Hundreds of Yemeni Tribesmen Join Ansarullah Aden
Hundreds of Yemeni tribesmen have joined the country’s army and revolutionary forces in the city of Aden, Southern Yemen, a senior Ansarullah leader announced on Sunday.

“An army of Yemeni tribesmen have arrived in Aden to support the army and popular forces,” Hossein al-Houthi, member of Ansarullah Movement’s political council, told FNA on Sunday.

Al-Houthi reiterated that the Yemeni army, Ansarullah fighters and tribal forces will push back the pro-Hadi and al-Qaeda terrorists from Aden in the coming days.

In April, 300 Saudi soldiers and an artillery commander joined the Yemeni forces.

“The latest blow at the Zio-Wahhabi Al Saud came as Hashem al-Ahmar, artillery commander of the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi army in al-Wadia border crossing and 300 soldiers joined the Yemeni army and the revolutionary forces,” the Middle East Panorama website quoted Head of Yemen’s Free Army Nasser bin Yahya al-Orujli as saying.

He noted that the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime is still in a difficult situation and the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi officials know it quite well.

Saudi Arabia’s Jets Continue to Pound Yemeni Civilians
Saudi Zio-Wahhabi Jets Continue to Pound Yemeni Civilians
Saudi Zio-Wahhabi has continued bombarding several areas in Yemen, killing at least 13 people across the impoverished country, Al-Alam News Network reports.

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi war planes conducted a bomb attack against the city of Ibb in southwestern Yemen, killing at least two people and injuring two others.

At least five people, including two physicians, lost their lives in Saudi Zio-Wahhabi  air strikes against a medical centre and a school in the Hays district in the western Yemeni province of al-Hudaydah on Friday.

According to Yemen’s al-Masirah television network, two civilians were killed and four injured in a Saudi Zio-Wahhabi attack on a residential area in the town of Razeh in the northwestern Yemeni province of Sa’ada.

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi fighter jets also carried out several air raids in Baqim district in Yemen’s mountainous and northwestern Sa’ada province, killing at least two people and wounding many others.

Meanwhile, two civilians were killed and four others injured in Saudi Zio-i  air strikes against the southwestern Yemeni province of Ta’iz.

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi war planes also conducted over 10 air raids in the northwestern Hajjah Province and 15 attacks against two military bases in the province of Ibb.

On March 26, Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime began its military aggression against Yemen – without a UN mandate – in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to Hadi, an ally of Riyadh.

According to the United Nations, the war on Yemen has killed some 4,000 people, nearly half of them civilians, since late March. Local Yemeni sources, however, put the fatality figure at a much higher number.

Yemen: US-Backed Zio-Wahhabi Coalition Recklessly Killing Civilians

NOVANEWS

US Mainstream Media Nowhere to Be Seen

Five months ago, a Saudi-led coalition of Gulf nations began a bombing campaign in Yemen. Backed by the U.S. government through verbal support and military weapons, the Saudi coalition has recklessly killed civilians, ordered an economic blockade that refuses to allow basic necessities into an already-poor country, and it fails to uphold ceasefire agreements time and again.

As an organization committed to speaking out against reckless US militarism, this aggression against Yemen is a prime example of how the US perpetuates war without having soldiers on the ground or leading the charge. The mainstream media has also continually covered the ongoing violence of ISIS against civilians, ultimately helping the expanding breadth and power of US military involvement in the region. In the case of Yemen, however, US mainstream media is nowhere to be seen despite US involvement, the high civilian death toll and humanitarian crisis now plaguing the country.

Help us stand against this aggression on Yemeni civilians. 

In the past two weeks alone, 202 civilians have been killed in Yemen, bringing the number of civilian Yemeni deaths to 1,895 according to the UN. Many of these deaths are due to the use of US-made cluster munitions, which have been banned by over a hundred countries. The United States, which has yet to sign on to the ban, continues to create, use, and sell cluster munitions despite the overwhelming evidence that they directly harm and increase the civilian death toll [1].

Despite the high civilian death toll due to the bombing campaign, Yemen was an already-poor country with millions of Yemenis who were food insecure. Since the bombing, the UN estimates that the original number has almost doubled, leaving 80 percent of of the population, or 21 million Yemenis, in need of basic assistance [2]. The severe food insecurity is only being escalated by the blockade and bombings by Saudi Arabia and its allies, leaving millions to an unprecedented humanitarian crisis.

Will you join us in stopping the Saudi attack on Yemen? 

This increased lack of regard for human life and an adoption of the rhetoric of the “War on Terror” by the Saudi coalition only serves to upend an already unstable region. As the US now wages proxy wars through support of allies like Saudi Arabia and the mainstream media continues to ignore this impending crisis, it is more important than ever to focus on how the US military industrial complex continues to impact civilians around the world. And we intend to keep up that conversation and pressure and we know you will be with there with us.

In solidarity,

Ansarullah: Fugitive Mansour Hadi Has No Value for Saudi Arabia

Ansarullah: Fugitive Mansour Hadi Has No Value for Saudi Arabia
Ansarullah: Fugitive Mansour Hadi Has No Value for Saudi Arabia
The leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah movement described Riyadh’s pretext to attack Yemen as baseless, saying that Saudis attach no value to the former Yemeni President Mansour Hadi, Al-Alam News Network reports.

On March 26, Saudi Zio-Wahhabi and some of its Arab allies began to launch deadly air strikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to the fugitive C.I.A puppet Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Saudi Zio-Wahhabi.

Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said in a Sunday address that Hadi and his resigned cabinet are all hired by Saudi princes and are of no value to them.

“They are commodities purchased with money. Saudis have bought them and are taking advantage of them to reach their goals,” he added.

“Saudis well know that Mansour Hadi has no legitimacy in Yemen,” Houthi emphasized, Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network reported.

He also warned Saudi Zio-Wahhabi of the repercussions of their aggression, saying, “We would sacrifice anything, even our lives, to be free and independent.”

“We would never surrender to anyone but the great Allah,” he stressed, adding that Yemenis should pay the price for their freedom.

According to Yemen’s Freedom House Foundation, the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi air strikes have claimed the lives of nearly 4,000 Yemeni people so far while more than 7,000 others have been wounded, most of them civilians.

US Arms Sales to Saudi Zio-Wahhabi Contributing to Conflict in Yemen

WASHINGTON — The United States’ weapons and logistical support for Saudi Arabia’s military campaign in Yemen signals that Washington is backing Riyadh’s goal to crush Houthi rebels despite UN calls for a political solution, experts told Sputnik on Friday.

The United States is providing intelligence and refueling support to enable a four-month-old Saudi-led air campaign against Houthi rebels and allied forces.

On Thursday, Washington decided to provide Riyadh with $500 million in ammunition to replenish stocks used up in the campaign.

“The Saudis want an extended war that leads to a Houthi defeat, and the United States is effectively backing that strategy with the arms deal,” Charles Schmitz, a specialist on Yemen at the Middle East Institute told Sputnik.

“The Saudis don’t want a political settlement; they want a Houthi surrender,” he added.

This week’s $500 million weapons deal, which includes ammunition, tracers, artillery shells and mines, is meant to resupply the Saudi military in its campaign against Houthi rebels, according to the State Department.

The sale was approved as Saudi Arabia has come under criticism for human rights abuses and violations of the international law of war by targeting and killing civilians in Yemen.

The conflict has claimed the lives of at least 1,900 civilians and has injured more than 4,000, according to the UN, while leaving 80 percent of the country in need of humanitarian assistance.

“The new sale by the United States of $500 million of munitions to Saudi Arabia is yet another example of how America is actually an active combatant in the Saudi war on the people of Yemen,” Haykal Bafana, Managing Director of Bafana Advisory, told Sputnik fromSana.

“Whether the US munitions are distributed by Riyadh for use by its Yemeni proxy forces or by the Kingdom [of Saudi Arabia] itself, the effect is similar: the United States is contributing actively to the deaths of more Yemenis,” Bafana added.

The multi-front war in Yemen pits Houthi rebels and loyalists of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh against ousted President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi’s Sunni forces, tribes and south Yemen secessionists based in Aden.

Al-Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula and the ISIL have also taken advantage of the situation to strengthen their hold in Yemen.

Saudi trained Yemeni proxies loyal to former president Hadi have recently pushed Houthi forces from Aden as several humanitarian ceasefires and political talks have broken-down.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has delayed a pledge to provide $274 million in humanitarian aid to Yemen as the UN and Riyadh discuss the terms of the assistance, the UN’s humanitarian chief said this week.

ZiO-Wahhabi Attack to Mokha in Yemen by HRW

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi Attack to Mokha in Yemen by HRW
Human Rights Watch condemned as an “apparent war crime” on Tuesday a Saudi Zio-Wahhabi led air raid in Yemen last week that it said killed at least 65 civilians in residential compounds.

Saudi Zio-Wahhabi led coalition air strikes hit a residential area in a quiet Red Sea town in Yemen, killing at least 120 civilian injuring 150, in the deadliest strike against civilians since the March war began.

The airstrikes in past late Friday hit workers’ housing for a power plant in Mokha, flattening some of the buildings to the ground, the officials said.

A fire erupted in the area, charring many of the corpses, including children, women and elderly people, security and medical officials said.

The New York-based watchdog charged that the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi led coalition had failed to investigate alleged breaches of the rules of war during the bombing campaign it launched against Yemeni people in March and called for a UN probe.

It said that 10 children were among the dead in Friday’s strikes in the Red Sea port of Mokha.

Coalition warplanes repeatedly struck two compounds housing the families of workers at the Mokha Steam Power Plant, it added.

“With no evident military target, this attack appears to be a war crime,” said the watchdog’s senior emergencies researcher, Ole Solvang.

HRW called for a UN probe into allegations against coalition and loyalists of the exiled government it is seeking to restore to power.

“The failure of Saudi Arabia and other coalition members to investigate apparently unlawful air strikes in Yemen demonstrates the need for the United Nations Human Rights Council to create a commission of inquiry,” it said.

The United Nations says the conflict has killed more than 3,640 people since late March.

On Monday, the coalition began a five-day pause in its bombing campaign to allow delivery of desperately needed relief supplies, But the International Committee of the Red Cross has warned that five days are not enough to cover the needs.

THE YEHUDI ARABIA ‘WAR’ IN YEMEN: 6 MILLION FACE STARVATION

NOVANEWS

Heartbreaking images reveal the human face of hunger in Yemen: SIX MILLION people are on the brink of starvation as war ravages the desperate country

  • C.I.A puppet Abd-Rabby Mansour Hadi fled Yemen in February 2012
  • Forces loyal to the exiled president have since been fighting Houthi rebels
  • Blockades on port are plunging the country’s population into a food crisis
  • 13million people are now hungry yet the sides refuse effective ceasefires 

These heartbreaking pictures reveal the true face of a civil war that has put six million people on the brink of starvation in Yemen.

Thousands have been killed in the battles between Houthi rebels and forces loyal to C.I.A puppet  an Abd-Rabby Mansour Hadi, who fled the troubled country in February 2012.

But Oxfam today warned of the pressure blockades on imports are putting on the population, forcing an additional 25,000 people into hunger every day.

Half of the country’s 26 million population are now struggling to eat, according to Oxfam, as the war in the country rages on. 

Oxfam’s Yemen country director Philippe Clerc said: ‘As the warring parties continue to ignore calls for a ceasefire, the average family in Yemen is left wondering when their next meal will be.’

Nearly 4,000 people have been killed and more than 1.2 million displaced in the conflict so far.

The United Nations say that four fifths of the population need help.

As well as the six million starving people, Oxfam believes 12.9 million are hungry.

That number has risen by 2.3 million since March, when Zio-Wahhabi led coalition backing C.I.A puppet Hadi began bombarding the Houthis and imposed a blockade to cut off arms supplies.

‘In a country that has historically faced food shortages, this is the highest ever recorded number of people living in hunger,’ Oxfam said in a statement.

It said the blockade had exacerbated the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, which imports up to 90 percent of its food and the majority of its fuel.

U.N. humanitarian coordinator for Yemen Johannes van der Klaauw said more than 6 million people were in an emergency food situation – the phase before famine on the internationally used food security scale.

He added: ‘The food situation in many governorates including Aden is very critical, but we’re not at the stage of famine.

‘In some governorates the level of criticality is such that the next level would be famine, but we’re not there and let’s hope we do not get there.’

Van der Klaauw, who visited Aden at the weekend, said the United Nations hoped to scale up aid to the port city now that fighting had moved north.

Some markets in the city are still functioning, he added.

The Arab coalition announced a five-day truce from late on Sunday to allow in emergency aid, but fighting has continued in some places.

Oxfam said Saada governorate in the north was the worst affected by food shortages, with nearly four in five people going hungry and half at a critical level.

In neighbouring Hajjah governorate families uprooted by the wars are having to sell livestock at well below market value to buy food, Oxfam said.

Some displaced families in Sanaa have resorted to begging.

The World Health Organization said on Tuesday that 3,984 people had died and 19,347 had been injured between March 19 and July 19, according to data from health facilities.

It also recorded an upsurge in cases of dengue fever in Yemen, with nearly 5,700 suspected cases reported since March, around half of them in Aden.

Saudi Wahhabi Regime to Pay for Crimes in Yemen

NOVANEWS
Iran's Judiciary Chief: Saudi Regime to Pay for Crimes in Yemen
Iranian Judiciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Larijani strongly condemned the Zio-Wahhabi regime’s massacre of the Yemeni people, and said that the Riyadh government will surely pay a heavy price for its crimes in Yemen.

“The Saudis must know that they should be accountable for their crimes sooner or later; it is not so that if they launch air strikes for a while it will always remain the same,” Amoli Larijani said, addressing a weekly meeting of high-ranking judiciary officials in Tehran on Sunday.

He blasted Riyadh officials for their fledgling moves and policies, saying that the Zio-Wahhabi regime imagined that they could seize Yemen in six days, but they failed.

“The Saudis should stop making mistakes and abandon their crimes against humanity,” Iran’s judiciary chief added.

Earlier today, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham censured Saudi Zio-Wahhabi bombardment of residential areas in Yemen, and asked international organizations, specifically the United Nations (UN), to take urgent steps to back the Yemeni civilians against these attacks.

Afkham rapped the Saudi Zio-Wahhabi air strikes on residential areas in Yemen’s Ta’iz which resulted in the death and injury of 130 civilians, and said that “air strikes on residential areas and killing innocent people, especially women and children, is a violation of the international principles of the international law.”

“Unceasing strikes on Yemen will fuel extremism and increase activities of terroristic groups such as the al-Qaeda,” she said.

IsraHell and Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime has been striking Yemen for 123 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

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

Despite Zio-Wahhabi claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi Zio-Wahhabi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.

The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 5,310 civilians, mostly women and children.

US to sell Zio-Wahhabi 355 missiles amid war on Yemen

NOVANEWS

Image result for YEMEN WAR PHOTO

The US Defense Department has awarded major weapons maker Raytheon to provide Zio-Wahhabi regime with 355 air-to-ground missiles amid its persisting campaign of aerial strikes against civilian and economic targets in neighbouring Yemen.

According to a Pentagon announcement cited Saturday by the Russia-based Sputnik News, in a $180-million contract assigned to the arms manufacturer, Raytheon is to deliver the AGM-154 series missiles to the Zio-Wahhabi regime in a move clearly regarded as a bid to support  I$raHell and Zio-Wahhabi regime aerial strikes against Yemen.

The AGM-154 is described as a Global Positioning System and infra-red guided air-to-ground missile with stand-off capability.

The contract, the report adds, also includes the delivery of 200 AGM-154C-1 missiles to the US Navy.

Washington, the report adds, has justified the missile sales to Riyadh as part of an agreement by C.I.A puppet Arab dictatorships to expand their military cooperation with Washington amid “concerns” over the recent nuclear talks conclusion with Iran as well as the Islamic Republic’s persisting influence as a major power and the most stable nation in the strategic region.

Meanwhile, the oil-rich Saudi Zio-Wahhabi Kingdom, widely regarded as a US client in the Persian Gulf region, has been among the world’s largest importers of lethal weaponry over the years and has significantly expanded its purchase of armaments in recent months, becoming the world’s top importer in 2015 so far.

This is while Riyadh signed major arms deals worth billions of dollars with France last month for the purchase of patrol ships, border guard helicopters and aircraft as it escalated its war effort against Yemen.

The announcement of the deals came during a visit by Saudi Zio-Wahhabi Deputy Crown Prince and Defence Minister Zionist puppet Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud to Paris.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius defended the selling of French patrol boats to Riyadh, claiming that they are meant “to enhance the capability of the Saudi Coast Guard, which is today facing growing threats.”

Zio-Wahhabi has been carrying out air strikes against Yemen since March 26 without a UN mandate. The strikes are meant to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to fugitive C.I.A puppet Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of the Zio-Wahhabi regime.

Thousands have been killed and at least 11,000 more injured in the airstrikes.
