Yemen: Riyadh seeks refuge

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — At the beginning of the war against Yemen, Saudi Arabia claimed that it would end, in a matter of weeks, with the Yemeni movement Ansarullah. Today, following the partial withdrawal of the Emirate coalition war, the Saudis, more isolated than ever, have gone on the defensive.

In recent weeks, the withdrawal of Emirati forces from Yemen and the reasons behind this decision have been much in the news.

“The strategic differences between Riyadh and Abu Dhabi are emerging every day a little more. While Saudi Arabia prefers to focus coalition operations on areas in northern Yemen from where the attacks on Abha and Jizan airports are being made, the UAE wants to prioritize offensive operations in the south especially the port of Yemen. Aden, “wrote the Israeli newspaper Haaretz Sunday.

Similarly, the newspaper Rai al-Youm recently wrote that the Saudis are alone and abandoned in Yemen. “They are in the crosshairs of international critics who blame them for the deaths of thousands of Yemeni civilians. “The UAE, which was considered Riyadh’s ally in the war, says they have replaced their war strategy with that of peace,” writes the paper, adding:

“And politically and militarily, the image of Saudi Arabia has been so tarnished that Ansarallah’s deputy spokesman offers to buy Yemeni weapons, just after the American Patriot is unable to protect Saudi territory from Yemeni missiles.”
