1397/8/21 | 11:31
  Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen secretary general Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jafari has ruled out the possibility of resolving Yemen crisis through Pakistani mediation if Houthis are not taken on board.   He said that impartiality remains an integral part of mediation and excluding the legitimate stakeholder such as Houthi Movement (Ansarullah) and their allies, would prove partiality in favour of Saudis and their puppets. “People of Yemen had already rejected Mansur Hadi Abd Rabbuh and Saudi Monarchy had imposed war on Yemen and has ...

US to Saudi Arabia: No more ‘bombings in Yemen’

1397/8/21 | 11:31
  The United States of America has announced to halt the refueling operation of coalition jets and bombers, the only active part in the Saudi led coalition campaign against the Houthi rebels in Yemen.

After military failure, Saudi, allies resort to diplomacy on Yemen’s Hudaydah

1397/5/8 | 11:31
Political experts believe that after Saudi Arabia and its regional and international allies failed to conquer Yemen’s Hudaydah port through military force, they are currently turning to diplomatic means in order to reach a settlement with the Houthi Ansarullah fighters, thus attesting to ability of the country’s popular forces to head off aggression against the Yemeni people.

1397/4/13 | 11:31

Hodeidah and the Saudi Coalition’s Deliberate Starvation of Yemen

1397/3/30 | 11:31
  Patrick Cockburn explains what the Trump administration’s support for the attack on Hodeidah will do to Yemen: The US is encouraging the UAE and its allies to take Hodeidah to break the deadlock, by tightening encirclement of the Houthis. But this is a long way from taking Sanaa and forcing the Houthis to surrender. What the Hodeidah operation may do is turn a humanitarian disaster, which the UN is already calling the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, into complete catastrophe. Three quarters of the 27 million Yemenis already ...

More than a dozen civilians were killed and several others injured when Saudi military ...

1397/1/11 | 11:31
  The president of the Houthi Revolutionary Committee has strongly dismissed allegations that Iran is providing arms to Yemeni forces in the fight against the Saudi-led military aggression against Yemen, stressing Yemeni army soldiers and fighters from allied Popular Committees would have conquered Riyadh if Iran had been able to provide military aid. “If we had [had] the alleged Iranian support, we would have been in Riyadh today, even if we had [had] the alleged Iranian technology, we would have targeted them from the first day,” ...

Saudi enslavement of Pakistan

1396/12/3 | 11:31
Pakistan succumbing to Saudi Arabia’s pressure to send in more troops to the kingdom comes as Riyadh continues its onslaught against Yemen’s Houthi rebels.

1396/11/12 | 11:31
  The Houthi armed group control a large swath of territory inside Saudi Arabia, The New Khalij has reported, however the kingdom has not mentioned this publically.   “The real story is about a cover-up of Saudi military embarrassment and the imminent risk of wider conflict from which Iran, at little cost to itself, will only profit,” Simon Henderson, Baker Fellow and Director of the Gulf and Energy Policy Programme at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy said.   “The Houthis effectively control a strip of Saudi ...

What next for Britain in Yemen?

1396/7/11 | 11:31
  When the Houthi uprising began in 2004, Saudi ears inevitably twitched.

This would not be a competing autocracy, it would be something far worse in Saudi eyes; a republican democracy, with women in elected office and an example of how religious states can be run democratically, without the need for kings at the ...
