Saudi-led Coalition Intercepts Houthi Drone

Saudi Arabian air defenses intercepted and destroyed an armed drone launched by Yemen's Houthi group towards the southern Saudi city of Khamis Mushait, state television said on Monday.

It cited the Saudi-led military coalition, which has been battling the Houthis for over six years, as saying it was taking operational measures to protect civilians from such assaults.

On Sunday, Saudi state media said a drone rigged with explosives fell on a school in the kingdom's Aseer province but that no injuries were reported.

The Iran-aligned Houthis have frequently launched cross-border missile and drone attacks on Saudi cities in the war.

Houthi Islamic Scholar Ibrahim Al-Ubeidi: 

- Trump "The Jew" created the Coronavirus
- The purpose of COVID vaccines is to realize the Jewish-Satanic goal of controlling us

Source: Al-Eman TV (Yemen)

Ibrahim Al-Ubeidi: "It is no longer just about coronavirus-1 and coronavirus-2. Now they want to give us the 3rd generation of COVID. It is a man-made disease. America blames China, and China blames America, but they are all enemies of humanity.

"America needs to understand that the virus was created on its own [land]. Trump – that Jew who created this virus and spread it around the world – is a criminal who must be persecuted, because he caused the death of all these people worldwide, including in America.

"The Great Satan, which is the United States... We all saw Trump's pretexts and the way he talked – as if America had nothing to do with this, when, in fact, the [virus] was produced by the Great Satan. America is spreading corruption upon the land, by means of the Zionist lobby, which penetrated the United States in order to create these malignant things, and generate this biological war.

Yemen Houthis Gear up for Sanaa Airport Reopening, Sources Say

Yemen's Houthi administration has started renovating Sanaa airport, two industry sources said, as the group that controls most of northern Yemen prepares for a possible reopening of the facility under U.N.-led peace efforts.

A Saudi Arabian-led coalition has controlled Yemen's air space since 2015, when the alliance intervened against the Iran-aligned Houthi movement that ousted the internationally recognized government from the capital, Sanaa.

The coalition's spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether it had agreed to reopen air space and allow the airport to resume regular operations.

The industry sources told Reuters that construction work had begun in some parts of the airport, which has been closed since 2015 except for U.N. flights.

It has been targeted dozens of times by coalition airstrikes over the last six years. The military alliance says the facility is used for arms smuggling.

A Houthi Minefield was Discovered in the Red Sea

Arab Coalition forces, led by Saudi Arabia, active on the west coast of Yemen announced on Monday the discovery of a network of naval mines left by the Houthi militia. The mines are reportedly located south of the large island of Hanish, in the Southern Red Sea near Bab al-Mandab, one of the world's most important trade routes.

A security source noted that the size of the network was sufficient to improve the scope of the danger and threat to Iranian militias on the international shipping line.

It was also reported that the Arab coalition and Coast Guard engineering forces had dismantled the network, stressing that the quality of the naval mines confirms that it is one of the known weapons belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

International reports have suggested that the Iranian-affiliated Houthi militia has planted extensive minefields in the Red Sea, posing a major danger to both international shipping and fishing vessels.

Intelligence Sources: The UAE is Building an Airbase on the Island of Mayun

Intelligence sources have revealed that the United Arab Emirates is working to establish an airbase in an important strategic area. 

Satellite images showed trucks with construction debris around the base, building foundations, and a two-kilometer runway at the strategic island Mayun off Yemen.

The UAE has denied the existence of an airbase on the island, but the online news site Messer obtained images from sources that took aerial photographs and monitored the area. The images showed a huge route built across the island that began construction years ago.

Yemeni sources told the Associated Press - under the condition of anonymity - that ships in the service of the UAE have in recent weeks transferred weapons, military equipment, and forces to Mayun.

Amnesty: Yemen's Houthis must release model fearing 'virginity testing'
Amnesty International said on Friday Yemen's Houthi authorities must halt plans for forced virginity testing and release an actor and model the human rights group says has been detained on "spurious grounds." Twenty-year-old Yemeni Intisar al-Hammadi was arrested in February at a checkpoint in the capital Sanaa, which is controlled by the Houthi group in Yemen's six-year conflict. A judicial source previously told Reuters she had been charged with carrying out an indecent act and going against Islamic principles. "Intisar al-Hammadi has regularly appeared in photographs online including in social media posts, without a headscarf defying strict societal norms in Yemen," Amnesty said. Yemen has consistently been at the bottom of the World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap index. "Hammadi was arrested by plainclothes security forces at a checkpoint in Sanaa on 20 February," Amnesty said. "While detained, she was interrogated while blindfolded, physically and verbally abused, subjected to racist insults and forced to 'confess' to several offences, including drug possession and prostitution." Amnesty said her lawyer was informed on Wednesday by a member of the prosecution team of plans to carry out a virginity test on her within days. Amnesty says forced virginity tests are a form of sexual violence amounting to torture under international law. "The Houthi de facto authorities have a deplorable track record of arbitrarily detaining people on baseless charges – to silence or punish critics, activists, journalists and members of religious minorities – as well as subjecting them to torture and other forms of ill-treatment," said Amnesty's deputy director for the Middle East and North Africa, Lynn Maalouf.

"Multinational missiles": Iran allows militias to produce weapons in four Arab countries
A recent study by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) said that Iran was using the Revolutionary Guards' Quds Force to supply its loyalist militias in four Arab countries with longer-range and more accurate missiles than they currently hold, which would threaten Israel's security in the event of war. According to Forbes magazine, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards have set up a wide network of increasingly powerful and influential militias in various parts of the Middle East to meet Tehran's needs to increase and expand its influence. According to Iranian expert Nader Oskoy, Quds Force was able to recruit, arm and organize up to 200,000 militia fighters loyal to Tehran. These four countries are: Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Yemen. 🇮🇱 IF YOU LOVE ISRAEL - SHARE NEWSRAEL! 🇮🇱 Source: Nziv.Net

Biden’s Foreign Policy: New Administration, Old Missteps
by: Prof. Eytan Gilboa Three months after Joe Biden entered the White House, his administration is exhibiting symptoms of naiveté, misunderstanding, and disregard for past failures in its foreign policy. These issues are of particular concern to Israel. To stop the Iranian race to nuclear weapons, the Obama administration made mistakes in both the negotiation process and the nuclear deal it ultimately reached with Iran in 2015. Barack Obama was overly eager to reach an agreement, and though he repeatedly warned Iran that all options were on the table, it was clear he had no intention of taking military steps. This hardened Iran’s positions and eventually yielded a compromise that worked to the advantage of the Islamic regime. The same problems have emerged again today. President Biden is going out of his way to appease Iran in an effort to restore the 2015 nuclear agreement, which imposed restrictions on the Iranian regime’s program to develop nuclear weapons. Biden removed the Houthis (Iran-backed Shiite forces fighting the Saudi-backed Yemeni government) from a list of countries and organizations supporting terrorism. He assumed this move would reduce the violence inside Yemen and against Saudi Arabia so the severe humanitarian crisis caused by the civil war could be addressed. The result was exactly the opposite. Encouraged by Tehran, the Houthis intensified their attacks, especially on Saudi Arabia. 🇮🇱 IF YOU LOVE ISRAEL - SHARE NEWSRAEL! 🇮🇱 Source: Prof. Eytan Gilboa - BESA

Less than 10 Jews live in Yemen today, the Yemenite Jewish community used to be over 50,000. 13 Yemenite Jewish had to leave Yemen due to the civil war. Now there’s less than 10 left. Reports say the Iranian supported Houthi rebels are now controlling big portions of Yemen. The Jewish community moved to Cairo but refused to move to Israel according to “Times of Israel” report. Most Yemenite Jews moved to Israel after it was founded and due to increasing antisemitism after the independence war in 1948. Since 2014 when the Houthis rose to power in most of Northern Yemen, one of their chants was “Death to the Jews” as they teach Jewish hatred in elementary schools. Source: Walla News!
