Tens of thousands of Yemenis join anti-Saudi rally in Sana’a

Saudi warplanes have launched at least five airstrikes against a military base in the Yemeni city of Taiz, following the withdrawal of al-Qaeda militants.

According to reports, the airstrikes were launched late on Wednesday along with several other ones across the impoverished country.

The region of Safiah in Sa’ada province was targeted by three rockets while the region of Jada’an in Ma’rib province also came under attack.

The airstrikes were launched despite Riyadh Tuesday declared a halt to an air campaign it started on March 26.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called for an end to fighting in the Arab world’s poorest country, saying he “took note” of Saudi Arabia’s announcement of an end to airstrikes.

Ban further voiced concerns over the resumption of fighting in Yemen.

Saudi Diplomat: Yemeni Rebels Won’t Win

Saudis Fear Overthrow of the Monarchy

Saudi fear that internal opposition would join with rebel factions in Yemen has pushed the Kingdom to turn to carefully vetted troops loyal only to the Royal Family. Some analysts believe that the Saudi move to side with ISIS and Al Qaeda in Yemen and its history of religious and financial support for these pro-Wahahi institutions, may help bolster the flagging popularity of the much criticized monarchy.

From Al Jazeera:

The coalition announcement came hours after Riyadh said it was preparing to send its elite National Guard to reinforce its border with Yemen.

The National Guard is regarded as the country’s best equipped military force, and until now has not been involved in the campaign.

Led by Miteb, the son of the late King Abdullah, the unit is recruited from tribes that have traditionally backed the Saudi royal family.

Saudi Arabia has announced it is ceasing its bombing campaign against Yemen.

“The Houthis have in their arsenal a variety of missiles including long-rage Fatah 110 and Sam7, anti-tank Concors 72, anti-armored vehicle Tofan and Stinger, which can probably upset the military calculations of the Saudi-led coalition.”
