Yemeni Rockets Rain Down on Saudi Military Base

The Yemeni army, backed by popular committee forces, launched 40 rockets at a military base in Saudi Arabia’s Dhahran Asir region on Tuesday.

According to reports, the Yemeni troops launched as many as 40 missiles and artillery shells against al-Amish military camp in Saudi Arabia’s Dhahran Asir and left scores of Saudi troops dead and injured.

There has been no immediate report on the number of casualties or the extent of the damage caused in the retaliatory attack.

Yemeni tribal forces, backed by army units and Ansarullah fighters, have launched a series of new attacks on the Saudi border cities in retaliation for Saudi Arabia’s ongoing aggression against the impoverished Arab country.

Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen in the last 83 days to bring its ally, fugitive president Mansour Hadi, back to power.

Saudi Journalist Calls for Attacking Iran, Wants Inauguration of Israeli Embassy in Riyadh

A tweet of the Saudi journalist and writer, Dahham Al Enazi, has infuriated social network users as he called for attacking Iran and opening Israel’s embassy in Riyadh.

“We welcome replacing Iranian embassy compound in Riyadh with an Israeli embassy, then launch a shared war on Iran and destroy its nuclear power plants; then when it (Israel) withdraws to the 1967 borders, we will recognize it and make it a member of the Arab League,” Al Enazi said on his tweeter account.

The question now is if we are going to see an opening of an Israeli embassy in the Saudi capital, after a string of secret and public meetings between the Saudis and Israelis.

In response, furious social media users in Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries launched a hashtag called “No embassy for Israel” in protest at Enazi’s tweet

Geneva Peace Talks: S. Arabia, UN Urge Yemen’s Ansarullah to Surrender

Yemeni sources close to the UN-sponsored peace talks in Geneva revealed that the meeting is about to fail even before it starts as the world body and Saudi Arabia have asked Ansarullah to surrender to all their conditions.

“The UN has called on Yemen’s revolutionary committees to withdraw from the country’s cities, surrender their weapons and don’t respond to the Saudi attacks,” an Ansarullah leader accompanying the movement’s delegation in the Geneva talks told FNA on Tuesday.

“The UN says that the best way to fight the al-Qaeda in Yemen is cooperation with Saudi Arabia and preventing (what they called as) Iran’s interference,” the Ansarullah leader who called for anonymity said.

He said the Ansarullah delegation has, meantime, underlined the necessity for an end to the Saudi regime’s strikes against Yemen and its interference in the country, and described Riyadh as an accomplice to the terrorists’ savage crimes against the Yemeni nation.

“The Ansarullah delegation has stressed that the Saudi regime is required to be punished for its aggression against Yemen, suppression of the peaceful revolution and massacre of the innocent people,” the Ansarullah leader said.

Noting that Saudi Arabia doesn’t want any political solution to the crisis in Yemen, he complained, “The Yemen peace talks in Geneva are under the UN supervision only in word and not in action; as a matter of fact this is Saudi Arabia that is controlling the talks and that’s why the negotiations shouldn’t be credited politically.”

“The UN wants truce in Yemen, but the Saudi side lays emphasis on continuing its barbaric aggression against the Yemeni nation,” the Ansarullah official added.

He said that Ansarullah has strong evidence to prove the Wahhabi Saudis’ role in Yemen’s conflicts which includes not only Riyadh’s political and economic support for the terrorists and militia supporting fugitive president Mansour Hadi, but also dispatch of equipment and terrorists from Syria to the battle grounds in Yemen.

Representatives of Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement arrived in the Swiss city of Geneva on Tuesday to attend UN-brokered peace talks.

The plane of the Yemeni delegates landed in Geneva on Tuesday with one day delay after it was not allowed to cross into Egyptian airspace.

The plane left Djibouti for the Swiss city late on Monday after it was barred from entering Egyptian airspace.

According to reports, Egypt did not allow the Yemeni plane to enter its airspace, forcing it to have a long stop in Djibouti.

The reports added the Egyptian move came as a result of pressure from Riyadh.

The UN-brokered peace talks are aimed at ending the Saudi aggression against the Arab country.
