Presenting a new proof that the Saudi regime is a mere obedient follower of the US and Israeli masters, Riyadh has led an air aggression on Yemen in order to secure their interests in Bab El-Mandeb strait, the political analyst, Salem Zahran, told Al-Manar Website.
Under the false pretexts of seeking to reinstall the fugitive Yemeni president Abdrabbu Mansour Hadi and restoring the authority’s powers across its neighboring country, the Saudi-led coalition started its campaign, which targeted the civilians, the residential areas, the public institutions, and the army’s posts, only after the military and the public committees reached Aden which overlooks the strait, after they had controlled most of the cities, including the capital.
“38% of the international navigation crosses through Bab El Mandeb which represents Israel’s basic economic lifeline,” Zahran noted, “The Americans and the Israelis deploy on the west bank of the strait, in Eritrea and Djibouti, where the largest US military base and the Mossad bureaus exist.”
The analyst revealed that the Wahabbi regime in Saudi Arabia has planned to end its conflict with the Muslim Brotherhood movement, especially after it regained control over Egypt by dethroning Mohammad Mursi and installing Abdul Fatah al-Sisi, in order to form a coalition which includes the Gulf countries, Egypt and Turkey to face what it describes as the Iranian influence in the whole region, including Yemen.
Salam Zahran considered that internal Saudi factors may have played only a secondary role in taking the decision of launching an aggression on Yemen, stressing that the royal family in KSA has always imposed its hereditary rule on the country without paying any least attention to the public demands and desires.
Zahran pointed out that the US-led airstrikes on Syria and Iraq, the Egyptian air raids on Libya and the ongoing air aggression on Yemen inserted the whole region in a new era of surpassing Sykes-Picot borders.
He also stressed that the military power will delineate the new borders of the countries in the region.
Zahran asserted that Saudi Arabia will collapse if it launches a ground incursion in Yemen, mentioning that airstrikes will not last long as their goals will run out.
He further said that the coalition’s campaign aims at deploying Arab and international peace-keeping troops in Aden and at Bab el Mandeb strait to secure US-Israeli interests there.
“The response to the Saudi-led aggression will be carried out by the patriotic Yemenis who can identify the conditions of their movement,” the political analyst concluded.
A coalition of 10 countries, led by the Saudi Arabia, launched late Wednesday a wide military offensive on Yemen, killing dozens of civilians, wounding scores of others and causing so much destruction.
Media outlets reported that Saudi Arabia has deployed “100 fighter jets, 150,000 soldiers and other navy units” for the military campaign against Yemen. It also sent 5000 takfiri terrorists to fight against the Yemeni army.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is known for training and funding takfiri groups and sending them to the conflict-hit zones in the Arab and Muslim world, including Syria, Afghanistan and now in Yemen.
