The futile war waged by Saudi Arabia and its allies on Yemen, acting on behalf of the United States and its allies, continues, and this means that this war does not have a close end because what is needed is the destruction and control of Yemen. It is the link between Asia, Africa and Europe. In addition, this war is linked organically to what is happening in the region according to the plans nearby.
The continued bombing of Yemen by agents of the colonial powers, led by Saudi Arabia, continues to spread the killing, destruction and death of the sons of Yemen and destroy the cities.
From time to time, there are international initiatives that seek to stop this war, but it did not succeed. The last of these initiatives is the negotiations that took place a few days ago on the port of Hodeidah, which is Yemen’s main artery and the key to resolving its crisis.
The UN spokesman said it was agreed to activate a new mechanism and measures to strengthen the cease-fire and calm as soon as possible by monitoring the UN mission to reach the Hodeidah agreement.
This agreement took place on board a United Nations ship that was anchoring off Hodeidah.
During the joint meeting of some of the warring parties, the members of the Committee for the Coordination of the Referendum dealt with the previous conventions on the redeployment of troops as stipulated in the former Hodeidah agreement. The United Nations said in a statement: that after the recent violations of the cease-fire, To find ways to reduce escalation.
The statement said that the Coordination Committee for the redeployment has completed its technical work pending the decision of the political leaders concerned to carry out the implementation, noting that the understanding of the local security forces, local authority and financial resources is one of the outstanding issues to be addressed at the political level.
The agreement on the city of Hodeidah includes a complete cease-fire and a military withdrawal of all troops from the city and the port, and that the United Nations will take over the role of “port control”, while local forces will supervise the maintenance of order in the city.
The agreement also provided for the formation of a committee to oversee the redeployment of Yemeni forces in Hodeidah under the supervision of the United Nations, with local authorities to supervise and monitor, as well as the demining and harboring of Hodeidah.
Last December, Sweden’s UN-sponsored agreement was reached to deal with several files, including the province of Hodeidah and its ports, but accusations were circulating about it.
Will the recent UN-sponsored Sea View deal succeed? Which explicitly provides for the cessation of hostilities in the coastal city of Hodeidah and the withdrawal of all forces from it.
The challenge is to ensure a regular withdrawal of troops from Hodeidah, not to be mistrusted by the warring parties. The city and its port are the lifeblood of millions of Yemenis who are already at risk of famine.
The international desire to end the tragedy in Yemen is not currently available. The climate has not been prepared for important discussions aimed at reaching a broader truce. No framework has been set for political negotiations to end the war on Yemen. We find that it is the main port used to enter most of the food supplies for Yemen’s more than 30 million people, the focus of the fighting this year, raising global fears that a comprehensive attack on Hodeidah by one of the belligerents could cut the supply lines For Yemenis, Leading to famine, at a time when some 15.9 million people in Yemen are suffering from severe hunger due to the war and the economic collapse that ensued.
The Saudi “alliance”, which is suffering from a military stalemate in the field, wants to control the Red Sea coast, one of the world’s most important routes for international oil tankers.
The alliance has taken control of the southern port of Aden in 2015, along with a series of small ports on the west coast, but Ansar Allah controls most of Yemen’s populated cities and towns, including the port of Hodeidah and Sanaa.
Analysts say the implementation of the Hodeidah agreement is important, because any slowdown in the current momentum may be exploited by the coalition as an excuse to resume the attack on Hodeidah.
The most important question: Where did things get now?
“The military units will begin withdrawing from the port within days, then from the city later, international observers will be deployed and the armed units will complete their withdrawal within 21 days,” said Martin Griffith, the international envoy for Yemen at the time of the agreement.
Griffith asked the UN Security Council to speed up a resolution endorsing the deployment of a strong monitoring mission headed by retired Dutchman Patrick Cammert. The envoy also announced that he was working on further confidence-building measures by resolving issues that remained unresolved from the last round of peace talks, Sana’a.
The Yemeni crisis appears to be closely linked to other explosive crises in the region that Western powers are working to prolong in order to control them in one form or another.
The new Hodeidah agreement, if implemented, means that there are changes in Western policies in the entire Arab region.
