Yemeni women walk by the Palace of the Rock in Sanaa

SANAA, 16 Nov — The Executive Director of al-Afif Cultural Foundation, Abdul-Bari Taher Monday said in a statement to News Yemen website that “tolerance in Yemen is something we dearly miss,” adding “we are living in a society that destroys itself by hate, rancor, resentment and bigotry,” and called for “diagnosis of the Yemeni case.”  “Wars in Yemen are the outcome of smaller silent wars inside every house, mosque, and school and now and then these smaller wars express themselves in the form of bigger wars,” he said, adding “the society in Yemen is intolerant and awash with discrimination,” and voiced regret at what he called “the practice of intolerance by the ruling elite through the marginalization of others,” and warned against “the use of religion by the rulers for more control and domination of the masses.”  Dr. Afaf al-Himi said “the society in Yemen lacks tolerance towards women,” and criticized schools in the country for “spreading a culture of intolerance.”  She also blasted clerics for “spreading a message of intolerance, and discrimination especially towards women in their mosques.”

Historical city of Shibam in Hadramout

Historical city of Shibam in Hadramout

HADRAMOUT, 16 Nov — More than 20,000 people converged on the town of Taraba in Seyoun on Monday to discuss the implications of al-Qaeda attack on security officials in the region two weeks ago in which five top security officials were killed.  A number of leading clerics, and dignitaries from Hadramout were in the audience and demanded clarification on the attack warning “if the state fails to hold those behind the attack responsible and those who failed to take the wounded to the hospital accountable, the men of Hadramout will have their serious stand.”  Speaking in the rally, a number of social figures held the state “fully responsible for the cowardly terrorist attack that targeted the security leaders in Hadramout,” and denounced what they described “the state’s failure to catch the culprits,” adding “some think that Hadramout is the region of peace, civilization and that its people are law-abiders but this will change for Hadramout is not negative or coward and we won’t allow any party to tamper with the interests of the region and to spread corruption.”  Al-Qaeda wing in Yemen had claimed responsibility for the attack saying “it is in revenge for the killing of al-Qaiti and for the imprisonment of our brothers in Sanaa and Hadramout jails.”

Over 20,000 People in Hadramout Condemn al-Qaeda Attack

HADRAMOUT, 16 Nov — More than 20,000 people converged on the town of Taraba in Seyoun on Monday to discuss the implications of al-Qaeda attack on security officials in the region two weeks ago in which five top security officials were killed.  A number of leading clerics, and dignitaries from Hadramout were in the audience and demanded clarification on the attack warning “if the state fails to hold those behind the attack responsible and those who failed to take the wounded to the hospital accountable, the men of Hadramout will have their serious stand.”  Speaking in the rally, a number of social figures held the state “fully responsible for the cowardly terrorist attack that targeted the security leaders in Hadramout,” and denounced what they described “the state’s failure to catch the culprits,” adding “some think that Hadramout is the region of peace, civilization and that its people are law-abiders but this will change for Hadramout is not negative or coward and we won’t allow any party to tamper with the interests of the region and to spread corruption.”  Al-Qaeda wing in Yemen had claimed responsibility for the attack saying “it is in revenge for the killing of al-Qaiti and for the imprisonment of our brothers in Sanaa and Hadramout jails.”

U.S. ambassador to Yemen, Steven Seche addresses reporters in a news conference in Sanaa on Nov 16, 2009

SANAA, 16 Nov — The U.S. Ambassador to Yemen, Steven Seche Monday expressed concern over the government’s clampdown on journalism in Yemen and reiterated his country’s support of freedom of expression.  Seche who was speaking during a press conference organized by the Female Journalists Forum said “growing violations against citizens especially reporters fall back on the legitimacy of the ruling regimes as citizens are part of the system,” adding “it is essential in any society, in particular democratic societies for ordinary citizens like the ones in this hall to participate in the life of their societies.  Regimes get their power and legitimacy from the participation of their citizens.”  He voiced concern over the suspension of a number of newspapers in Yemen saying “we are concerned about the suspension of some newspapers like al-Masder and al-Ayyam because of topics they publish and we are also concerned over the disappearance of some journalists like Muhammad al-Maqaleh and the court sentences against some newspapers and reporters.”  “We appreciate and respect the work of al-Ayyam newspaper and what it provides to its readers in the south and the country as a whole and we consider al-Ayyam as an example of the level of dissatisfaction it created with some officials,” he said, adding “Yemen is facing difficult and serious challenges and the absence of free and responsible press is part of these challenges.”  He advised the government to “solve the problems instead of charging journalists,” and in a reply to a question if the US would pressure the government in Yemen to cease crackdown on the media, he said “we will not use pressure on the government but we encourage the government to allow the press to move freely and provide information for people so they can make decisions about their lives.”

HAJJA, 16 Nov — Saudi fighter jets Monday night bombed a number of targets near the port of Midi in Hajja, the Islamist website, Alsahwa said quoting sources at Yemen’s coastguard in Midi.  The sources said “the air strikes hit targets in Yemen’s Small Ashaq island near the Saudi Large Ashaq island,” adding “the shelling hit some areas near the island of Midi and intelligence officers from the Political Security Organization and military intelligence rushed to the scene to investigate.”  A number of Yemeni fishermen in Midi told reporters they heard explosions near their boats and voiced fear they could be targeted and appealed to the Yemeni government to ask Saudis to be careful saying “we are merely fishermen trying to make a living and we have women and children to look after.”  Meanwhile, the independent news website, News Yemen Monday quoted the head of the local council in Midi, Taha al-Atas as saying “two fighter jets fired a number of missiles at the back end of Midi port and also fired near fishing boats,” adding “one of the jets came from the south and the other came from the north but no human or material damage was inflicted.”  Saudi navy had announced it is monitoring the Yemeni port of Midi to prevent arms supplies from reaching the rebels.

  2. Its great to read that Charlie Sheen could be returning to our screens after being removed from Two and a Half Men. He was fired in March after a string of outbursts about the show’s producers. Sheen was once America’s highest earning TV actor making a reported $2m per episode . The 45-year-old star is suing Warner Brothers studios for $100 million for breach of contract after Two and a Half Men was terminated for the rest of the season. His new starring role will be a part in a pilot for Anger Management, a series based on the 2003 Hollywood film of the same name. Lets hope the new series bring nominations for numerous awards, including Emmys and Golden Globes as Two and a Half Men did.

SADAA, 16 Nov — In a statement to the Kuwaiti al-Watan newspaper, field commander of the Zaydi Shiite rebels in north Yemen, Abdul-Malik al-Huthi Monday denied reports the rebels are receiving aid from fellow Shiites in Kuwait.  He said “the Huthis are Arabs and Muslims and our affiliation is not bound to a certain ideology or a state,” adding “the regime in Yemen is exploiting ideological differences for political gains.”  On their demands, he said “all we want is for aggression to stop and for a halt to destruction and killings and we want an opportunity for intellectual freedom and expression,” and stressed “we have no ties or coordination with al-Qaeda and there is cultural and practical differences with them,” adding “al-Qaeda is an instrument for Zionist intelligence agencies.”  “The war is not only in Sadaa but has affected all the people of Yemen in the northern governorates but its ferocity varies from one region to another,” he added.  Meanwhile, his brother, Yahya al-Huthi who lives in exile in Germany Monday welcomed the statement of the Iranian Consultative Council which blasted what it called “Saudi aggression and killings of innocent people in Yemen.”  He said “the Saudi aggression came to assist its agent regime in Sanaa in order to protect it and prevent it from stopping the war,” adding “we have called for dialogue with the Saudis but their response was arrogant.”

SANAA, 15 Nov — Speaking at the opening of a 2-day seminar organized by the Ministry of Information to review successes and failures of journalism in Yemen, Information Minister Hassan al-Lawzi Sunday said “the number of newspapers in Yemen has reached 400 in addition to 22 other newspapers owned by political parties and civil society organizations,” and unveiled plans to publish a daily government newspaper in Hadramout at the end of this month.  He said his ministry is “keen to implement the Journalism law in order to protect journalism from parasites,” stressing “the law helps journalism in Yemen and protects it from diverting into a crocked discourse,” adding “spreading hate and discrimination is prohibited in all laws and pre-censorship on newspapers in Yemen is long gone,” stressing “neither me nor employees at my ministry would ever be involved in pre-censorship and words no longer intimidate us.”  “Freedom of expression must be bounded by respecting others and two days ago we confiscated a newspaper because it defamed an opposition figure not a state official because we are determined to preserve peoples’ dignities and reputations.”  He said his ministry “doesn’t ban publication permissions but some permissions are delayed for necessary considerations,” and vowed to “stand by journalists who were attacked,” and hailed what he described as “one of the greatest accomplishment of democracy in Yemen is press freedom.”

  1. Thanks, I’ve been reading a lot of similar articles lately.

  2. Many thanks for sharing these types of wonderful blogposts. In addition, the optimal travel as well as medical insurance strategy can often relieve those concerns that come with travelling abroad. A medical emergency can soon become costly and that’s bound to quickly put a financial stress on the family finances. Setting up in place the ideal travel insurance package prior to leaving is worth the time and effort. Thanks a lot

alialnsi1SANAA, 14 Nov — Head of the National Security Agency (NSA) and President Saleh’s advisor, Ali Mohammed al-Ansi Saturday said “Iran and some Shiite groups in Arab countries are supporting the Huthi rebels in north Yemen,” adding “the rebels thought they were strong and refused to respect any of the signed agreements.”  Al-Ansi who was speaking to the French La Monde said “we accepted the Qatari mediation because we are seeking peace but at the end all the victims are Yemenis,” and accused the rebels of “trying to internationalize the situation because it serves their interests,” stressing “there will be no new mediations.”  He said “some Iranian diplomates are supporting the rebels in this war while the Iranian media outlets are backing them,” asking “what are the activities of the Iranian diplomates in Yemen?”  “Shiite groups in Bahrain, Kuwait and UAE are assisting the rebels but the Iranian support of the rebels dates back to before the war.  In the 80ties, Hussein al-Huthi and his father, Bader al-Din were in the Iranian city of Qum and after that they adopted the Iranian slogans such as death to America, death to Israel,” he said, but ruled out Yemen might cut diplomatic ties with Iran.  In a reply to a question wether President Saleh is grooming his son, Ahmad Ali to succeed him in power, he said “I swear the President doesn’t hope so,” and urged Iran to “stop interfering in the internal affairs of Yemen,” and admitted “the regime in Yemen made mistakes in the past but they were rectified.”

SANAA, 14 Nov — Head of the National Security Agency (NSA) and President Saleh’s advisor, Ali Mohammed al-Ansi Saturday said “Iran and some Shiite groups in Arab countries are supporting the Huthi rebels in north Yemen,” adding “the rebels thought they were strong and refused to respect any of the signed agreements.”  Al-Ansi who was speaking to the French La Monde said “we accepted the Qatari mediation because we are seeking peace but at the end all the victims are Yemenis,” and accused the rebels of “trying to internationalize the situation because it serves their interests,” stressing “there will be no new mediations.”  He said “some Iranian diplomates are supporting the rebels in this war while the Iranian media outlets are backing them,” asking “what are the activities of the Iranian diplomates in Yemen?”  “Shiite groups in Bahrain, Kuwait and UAE are assisting the rebels but the Iranian support of the rebels dates back to before the war.  In the 80ties, Hussein al-Huthi and his father, Bader al-Din were in the Iranian city of Qum and after that they adopted the Iranian slogans such as death to America, death to Israel,” he said, but ruled out Yemen might cut diplomatic ties with Iran.  In a reply to a question wether President Saleh is grooming his son, Ahmad Ali to succeed him in power, he said “I swear the President doesn’t hope so,” and urged Iran to “stop interfering in the internal affairs of Yemen,” and admitted “the regime in Yemen made mistakes in the past but they were rectified.”

SANAA, 15 Nov — The defense ministry website, 26-September Sunday said military units recaptured territory from the Zaydi Shiite rebels in Sadaa while warplanes struck rebels positions in Harf Sufian amid reports of troops reinforcement moving from Sanaa to combat zone in north Yemen.  Saudi TV reported that Saudi special forces units are continuing mop-up operations in the region of mount al-Dukhan along the border with Yemen, and added a number of Shiite rebels were captured.  Meanwhile, the rebels Sunday repeated claims of Saudi shelling of Yemeni villages but the Yemeni government denied that Saudi jets attacked targets inside its territories, describing such rebel claims as fabricated, false and baseless.  The rebels also claimed they had launched an attack Sunday on a Saudi military base in Jizan to “avenge the deaths of civilians killed in the artillery and air strikes.”  “After more than eight days from the start of Saudi artillery attacks and air strikes on civilians in Yemeni territory, today we attacked Ain Al-Harra military base with Katyusha rockets and fires were seen in that base,” the rebels said in a statement, adding “the Saudi regime should review its belligerent position towards the Yemeni people who refuse injustice.”

TEHRAN, 15 Nov — Members of the Iranian Islamic Consultative Assembly [Majilis] Sunday condemned what they described as “Saudi brutal massacres of Muslims in Yemen.” A statement signed by 250 Iranian lawmakers said “we as the representatives of the Islamic Consultative Assembly and the signers of this statement condemn the cruel killing of Muslims in Yemen and we want all sympathetic officials in the Islamic world as well as the Islamic groupings and organizations, particularly the Organization of Islamic Conference, to utilize all their potential to stop this tragedy and put an end to the killings,” adding “at a time the Zionist regime, under the auspices of some powers like the United States, is explicitly denying Palestinians’ rights, Muslims should defend the oppressed Islamic nations. And what is more shocking and reprehensible is the cruel attacks against Muslims in Yemen.” “Killing Yemeni people by Saudi Arabian fighter jets is only benefiting Islam’s enemies,” said the statement. Meanwhile, the Iranian parliament speaker, Ali Larijani Sunday lambasted Saudi Arabia for attacking the rebels saying “how could they kill innocent people during the Haj season?” adding “the United States is probably involved in the military campaign and this is not acceptable.”

SANAA, 10 Nov – Saudi Assistant Minister for Defense and Aviation, Prince Khalid Bin Sultan bin Abdul-Aziz Tuesday said Saudi Arabia would continue its offensive against Yemeni rebels until they retreat, adding “we will not stop the air strikes until they retreat tens of kilometers away from the Saudi border.”  Prince Khalid said in a statement to the London-based Saudi-owned al-Arabiya TV that the kingdom “has fully secured its border against rebel incursions,” but the rebels said in a statement on their website they had taken full control of the border district of Qatabar where most of the fighting occurred between them and Saudi forces and accused Saudi fighter jets of bombing Yemeni villages killing two women and wounding a child.  The insurgents have accused Saudi Arabia of allowing the Yemeni army to use its territory as a base to launch attacks against them and threatened to respond.  Meanwhile, the Yemeni coastguard Tuesday said it is conducting surveillance operations of the Island of Midi to prevent Huthi rebels from escaping to neighboring countries.

SANAA, 09 Nov – The UN World Food Programme (WFP) Monday said since mid-August it delivered food aid to nearly 100,000 people displaced over the past five years of fighting between government forces and Shiite rebels in north Yemen.   According to a press statement by Maria Santamarina, a WFP reports and advocacy official in Sanaa “the WFP and its implementing partners have provided regular food assistance to 53,956 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Sadaa governorate, 25,543 in Hajjah, 5,831 in Amran and 3,346 in al-Jawf since the outbreak of renewed clashes on 12 August.”  A recent report by the UN refugee agency estimates the total number of IDPs in northern Yemen to have increased to 175,000 due to ongoing clashes.  Meanwhile, the United Nations refugee agency Tuesday repeated calls for safe humanitarian access to internally displaced persons fleeing the fighting between government forces and Shiite rebels in north Yemen.  Spokesperson of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Andrej Mahecic said in a news conference in Geneva: “We again appeal for the protection of civilians and secure and unhindered access for humanitarian workers to deliver much needed assistance,” and voiced concern over the recent escalation in fighting.  The agency said over the past few days some 2,000 IDPs arrived at al-Mazraq refugee camp in Hajjah and estimated some 175,000 people have been affected by the conflict in north Yemen which first erupted in 2004.  The UNHCR-run al-Mazrak camp, now hosting some 8,700 IDPs, has been reorganized and extended to accommodate the new arrivals, while another 11,000 IDPs are sheltered by host families and communities.  The agency said over the weekend it airlifted a shipment of emergency relief items from its emergency stockpile in Dubai including large tents and prefabricated warehouses to Yemen to help improve aid delivery.

Displaced families are seen in their tents in al-Mazraq refugee camp near the northwestern Yemeni province of Saada October 9, 2009. Every day scores of Yemeni civilians straggle into this scorching, sandblown camp near the Saudi border, fleeing battles raging between the army and Shi’ite rebels in northern Yemen for the past two months. U.N. agencies say the conflict has displaced about 150,000 Yemenis since it first flared in 2004, but limited access to the war zone means they have no clear idea how many have fled their homes since the army began a major offensive on August 11.

SHABWA, 10 Nov – An alleged suicide bombing car blew up early Tuesday near the premises of an oil company in the area of Harad in the district of Arma in Shabwa, the ministry of interior press centre said.  Local sources told the independent news website, Marib Press “the explosives-laden Land Cruiser vehicle was intended to attack an oil company operating in the area.”  No casualties were reported and the online statement of the press centre said “explosives and gas cylinders were inside the car,” adding “investigation is underway and a military team of explosives experts has been dispatched to the area.”  Security authorities in Shabwa sent a team to investigate amid conflicting reports the car blew up by a desert road near the region of al-Aqla in Arma.  In other news, al-Yemen newspaper Tuesday said “al-Qaeda leader in Yemen, Naser al-Wahishi is planning to make a video to retract his earlier support of the southern separatist movement,” adding “al-Wahishi’s move came after an agreement with Islamist separatist leader, Tariq al-Fadhli and designed to reduce pressure on the separatists after they were accused of links to al-Qaeda,” amid reports al-Fadhli has offered al-Qaeda militants a parcel of land he owns in Abyan for their training exercises.

SANAA, 13 Nov — President Saleh’s son and Commander of the Special and Republican forces, Colonel Ahmad Ali Thursday lashed at what he dubbed “rumormongers and merchants of cheap snoop who seek to spread turbulence amid the ranks of the armed forces in order to target the national unity,” and warned “under the auspices of President Saleh, the armed and security forces will face their diabolical plots no matter what the cost might be.”  Sheik Hamid al-Ahmar last week told al-Jazeera TV the Republican Guards are supporting the Shiite rebels in north Yemen and providing them with weapons in a bid to weaken President Saleh’s half brother, General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar.  “The military and security forces are operating with the spirit of one team and reports of divisions among the commanders are untrue and those who spread such false allegations only bring out the rancor and hate harbored by their sick souls,” Ahmad Ali was quoted by the defense ministry online website, 26-September, adding “the armed and security forces are fully aware of diabolical plots hatched against them and will confront them.”

Sheik al-Fadhli speaking during a tribal meeting last month in Abyan

SANAA, 13 Nov — The Ministry of Interior Friday issued a stern warning to Islamist leader in Abyan, Sheik Tariq al-Fadhli saying “he won’t be allowed to turn the governorate of Abyan into a stronghold for al-Qaeda network,” and stressed “terrorists will be hunt down.”  The ministry’s warning was published on its Press Centre website and said “al-Fadhli has become an umbrella for terror elements from al-Qaeda network and other outlaws in Abyan,” adding “latest sabotage and security breaches indicate the involvement of elements affiliated with al-Fadhli.”  “No one will be allowed to tamper with security and stability,” said the statement, adding “anarchists, saboteurs and terrorists will be hunt down.” Clashes between security and al-Qaeda suspects last week in Abyan claimed several lives including al-Wasat journalist, Ahmad al-Hidari.  The defense ministry online website, 26-September Friday accused “al-Fadhli’s outlaws,” for killing al-Hidari saying “they fired rocket-propelled grenades at security soldiers and killed journalist al-Hidari who was on the roof of a house.”  Other reports said he was killed by a stray bullet.

SANAA, 14 Nov — Member of Parliament Foud Dahaba Saturday criticized the Parliament in Yemen dubbing it “expensive and useless,” adding “the Parliament in Yemen cannot do anything.”  Dahaba who was speaking at a seminar held in Sanaa to review a study prepared by Sanaa University Professor, Dr. Muhammad Noman on harmony between Yemeni laws with international laws said “since we import everything, we might as well import a Parliament from China for it would be cheaper and more beneficial.”  Dr. Noman said “there are contradictions between the Yemeni laws and international treaties Yemen has signed especially in the field of transparency, freedoms, and human rights,” and called for revising the laws in Yemen to match international pacts and treaties.  He criticized “chains and red lines imposed by the state on civil liberties,” saying “the regime puts implicit and explicit chains in the laws.  For instance, the 1990 Journalism and Publications Law punishes journalists for publishing information which means the state wants journalists to turn into secret keepers.”  Director of the Change Organization, MP Ahmad Saef Hashed voiced regret at the “low level freedoms in Yemen have succumbed to,” adding “freedoms in Yemen are trampled on with impunity.”  Political Science teacher at Sanaa University, Dr. Muhammad al-Dahari said “freedoms are taken not granted and we need to have citizens that can snatch their freedoms.”

YEMEN/SANAA, 14 Nov — Foreign Minister Abu-Baker al-Qirbi Saturday said Yemeni intelligence agencies are investigating “the involvement of non-official Iranian individuals in supporting Shiite rebels in north Yemen.”  He talked about Iranian media support of the rebels and said “Iran understands that it would never allow any group to raise arms inside its territories,” adding “by backing the insurgents, the Iranian media did not think of Iran’s interests and I told the Iranian foreign minister that Yemen wants a change in the stand of the Iranian media.”  “Yemen did not ask for the help of the United States in facing the Huthi gang of terrorism,” al-Qirbi said, adding “cooperation between Yemen and the United States is related to combating terrorism.”  The state official news agency, Saba late last week reported Yemen signed a military cooperation agreement with the United States but the US embassy in Sanaa denied the report saying “only the minutes of a meeting between US and Yemeni officials was signed,” and al-Qirbi said “the United States, Europe, the Gulf states and Arab countries all of them confirmed support of Yemen’s security and stability because everyone knows that the security of Yemen can affect the entire region.”  He described the rebels infiltration into Saudi territories as “an intrusion and I think they will pay dearly for that,” but he said “the geographical nature of the border area with the kingdom makes it difficult to establish complete security however coordination and cooperation in the future will put things in their proper place.”  On the economy, he said “after the unification and the defeat of the separatists, the state was hoping to focus its efforts on development and institutions but unfortunately and because of many reasons, chief among them the economy, the government’s plans were hampered out.”

    Thanks for the helpful posting. It is also my belief that mesothelioma has an very long latency interval, which means that the signs of the disease won’t emerge right until 30 to 50 years after the 1st exposure to asbestos. Pleural mesothelioma, that is certainly the most common type and has an effect on the area across the lungs, might cause shortness of breath, chest muscles pains, including a persistent coughing, which may bring on coughing up blood vessels.

SANAA, 14 Nov — In a press conference in the capital, Sanaa, the opposition committee of national dialogue Saturday repeated its call for an immediate halt to the war in north Yemen and expressed “deep concern over the serious developments in the war.”  A statement by the committee at the end of the conference blamed what it described as “the wrong policies of the regime and its insistence on using force to resolve crises that led Saudi Arabia to enter the war,” and urged “the brethren in Saudi Arabia and all friends and parties concerned about Yemen’s security and stability to boost national efforts aimed at resolving Yemen’s problems and crises through dialogue,” adding “a serious national dialogue that does not exclude anyone would help achieve historical and comprehensive settlement that would preserve Yemen’s integrity, sovereignty, unity, security and stability.”  The statement held “the regime fully responsible for preserving the nation’s sovereignty and for the implications of any infringements on Yemen’s sovereignty,” and accused the regime of “nonchalance, indifference and extortion in dealing with regional and international relations,” warning “Yemen could turn into a battlefield for regional and international conflicts,” stressing “the erroneous policies of the regime are responsible for creating and feeding all of the country’s crises and could open the door for more evil.”

Between me personally and my hubby we’ve owned or operated more CD players in the past than I will count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last couple of years I’ve settled as a result of one distinctive line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover exactly how well-designed along with fun to use the underappreciated (and also widely mocked) Zunes are generally.

SADAA, 07 Nov – Zaydi Shiite rebels fighting government forces in north Yemen Saturday said in a statement on their website “Saudi warplanes and artillery shelled the district of al-Malahid and neighboring villages inside Yemen,” adding “the Saudi military outpost of mount al-Ramah continue to open fire randomly at Yemeni territories.”  But Saudi officials said their military action has been limited to inside its own borders, targeting fighters who have crossed into its territory.  Other reports said seven Saudi nationals including four civilian women and an unknown number of rebels had been killed in sporadic clashes on Saturday amid news the insurgents had infiltrated the Saudi border villages of al-Qarn, Qawa and al-Dafeneyah.  The fighting between the rebels and Saudi forces first erupted on Tuesday when the rebels attacked a Saudi border post killing one soldier and wounding 11 others but the Zaydi rebels said the Saudis started the fight by helping the Yemeni army claiming they repulsed a Saudi cross-border assault on Friday and captured a number of soldiers, vehicles, supplies and weapons.

SADAA, 07 Nov – Zaydi Shiite rebels fighting government forces in north Yemen Saturday said in a statement on their website “Saudi warplanes and artillery shelled the district of al-Malahid and neighboring villages inside Yemen,” adding “the Saudi military outpost of mount al-Ramah continue to open fire randomly at Yemeni territories.”  But Saudi officials said their military action has been limited to inside its own borders, targeting fighters who have crossed into its territory.  Other reports said seven Saudi nationals including four civilian women and an unknown number of rebels had been killed in sporadic clashes on Saturday amid news the insurgents had infiltrated the Saudi border villages of al-Qarn, Qawa and al-Dafeneyah.  The fighting between the rebels and Saudi forces first erupted on Tuesday when the rebels attacked a Saudi border post killing one soldier and wounding 11 others but the Zaydi rebels said the Saudis started the fight by helping the Yemeni army claiming they repulsed a Saudi cross-border assault on Friday and captured a number of soldiers, vehicles, supplies and weapons.

SHABWA, 07 Nov – Speaking to hundreds of state officials, and foreign investors gathered in the southern port of Belhaf for the inauguration of Yemen’s first liquefied natural gas export, President Ali Abdullah Saleh Saturday said the war with the Shiite rebels in north Yemen “just started two days ago and what has been happening in the past six years was just training for the army units so that the troops can get accustomed to the topography of the area,” stressing “the war will never stop no matter how much money or martyrs it costs” adding “there will be no let up in the battle until we bring this traitorous and mercenary group to an end.”  “Not everyone fighting is a Huthi rebel but there are settlements of old scores,” Saleh said, adding “whoever has a problem with the state wants to take it out by rebellion as is the case in the southern regions and when personal demands are rejected, some declare their support of the southern movement.  This is extortion and irresponsibility.”  At the inaugural, Saleh thanked the people of Shabwa and Marib and described the people of Marib as “the progeny of civilization and history.”  He talked about plans to establish an industrial area in Belhaf saying “Belhaf was a small fishing village and now with this strategic giant project will become one of the biggest cities,” and unveiled plans to build petrochemical factories that “will create many new jobs.”

    Thanks for the interesting things you have unveiled in your post. One thing I would like to reply to is that FSBO interactions are built over time. By bringing out yourself to owners the first saturday their FSBO is actually announced, prior to a masses start calling on Monday, you create a good connection. By giving them equipment, educational supplies, free reports, and forms, you become a great ally. By subtracting a personal desire for them and also their circumstances, you build a solid link that, on most occasions, pays off in the event the owners decide to go with a representative they know and also trust — preferably you actually.

  2. What i do not realize is actually how you’re not actually much more well-liked than you might be now. You’re very intelligent. You realize thus significantly relating to this subject, produced me personally consider it from so many varied angles. Its like women and men aren’t fascinated unless it is one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs nice. Always maintain it up!

SADAA, 06 Nov — Zaydi Shiite rebels battling government forces in north Yemen announced late Friday they repelled a Saudi offensive against their position near al-Dukhan mountain and arrested a number of Saudi soldiers. The rebel group spokesperson, Muhammad Abdul-Salam said “pictures showing the Saudi prisoners and weapons we seized will be shown soon,” adding “the Saudi prisoners will be treated with respect and dignity.” A statement published on the rebels website said “a number of Saudi soldiers, and Saudi hummer vehicles were seized during the early hours of the Saudi intrusion into Yemeni territory,” and warned the Saudi regime against “the continuation of its aggression and violation of Yemen’s sovereignty,” adding “the Saudis will lose this gamble.” Other reports said the insurgents launched a surprising attack on a Saudi border centre on Friday wounding five Saudi soldiers amid news 50 Shiite rebels were captured by Saudi forces. Last week, the rebels infiltrated into Jabal al-Dukan located in Saudi territories and killed a Saudi border soldier while Saudi authorities announced they hit back at Yemeni insurgents for breaching the kingdom’s border. The kingdom’s warplanes and artillery Friday continued for the third straight day to bomb rebels’ positions in Jabal al-Dukhan, the Saudi official press agency said on Friday, adding “the operations would go on until Saudi territory was cleansed of any hostile element.” Meanwhile, the defense ministry website, 26-September quoted Yemeni military officials as denying reports by the rebel that Saudi air strikes had hit targets inside Yemen dubbing the reports “false and fabrication.”

Son of President Saleh and Commander of the Special Operations and Republican Guards, Ahmad Ali Saleh talks to Jordanian King Abdullah II at the opening of the Special Operations Forces Exhibition (SOFEX) on April 01, 2008 near Amman

SANAA, 07 Nov – Tribal leader and business tycoon, Sheik Hamid Abdullah al-Ahmar late Friday accused the Republican Guards of supporting the Shiite rebels in previous wars. He said “the Yemeni army is no longer capable of ending the war in north Yemen militarily because it lost trust in the political leadership in Yemen which plays around with peoples’ lives.” Al-Ahmar who was speaking to the Doha-based al-Jazeera satellite TV channel said “the Republican Guards headed by the President’s son supported the Shiite rebels in north Yemen in order to hit the First Artillery military division led by Brigadier General Ali Mohsen Al-Ahmar and hence get rid of him,” adding “a rebel leader is a friend of the President’s son, Ahmad Ali Abdullah Saleh.” Ali Mohsen is President Saleh’s half brother and al-Ahmar talked about “internal conflict between the various wings inside the army about the war in Sadaa,” and called on President Saleh to visit Abyan or Sadaa “in order to prove to us that he is still the President of all of Yemen,” adding “the President no longer has a state to rule.” “The state no longer exists except in the Presidential Palace and in the capital, Sanaa which is protected by 60 thousand troops,” Al-Ahmar said, adding “dialogue is the only hope to bring Yemen out of this situation,” stressing “dialogue with everyone is still possible to resolve the current crisis in Yemen.” He accused President Saleh of “wanting to turn the country into a monarchy through his pursuit to install his son in power,” and renewed his call for the President to step down, stressing “changing the head is the door to reforming the situations in Yemen.” “If President Saleh wants the people to stand by him against monarchism, then he should first get rid of his monarchy and if he wants people to stand by him to protect the nation’s unity, then he has to prove his patriotism by lifting injustice,” he said, and criticized the management of the war in north Yemen saying “the way this war is run has humiliated the army and caused it to lose its fighting moral.”

SHABWA, 06 Nov — Yemen celebrates today the exports of its first shipment of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Belhaf plant to South Korea, the state official news agency, Saba reported. The shipment is estimated at 149 thousand cubit meters of LNG and would be transported by a Korean tanker. Another cargo of about 160 thousand cubit meters will be transported by a Yemeni tanker owned by the Yemen LNG Company. Minister of Oil and Mineral Resources, Amir Salam al-Aidrous said “without the nation’s unity and stability and without President Saleh’s support, the project would not have been possible,” adding “this $4.0 billion project is a clear message to the world that Yemen is the land of investment opportunities.” “The initial exports will focus on Europe and Asia taking into account the world market priorities. China and India are expected to be a focus in the second half of 2010 when the second train of production starts with 90 percent of the project capacity,” said the oil minister. President Ali Abdullah Saleh, managers of oil companies and senior state officials are expected at the launch of the ceremony today. The French Total Company is the main shareholder in the project with 39.62 percent and the other shareholders include the US Hunt Oil Company with 17.22 percent, the Yemen LNG Company with 16.73 percent, the Social Insurance and Salary Authority with 5 percent, the S. Korean SK Corporation with 9.55 percent, the S. Korean Gas Corporation KOGAS with 6 percent and the Hyundai Company with 5.88 percent.

The car after crashing into the lorry

HADRAMOUT, 05 Nov — Security chief in Hadramout, Colonel Ali Salem al-Amari, head of the Political Security Organization (PSO) in Seyoun, Colonel Ahmad Ba-Wazier, head of the Criminal Office in Ghil Ba-Wazier, Mahdi Ba-Kouir, deputy security head in the city of al-Qatn, and two others were killed in an ambush on Monday afternoon in the eastern province of Hadramout.  The men were in their way back to Seyoun from a visit to a border crossing with Saudi Arabia when their convoy came under a hail of bullets at Kashm al-Ayn outpost in Seyoun.  Al-Amari and Ba-Wazir were in the same car and eyewitnesses said their car swerved and collided with a coming lorry, the independent online website, Marib Press reported, adding “their car and the lorry owned by a businessman from Marib went up in flames and their bodies were charred.”  Al-Qaeda is believed to be behind the attack and eyewitnesses said “the gunmen seized one of the cars that were travelling with the convoy and veered off to an unknown place.”  Al-Qaeda in Yemen has recently announced its merger with the Saudi branch to form the al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula or AQAP and has threatened to target Yemeni officials.  “A security official blamed al-Qaeda in Yemen for the ambush,” said Marib Press.  Meanwhile, head of the Political Security Organization (PSO) in the eastern province of Hadramout, Abdullah al-Jaliza Tuesday told the independent online news website, al-Tagheer late on Tuesday: “The death of the head of the PSO in Wadi Hadramout, Ahmad Ba-Wazir and the security chief, Ali al-Amari came as a result of an assassination operation and not a traffic accident,” adding “al-Qaeda carried out the operation through an ambush set up by a group of armed al-Qaeda operatives in the area of Kashm al-Ayn in the District of al-Abr in Hadramout.  They fired an array of bullets at the car where Ba-Wazir and al-Amari were travelling and caused their death and the death of two of their escorts.”  “Such operations are adopted by al-Qaeda and it alone is targeting security officials and security installations in Hadramout and elsewhere,” he said.

HADRAMOUT, 05 Nov — Security chief in Hadramout, Colonel Ali Salem al-Amari, head of the Political Security Organization (PSO) in Seyoun, Colonel Ahmad Ba-Wazier, head of the Criminal Office in Ghil Ba-Wazier, Mahdi Ba-Kouir, deputy security head in the city of al-Qatn, and two others were killed in an ambush on Monday afternoon in the eastern province of Hadramout.  The men were in their way back to Seyoun from a visit to a border crossing with Saudi Arabia when their convoy came under a hail of bullets at Kashm al-Ayn outpost in Seyoun.  Al-Amari and Ba-Wazir were in the same car and eyewitnesses said their car swerved and collided with a coming lorry, the independent online website, Marib Press reported, adding “their car and the lorry owned by a businessman from Marib went up in flames and their bodies were charred.”  Al-Qaeda is believed to be behind the attack and eyewitnesses said “the gunmen seized one of the cars that were travelling with the convoy and veered off to an unknown place.”  Al-Qaeda in Yemen has recently announced its merger with the Saudi branch to form the al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula or AQAP and has threatened to target Yemeni officials.  “A security official blamed al-Qaeda in Yemen for the ambush,” said Marib Press.  Meanwhile, head of the Political Security Organization (PSO) in the eastern province of Hadramout, Abdullah al-Jaliza Tuesday told the independent online news website, al-Tagheer late on Tuesday: “The death of the head of the PSO in Wadi Hadramout, Ahmad Ba-Wazir and the security chief, Ali al-Amari came as a result of an assassination operation and not a traffic accident,” adding “al-Qaeda carried out the operation through an ambush set up by a group of armed al-Qaeda operatives in the area of Kashm al-Ayn in the District of al-Abr in Hadramout.  They fired an array of bullets at the car where Ba-Wazir and al-Amari were travelling and caused their death and the death of two of their escorts.”  “Such operations are adopted by al-Qaeda and it alone is targeting security officials and security installations in Hadramout and elsewhere,” he said.

Yemen’s latest assault on Shi’ite rebels in the north seems unlikely to end a conflict that has flickered for five years and inflicted thousands of casualties. It may only deepen instability in an impoverished country also struggling with southern separatists, al Qaeda militants and a disastrous mismatch between fast-depleting oil and water resources and explosive population growth, analysts say.

Civilian victim of a previous airstrike in north Yemen

SADAA, 30 Oct — At least 31 civilians, mostly women and children were killed Thursday in an airstrike on the northern war-torn district of Razeh in Sadaa.  The rebel group spokesperson, Muhammad Abdul-Salam condemned what he dubbed “the massacre,” saying “government warplanes are targeting civilians and this constitutes a war crime.”  “More than 7 sorties bombed the entire village of Sadan al-Farq in the area of Bani al-Nadir,” Abdul-Salam told the independent news website, News Yemen in a phone conversation late on Thursday, adding “women and children are still under the rubble, 31 bodies were pulled out while 20 others were wounded,” stressing “this is a disaster and will have its consequences.”  He said the rebels were “willing to facilitate access of journalists and organizations to the area.  We want to show them the implications of the war crimes perpetrated by the state and we will guarantee their safety.” In other news, the mouthpiece of Yemen’s Socialist Party (YSP), Aleshteraki website Friday quoted “trusted sources,” as saying “President Saleh has asked the head of a state-sponsored committee setup to investigate the killing of 88 civilians in Harf Sufian last month to change the outcome of the investigation,” adding “the President asked him to claim the dead were Huthi rebels.”  The civilians were believed to have been killed in military airstrikes.  Meanwhile, the military Thursday announced the control of “the rebels last stronghold in al-Haska mountain in addition to six other outposts used by the insurgents,” the military online website, 26-September said quoting a military source.  “Security agencies captured 18 rebels in the city of Sadaa while six other rebels were killed,” it added.

Leaders of Yemen opposition alliance, the JMP, address a news conference in Sanaa on October 29, 2009

SANAA, 30 Oct — In a news conference held on Thursday, the opposition alliance, the Joint Meeting Parties (JMP)  warned the regime in Yemen “is turning the country into a police state apparent in its use of military and security forces to repress citizens,” and renewed its call for an “immediate halt to the war in north Yemen.”  In a statement at the end of the conference, the opposition warned of “economic collapse” saying “the economy in Yemen is clinically dead,” and denounced what it said “the flagrant assault on civil liberties and freedoms.”  Secretary General of the Unionist Popular Nasserite Party, Sultan al-Atwani called on the regime to “cease straining the political situation,” and on proposed constitutional amendments, he said “the JMP will not recognize any amendments unless there is consensus.”  JMP current head, Hassan Zaid said “the opposition is proceeding with its plans to hold a national conference of dialogue and we have been in touch with most of the opposition figures outside the country,” and called for reforming the political and electoral system in Yemen.  Abdul-Wahab al-Ansi, the Secretary General of Yemen’s Islamist Congregation for Reform (Islah) said “the regime’s insistence on its dubious policies led the country into this very serious crisis,” and called for “peaceful struggle however difficult and patience-demanding,” and accused the regime of “closing all doors for a peaceful democratic reform which actuated some to resort to extreme alternatives including violence.”

Yemenis shout anti-government slogans and wave flags of former South Yemen during a separatist demonstration in Radfan in the Lahj province, 320 kms south of the capital Sanaa, on October 21, 2009.

LAHJ, 30 Oct — Sheik Yassir al-Sawmali, one of the leaders of the southern political movement Thursday headed towards north Yemen accompanied by 100 strong armed tribesmen to fight Zaydi Shiite rebels. Tribal sources in Lahj told the independent news website, Marib Press: “Al-Sawmali who is the tribal chieftain of Tour al-Baha District in Lahj answered the call of President Ali Abdullah Saleh for national solidarity to fight the Shiite insurgents in Sadaa and Harf Sufian,” but sources close to al-Sawmali said “he merely wants to avenge the death of lieutenant Mahioub al-Attri killed by the Huthi rebels last Ramadan.” A few months ago, al-Sawmali and his henchmen stormed the building of the local council authority in the area and proclaimed himself the effective and sole ruler of the district after his brother, Yahya al-Sawmali was killed in controversial circumstances. He was arrested in Aden last July on charges of instigating unrest, chaos and protests but was released a few days later. Thousands of well wishers lined up in Tour al-Baha to greet the tribesmen urging them to crush the Shiite insurgents and avenge their dead.

SANAA, 27 Oct — Sanaa Special Court Tuesday sentenced to death four Zaydi Shiite suspects on convictions of “killing and wounding many soldiers and security officers and forming an armed gang to carry out a criminal.”  This raises the number of Shiite rebels on death row to 26 and the court sentenced 11 others to prison terms ranging from 5 to 12 years.  The 16th defendant was freed as the judge limited his term to jail time already served since he was arrested with the other defendants on June 2008.  The group was the fifth batch of 190 members of the Shiite Faithful Youth organization who fought the government troops for about a month last year in Bani Hoshish, 20 miles north of the capital Sanaa.  Upon hearing the verdict, the defendants chanted the rebels slogan: “God is great.  Death to America.  Death to Israel.  May God’s curse befall the Jews.  Victory to Islam.”  On Tuesday, the same court also started the trial of another batch of Shiite insurgents.  Meanwhile, Iran denied on Tuesday Yemeni reports of the seizure of an Iranian weapons-laden vessel allegedly destined for the Shiite rebels in north Yemen.  The Tehran-based Arabic satellite TV channel Tuesday quoted “informed Iranian sources,” as saying “no Iranian vessel delivering weapons to the rebels was stopped,” dubbing the reports as “media fabrication.”  On Monday, several news outlets in Yemen reported the seizure of the vessel and its 5-member crew who were transferred to Sanaa for questioning.

SANAA, 27 Oct — The annual report of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Global Gender Gap Index released on Tuesday said Yemen is the worst country in the world for women.  The report assesses counties on gender equality and how resources and employment are divided equally among men and women.  Iceland was voted the best country for women followed by Finland, Norway and Sweden.  At the bottom of the list were Muslim countries including Egypt (126), Iran (128), Turkey (129), Saudi Arabia (130), Pakistan (132) and Yemen (134).  The report said Yemen and other countries at the bottom part of the rankings displayed an “absolute decline in 2009 relative to their performance in 2008.”  The Global Gender Gap Report measures the size of the gender inequality gap in four critical areas: 1. Economic participation and opportunity, 2. Educational attainment, 3. Political empowerment, 4. Health and survival.” WEF founder and Executive Chairman, Klaus Schwab said “girls and women make up one half of the world’s population and without their engagement, empowerment and contribution, we cannot hope to achieve a rapid economic recovery nor effectively tackle global challenges such as climate change, food security and conflict.”
