US-Saudi aggression uses war prisoners as political card: Yemeni official

Quote

"We feel for the suffering of the are prisoners and their families, so we were keen to make ultimate concessions for their release, but the problem is the other party," he said. He noted that "the pro US-Saudi Aggression party does not care about its prisoners, and they do not view their suffering and the suffering of their families with humanitarian eyes. They look at the prisoners' issue, purely as part of a political or military agenda. This view of the countries of aggression and their mercenaries is the biggest obstacle preventing the total release of the prisoners, as a humanitarian issue."

He added, "we will not live in peace as long as our war prisoners in the prisons of the aggression and I reassure their families that we will do everything we can to liberate them."

With regard to the aggression, siege and economic conditions in the country, he explained that there is an American-Israeli agenda in which they are working to implement through the aggression, stressing that Yemenis will not accept any demands that do not meet their aspiration and are not at the level of the sacrifices they have made.

Health situation of Bahraini detainee Mushaima deteriorates, transferred to military hospital

Quote


His son Ali Mushaima said via his Twitter account that his father suffered a rise in blood pressure and a sudden health deterioration the day before yesterday.

He added that the authorities returned him to the prison, expressing the family's concern over his health because they don't know his health condition and the treatment he received. Health care negligence and treatment denial is a crime, Ali Mushaima noted.

Some of the settlers were reportedly seen performing Jewish prayers in the eastern area of the Mosque.

Meanwhile, Israeli police officers kidnaped a Palestinian young man called Omar Ashtiya from the Aqsa Mosque, and searched other young men and forced them to leave the holy site.

Iraq discovers mass grave of Daesh victims in Kirkuk

Quote


The grave in the town of Dawood al-Alouka contains the remains of 45 people killed by Daesh terrorists, the officer said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

He said forensic authorities will exhume the bodies for DNA tests to identify them.

Daesh terrorists gained full control in Mosul, Salahadin and Anbar provinces and seized territories in Diyala and Kirkuk in 2014. But Iraqi security forces managed to regain control in subsequent years.
In 2017, Iraq declared victory over Daesh by reclaiming all of its territory – about a third of the country’s area – invaded by the terrorist group. However, the terrorist group still maintains sleeper cells in large areas of Iraq and periodically launches attacks.

Qatar is considering sending ambassador to Sanaa soon: Sputnik

Quote

The source, who refused to reveal his identity, indicated to the blockade imposed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE on Qatar, which Iran had stepped forward to lift it and provide support to it in light of the crisis that still exists so far, creating a kind of rapprochement and strategic cooperation and the distinguished relationship between Doha and Tehran.

He continued, “Doha may take this step as a kind of gratitude to Tehran, after Iran has become today a pivotal country that no one can exclude or deny, and this is a reality.”

The source emphasized that “Qatar is dealing with statesmanship and rational policy in the region and it does not want to enter into hostility.”

Last Saturday, the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the arrival of its new ambassador to the Yemeni capital, Sanaa.

Israeli jets attack Gaza Strip

Quote

The Israeli army said through a statement that it had stricken two targets belonging to the Palestinian resistance movement of Hamas in the territory on Thursday night.

Russia’s Sputnik news agency cited Palestinian sources as saying that the Israeli aggression targeted a number of facilities belonging to Gaza-based resistance fighters at the al-Nuseirat refugee camp that is located in the central part of the coastal sliver.

Israeli warplanes were also reported to have fired two rockets towards agricultural lands in the town of al-Qarara that is located to the northeast of the southern city of Khan Yunis in Gaza.

The Israeli regime claimed that the strikes were conducted shortly after two rockets were fired from the blockaded Palestinian enclave toward the occupied territories.

Akhras is being held in the Israeli Kaplan hospital in an extremely dangerous health condition as he suffers from severe fatigue and stress, pain in the joints, abdomen and stomach, and permanent headache in addition to weight loss and a balance disorder.

He is also unable to move, losing a lot of fluids and salts. His senses of hearing and speaking have been affected negatively. Doctors warned of damage to several organs of Akhras's body, such as the kidneys, liver and heart, and thus his life is at risk of sudden death.

Palestinian human rights organizations and political parties warned that Akhras would die at any moment because he entered the stage of extreme danger.

Akhras said in a previous message, “I am committed to my decision and will eat food only in my home, and I will not break my will. I am now in the Kaplan Hospital, I do not drink anything but water, and I will continue doing so until I return to my house.”

Analysis: Fear-shadowed protests in northern Syria against Kurdish forces, their American allies

Quote

US-backed militias continue attacks on civilians

On Monday, media reports said that the Kurdish forces attacked people in “Police District” in Qweyran town of Hasakah province in eastern Syria asking them to evacuate their homes and leave. They, reports added, assaulted a number of women in the neighborhood.

US-backed forces attacked

In response to the SDF and US atrocities in Al-Jazira, on Monday unknown people launched separate attacks on the militiamen killing one and injuring another. 

Protests against the SDF heat up

The demonstrations against the SDF forces continue in eastern Syria. The protestors condemned the Kurdish forces’ dereliction of the health sector in the areas under their control, as this can pave the way for further spread of coronavirus across the region.

Looting oil resources with the US assistance

Recently, reports said that the SDF has begun selling oil produced in northeast to the terrorist groups present in north and northwest.

The Kurdish forces hold much of the oil and gas fields in the east and northeast Syria.

New Iranian ambassador to Yemen submits his credentials to Yemeni foreign minister

Quote

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): On Tuesday, the new Iranian ambassador to Yemen met with Foreign Minister Hisham Sharaf, the foreign minister of the Yemeni National Salvation Government, and presented him with a copy of his credentials.

According to an IRNA report on Tuesday, quoting Yemeni media, Hassan Eyrlou, the new ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Sanaa, submitted a copy of his credentials to the Foreign Minister of the Yemeni National Salvation Government.

 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran announced in late October that Eyrlou had arrived in Yemen.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh confirmed the news of Eyrlou’s arrival in Sanaa at the time and said he would be the Islamic Republic's ambassador to Yemen.


In August of last year, the Yemeni National Salvation Government named Ibrahim Mohammed al-Dailami as its Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Iran.

Iran strongly condemns assassination of Yemeni Minister

Quote

In a statement early on Wednesday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh expressed his condolences to the government, nation and family of this Yemeni official, saying, “Undoubtedly, this cowardly assassination, like other crimes of the aggressors in Yemen, only shows the weakness and the stalemate of the aggressors in the face of the resilient and determined nation of Yemen.”

"This assassination not only does not weaken the will and morale of the Yemeni people, but also shows the legitimacy of this zealous nation more than before."

Yemen confirmed on Tuesday that Zaid has been killed in an assassination operation carried out by criminal elements affiliated with Saudi-led aggressors.

The Yemeni Interior Ministry announced that Zaid was shot while driving with his daughter in the Yemeni capital, Sana'a, on Tuesday. The assassination operation claimed the minister’s life and injured his daughter, it added.

So far, no group has claimed the responsibility for the attack.

Illegal, unconstructive: NATO eyes mission boost in Iraq

Quote

Stoltenberg gave publicity to the agreement after a two-day summit of the NATO defense ministers, saying that with the security situation challenging, the organization commits to increasing its logistics. 

"Our aim is to help build self-sustaining Iraqi forces able to fight terrorism, prevent the return of ISIS, and stabilize their country," claimed Stoltenberg. 

He also cited a "concerning" rise in the number and sophistication of attacks against international forces in Iraq. 

Increase of NATO presence against Iraqis’ demand 

The commitment cited by the NATO chief to expand the mission of the forces comes as the Iraqi public opinions are strongly demanding the foreign forces to leave their country as the ISIS terrorist group, for which the US-led Western coalition sent forces to Iraq, is now obliterated organizationally. 

US continues presence in Iraq under NATO cover

Earlier, an American official, who talked on the condition of anonymity, said that it is predicted that the US cut its forces in Iraq by one-third. 

The US President Donald Trump in mid-August and during a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mostafa al-Kadhimi at the White House said that he was seeking to remove forces from Iraq and this process will take three years to complete. 

Last month, CENTCOM commander General Kenneth F. MacKenzie stated that the American forces will be cut to 3,000 from 5,200. CENTCOM, short for Central Command, is a unified combatant command whose area of responsibility includes West Asia, Egypt, Central Asia, and parts of South Asia. 

In this case, although the US ostensibly removes its forces from Iraq, it will continue its presence and movement in the country under the umbrella of the NATO mission,

Analysis: Yemeni Islah party’s strategic shift to Ansarullah: grounds, consequences

Quote

 During this time, they took back Naham district in the capital Sana’a, as well as Al-Hazm as the center of Jawf province, and have made considerable progress in their push to Ma’rib.

According to a report by Lebanon's Al-Akhbar newspaper, the advances have stalled in the past days as the two sides are swapping prisoners.

Meanwhile, important news is that sources close to Sana’a administration told Al-Akhbar that negotiations are underway between Ansarullah and the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated, Hadi-aligned Islah Party that holds the city. Qatar is the interlocutor in these talks. 

The sources, predicting that Qatar would likely reopen its embassy in Sana’a to be the second country after Iran, held that Doha tries to persuade Islah leaders to accept the Ansarullah initiative and hence maintain their achievements in Ma’rib. 

Ma’rib strategic position 

Ma’rib is located in the center of Yemen and east of the capital Sana’a. The province is surrounded by five provinces or Jawf in the north, Sana’a in the west, Al Bayda and Shabwa in the south, and Hadhramaut in the east. 

The province has a rich cultural history, dating back to about 3,000 years. As the capital of the ancient kingdom of Saba, Ma’rib is full of landmarks of the Saba civilization. Ma’rib dam backs to the eighth century B. C.

Jaham tribe, for their religious bonds to the Shiite sect of Zaidiyyah as the official faith of Ansarullah, went divided over whether to fight the movement or welcome its campaign. Many of the tribal leaders, of Murad and Hashemi tribes, backed the Ansarullah campaign, though a major part of the province’s oil-rich areas were held by the Obaideh tribe which is close to Saudi Arabia. 

Ma’rib and deepening gap with Aden

Differences between the UAE-backed southerners in the Hadi government and the Islah Party is clear to all. Also, the party regards Riyadh agreement between Hadi and the southern separatist Southern Transitional Council (STC) as a step to cut the power of influence and role of Islah in the fugitive government. 

Saudi Arabia’s decline to openly blast occupation of Socotra Island, another important base for the Islah Party, by the UAE and its Yemeni loyalist militias is another source of worry of the Islah leaders about their marginalization in the future Saudi plans for the country.

The same sources said Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman received information telling him of a scheme to separate Najran, Jizan, and Asir provinces of Saudi Arabia into an independent state with the leadership of Fahd in association with the Brotherhood leaders in Yemen. The sources talked about the cooperation of the veteran Yemeni general Muhsen al-Ahmar, Hadi’s Defense Minister Mohammed Ali al-Maghdeshi, and leaders from Islah Party. Prince Fahd now is imprisoned and the other plotters are now wanted by Saudi Arabia, the sources added.

Analysis: New plot against Iraq’s PMF? Who really wants voluntary forces out and why?

Quote

on Tuesday Al-Monitor news and analysis outlet reported that a group naming itself “Salahuddin Sunni Community” has attributed the killings to the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) and called for the expulsion of the voluntary anti-terror forces from the city.

The accusations promote some questions: What base does the new anti-PMG project is lying on? Does this new antipathetic wave have real bases or is it a made-up conspiracy directed by foreign actors?

The domino of anti-PMF plots in the disputed regions of Iraq

Causing crises to revive ISIS

Ammar Hekmat, the deputy governor of Salahuddin province, told Al-Monitor that there are calls for the security forces — including the PMU — to be expelled from the province. He said however that forces are needed to protect the land because, given both the size and complex terrain of Salahuddin province, "local forces are simply not enough.”

Sunnis stand with the PMF

Qassem al-Kuraiti, the commander of the PMF’s 41st Brigade, in a statement published on October 18 announced that one of the posts of the force was encircled and attacked by ISIS elements who tried to push against an offensive led by local voluntary forces, including fighters from the Sunni tribes that cooperate with the federal security forces and the PMF.

Over the past month, an American-Israeli-Saudi plot has been in the works to expel the popular forces, formed in 2014 following a fatwa by the grand Ayatollah Sayed Ali Sistani to battle the ISIS terrorist group, from the areas dubbed “disputed” under the Article 140 of the Iraqi constitution. The trio’s push was mainly represented by a security agreement reached earlier this month between the Iraqi central government and the Kurdistan region on the Yazidi ethnic people in the disputed territory of Sinjar.

Tel Aviv in shock of the Resistance rockets

Quote

ISWNews Analysis Group: On November 15 morning, the rocket alarm went off in towns near Gaza Strip in response to several rockets fired from Gaza.

Israel media said the alarm was heard first in Ashkelon and then two rockets hit the town. Another rocket hit Ashdod harbor, in the north of Gaza. The surprise however was when two rockets hit south of Tel Aviv in the Palmachim area, while no alarm was sounded and thus Iron Dome did not intercept the rockets.

A security official of Zionist regime said that this was a dangerous incident and regime’s army will answer severely

Health condition of ledaer of Bahrain’s opposition Haq Movement deteriorating in jail

Quote

Ali Mushaima, son of the distinguished activist, roundly dismissed allegations by the Bahraini Ministry of Interior that his father had received all the rights stipulated for prisoners, including full health care.

“He was recently taken to the emergency department in the Military Hospital, and then returned to prison after about 6 hours. He was put on a ventilator to breathe for the second time within recent weeks, and the real causes of his health deterioration remain unknown,” the son said, Press TV reported.

“My father told me that doctors initially suspected a stroke; but couldn't reach a definitive diagnosis. His health deterioration comes as prison officials failed to arrange appointments with specialists after he was last admitted to hospital in October.”

Ali Mushaima highlighted that the prisoner suffers from several illnesses and that the family is seriously worried about his health condition.

“He used to only take one tablet per day for diabetes, but as a result of neglect throughout bitter years of imprisonment and lack of adequate health care he now requires 4 daily insulin shots in addition to other tablets.”

“My father needs to be examined for cancer regularly every six months. He has, however, been waiting for such checkups for more than 7 months. Additionally, he has hearing problems left untreated for four years,” Ali Mushaima said.
