Yemen in Ruins.

The Saudi Army and their allies from the Arab Coalition carried out an unprovoked attack against the Houthi forces in the city of Ta’iz, resulting in a violent battle that lasted for nearly three hours on Wednesday.

In addition to the street fights taking place, the Saudi Air Force launched a number of airstrikes along Yemeni coast, hitting several areas under the control of the Houthi forces and the Yemeni Republican Guard.

Saudi Arabia and the Houthi leadership are set to meet in Kuwait later this week in order to begin the U.N. sponsored peace talks.

However, Saudi Arabia’s repeated ceasefire violations have infuriated the Houthi leadership, who are now threatening to retaliate if these attacks do not stop.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
