Signs of changing balance of power in Yemen!

2021/11/27 | interview, political, top news

Strategic Council Online—Interview: An expert of Middle East affairs says during the past several weeks the UAE and Saudi forces have withdrawn from the western areas of Yemen located along the shore of the Red Sea with al-Hudaydah Port being the main spot of this area—a port which is called the passage of commerce and main link path of the people of Yemen and Ansarollah to the outside world.

Jafar Qannad Bashi told the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations that Saudi and Emirati mercenaries and troops were trying to complete the siege on Yemen during the past several years with their presence in the Yemeni shores especially the al-Hudaydah Port.

“Analysts have offered various analyzes about the withdrawal of Emirati and Saudi forces,” Qannad Bashi said, noting that the withdrawal of Emirati and Saudi forces from the region has raised many questions about the situation in Yemen and the military developments in the region.

“Most analysts stressed that this retreat should be sought in the weakness of the coalition forces against the Yemeni army and the increase in the military capabilities of Ansarollah and the Yemeni People’s Committees. Some of these experts also point to the concerns of Saudi Arabia and the UAE about suffering more casualties in the western regions of Yemen, in other words, interpreting the Saudi coalition’s move as an escape from Ansarollah’s military operations.”

“In this regard, others believe that the military weaknesses of Saudi and Emirati mercenaries in this region of Yemen have caused a lot of pessimism between the two militant groups,” Qannad Bashi said, adding that differences among puppet groups of these two countries in Aden have resulted in the escalation of such pessimism.

He said that as a result, the emergence of a split between the military ranks has provided grounds for their weakness and escape from these areas.

According to him, some other analysts attribute this big and unexpected withdrawal to the rapid victories of the Ansarollah and Yemeni People’s Committees in Marib Province.

“This group of analysts believe that the Saudi and UAE coalition is trying to prevent the defeat of its affiliated militias in this strategic province in eastern Yemen by transferring militias based in al-Hudaydah Port and other coastal areas to Marib province.

In this case, the withdrawal of Saudi and Emirati mercenary militias from the west coast of Yemen and their deployment in the oil-rich province of Marib means greater concerns that are now on the minds of Riyadh and Abu Dhabi officials and their Western backers.

According to Qannad Bashi, US officials and even Zionist officials have repeatedly called the dominance of Ansarollah and Yemeni People’s Committees over Marib province a sign of Yemen’s complete victory in the six-and-a-half-year war.

“In the event of the imminent domination of Ansarollah and the Yemeni People’s Committees over the province and their aristocracy over oil resources, their need for imported fuels will be minimized, and therefore the measures related to the naval siege of Yemen will be ineffective in this regard.”

Asked about the other reasons behind the withdrawal of Saudi-led militia coalition from the Western coasts of Yemen, he said according to numerous reports, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have faced many difficulties in governing and dominating Yemen’s southern provinces in recent months, and have been unable to respond to strong popular protests.

“Meanwhile, the Ansarollah forces and the People’s Committees have managed to expand their dominance over the southern provinces over the past few months, and in addition to the astonishing victories in the province of Marib, they have also been in a very decisive and influential position in the overall military balance.”

He said what has been portrayed in the media as the subject of the retreat of Saudi and Emirati mercenaries is only part of the major decisive defeats suffered by Riyadh and Abu Dhabi in the battle of Yemen, and now that global protests against the human rights situation in Yemen have heightened. This has convinced the UAE and Saudi officials, as well as their Western backers, to end the war in Yemen as soon as possible.

“The two Arab countries are concerned that their withdrawal would not only mean a failure to achieve their goals in this war, but also fear that this withdrawal would mean the victory of Ansarollah and the People’s Committees in Yemen, thus paving the way for the establishment of an Islamic democratic system in Yemen along the western borders of Saudi Arabia”.
