    At one of the companies I was working at, some of my colleagues started calling me "Morpheus"; so it became sort of like a nickname. In certain fictional literature, Morpheus is the "god" of dreams, not that I have any skill in that department.

    The Eberhardt was a last name that was assigned to me in a computer game. Since then I have been using the combination as an online pseudonym.

    UN Envoy to Yemen Resigns Amid Armed Conflict in Country

    The UN special adviser on Yemen, reportedly has resigned amid the conflict in the country.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Jamal Benomar, the UN special adviser on Yemen, has resigned amid the conflict in the country, media reported Thursday.

    "Jamal Benomar has told the Secretary-General it is time for him to end his mission in Yemen but that he remains willing to help the UN in any capacity that is needed," Al Jazeera network reported, citing diplomatic sources.

    On Tuesday, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution imposing sanctions on former Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh's son and the Houthi rebel leader. The resolution also imposed an arms embargo on the Houthis and forces loyal to Saleh.

    Yemen has been in a state of turmoil since the Houthis took over large parts of the country, including Sanaa, forcing President Hadi to ask the Arab League for military aid and then flee the country.

    On March 26, Saudi Arabia and Persian Gulf countries began firing air-to-ground missiles at Houthi positions in Yemen upon Hadi's request. According to UN data, over 700 people have been killed and 2,700 wounded, most of them civilians, in the fighting.

    I believe that the mig-29s are out of yemen, and are hidden in saudi arabian air bases. I also think that they faked the mig-29s that are on the airports in yemen being bombed on the ground.

    Houthi Rebels Take Over Military Base in Yemen’s Taiz

    Houthi militants and their allies took over a military base in the southern Yemeni city of Taiz.

    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — Houthi militants and their allies have taken over a military base in the southern Yemeni city of Taiz, a Lebanese TV channel reported Wednesday.

    The rebels seized the headquarters of the 35th army brigade during violent clashes with forces loyal to country's President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi who fled the country amid mounting tensions in March, according to al-Mayadeen.

    Despite the international coalition announcing the completion of the military operation Decisive Storm in Yemen on Tuesday night, clashes have reportedly continued in southern areas of the country, including the cities of Aden, Taiz and Lahij.

    The military operation by the Saudi-led coalition against the Houthis was launched in late March at the request of Hadi.

    The Restoring Hope campaign, which will focus on counter-terrorism efforts, humanitarian missions, and the revival of political dialogue in Yemen, will replace the terminated Decisive Storm mission.

    The Houthi rebels, Yemen's main opposition force, control large territories in the country, including the capital Sanaa.

    Saudi Prince Rewards Pilots With Bentleys For Bombing Yemen

    Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, one of the world’s richest men and a member of the Saudi royal family, vowed Tuesday to give a Bentley luxury car to 100 pilots who served in Saudi-led airstrikes against Yemen.

    In his Arabic-language tweet, Prince Alwaleed wrote, “I congratulate our leaders on the success of Operation Resolute Storm and the start of Operation Restoring Hope. To recognize the one hundred participating Saudi pilots, I am pleased to give them 100 Bentley automobiles.”

    The cost of a luxury-brand Bentley typically begins at around $180,000.

    Iran official warns against further strikes in Yemen


    Hours before Saudi Arabia officially announced the end of Operation Decisive Storm, the military operation against the Houthis in Yemen, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein-Amir Abdollahian expressed his optimism “that due to our efforts,” a cease-fire would be reached in the coming hours.

    The cease-fire has been reached, and as is the case with most wars in the region, both the Houthis and the Saudi-led coalition are celebrating their victory. So are the Iranians, who raised the stakes so high during the past three weeks that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who is known for being cautious in his speeches, warned Riyadh that its nose was going to be rubbed in the mud of Yemen.

    According to an Iranian official who spoke to Al-Monitor on condition of anonymity, “If this war continued for a few days more, it would have been very difficult to reach a cease-fire.” He explained, “Ansar Allah was keen not to take the battle to another stage. Yet if the Saudis continued this way, they would cross the red lines they drew for themselves. This is what was conveyed to the Saudis through mediators.”

    The source revealed that Oman played an important and effective role in bridging gaps between the warring parties. He said, “Oman offered to host any future dialogue,while its foreign minister and his team tailored an initiative that should be a road map for a solution in Yemen. This initiative, along with Iran’s message to Riyadh, created an environment appropriate for a cease-fire.”

    Iran conveyed a serious message to Saudi Arabia, that the Houthi movement is capable of responding to Saudi coalition air raids on Yemen inside Saudi Arabia through its mid-range missiles and anti-aircraft rockets that had not yet been used. A Houthi source in Sanaa told Al-Monitor over the phone that the group’s leadership decided to adopt what it called strategic patience in an attempt not to make a consensus difficult. “It’s not our objective to hit the Saudis or attack posts inside Saudi Arabia. We did it back in 2009, and we are capable of doing it today,” the source added. “What we want is going into a dialogue and ridding our country of al-Qaeda, and that’s why we didn’t stop advancing from one city to another, despite the war on us.”

    This is the message the Iranians conveyed through a third party April 21, while Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokeswomen Marzieh Afkham revealed in a press release that Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif held a phone discussion with US Secretary of State John Kerry over Yemen. Some media reports suggested Kerry told Zarif the United States is interested in containing the situation and will convince Saudi Arabia to cease fire and in return will help in the political dialogue.

    Abdollahian told Al-Monitor, “While the 27-day war that Saudi Arabia launched on the people of Yemen will remain a dark point in the history of the region, the resistance and patience shown by the people of Yemen was a turning point.” He added, “Iran exerted serious efforts to end the war and the humanitarian tragedy taking place in Yemen. Iran backs a political path and stresses the importance of dialogue.”

    He added, "The kingdom’s raids actually target Yemen’s infrastructure and the people who are fighting against the terrorists.”

    Abdollahian also denounced as “totally baseless” the allegation that Tehran is providing arms to the Houthi movement's Ansar Allah fighters, saying that the presence of Iran’s naval forces in the Gulf of Aden falls within the framework of international regulations. “Iran’s policy is to help promote peace, security and stability in Yemen and the whole region,” he said.

    Iran defense minister: Saudi Arabia will fail in Yemen



    At a security conference in Moscow on April 16, Hossein Dehghan, Iran’s defense minister, said, “The Saudi government, which undertook this military invasion with the help of America and Israel and intelligence help from some regional countries, not only will not achieve its own illegitimate goals, but has provided the grounds for its own collapse and irreparable failures and a similar fate of that of Saddam [Hussein] is awaiting it.”

    He added, “The Saudi government should know that by supporting financially, logistically and by training of takfiris and terrorists in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Central Asia and the Caucuses, and attacking Yemen while preventing humanitarian aid, will not turn it into an important country in the region.” Dehghan said that Saudi Arabia will become an important country in the region when it can unite Muslims and bring together the different sects, given that they are the custodian of the two holy mosques in Islam.

    Saudi Arabia’s deepening isolation in Yemen


    In an unusual and stinging rebuke, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif this week rejected Saudi Arabia’s request to join its military campaign in Yemen.


    The Wall Street Journal reported that 648 civilians have been killed since the start of the Saudi airstrikes, which have hit hospitals, schools and a refugee camp. US officials have quietly begun to express reservations about the Saudi campaign targeting one of the poorest countries in the world.


    Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, who met with US President Barack Obama in Washington this week, warned that the Saudi attacks in Yemen could be a catalyst for a broader sectarian war. Adnan Abu Zeed reports from Baghdad that the Yemen war is deepening Sunni-Shiite animosity among Iraqis.


    Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah picked up Iran’s call for negotiations and an end to airstrikes. Ali Hashem reports: “On Iran’s readiness for dialogue, Nasrallah indicated that Tehran is ready to talk with Saudi Arabia, yet it is Saudi Arabia that is 'being stubborn because it has failed in all countries, in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, and it is seeking a success before sitting down at the negotiation table.'”

    Egypt Extends Participation in Anti-Houthi Operation in Yemen for 3 Months

    The Egyptian government has decided to prolong the mandate for its troops' involvement in the Saudi-led operation against Houthi rebels in Yemen for 3 months, Egyptian TV reports say.

    CAIRO (Sputnik) – The decision was made on Sunday at the request of Egypt's Ministry of Defense with the aim of protecting Egypt's national security and the security of the Arab world.

    Yemen has been in a state of turmoil since Houthi opposition forces seized the capital Sanaa, forcing Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and his government to resign in January. The president later renounced his resignation and asked the Arab League for military support.

    Egypt's President Abdel Fattah Sisi ordered to send a contingent of the country's armed forces to participate in the Saudi-led Decisive Storm military operation on March 26, the same day that the start of the air campaign was announced.

    On April 21, the coalition said it had completed the Decisive Storm military operation and announced the start of its Restoring Hope campaign, saying it would focus on counter-terrorism and humanitarian efforts and the revival of political dialogue between Hadi supporters and Houthi rebels.

    Meanwhile, Shiite Houthi forces continue to fight against forces loyal to Hadi in Yemen, particularly in the south of the country.

    Iran Vows Response to Saudi Interception of Aid Plane in Yemen


    An Iranian deputy foreign minister said that Tehran will respond against Riyadh after Saudi fighter jets blocked Iranian planes, including a consignment of humanitarian aid, from landing in Yemen.

    "Saudi Arabia's behavior in besieging Yemen and preventing the delivery of humanitarian aid will not remain unanswered," Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Sunday.

    A few days earlier, Saudi warplanes refused an Iranian plane containing humanitarian goods landing in Yemen and forced it to return to Tehran.

    "We are considering all options for helping the Yemeni people, the immediate delivery of humanitarian assistance and transfer of the injured (Yemenis)," Amir Abdollahian added.

    Saudi airstrikes against Sana'a airport force Iran's aid plane to return

    An Iranian cargo plane carrying medical aid and foodstuff for crisis-hit people in Yemen has been forced to return as Riyadh pushes ahead with its deadly airstrikes against the Arab state, Press TV reports.

    Press TV has learned that 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 international airport in the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, as Saudi warplanes were violently striking the runway of the civil airport.

    The development comes days after Saudi fighter jets intercepted an Iranian airplane, carrying humanitarian aid to Yemen, and prevented it from entering the Yemeni airspace on April 22.

    An Iranian Foreign Ministry official said the Saudi move came after the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) had obtained the necessary permission to fly in the Oman-Yemen route and send a plane in coordination with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in order to fly Yemeni patients back to Iran and distribute medical aid to the injured in the war-wracked country.

    Iran summons Saudi diplomat over plane interception in Yemen


    ISNA said two Iranian cargo planes carrying food and medicine to Yemen had been forced by Saudi jets to leave Yemeni airspace, one on Thursday and another on Friday.

    "Unfortunately, Saudi fighter jets have blocked two Iranian planes, which were carrying wounded Yemenis who had been treated in Iran and also carrying humanitarian and medical aid, from landing in Yemen and forced them to return home," ISNA quoted an unnamed Iranian official as telling the Saudi diplomat.

    Tasnim news agency said the foreign ministry also had complained to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) over Riyadh's blocking of the humanitarian aid sent to Yemen.

    "The Iranian planes had the necessary permissions for flying the Oman-Yemen air route and had fully coordinated the plan with the International Red Cross and Red Crescent societies," it quoted deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian as saying.

    The International Red Cross described the humanitarian situation as "catastrophic."



    *******

    Tehran welcomed Sunni-led Saudi Arabia's announcement on Tuesday that it was ending almost a month of air strikes against the Shi'ite Muslim Houthi rebels allied to Tehran, saying the conflict in Yemen would fuel sectarian disputes in the Middle East.

    Riyadh resumed air strikes and ground fighting a few hours later.
    ^^^^^^


    They said the air strike is over and after a few hours they resumed it ?

    Iranian Plane Captain Asks to Be Sent to Mission Impossible in Yemen Again



    Yemeni Conflict: News - Page 9 13931210000423_PhotoI

    TEHRAN (FNA)- The pilot of the Iranian cargo plane that was forced to return home after Saudi fighter jets bombed the Sana'a airport control tower and runway seven times to prevent his landing only moments before the final touchdown said he desires to fly to Yemen again to deliver his humanitarian cargo to the war-ravaged nation.

    "Certainly, I will fly to Yemen if I find another opportunity. Of course my other colleagues also rival with each other over such an opportunity," Captain Behzad Sedaqatnia told FNA on Wednesday.

    Captain Sedaqatnia's plane was bound for Sana'a International Airport on Tuesday but was intercepted by the Saudi fighters before landing in Yemen's airport. The Saudi fighter jets staged seven air raids on Sana'a airport which also set fire to an aircraft belonging to the al-Saeeda airlines to make the Iranian captain avoid landing.

    The cargo plane was due to take humanitarian aid to Yemen and take several civilians, who were critically wounded in the recent Saudi bombings, back to Tehran to receive specialized medical treatment.


    Also on Tuesday night, Sedaqatnia had told the Iranian state-run TV that "15 minutes after entering Yemen's airspace, Saudi fighter jets came to escort us insisting that we change our flight plan and go to Saudi Arabia".

    "Then they once again warned us to go to Saudi Arabia and land in an airport there, but we refused," the captain added, saying that the Saudi fighter jets have even threatened to shoot the plane down and told him that the cargo plane had no other way, but to change the flight plan accordingly.

    "But when we defied and approached the Sana'a International Airport, the Saudi warplanes targeted the airport with rockets and bombs, and when we found out that we couldn't land in there we decided to return," said the captain who went to the Omani capital, Muscat, to refuel the plane before returning to Iran.

    Captain Sedaqatnia's plane was the third Iranian aircraft that was carrying humanitarian aid to Yemen, but was intercepted by the Saudi fighter jets and made to return home.

    EXCLUSIVE: Maersk Tigris Freed, Leaves Iran's Waters


    "Today the (Maersk Tigris) ship was released and it left the Iranian territorial waters," Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said.

    She said all the ship crew members were fully safe and healthy when they left Iran's waters.

    Meantime, Pars Tala'eyeh Oil Products Company officials hoped that the Iranian Ports and Maritime Organization has received "sufficient assurances and a solemn promise" from Maersk Line company for guaranteed compensation of their financial losses as mentioned in the court ruling.

    Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari had announced on Tuesday that Maersk Tigris will be freed after its owner, Maersk Line Shipping Co. pays compensation money to the Iranian company that had sued it.

    "According to the court ruling issued in the case involving this ship, it will be released after paying the compensation money to the Islamic Republic of Iran," Sayyari said in an interview with the state-run TV.

    His remarks came after Managing-Director of Pars Tala'eyeh Oil Products Company Hamidreza Jahanian said Maersk Tigris had been kept in custody because it owed $10mln to his company.

    "Unfortunately, a number of containers sent by Pars Tala'eyeh Oil Products Company through the Maersk Line Shipping Co. were not delivered to the customer in Jebel Ali in 2003, which initiated financial disputes between us and Maersk Line Shipping Co. then," Jahanian told FNA on Saturday.

    Since Maersk Line Shipping Co. had some differences with its representative in Iran, it refrained from delivering the goods to the customer and the efforts to pursue the case through the company proved futile, he added.

    Forces in Yemeni Conflict Reach Truce Over Marib City – Source

    A ceasefire agreement was reached with the mediation of a local tribe in the city of Marib in Yemen.

    SANAA (Sputnik) – The warring sides in the Yemeni conflict have managed to reach a truce, aided by local tribes, in the city of Marib, a local source told Sputnik on Friday.

    "A ceasefire agreement was reached with the mediation of a local tribe in the city of Marib. Both Houthis and the soldiers loyal to the ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh on one side, and the militants of Al-Islah [a Yemeni opposition party], as well as the tribal troops who support President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi," the source said.

    Yemen has been in a state of turmoil in recent months since Houthi rebels took control of large areas of the country, including the capital Sanaa.

    In late March, a coalition of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia launched airstrikes against Houthi positions at ousted President Hadi's request, who had fled Yemen due to the worsening hostilities.

    The coalition announced the end to its airstrikes in late April, yet the attacks continued into May.

    On Friday, the Saudi-led coalition continued to carry out airstrikes on rebel positions in Yemen's Saada province that borders Saudi Arabia

    Moroccan F-16 jet from Saudi-led coalition in Yemen goes missing

    Moroccan F-16 jet goes missing in Yemen; Saudi-coalition unsure if pilot ejected

    RABAT/CAIRO (Reuters) - A Moroccan F-16 warplane has gone missing while on a mission with Saudi-led forces in Yemen, Morocco's military said on Monday, and Yemen's dominant Houthi militia said regional tribesmen shot down the aircraft.

    The disappearance of the Moroccan jet and intensifying duels of heavy-weapons fire across the border between the Iran-allied Houthis and Saudi forces could endanger a five-day humanitarian truce due to start in Yemen on Tuesday morning.


    "One of the F-16s of the Royal Armed Force put at the disposal of the coalition led by Saudi Arabia to restore the legitimacy in Yemen went missing on Sunday at 6 p.m. local time," Morocco's military said in a statement on Monday.

    The Houthis' official news channel al-Masirah said on Monday that anti-aircraft guns had downed an F-16 over in the remote Wadi Nashour area in the northwestern province of Saada, a Houthi stronghold bordering on Saudi Arabia.
