Israeli jets flying over Yemen, alleges Houthi leader

Amidst large number of killings of Palestinian protesters by Israeli forces in recent weeks, Tel Aviv’s connivance with Riyadh in its air campaign against Yemen has been revealed. Leader of Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement Abdul-Malik Badreddin al-Houthi has, on Saturday, revealed that Israeli warplanes have been detected flying over the key port city of Hudaydah, along the red Sea coast.

According to Sana’a based Arabic language al-Masirah TV network, Houthi said Israeli jets have been seen in Hudaydah’s skies over the past few days amid a push by Saudi mercenaries to seize the city.

“Yemen is actually fighting against a Saudi-Zionist coalition,” he said, referring to a military campaign which Riyadh has been carrying out against Yemen since 2015. Israeli government is referred as Zionist by the media in the region, especially in the countries which are not part of the US-Israel-Saudi Arabia alliance.

Earlier several Western countries including US and UK in particular were widely known to be helping Saudi Arabia led coalition engaged in anti-Yemen aggression. This is the first time when claims of Israeli complicity have been made public.

Moreover, a senior Israeli nuclear expert has recently revealed that Israel was selling Saudi Arabia information that would help develop nuclear weapons.

Hudaydah, home to about 400,000 people, is a lifeline for aid to war-torn Yemen. Riyadh claims the Houthis are using the key port for weapons delivery, an allegation rejected by the fighters, who are generally referred to be the pro-Iran group in the western media.

Hudaydah, situated on Yemen’s western Red Sea coast, has witnessed renewed tensions over the past few days. Saudi-backed forces have closed in on Hudaydah, sparking fears of an all-out assault.

The UN and humanitarian organizations have warned that a potential Saudi attack on Hudaydah could result in a disaster.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has also warned that fighting in Hudaydah would make “an already catastrophic situation even worse.”

The Geneva based humanitarian institution said in a statement, “The ICRC is line with international humanitarian law urges all the parties to the conflict to respect civilian lives by taking every possible measure to protect civilians.”

Separately on Saturday, al-Masirah reported that Yemeni army soldiers and fighters from allied Popular Committees had destroyed seven Saudi armored vehicles in the kingdom’s southern regions of Asir and Najran.

Nawaz Sharif’s Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari’s Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) have agreed on a power-sharing deal to form a new coalition government after days of intense negotiations, as per the senior party leaders.

On Tuesday night, in a joint conference, the PPP Chairman Bhutto announced that PML-N president, 72-year-old Shehbaz Sharif will be the Prime Minister of Pakistan once again and the PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari, 68, is set to assume the role of the President of Pakistan again.

Speaking to reports, Bhutto said the PPP and PML-N have achieved the required number, and now they were in a position to form the government.

He said the former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party-backed candidates and Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) could not achieve a simple majority in Parliament to form government in the Centre.

Bilawal hoped that the political alliance with PML-N to form a coalition government would result in a positive market response since the cash-strapped country faced a hung Parliament after the February 8 elections.

Independent candidates, who were supported by the 71-year-old Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party, managed to secure 93 seats in the National Assembly.

Shehbaz Sharif, in his speech, expressed confidence that his PML-N party, along with the PPP, now has the necessary numbers to form the next government. He also thanked the leadership of both parties for successfully concluding the talks.

According to the reports, the former prime minister highlighted the unity between the two political parties and their strong position to form the government at the Centre.

The PML-N secured 75 seats in the election, while the PPP came in third with 54 seats. Additionally, the Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P) has agreed to support the two parties with their 17 seats.

To form a government, a party must win 133 out of 265 contested seats in the 266-member National Assembly or the lower house of Parliament.
