor and infantry as the Syrian Air Force continues to frustrate rat efforts to build up a force capable of attacking the hospital.

Via Wikimapia: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.808147&lon=36.313891&z=16&m=b

At the Sugar Factory, Kufayr, Mushayrifa and Ishtabraq, the Syrian Army can now look deep into the area and know exactly what is taking place militarily.  We expect the assault to take place any minute now barring weather conditions which might prevent the air force from actively participating.  That is a great concern.

 I will be gone on Sunday and can only post on the following day.  I look forward to more great news.  Ciao. Ziad

Syrian Army rolling over the American-supported nihilist rodents in both the Qalamoon and Al-Qunaytra

SYRIAN MILITARY ANNIHILATES TERRORISTS IN THE GHOUTA; RAT-STATS GALORE

jp-1774DAMASCUS:  With the Syrian Army rolling over the American-supported nihilist rodents in both the Qalamoon and Al-Qunaytra, nothing could be worse for these infernal plague-carrying vermin than to have the legitimate Syrian government smash their ranks and fortifications in the East Ghoutaa, and, yet, that is what happened exactly.

Harastaa:  In the area of the Salaahuddeen (Saladin) Mosque, a largely ‘Alloosh group from the Jaysh Al-Islam was pummeled first by artillery, strafed by helicopters and then overrun by the Syrian Army’s now-crack corps of infantry.  In the process, 3 pickup trucks with Doschka cannons attached were completely destroyed and their passengers all killed.  In the process of attacking the rodents here, the SAA also came upon a fortified nest with 14 rodents inside and killed them all:

#no2saudi ~ Washington and Saudis Plan Escalated Aggression on Yemen ~ Yemen Updates: 8 May 2015


Saudi Aggression on Yemen Intensifies

Washington and Saudis Plan Escalated  Aggression on Yemen

by Stephen Lendman

On Thursday, John Kerry met with Saudi officials in Riyadh. They planned escalated aggression on Yemen harming defenseless civilians most.  A so-called proposed 5-day humanitarian ceasefire is phony. Terror-bombing continues. US/Saudi enforced blockade prevents enough essentials to life from entering Yemen.  Suggesting a limited pause in fighting is willful deception. Washington wants all-out terror war against 25 million Yemenis.

It wants control regained over its former client state – no matter how much mass slaughter and destruction it takes to achieve it.

It bears repeating what other articles stressed. Yemen is Obama’s war – using Saudis and other regional rogue states as US proxies.

Six weeks of terror-bombing achieved nothing strategically. Nor have thousands of imported takfiri terrorists been able to challenge Houthi rebels effectively.

Is large-scale invasion planned? Launching one assures a far greater bloodbath than already.

On Wednesday, Yemeni UN envoy Khaled Alyemany representing the illegitimate (US-installed) ousted government called for intervention by foreign ground forces.

Russia’s UN envoy Vitaly Churkin called invading Yemen “reckless – an escalation of the situation.”

“What we need is a speedy resumption of negotiations under the mediation of the United Nations,” he stressed.

Otherwise, expect endless conflict, far more deaths, destruction and mass displacement, as well as greater humanitarian crisis conditions than already.

On Thursday, UN humanitarian coordinator for Yemen Johannes van der Klaauw called for an immediate halt to fighting, saying:

“Civilians were reportedly targeted while they were trying to flee to safer areas, having been trapped in Aden with limited or no access to water, food and health care for weeks.”

“People in Aden have endured extreme hardship as a result of conflict over the last six weeks and must be able to move to safer areas to seek medical and other assistance.”

“Violence towards civilians and aid workers, and attacks on hospitals and other civilian infrastructure, must stop immediately.”

On May 7, Yemeni doctors and other medical workers demonstrated in front of Sanaa’s UN office. A doctor attending the rally said:

“We have come here…to call for the UN Secretary-General to put an end to this genocide war against the Yemenis. Many patients die at the hospitals because of” no fuel or medical supplies.

Thousands have died, mostly noncombatant civilians either in harm’s way or deliberately targeted.

Thousands more were injured, many maimed for life. Hundreds of thousands have been displaced – desperate people in harm’s way wherever they go.

Continued Saudi terror-bombing and proxy takfiri terrorist attacks assure it.

Riyadh’s military spokesman Brig. General Ahmed al-Assiri responded to Houthi and tribal fighters’ cross-border attacks in retaliation against Saudi terror-bombing, ludicrously saying:

“The Houthi militias have crossed red lines and they will be dealt with differently now. (They’ll) pay a harsh and expensive price.”

“The formula has changed after Saudi towns and civilians” were shelled.

AP said Houthis and allied forces consolidated control over most of Aden while Kerry was in Riyadh. The previous day they “overwhelmed” Tawahi’s downtown district and an area presidential palace.

Reuters reported Riyadh’s vow to hit Houthis hard despite a 5-day ceasefire offer. Asseri declined to say if ground invasion is coming. All options are open, he stressed.

In a letter to UN officials, Houthis called for international action against Saudi-led aggression.

Senior Houthi official Tawfiq al-Himyary denounced Riyadh’s phony ceasefire offer – calling it “cover” for its failures.

“Saudi Arabia feels it is in trouble after more than 40 days of aggression,” Himyary said. “It did not reach its stated goals, but killed and displaced thousands of civilians.”

“Saudi Arabia has no right to attack the Yemenis or even to give them any kind of truce. There is no trust in this regime at all.”

In April, it lied claiming an end to terror-bombing – replacing it with diplomatic efforts to resolve things.

Dirty war without mercy continued – at times more intensively than earlier. Comments from Riyadh lack credibility.

Rogue regimes operate by their own rules. Ruthlessness defines them – horrific war crimes by any standard.

Expect endless conflict to continue. Yemen is being systematically raped. It’s becoming one of history’s great crimes.

Obama bears full responsibility. Saudis and other rogue regional partners share it. Millions of Yemenis suffer largely out of sight and mind.

Dan lay down upon the blanket, and, with his hand upon his knapsack, gazed at the small red ember burning amid the ashes. When the last spark faded into blackness it was as if his thoughts went groping for a light. Sleep came fitfully in flights and pauses, in broken dreams and brief awakenings. Losing himself at last it was only to return to the woods at Chericoke and to see Betty coming to him among the dim blue bodies of the trees. He saw the faint sunshine falling upon her head and the stir of the young leaves above her as a light wind passed. Under her feet the grass…

Saudi Aggression: Yemen Strikes Back ~ Yemen Updates: 7 May 2015


Saudi Aggression: Yemen Strikes Back


34231111It seems that the Yemeni rebels – the Houthis – have lost patience with Saudi bombs raining upon their heads, and have decided to launch a counteroffensive against Saudi Arabia by extending the range of their operations. On May 4 armed militias of the Bakil tribal federation attacked four military outpost on the Saudi border. These attacks were undertaken in response to the ongoing shelling of the northern regions of Yemen, which led to a massive civilian death toll. Militia units have manged to kill 12 Saudi soldiers, while the surviving troops retreated to the Jabal Jahfan mountain and the town of Ar Radif. In the meantime, Bakil tribal forces have managed to get hold of stockpiles of small arms and ammunition. Thus the Houthis and the Yemeni tribes that support them have moved this war to the aggressor’s soil. It should be noted that the Bakil and Hashid tribal federations have always been the backbone of the Yemeni regular armed forces. The former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh who supported the Houthi uprising was born in a Hashid tribe.

On the next day the Houthis started shelling the Saudi border city of Najran and its outskirts, which resulted in a massive power blackout. No information about the possible civilian casualties has been provided as of yet. Saudi authorities decided to shut the local airport and close all schools in the area. Several shells exploded near hospitals, government buildings and houses, while dozens of cars were destroyed by shell fragments. A stream of menacing statements that were made by Yemeni sheiks resulted in the exodus of civilians from the border regions of Najran and Jazan. Yet, those areas are mostly populated by former immigrants from Yemen that adhere to the Shia branch of Islam. There’s more than 1 million Ismaili followers that represent a major sect of Shia Islam in Najran, while up to 2 million former Yemenis reside in the Jazan Region are predominantly Zaidi sect followers. Apparently, those leaving border areas are Sunnis of Saudi origin.

In an attempt to seek vengeance, Arab coalition aircraft struck airports in Sana’a and Hodeidah, along with positions of Yemeni regular troops that are supporting the Houthis. Airstrikes have also been carried out in the “southern capital” of Yemen – Aden, where brutal street fights between the remaining forces of the “President in exile” Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi still trying to hold ground, and the Houthis continue on. Violent skirmishes have been reported in the outskirts of Aden, at the same time, rumors about coalition paratroopers being dropped off in the area have been refuted.

Arab coalition air forces have also bombed the city of Sa’dah along with the territories of Saada Governorate, leaving 20 people dead and many more injured. Saudi Air Force fighters launched more than 100 air-to-surface missiles over Yemen. Meanwhile, the President of Yemen “in exile” Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi appointed May 17 the date of a special conference on the situation in the country in an attempt to resume national dialogue. As expected this conference will bring together all the political parties of Yemen except for the Houthis and representatives of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. It’s believed that a total of 250 delegates representing various Yemeni political parties and movements will be gathered in Riyadh to discuss the situation. But the fact is that none of these parties have any actual influence in the country they try to represent. It is not clear of what use for Yemen these discussions may have in the absence of representatives of the two leading military and political movements. All of this is reminiscent of a feast in time of plague. It is curious that Mansur Hadi has explicitly demanded that the CCG states to hold this meeting in the Saudi capital back in March.

The barbaric bombings of the Yemeni capital – Sana’a – have resulted in the disruption of electricity, has shut down all means of communication, and has caused shortages of food and clean water. The estimated economic damage that has been inflicted upon Yemen by the bombing raids exceeds 32 billion dollars. In fact, Yemen’s economy is being utterly and completely destroyed by these daily attacks, yet the Houthis and those army units that remain faithful to Ali Abdullah Saleh are still holding their ground.

On the other hand, the supporters of Mansur Hadi have suffered one crushing blow after another. It is already clear that without a large-scale invasion by Arab coalition troops there’s no saving them. But Saudi generals have found themselves unable to launch an assault from the north as the border regions of the kingdom are occupied by Yemenis that enjoy full support of the local tribes. Moreover, they are bound to heed growing discontent in other regions of Saudi Arabia, especially in the oil-producing Eastern Province,  home to some 2.5 million Shiites. The ruling royal family is torn apart by internal contradiction, and the fact that king Salman has recently changed a number of key figures in the government is not helping him contain the growing tension. The King’s entourage demands to stop the war against Yemen here and now.

To make matters even worse there’s been a number of reports published recently that hint that this disastrous military adventure is the doing of Washington, in an attempt to compete with Iran in Yemen, all while using Saudi arms and money. Indeed, in September 2014, Barack Obama named US cooperation with Yemen a successful example of his country’s struggle against Al-Qaeda. This outpost on the Arabian Peninsula was the testing ground for American technological innovations designed to combat terrorism, namely unmanned aerial vehicles. However, the civil war, which began in Yemen, showed that the idea of the White House combating terrorism using this technology alone is severely flawed, although its could have reduced US military casualties.

Another part of US strategy to wage wars “with the least loss of life” is the use of its regional allies to do all the fighting on Washington’s behalf. Under this approach, the United States would have never intervened directly, even if a situation demanded the use of force, instead Washington would have loved to limit its actions by providing support to its allies in the region. But less than a year after the announcement of this new strategy we are witnessing the catastrophic results of its application in the Arabian Peninsula. Characteristically, Washington would hope to have better luck next time. Saudi Arabia has taken the initiative in the Yemeni operation, while enjoying political, diplomatic and intelligence support from the United States, and failed. The example of this operation shows how the United States will be carrying out armed interventions in the future, but Iraq and Syria have proven that limited air operations lead to no political or military results that would be worth mentioning.

Saudi military aggression in Yemen is no mere attempt to suppress a Shia uprising near the borders of the KSA, it is nothing but the continuation of internal and external processes that were triggered by the “Arab Spring.” The new Saudi king is trying to turn the defeats of previous years into his future triumph. Riyadh’s intelligence activities are getting more noticeable in Iraq, Syria, and Libya as it tries to extend the anti-Iranian front. the King’s subjects are pushing hard to negate the political losses from the new US rapprochement with Iran, while trying to establish a broad military-political cooperation with Turkey, Pakistan, Qatar and Egypt. But there’s nothing to write home about in terms of results, especially in Egypt, which may soon be overrun by Islamists.

It’s not going to be long before Saudi Arabia realizes that expensive modern weaponry purchased in the US for tens of billions of petrodollars does not bring victory on its own. The war the KSA has launched against Shiites on all fronts is difficult to maintain due to its asymmetric nature and in these circumstance it’s almost impossible to score a military victory. It may take years and will surely require huge financial spending. And while oil prices are low there will be no means for the Kingdom of getting the necessary funding, especially in a situation where the Saudi budget has already been torpedoed by Al Saud’s short-sighted policies.

War in Yemen will show whether Saudi Arabia is able to respond to regional calls, by replacing the United States in its role as Middle Eastern gendarme. The criterion here is the ability to achieve a military victory without a call for direct assistance from US military troops, but it seems that the Kingdom is already going down in flames. No changes in the order of succession of the Saudi throne will save Riyadh if it doesn’t change its foreign policies, while ceasing attempts to bring down Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Iran. In the meantime, Salman plays exclusively in favor of Turkey and Qatar, stuck on a trail that was skillfully avoided by the previous king, Abdullah. But any resident of the Arabian Peninsula knows that once you start playing in favor of Qatar – you start playing against yourself and lose.

كشف أطباء وخبراء أسلحة في اليمن أن إصابات المواطنين المتواجدين الان في المستشفيات  من جرّاء غارات العدوان السعودي الامريكي ” عاصفة الحزم ”  تشير إلى استخدام الطائرات السعودية أسلحة محرمّة دولياً، معلومات تتطابق مع ما أعلنته منظمة «هيومن رايتس ووتش» حول استخدام التحالف ذخائر عنقودية محظورة. «صنع في أميركا» عبارة لم يشاهدها ضحايا القصف الذي يشنّه التحالف السعودي، لكن خبراء الأسلحة وأطباء  يؤكدون استخدام تلك القنابل المحرمة دوليا على الحدود اليمنية الملتهبة.
وبحسب مسؤولين، فإن التقرير الذي أعلنته منظمة «هيومن رايتس ووتش» بهذا الشأن يعدّ دليلاً قاطعاً على حرب الإبادة التي ترتكب بحق المدنيين، على حد تعبيرهم.
وقد تفتح اتهامات محلية ودولية للغارات السعودية الباب واسعاً لإدانتها ومعها الولايات المتحدة التي توّرطت ببيع مثل هذه الأسلحة المحرمة لتجربتها على اليمنيين.

US ‘paying’ Saudi Arabia to pound Yemen ~ Yemen Updates: 6 May 2015


US ‘paying’ Saudi Arabia to pound Yemen: Analyst


america_the_great_satan The United States is playing a very deceitful role through showing a concerned face about the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, but it is paying Saudi Arabia to pound the impoverished country, says a geopolitical analyst.

This shows Washington’s hypocrisy “because they can’t see that Yemen will be directed by actually a democratic government [and] because they want to control Yemen,” Peter Koenig told Press TV on Wednesday.

Koenig made the remarks while commenting on a statement by US Secretary of State John Kerry that said he would talk to Saudi Arabian officials to consider temporary halts in airstrikes against Yemen in a bid to facilitate humanitarian aid operations.

Kerry is scheduled to arrive in Riyadh after he paid visit to the African nation of Djibouti, home to the main US military base on the continent, just across the Gulf of Aden from Yemen and Saudi Arabia.

The US is paying “Saudi Arabia and Qatar to attack them [people of Yemen] and then Kerry comes at the humanitarian gesture, financing $2 million to help Djibouti to accept strategies and security aid or whatever they say they do to provide humanitarian aid to Yemen,” Koenig said.

“This is absolutely unbelievable,” he said. “I would just simply make the comment that this is a murder of the first rank, of the first degree what the US is instigating through other countries, through proxies.”

Saudi Arabia launched airstrikes on March 26, against the Ansarullah fighters of the Houthi movement, without a United Nations mandate, in a bid to restore power to the country’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Koenig went on to say that the United States cannot allow democracy in Yemen “because the port of Aden is very important for them. It’s a very strategic position.”

The United States wants former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh “back or Hadi and both of them are puppets of the United States. They do whatever the United States wants them to do,” said the geopolitical analyst.

Washington has been a key supporter of Riyadh aggression in Yemen, providing logistical and intelligence support to Saudi airstrikes. It has also dispatched its warships near the war-torn country.

Yemen: Formation of High Popular Council for General Mobilization


Apaches Bombing Yemen
 

Different factions across Yemen have established a national council aimed at uniting the local environment in Yemen against the US-backed Saudi aggression.

Sources in Sanaa told al-Manar that the Yemeni factions met on Wednesday in the capital, Sanaa, and formed the High Popular Council for General Mobilization.

The factions said the aim of forming such council is to “unite and strengthen the local front against the Saudi aggression,” and to “set dialogue with all the Yemeni factions,” the sources said.Yemen flag

The council is also tasked with supporting the Yemeni fronts with both military and financial aids, according to the sources.

The council comprises different Yemeni parties, movements, unions, associations, activists and clerics, the sources added.

Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi-US coalition. Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to Yemen’s fugitive president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia.

On April 21, Saudi Arabia declared the end of the aggression, dubbed “Decisive Strom,” and the start of another campaign called “Restoring Hope.” The Saudi-led warplanes are still conducting airstrikes on several areas across Yemen.

Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.
