The Yemeni government has renewed its warning of a major oil spill to the Red Sea because the Houthis militias who have blocked the maintenance of the crude oil tanker carrying more than one million barrels of crude oil.
The Yemeni Presidency of the Council of Ministers published an information video on its official Twitter account stating that marine life and riparian countries are at high risk in the case of a disaster happening.
Explained that the Government had repeatedly addressed the United Nations to put pressure on the Houthi militia to allow technical inspection and maintenance of the floating Safer tank at the Ras Issa port.
The video showed that the tank “Safar” is a huge tanker with a weight of 410 thousand tons, which includes more than one million barrels of crude oil, and has not been under maintenance for more than 4 years.
He also confirmed that the oil spill had already started due to the erosion of the reservoir.
He added that the United Nations sent in May a technical team to inspect the reservoir, but the Houthis obstructed their arrival.
Experts say that the oil in Hodeidah port and on SAFER CAN BE an economic and environmental catastrophe that may affect life not only in Yemen but also in neighboring countries if the crude oil stored in the ship leaks.
In March of last year, the Yemeni government issued warnings of the disaster and demanded that the United Nations intervene to conserve the dilapidated ship and mediate the export of the quantities stored in the ship, which is under the control of the Houthi militia.

Trump: We want Iran to leave Yemen

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday called on Iran to leave Yemen, reiterating that the United States is not seeking to change the regime but to work with it while stressing significant progress with Iran without giving details.
“Washington wants Iran to get out of Yemen,” Trump said at a cabinet meeting in the White House, referring to its support for the al-Houthi militia, which has taken over large parts of the country since 2014.
Houthi militias receive significant military support from Iran, and the Coalition to Support Legitimacy in Yemen has on several occasions demonstrated evidence of Iranian-made rockets and aircraft used by militias in Yemen.
“We want to work with them, not change the regime,” he said. Trump did not elaborate on progress, but US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at the meeting that Iran had said it was ready to negotiate its missile program, which Iran later denied.
Iran said on Tuesday its ballistic missile program was not negotiable. “Iran’s missiles … are absolutely impossible and under any circumstances to negotiate with anyone or any country,” Ali Reza Mir Yousuf, spokesman for the Iranian mission to the United Nations, told PRESS.
Tension has been on the rise since Trump withdrew last year from a nuclear deal signed by world powers in 2015 with Iran, in which it agreed to limit the level of uranium enrichment in return for lifting international sanctions that crippled its economy.
The European parties decided on Monday that the dispute mechanism set out in the agreement would not be implemented and that further talks are available to avoid any military a confrontation between the United States and Iran, but at the same time did not take any action to protect Iran from the sanctions imposed by Trump.

A Qatari Trojan horse to hit liberated Yemen

The successful security operation, which resulted in the seizure of Qatari weapons in the home of a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Yemeni province of Aden, revealed the efforts of the small Gulf state to strike stability in the liberated Yemeni cities through its brotherly arm, which is used as a Trojan horse in a number of Arab countries.


Aden police found weapons and ammunition bearing the emblems of the State of Qatar in one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s premises in the Directorate of Mualla in Aden province.


A security source said that the anti-terrorism team raided the home of the Brotherhood member RamizAl-Kamrani and found inside a sniper rifle and a quantity of Kalashnikov, ammunition and detonators, explosive devices and explosive belts.


The types of weapons indicate the nature of the mission assigned to the Brotherhood, according to security expert Ahmed al-Shihri.


“These weapons are not a supply of an organized force, but are militia weapons designed to carry out specific targeting operations such as the assassination of officials or acts of sabotage, such as bombings in government or civilian communities,”.


Al-Shihri said that the aim is to strike the security and stability in the city, which is a symbol of Yemeni legitimacy, in order to mix the papers to allow the organization of the Brotherhood to expand its influence.


The process of controlling the Qatari arms comes after several calls from security officials to the need to face the smuggling of national arms in Yemen.


Last October, Yemeni Interior Minister Hussein Arab confirmed Qatar’s role in supporting the coup militias and terrorist organizations in his country, amid reports of an alliance between the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda under the auspices of Doha.


Yemeni security sources reported that a tripartite alliance comprising the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda and its third pillar supported the country, and decided to carry out attacks against the security forces.


The sources confirmed that the security services monitored meetings in Shabwa and Abyan of the leaders of the brothers and other members of the al-Qaeda, in order to coordinate their work under the guidance of  Qatar against government forces.

UN appeals Sana’a court to review 30 death sentences

Houthis authorities in Yemen this week sentenced 30 men to death amid allegations that many were tortured during their three-year detention for political motives, the UN office said on Friday.
The office urged the Court of Appeal in the Sana’a capital, which is controlled by the Houthis to review the sentences and go for a fair trial.
The first specialized criminal court issued death sentences on Tuesday, said Rafina Shamdassani, spokeswoman for the Human Rights Office.
She added in a press statement that most of the 30 men are academics, students and politicians “associated with the reform party that criticizes the Huthis.” It was referring to the Islamic Reform Party, which is part of the Saudi-
backed government of President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi.
“At no stage did they have a suitable opportunity to present their defense,” she said.
Houthi officials have yet to respond to press request for comment.
According to Shamdassani, the men were arrested in 2016 and charged in April 2017 of belonging to an armed group planning attacks or assassinations targeting security personnel and members of the Huthi-related Popular Committees and providing information to the Yemeni government.
“There is a high probability that many of these charges are politically motivated, there are credible allegations of torture and ill-treatment, our teams have been able to talk to the detainee’s families,” she said.
“Any politically motivated charges and full compliance with international fair trial standards should be dropped,” she said.
In a statement this week, Amnesty International denounced what it described as a “mockery of justice” in a trial in which the 30 men faced “fabricated charges, including spying for the Saudi-led coalition.”
The London-based organization said one of the detainees,
Yusuf al-Bawab, a linguist and political figure who was held
in solitary confinement, was reportedly tortured and
deprived of legal advice and medical care.
