Al-Saud's Complete Failure in Yemen

Negotiations between Yemen and Saudi Arabia in the shadow of the silence of the international community and with the extravagance of Al-Saud can never be fruitful.

NOURNEWS - Five years after the start of the Saudi-led Arab League's attacks in Yemen at the request of the resigned prime minister, and now Al-Saud is facing a serious problem.

Over the years, there have been numerous negotiations between the Ansarullah movement in Yemen and the Saudi government as an aggressor, mediated by the United Nations and indirectly by Iran and Europe, each time failing because of Saudi Arabia's irrational stances.

In order to achieve its aggressive goals in Yemen, the Saudi army laid siege to Yemen, which met with a decisive response from Ansarullah. This swift and drastic response weakened the Saudi side's position in the political negotiations and reduced the possibility of reaching an agreement with Saudi Arabia due to its inability to induce its demands in the negotiations.

In contrast, Saudi Arabia sought military success in Yemen by increasing military pressure, which was initiated by Yemen, given Ansar al-Islam's significant military success.

The centers attacked by Yemen in Saudi Arabia often have a strategic position, including sensitive centers such as King Salman's base, the headquarters of the military intelligence service, and the headquarters of the Saudi Ministry of Defense, which is responsible for directing attacks on Yemen.

The Ansarullah attacks on Saudi Arabia sent important messages to the court of Al Saud, and especially to the United States, as the regime's main ally in these crimes, and that standing by Saudi Arabia could be dangerous for the United States.

In light of the situation in the United States and the upcoming presidential election in November, following Trump's successive political failures in the international arena, Trump has been trying to rebuild his political image over the past two months, and by pressuring Ansarullah to provide the conditions for an agreement with Saudi Arabia, was not achieved due to Saudi Arabia's refusal to lift the siege of Yemen.

Ansar al-Islam's recent attacks on Saudi Arabia, which are likely to escalate in the coming days, are seen as a result of the Saudi regime's and Mohammad bin Salman's misconduct in pursuing regional policies.

What is predictable is that the continued invasion of Yemen will not be of any benefit to the aggressors, because Yemen has never been dominated by any foreign power in history, so we expect to see the formation of a transitional government in Yemen soon.

However, the role of international organizations in the Yemeni issue, given the history of these organizations in regional and trans-regional crises and conflicts over the past 50 years, shows that these organizations have only been silent observers of the crimes of the powers that be, so there is no expectation. While these organizations act contrary to their inherent and determined role and do not help resolve the crisis, the fate of Yemen and Saudi Arabia on the battlefield will be determined.
