    Tehran tries to reconcile its allies in Yemen

    As the Intelligence online bulletin says in a publication titled "Teherean tente de sauver l'unite entre ses allies a Saana, menace par les manoeuvres d'Abou Dhabi", referring to own sources, some time ago, high-ranking Iranian officials arrived in Yemen, to establish a dialogue with the supporters of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh and the forces of Abdel Malek al-Huti. On the eve of the 35th anniversary of the establishment of the Saleh Party (the General People's Congress of Yemen) between these forces, which for a long time were allies, on August 24, 2017, even clashes occurred in Sanaa. The Saleh clan reproaches the Houthis ​​for monopolizing power in Sana'a, and the forces of Abdullek Al-Huti continued to seek opportunities to undermine this event. But under Tehran's pressure, the Shiite leader ultimately instructed his intelligence chief Abu Ali al-Hakem to take part in a reconciliation meeting with Interior Minister Mohammed bin Abdullah Al-Ghusi, closest to Saleh, who is also an acting general.

    During this meeting, the Saleh clan first of all asked that celebrations of the 35th anniversary of the founding of the party go smoothly. The request, formulated following the talks, led to a demonstration of strength by both camps. So, the Houthis ​​demonstrated their strength during the parade in the streets of Sana'a in the face of special forces, and former President Saleh mobilized several thousand of his supporters from loyal tribes.

    But the tension began to increase again from August 26. The Shiite police began to suspect Saleh of having concluded a secret deal with the Arab coalition, which is fighting against the Houthis, namely Abu Dhabi, with the participation of his son Ahmed Saleh. This assumption is based on the fact that the son of the president met in late June in the UAE capital with Prince Ahmed al-Assiri, who is the right-hand man of Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman on the operation in Yemen and is the second person in the Main Intelligence Directorate. This meeting was held on the initiative of an influential person in Abu Dhabi, Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nayhan, who, some time before, introduced Ahmed Saleh as the architect of the negotiations on the formation of the new government of Yemen.

     Making a choice in favor of the Saleh clan, Abu Dhabi expects to sow discord between the two camps. On the one hand, the Emirates are trying to upset the alliance between Saleh and the Husitians, concluded in 2016, with the goal of isolating the latter.

    At the same time, Abu Dhabi is still hoping to remove the current president of Yemen, Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi, from power and replace him with people closer to al-Nayhan. He prefers the candidacy of Khaled Bahah, who was previously prime minister in the Hadi government. But to the great disappointment of Abu Dhabi to this day, Hadi enjoys the military and financial support of Riyadh.

    Even Houthis and Al-Saleh have differences and conflicts and even UAE and S.Arabia disagree on who is going to held power from their side. It is the most complicated, sectarian conflict in M.East at this moment

    Definitely nothing to hide then?

    By JAMEY KEATEN Associated Press

    September 26, 2017 10:42 AM
    GENEVA

    Saudi Arabia has threatened other countries over a proposed resolution at the U.N.'s main human rights body, saying if they send international, independent investigators to war-torn Yemen that could "negatively affect" trade and diplomatic ties with the wealthy kingdom, a Saudi letter obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press shows.

    Two competing resolutions — one by Saudi Arabia and other Arab states and another by Canada and the Netherlands — have been proposed on how to best document the human rights violations in Yemen. The resolutions are shaping up as the main diplomatic showdown at the Human Rights Council session that ends Friday.

    Saudi Arabia has sent a letter to at least two foreign countries warning that the Arab states "will not accept" the Dutch-Canadian resolution, which seeks an "international, independent investigation."

    U.N. human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein has repeatedly called for such an investigation.

    I am so pleased with the latest news . Congratulations to Yemen rocket designer . So much progress under so much pressure and I hope that Saudi rulers will see that this war they have started , can bring ruin to Arabia , in more ways than one . And that for sake of both nations that they should stop the bombing and allow millions of starving Yemen people to get food and start to rebuild their life . Riding the sectarian tiger into war , will end in the tiger throwing them off and devouring them .

    The warmongers who profit , will profit even more . For as long as saudis consume their products . By waging war and buying their weapons . American warmongering companies must be the target . Their means to make weapons and to stash their ill gotten gains and their safe heavens ..........

    Looks like they may have hit the target regardless of Saudi claims the missile, probably as above a 'super' Scud, was intercepted. Seen video of explosions/smoke plus a four round Patriot? salvo lifting off.

    I am sure they were telling truth. One Scud with traditional 60yo design was intercepted.
    But I did not see any info about how many were launched thai night...

    Quite a good background article on the Sudanese army in Yemen

    "In late September, the military leader of Sudan’s Rapid Support Forces (RSF), General Muhammad Hamdan Daqlu (a.k.a. “Hametti”), unintentionally sparked controversy by announcing that 412 Sudanese soldiers had been killed in the war in Yemen, a figure of which most Sudanese people were wholly unaware (al-Sayha [Khartoum], September 27; Akhbar al-Yemen [Sanaa], September 27)."

    Russia and Saudi Arabia have reached agreements on the supplies of S-400 missile systems

    MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. Russia and Saudi Arabia have signed contracts on air defense, Head of Russia’s Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation Dmitry Shugayev told Rossiya 24 on Monday.
    "We have well-known contracts on air defense and other issues, which have been signed," Shugayev said, giving no details on the particular systems.
    Earlier, the press service of the Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation said Russia and Saudi Arabia had reached agreements on the supplies of S-400 missile systems.

    http://tass.com/defense/975329

    Any explanation for this? This is much worse than Turkey story, which fortunately did not materialize (yet).
    I really hope this too is some kind of a game and it will stay at that! Because if child-killing terror state of KSA gets S-400 (or any other system capable of stopping missiles from Yemen) Russia and Putin are not friends of this world.

    Admin/mod thanks but no thanks for moving my post from Yemen thread to a thread with a very low number of daily views (KSA-Russia trade deals). This is highly relevant here so please do not move it. I support(ed) Russia, but this is just disgusting and unbelievable as Russia knows very well what's going on in Yemen. Does anyone have any more info or any explanation for this shameful announcement?
