Dozens of people have been killed in a series of air raids by Saudi Zio-Wahhabi on police buildings in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a as well as other areas across the war-torn Arab state.

Medical sources and police said on Monday that the overnight Saudi Zio-Wahhabi air strikes hit a local police building and the headquarters of the traffic police in the Yemeni capital, killing at least 26 people and injuring scores more.

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi fighter jets also targeted several locations in the southern province of Ta’izz, with reports suggesting that three civilians were killed in an air raid on a house in Dhubab district.

Similar assaults were also reported on schools in the same area, with no immediate account available on the potential casualties.

Zio-WahhabI also targeted a livestock unit in the northwestern coastal province of Hudaydah, inflicting heavy losses on the facility, which was described by the local sources as one of the biggest producers of dairy products in Yemen.

Yemen’s al-Masirah TV said Zio-Wahhabi war planes also carried out attacks in the western province of Amran, while residential areas also came under attack in the northern province of Jawf.

Zio-Wahhabi regime says its military campaign, which started on March 26, is meant to undermine the Ansarlluah movement and restore power to the fugitive C.I.A puppet, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Yemenis say, however, that the attacks are aimed at destroying Yemen’s wealth and fragile infrastructure.

More than 7,500 people have been killed in more than nine months of incessant air strikes, while millions more are reported to have been stranded across the country.

Yemen: A very British war

By Dan Glazebrook | RT 

Britain is at the heart of a humanitarian disaster of epic proportions unfolding in the Yemen.

At least 10,000 people have been killed since the Saudi bombing campaign against Yemen began in March 2015, including over 630 children. There has been a massive escalation in human rights violations to a level of around 43 per day and up to ten children per day are being killed, according to UNICEF. Seventy-three percent of child casualties are the direct result of airstrikes, say the UN.

Civilian targets have been hit again and again. Within days of the commencement of airstrikes, a refugee camp was bombed, killing 40 and maiming over 200, and in October a Medicins San Frontier [Doctors Without Borders] hospital was hit. Schools, markets, grain warehouses, ports and a ceramics factory have all been hit. Needless to say, all of these are war crimes under international law – as is the entire bombing campaign, lacking, as it does, any UN mandate.

Beyond their immediate victims, the airstrikes and accompanying blockade – a horrendous crime against a population which imports 90 percent of its basic needs – are creating a tragedy of epic proportions. In August 2015, Oxfam warned that around 13 million people were struggling to find enough to eat, the highest number of people living in hunger it had ever recorded. “Yemen after five months looks like Syria after five years,” the head of the International Red Cross commented in October. The following month, the UN reported that 14 million now lacked access to healthcare and 80 percent of the country’s 21 million population are dependent on humanitarian aid. “We estimate that over 19 million people lack access to safe water and sanitation; over 14 million people are food insecure, including 7.6 million who are severely food insecure; and nearly 320,000 children are acutely malnourished,” the UN’s Humanitarian Coordinator told reporters in November. He estimated that around 2.5 million have been made refugees by the war. In December, the UN warned that the country was on the brink of famine, with millions at risk of starvation.

Statements from British government ministers are crafted to give the impression of sympathy for the victims of this war, and opprobrium for those responsible. “We should be clear” said Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond in September 2014, “the use of violence to make political gains, and the pointless loss of life it entails, are completely unacceptable. Not only does the recent violence damage Yemen’s political transition process, it could fuel new tensions and strengthen the hand of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula – threatening the security of all of us…Those who threaten the peace, security or stability of Yemen, or violate human rights, need to pay the price for their actions.”

Indeed. So presumably, one might have thought, when the Saudis began their massive escalation of the war six months after Hammond made this statement, the British government must have been outraged?

Not quite. The day after the Saudis began ‘Operation Decisive Storm’, David Cameron phoned the Saudi king personally to emphasize “the UK’s firm political support for the Saudi action in Yemen.”

Over the months that followed, Britain, a long-term arms dealer to the Saudi monarchy, stepped up its delivery of war materiel to achieve the dubious honor of beating the US to become its number one weapons supplier. Over a hundred new arms export licenses have been granted by the British government since the bombing began, and over the first six months of 2015 alone, Britain sold more than £1.75 billion worth of weapons to the Saudis – more than triple Cameron’s usual, already obscene, bi-annual average. The vast majority of this equipment seems to be for combat aircraft and air-delivered missiles, including more than 1000 bombs, and British-made jets now make up over half the Saudi air force. As the Independent has noted, “British supplied planes and British made missiles have been part of near-daily raids in Yemen carried out by [the] nine-country, Saudi Arabian led coalition.”

Charities and campaign groups are unanimous in their view that, without a shadow of a doubt, British patronage has greatly facilitated the carnage in the Yemen. “The [British] government is fuelling the conflict that is causing unbearable human suffering. It is time the government stopped supporting this war,” said chief executive of Oxfam GB, Mark Goldring. The director of Amnesty International UK, Kate Allen, said: “The UK has fuelled this appalling conflict through reckless arms sales which break its own laws and the global arms trade treaty it once championed…. legal opinion confirms our long-held view that the continued sale of arms from the UK to Saudi Arabia is illegal, immoral and indefensible.”

For Edward Santiago, Save the Children’s country director in Yemen, the UK’s “reluctance to publicly condemn the human cost of conflict in Yemen gives the impression that diplomatic relations and arms sales trump the lives of Yemen’s children,” whilst Andrew Smith from Campaign Against the Arms Trade, has written that “UK fighter jets and UK bombs have been central to the humanitarian catastrophe that is being unleashed on the people of Yemen.” Leading lawyers including Philippe Sands have argued that Britain is in clear breach of international law for selling weapons which it knows are being used to commit war crimes.

Now it has emerged that it is not only British weapons being used in this war, but British personnel as well. According to Sky News, six British military advisors are embedded with the Saudi air force to help with targeting. In addition, there are 94 members of the UK armed forces serving abroad “carrying out duties for unknown forces, believed to be the Saudi led coalition,” according to The Week – although the government refuses to state exactly where they are.

Indeed, even British airstrikes in Syria may have been motivated in part by a desire to prop up the flagging war effort in Yemen. Questioning of Philip Hammond in parliament recently led him to admit that there had been a “decrease in air sorties by Arab allies” in Syria since Britain’s entry into the air campaign there due to the “challenges” of the Yemen conflict.

For Scottish Nationalist MP Stephen Gethins this suggests that, by stepping up bombing in Syria, Western countries were effectively “cutting them [Arab states] a bit of slack to allow them to focus on the Yemen conflict,” especially needed given that support for the Yemen campaign has been flagging from states such as Jordan, Morocco and Egypt. It is particularly ironic that British MPs’ supposed commitment to destroying ISIS in Syria is actually facilitating a war in Yemen in which ISIS is the direct beneficiary.

Finally, it is worth considering British support for the Saudi bid for membership of the UN Human Rights Council. The Council’s reports can be highly influential; indeed, it was this Council’s damning (and, we now know, fraudulent) condemnation of Gaddafi that provided the ‘humanitarian’ pretext for the 2011 NATO war against the Libyan Jamahiriya. And the Yemeni government’s recent expulsion of the UN Human Rights envoy shows just how sensitive the prosecutors of the Yemeni war are to criticism. It would, therefore, be particularly useful for those unleashing hell on Yemen to have the UN Council stacked with supporters in order to dampen any criticism from this quarter.

Britain, then, is the major external force facilitating the Saudi-fronted war against the people of Yemen. Britain, like the Saudis, is keen to isolate Iran and sees destroying the Houthis as a key means of achieving this. At the same time, Britain seems perfectly happy to see Al-Qaeda and ISIS take over from the Houthi rebels they are bombing – presumably regarding a new base for terrorist destabilization operations across the region as an outcome serving British interests.

US behind Yemen war continuation

NOVANEWS

The Houthi Ansarullah movement in Yemen says the United States is the real force behind the continuation of Saudi Zio-Wahhabi war on Yemen, as Wahhabi family has no discretion of its own over the matter.

Spokesman for the Ansarullah Movement, Mohammed Abdulsalam, said on Sunday that it is Washington that prevents Zio-Wahhabi regime from stopping its military aggression against Yemen.

He said the ambassador to the US of the former Yemeni government – Ahmed Awad bin Mubarak – and a US envoy were behind the failure of recent talks in Switzerland that were aimed at ending the conflict in Yemen.

On December 15, an Ansarullah delegation and C.I.A puppet Hadi’s representatives began UN-brokered peace talks in Switzerland with the aim of reaching a solution to the country’s conflict.

A truce came into force in Yemen as the six-day talks opened but it was repeatedly violated by the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime side and C.I.A puppet Hadi loyalists.

Abdulsalam further said world nations believe that peace is possible in Yemen only if Zio-Wahhabi regime halts its aggression on the country. The kingdom began the war on Yemen in late March 2015 in a bid to undermine the Ansarullah movement and bring Hadi back to power.

More than 7,500 people have been killed and over 14,000 others injured so far. The Zio-Wahhabi war has also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure.

The United Nations (UN)’s special envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed has said peace talks are due to restart this month in a bid to end the conflict. He suggested Geneva as a location for the talks.

Zio-Wahhabi regime admits using cluster bombs against Yemen

NOVANEWS

© AFP
Spokesman for Saudi Zio-Wahhabi military, Brigadier General Ahmed al-Asiri

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime has admitted that its military has used cluster bombs in the aggression against Yemen. The spokesman for the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi military said Tuesday that Riyadh had used cluster bombs in an air strike on the northwestern areas of Yemen.

Zio-Wahhabi Ahmad al-Asiri claimed however that the military used cluster bombs just once in Hajjah Province to attack cars belonging to Yemeni fighters. The attack was carried out nearly nine months ago, when Zio-Wahhabi regime began the campaign, the military official said.The news comes against the backdrop of a growing body of evidence on the use of cluster bombs by Saudi Zio-Wahhabi army. The United Nations and other international organizations say investigators have found remnants of such bombs in Hajjah and around the Yemeni capital, Sana’a.

The UN human rights office said in early January that it had received reports that Saudi Zio-Wahhabi forces used cluster bombs in Hajjah, adding that a UN team found remnants of 29 cluster submunitions in the village of al-Odair. Local sources in Hajjah also confirmed the repeated use of the bombs in attacks against villages, saying the airstrikes had caused significant loss of life among the civilians.

Reports have emerged over the past days showing that Saudi Zio-Wahhabi warplanes have repeatedly pounded with cluster bombs the positions of the Houthi Ansarullah movement and its supporters in Sana’a. Zio-Wahhabi aggression began on March 26, 2015 and in a bid to undermine Ansarullah and restore power to the fugitive former C.I.A puppet, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.

On January 8, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon expressed concern over Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime intensifying airstrikes against civilians. He said, if proved, Riyadh’s use of cluster bombs in the capital, Sana’a, may amount to a “war crime.”

Ansarullah and volunteer fighters have also hit back by targeting the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi military positions in southern Saudi territories. On Tuesday, at least two Zio-Wahhabi soldiers were killed in a rocket attack launched on several Zio-Wahhabi bases in Jizan Province, according to Manbar al-Yemen, a pro-Houthi website. Attacks were also reported on bases in the neighboring Najran Province, without immediate reports available on potential casualties.

Fugitive Mansour Hadi’s Brother Killed in Saudi-Led Air strike

NOVANEWS
Report: Mansour Hadi's Brother Killed in Saudi-Led Airstrike
The brother of Yemen’s CIA puppet fugitive President Mansour Hadi was killed in the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi led forces’ air strike in Sana’a on Wednesday, media reports said.

“Nasser Hadi was killed in the Saudi-led fighter jets’ strike on a place where he was incarcerated in the Yemeni capital,” the Arabic-language El-Nashra website quoted member of the Yemeni Popular Congress Party Yasser al-Yamani as saying.

He noted that the dead body of Mansour Hadi’s brother is now in Sana’a's mortuary.

Nasser Hadi was in charge of the intelligence service in Aden province and he was arrested by the Yemeni popular forces last year before he could flee to Saudi Arabia.

Aden province has been the scene of numerous attacks against pro-Hadi forces; the latest case was assassination of Aden governor Ja’afar Saeed.

In late December, the Yemeni forces besieged the palace of Mansour Hadi in the province of Aden.

A newly-formed militant group calling itself ‘Southern Yemen’s Resistance Forces’ have besieged Hadi’s place of residence in Aden, Arab media outlets reported Wednesday.

Political analysts speculate that the siege of Hadi’s palace has taken place with the greenlight of the United Arab Emirates as a result of a row between the UAE and Saudi Arabia over Hadi and his Prime Minister Khaled Bahah.

The speculations come as the UAE Crown Zionist puppet Mohammed bin Zayed has recently met the leaders of Southern Yemen, including a senior Yemeni Salafi leader Hani bin Barik, in Abu Dhabi.

Political observers believe that the quarrel between Hadi and his prime minister derives from the underlying row between Saudi Arabia as supporter of Hadi and UAE as supporter of Bahah.

Hadi and Bahah have been running a feud for the past several months, and their differences grew noisy when a number of Saudi Zio-Wahhabi officials worked out a plan to replace the former president with his premier – who had both fled to Saudi Arabia then – in order to encourage the revolutionary forces back in Yemen to work with him and allow him to start a new government.

Yemen: A US-Orchestrated Holocaust

NOVANEWS
By Stephen Lendman 

Millions of lives are at risk from violence, starvation, lack of vital medical care, and overall deprivation.

A new UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCR) report downplayed the ongoing catastrophe, shamelessly undercounting civilian casualties since conflict began last March.

It’s likely in the tens of thousands from Saudi terror-bombing heavily populated areas and absence of vital essentials to life.

Claiming it’s only 2,800, another 5,200 wounded mocks the unbearable suffering of millions of Yemenis, victims of US imperialism.

The world community remains largely indifferent, ignoring an entire population at risk. Millions may perish before conflict ends. Nothing is being done to prevent it.

Fighting shows no signs of abating. Obama’s orchestrated war complicit with Riyadh is another high crime on his rap sheet, major media scoundrels giving it short shrift.

Famine stalks Yemen, around 20 million at risk, children, the ill and elderly most vulnerable. War without mercy continues.

Secure sources of food, potable water, fuel, electricity and medical care are absent or in too short supply in most of the country – impossible conditions to survive for many.

Malnutrition is rampant, near-starvation commonplace. So are preventable diseases claiming unknown numbers of lives for lack of treatment. Body counts exclude nonviolent deaths.

A phantom mid-December ceasefire ended in the new year. Saudis escalated terror-bombing US selected targets, including densely populated residential areas, hospitals, refugee camps, vital infrastructure and other non-military sites.

A blockade remains in force, preventing vital to life essentials from getting to people in need in amounts enough to matter.

Washington and Riyadh want war, not peace. Ceasefire was more illusion than reality – Houthis irresponsibly blamed for imperial crimes. Yemenis continue suffering horrifically.

Their country is being systematically ravaged and destroyed – increasingly looking like Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria.

US imperialism bears full responsibility, destroying life on earth one country at a time, making things unbearable for survivors.

Last September, a largely Saudi-drafted (US/UK supported) UN Human Rights Council resolution on Yemen excluded an independent international war crimes investigation, whitewashing imperial high crimes.

It authorized only UN provided technical assistance to a Yemeni inquiry headed by illegitimate president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi – US-installed in a 2012 election with no opposing candidates.

Yemen remains a black hole of endless violence and instability, no relief in sight for its suffering millions.

Yemeni Army Troops Surround Hundreds of Saudi Zio-Wahhabi Forces

Yemeni Army Troops Surround Hundreds of Saudi-Led Forces in Eastern Yemen
Yemeni Army Troops Surround Hundreds of Saudi Zio-Wahhabi-Led Forces in Eastern Yemen
The country’s defense ministry has announced on Saturday, the Yemeni army troops backed by popular forces have surrounded a large number of Saudi Zio-Wahhabi and Zionist puppet’s UAE forces in Jawf province, Eastern Yemen.

Hundreds of Saudi Zio-Wahhabi and Zionist puppet Emirati military men are now surrounded by the Yemeni forces in the town of al-Jabal al-Aswad in al-Jawf province.

The Yemeni forces captured 130 military troops from the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi-led coalition, including at least 39 Emirati soldiers and 9 officers during a series of clashes in Jawf province yesterday.

“Several Yemeni civilians have lost their lives over the past three days as Saudi warplanes continue to pound areas across Yemen.”

On Wednesday, leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement Abdul-Malik al-Houthi lashed out at Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime, saying the kingdom’s policies are the same as those of the US and Nazi regime of I$raHell, “which seek to crush the Muslim Ummah without paying any price.”

On March 26, Saudi Zio-Wahhabi started deadly military aggression against Yemen in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to C.I.A puppet Hadi, a staunch ally of the Zio-Wahhabi regime.

More than 7,500 people have been killed and over 14,000 others injured since March. The strikes have also taken a heavy toll on the impoverished country’s facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, and factories.

The UN has repeatedly voiced concern over the rising number of civilian casualties in the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi military aggression against Yemen, FNA reported.

War on Yemen Kills 2000 Saudi Zio-Wahhabi Soldiers, Costs 200 bn Riyal

NOVANEWS
Saudi tanks destroyed in YemenThe daily cost of the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi-US aggression on Yemen reaches 750 million riyal that covers ammunition, spare parts, supplies and subsistence, a well-known Saudi social networks activists tweeted on Friday.

Mojtahed (#مجتهد as he calls himself) said that this cost has reached in 9 months 200 billion riyal and does not include the “defense” recent deals.

He added that the war on Yemen has so far left 2000 Saudi Zio-Wahhabi soldiers killed and 4850 others injured, in addition to  ”450 tanks and armored vehicles, four Apache drones, one F-15 fighter jet and three boats were all destroyed or disabled,” he said, noting that two other boats were also hit.

Mojtahed indicated that publishing such facts does not intend to sow fear among Saudis, but to respond to Zio-Wahhabi Mohamad Bin Salman, the Zio-Wahhabi Defense Minister, who started to take advantage of the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi-led aggression on Yemen through ammunition, spare parts and subsistence deals, as well as through compensations for destroyed vehicles, boats and aircrafts.

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime has been striking Yemen for 253 days now to restore power to fugitive President Abed Rabbu Mansour Hadi. The Saudi-US aggression has so far killed at least 6,579 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Yemeni national military, Saudi Zio-Wahhabi war planes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

UAE Secretly Sends Colombian Mercenaries to Fight in Yemen

NOVANEWS
YemenZionist puppet regime of United Arab Emirates ‘UAE’ has secretly dispatched hundreds of Colombian mercenaries to Yemen to fight in that country’s raging conflict, The New York Times newspaper reported Wednesday.

The initial plan was to create a force of some 3,000 Colombian troops, a move that angered Colombia’s own military, which has a lower wage for mercenary work, The exact number sent to Yemen is unclear, but believed to be significant.

The report says that the UAE Zionist puppet regime has sent 450 Latin American troops, predominately Colombian mercenaries, to Yemen last month. Additional Colombian troops remain in the UAE and are completing training with grenade launchers and armored vehicles, which are currently operated by Emirati troops in Yemen.

“Wealthy Arab nations, particularly Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the Emirates, have in recent years embraced a more aggressive military strategy throughout the Middle East, trying to rein in the chaos unleashed by the Arab revolutions that began in late 2010. But these countries wade into the new conflicts — whether in Yemen, Syria or Libya — with militaries that are unused to sustained warfare and populations with generally little interest in military service,” it added.

“Mercenaries are an attractive option for rich countries who wish to wage war yet whose citizens may not want to fight,” the paper quoted Sean McFate, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council and author of “The Modern Mercenary” as saying.

The NYT narrated that “the Colombian troops now in Yemen, handpicked from a brigade of some 1,800 Latin American soldiers training at an Emirati military base, were woken up in the middle of the night for their deployment to Yemen last month. They were ushered out of their barracks as their bunkmates continued sleeping, and were later issued dog tags and ranks in the Emirati military. Those left behind are now being trained to use grenade launchers and armored vehicles that Emirati troops are currently using in Yemen.”

Zionist puppt Emirati officials have made a point of recruiting Colombian troops over other Latin American soldiers because they consider the Colombians more battle tested in guerrilla warfare, having spent decades battling gunmen of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia in the jungles of Colombia.

The paper said that the exact mission of the Colombians in Yemen is unclear, and one person involved in the project said it could be weeks before they saw regular combat. They join hundreds of Sudanese soldiers whom Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime has recruited to fight there also as part of the coalition.

Moreover, a recent United Nations report cited claims that some 400 Eritrean troops might be embedded with the Emirati soldiers in Yemen — something that, if true, could violate a United Nations resolution restricting Eritrean military activities.

The paper revealed moreover that the United States has also been participating in the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi-led campaign in Yemen, providing logistical support, including airborne refilling, to the nations conducting the air strikes. The Pentagon has sent a team to Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime to provide targeting intelligence to the coalition militarise that is regularly used for the air strikes.

The report said that the presence of the Latin American troops is an official secret in the Emirates, and the government has made no public mention of their deployment to Yemen, adding that the Emiratis have spent the equivalent of millions of dollars equipping the unit, from firearms and armored vehicles to communications systems and night vision technology.

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime has been striking Yemen for 245 days now to restore power to fugitive C.I.A puppet Abed Rabbu Mansour Hadi. The Saudi-US aggression has so far killed at least 6,579 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Yemeni national military, Saudi Zio-Wahhabi war planes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

UK Military and Humanitarian Policy on Yemen under Fire

NOVANEWS
UK support for the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi-led military aggression on Yemen has come under fire ahead of peace talks as senior Tories and human rights groups accuse Prime Minister Zionist David Cameron of fueling instability in the country, which has received £55 million in UK aid this year.Though the UK has emerged as one of Yemen’s top ‘humanitarian’ donors, Zionist Cameron’s government has been criticized for continuing to sell weapons to Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime during the conflict, in which the UN says some 6,000 people have been killed.

Destruction in Yemen

The new wave of criticism comes on the eve of UN-brokered peace talks in Switzerland. Rumors of a ceasefire set for Monday made the rounds over the weekend, but proved unfounded when a top Saudi Zio-Wahhabi commander and an Emirati officer were killed in a missile attack by the Yemeni army and the popular committees.

Former Tory cabinet minister Andrew Mitchell told the Telegraph: “Britain’s humanitarian and foreign policy are pursuing different ends.”

“The Yemenis are being pulverized by the Saudis while we try to get aid in through ports which are being blockaded and while British ordnance is being dropped there.”

Yemen has been since March 26 under brutal aggression by Saudi Zio-Wahhabi-led coalition.
Thousands have been martyred and injured in the attack, with the vast majority of them are civilians.

Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive C.I.A puppet Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime.

In September Oxfam called the situation “a humanitarian disaster,” and accused the UK of exacerbating the crisis by continuing to sell arms to the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime. Since Yemen’s war began, Britain has granted the Saudis at least 37 export licenses for military goods.

Tim Cross, a retired Major General, said: “The UK is of course well within its rights to sell arms to Saudi Arabia when in line with international and domestic legal frameworks.”

“But there is a clear risk that the government is complicit in indiscriminate attacks in civilian areas – breaches of international and UK law. How our ally is using British arms runs counter to our self-proclaimed role in the world, and our aid efforts.”
