A military coalition spearheaded by Saudi Arabia has struck secret deals with al-Qaeda militants to retreat for territories they control and point their guns to fight the Iran-backed Houthi group.

An investigation conducted by the Associated Press revealed that Saudi Arabia paid huge amounts of money for al-Qaeda jihadists in order to withdraw from several cities and towns across Yemen, to eventually hand them over to the coalition.

The investigation also found that the United States had prior knowledge of the suspicious deals of its allies, but did absolutely nothing about it.

Moreover, it [United States] refrained from carrying out drone strikes against al-Qaeda as its militants walked away evidently.

Even though the United States doesn’t fund the coalition, but it send it billions of dollars in weapons to fight the Iran-backed group. American jets even provide air-to-air refueling for coalition war planes.

AP investigation pointed out that the Saudi-led coalition recruited scores of al-Qaeda jihadists. A Yemeni official who was informed of the pacts from the very beginning said that Saudi Arabia is ready to “unite with the devil in the face of Houthis”.

This doesn’t surprise me in the least. Saudi Arabia, Wahabbism, Bin Laden, al Qaeda — follow the money and madrassas.
The British Government is sitting on a report about Saudi Arabia and the spread of Muslim extremism in lieu of arms sales to the autocracy

CAR report: “These weapons originate in transfers made by external parties, including Saudi Arabia and the United States, to disparate Syrian opposition forces arrayed against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. Supplied into Syria through the territories of regional proxies—notably Jordan and Turkey—this materiel was rapidly captured by IS forces…

And also even more Russian and Chinese ones, LOL! Oh, BTW, SAA uses a lot of French equipment since daddy Assad bought a lot : Gazelle armed choppers, Milan ATGM, etc etc etc… Many have simply been seized from SAA or Kurds. Better understand this : weapons builders are usually only related to the 1st client which usually is a state. But there are exceptions… Now what a state will do with these? Mystery and bubblegum! You can even ask yourself how ISIS received AK-103 while these are only sold (in this region) to… Syrian Police and IRGC… In case… Read more »

The only problem is that both France and the US admitted that they are arming terrorists.

Why would I deny reality? You’re the one denying reality saying I’m a Jewish troll while actually, I’m an Aryan fulfilling all criterias to enter the Waffen-SS, according to your Führer’s standards. So, how yer beloved Marine Le Pen is doing? Seems that the appeal court won’t decide to confirm/infirm the seizure of the €2M of her party funding, meanwhile, 14 members of the board are indicted… Things aren’t going great for your beloved neo-fascist far-right Why would I be surprised seeing the Bani-Saud hiring Qaedans as cannon-fodder? You know, since I have that Zarqawi (Daesh’s founder) had general Qassem… Read more »
