Houthi militia curbs peace in Yemen for Iran

Houthi fighters from Yemen

The Houthi rebels are moving politically and militarily reversing the trend of peace in Yemen that has recently gained unprecedented momentum, a phenomenon that shows the direct reflection of their close association with the Iranian agenda, which is not the best path to solving conflicts peacefully and reducing tensions in the region.

Despite the financial and military fatigue of the rebel group and its definite need for peace, it appears forced to continue the war under pressure from Tehran.

The Houthi militia preceded the visit of UN Secretary-General’s Representative in Yemen, Martin Griffiths, on Sunday to the capital Sanaa under its control, with a barrage of rockets and a squadron of drones heading towards the west coast of Yemen.

There were strong signs of a peaceful solution

In Yemen, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman said last week that the kingdom was seeking a political settlement in Yemen and hoped the Riyadh agreement would open the door to broader peace talks, referring to a recent Saudi-sponsored agreement between the Southern Transitional Council and the government of President Abd Rabbo.

Griffith told the UN Security Council last Friday during his briefing on the situation in Yemen that there had been a significant reduction in the intensity of fighting in the country, up to 80 percent compared to what was previously.

In order to perpetuate the tension, they launched a rocket attack on the city of al-Mukha in western Yemen.

On Sunday, the Yemeni government condemned the Houthi group’s targeting of the government team’s residence in the Hudaydah Redeployment Coordination Committee.

US envoy Brian Hawk:The world must confront Iran ‘s Greater Strategy in Yemen!

yemen

US Special Envoy to Iran Brian Hawk warned of the dangers of Iranian expansion in the region, noting that Iran is seeking to reproduce the Lebanese experience in Yemen.

Hawk stressed that Iran should be prevented from consolidating its influence in Yemen, in parallel with restricting Iranian expansion in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq.

“The world must face Iran’s ambitions, otherwise the Iranian crescent will become a full moon,” Hawk said in an article in the Wall Street Journal.

The US warning comes to warn of the dangers of Iranian cross-border influence extending from Lebanon, Syria and Iraq to Yemen.

Hawk talked about the major game played by Tehran in Yemen, the “Lebanonization” of the country, ie the reproduction of the Lebanese experience.

Hawk proceeded from Iran’s support for the Hezbollah militia in Lebanon to explain his point of view. It began with the support of militant sectarian groups in the early 1980s, the most violent of which was later combined into a single organization called Hezbollah.

Thanks to Iran’s financially and militarily generous support, the party became a state within the state and served as Iran’s gateway to expand its influence in Lebanon.

The same game is played by Tehran today in Yemen, according to the US official: “Here, the Iranians had the upper hand in the outbreak of war they incited  the coup of Houthi militia.

In Hook’s view, Iran is using Yemen today to strengthen its regional standing. What is more dangerous is that it is using its alliance with the Houthis to threaten the arrival of a quarter of the world’s oil supplies by controlling the Straits of Bab al-Mandab and Hormuz.

Hawk, who has criticized his country’s poor media coverage of Iran’s role in prolonging the tragic conflict in Yemen, has come to the obvious conclusion: “Preventing Iran from establishing itself in Yemen is a necessity.”
