President Joe Biden promised to end the conflict in Yemen. To this end, he quickly reversed an ill-conceived Trump administration move to designate the Houthis as a foreign terrorist organization and appointed Tim Lenderking, a seasoned diplomat well-versed on the Yemen issue, as special envoy charged with supporting U.N. negotiations. Five months later, though, negotiations are going nowhere.
Houthis were seeking to forcibly impose their radical ideology that was widely contested by Yemenis. Despite their participation in the National Dialogue Conference, which explicitly worked to address Houthi grievances, they refused to accept the outcomes of the conference, launching, instead, the assault on the government that is the basis of today’s conflict.
The Biden administration should make clear to the Houthis that the international community will not accept them as Yemen’s de facto government or even the legitimate rulers of a rump North Yemen.
The Biden administration’s approach to the conflict in Iraq stands in sharp contrast with the situation in Afghanistan, as America winds down its longest war.
The Pentagon has trained hundreds of thousands of Iraqis in recent years who have led the fight against the Islamic State, with the U.S. military providing air support and intelligence when needed.
Iraqi officials are seeking a long-term military partnership; in Afghanistan, all U.S. troops are expected to leave by Aug. 31, aside from roughly 600 who will remain to help secure the U.S. embassy and the Kabul airport.
After Afghanistan descend into chaos and…
Empty-handed, Aisha Mohammed left the livestock market where residents of Yemen’s southern city of Aden usually buy sacrificial animals for Eid Al Adha.
Millions of Yemenis struggling to cope with rising prices caused by a sharp drop in the value of the Yemeni riyal, which has added to difficulties they face as a result of the country’s civil war.
The economic crisis is affecting sellers as well as consumers. The livestock market in Al Mansoura, the biggest cattle market in Aden, is usually crowded before Eid Al Adha. But last Wednesday, with only days to go, it had hardly any customers.
Ethiopia’s prime minister has vowed to wipe out the “cancer” of a rebel group in war-torn Tigray, prompting fears of genocide in a conflict that has raged since last November.
Abiy Ahmed, 44, used word such as “weeds”, “cancer” and “disease” to describe the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), which once ruled Ethiopia but was designated a terrorist organisation by Abiy’s government in May.
This is the rhetoric of genocide. While there are many tyrants killing people around the world… “it takes aparticulr kind of leder to kill a country”
Iran systematically interrogated, condemned, and executed 30,000 political prisoners in 1988 as part of an effort to stamp out organized opposition to the fledgling theocratic dictatorship.
Both the current and the former Ministers of Justice for the entire regime were previously members of the death commissions in 1988.
The former, Ebrahim Raisi, was confirmed as the new president of the Iranian regime on June 18, after a tightly controlled electoral process in which the vast majority of the Iranian population refused to participate
Greece and the EU have a legal case against Turkey’s violation of the refugee deal, says Todd Carney, a Harvard graduate and specialist in international law.
Though Turkey has not formally withdrawn from the agreement, Turkey’s action in permitting refugees to go through to Europe is a clear violation of the agreement. There are a myriad of ways to try to hold Turkey accountable.
Turkey is letting more migrants go into Greece, which created an overflow of refugees into Greece. The refugees cannot go beyond Greece because they are not allowed to move freely in the EU without permission of the EU government.
Though Turkey did reduce the numbers of migrants going to the EU, thousands of refugees still made it to Greece making the refugee crisis worst.
The Taliban insists that they will protect human rights particularly those of women but only according to “Islamic values”. The only condition- not following them would lead to unfathomable punishment.
The Taliban ruled Afghanistan according to a hardline and radicalized interpretation of the Holy Quran from 1996 to 2001
Women were ordered to stay indoors unless accompanied by a male, girls were banned from school, and those found guilty of crimes such as adultery were stoned to death in the land ruled by the Taliban.
The Brotherhood of the Muslim Brotherhood was already in the crosshairs of the eco-conservative government since the Vienna attack which left four dead and 23 injured on November 2, 2020. It has now been registered at the end of last week, on the 8th. last July, on the blacklist of organizations linked to “religiously motivated crime”.
The new anti-terrorism law was adopted on July 8. It offers the authorities greater prerogatives in the field of surveillance and control of extremist circles. But its most important measure is the inclusion of the Muslim Brotherhood on the list of “extremist groups linked to religiously motivated crime”. The name of the brotherhood is thus added to those of Daesh, Al-Qaida, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Kurdish PKK, the Turkish Gray Wolves also banned in France and Germany, and the Croatian fascist movement of the Ustasha
The Iran-backed Houthis are seeking new methods of recruitment and to avoid the great shortage of their elements on the battle fronts.
Houthis is blackmailing citizens for their urgent needs for domestic gas, and linking obtaining it to the financial and human support provided their battle fronts, according to what local sources confirm, not to mention the issue of their trading in citizens’ shares of gas for the benefit of the militia’s assets and leaders.
