Yemen’s battlefield moves closer to key city of Marib

The United Nations special envoy to Yemen, Martin Griffiths, has called for immediate de-escalation as a drastic surge in fighting threatens to exacerbate the country’s long-running war and further complicate a fragile peace process.
Some say it might jeopardise two years of efforts by the UN negotiators to secure peace between Houthi rebels and the UN-recognised government.
The government has been fighting the rebels since 2014, when they overran the capital Sanaa. The conflict has left tens of thousands of people dead and triggered what the UN says is the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.

    It was UN who fked Yemen, do your history, Yemen was two parts one was back by USSR which later on become the government of Yemen after the fail of USSR. The PM was and still is the PM of the so call Yemen government which is back by UN BS. It is not fair, Houthi have the right to land and want it back that is it.

    • Ray Ray Reply

      Juulk. Your history leaves out many important details such as the fact that your original Imam was supported by Saudi prior to Ali Abdulallah Saleh and the North-South debate.

      In 1918 the Ottoman empire was dissolved and NORTH Yemen gains independence and ruled by Imam Yahya.
      South Yemen colonized by UK since 1839 and Never by Ottoman or Imam Yahya ( was know as South Arabia and was always independent until British rule).

      1948 Imam Yehya of North Yemen is assassinated by his son Ahmed who takes power as new Imam.

      Here is where it gets important:
      In 1962 NORTH Yemen imam Ahmad dies and his son With The Support Of The SAUDI Royals fights for rule against the Republic ( backed by Egypt). The Republicans win in 1970 and North Yemen is now the North Yemen Arab Republic.
      -South Yemen independent of these events.

      1967 South Yemen gains independence from British and becomes PEOPLE’S Republic of Yemen.

      1969 a communist coup renames South Yemen to Peoples Democratic Republic of Yemen and align with Soviet Bloc.

      1978 North is ruled by Ali Abdullah Saleh. South Yemen independent of Ali Saleh and North.

      1989 North Yemen ( Ali Saleh)
      Tries to take advantage of the dissolved USSR and “unite”/take over/ occupy South Yemen. 1990 Ali Saleh and his forces take South Yemen by killing many South Yemeni leaders.

      1994 a war to regain independence by the South Yemeni people was stopped by Ali Saleh and the “unification” / occupation of South Yemen remains until present conflict (2015-)

      If North Yemenies prefer the Houthies and Iran as their rulers than that is your choice and I respect your decision, but in South Yemen (South Arabia) we Do Not want the Houthies ( who attacked us in 2015), Abdu Rabbo the Saudis or Iran to rule over us and demand our independence.

      On the other side we have China and Russia veto power in the Security Council as well.

      U.N is in a limbo as these players veto each other’s moves.

    IRGC’s Houthis has been causing problems since before 2004. The Arab Spring was on 2011. The problems starts when the Twelvers starts spreading their poison among the Fivers which the president of Yemen at that time who is a Fiver don’t take it kindly.

    S.O.P of the Twelvers with their revolution inciting ideology, then blame it on others after throwing the first rock.
