UN’s Decision on Yemen Offers No Solutions

“Two thousand people have been killed and there is more than half a million displaced people, since March.” Yemen is the poorest country in the region and one of the poorest countries in the entire world. The conflict between Rebel forces and loyalist fighters still continues, but the increasing of these confrontations between those two groups have increased since the UN peace talks have been indefinitely postponed.

Hopes for a political solution to the conflict since March fade as violence continues in Yemen’s third city, Taez

A decision making which is correlated with the decision of the exiled president Hadi, who demands Al Houthis withdraws from cities before being allowed to participate. The problem in this difficult aspect is that this decision which has been made by the UN has restarted the attacks. The violence continues in Yemen’s third city, Taez where Shia Houthi rebels bombarded several districts with rocket and tank fire.

“There’s a real massacre going on in Taez, the city that spearheaded the revolt” against former president Ali Abdullah Saleh who now supports the Houthis, one resident said.

The real threat is that with each day pass, the struggle in Yemen becomes more and more difficult to resolve and reach the peace. That decision to postponed peace talks, in Geneva on 28 May, suppose the increasing of civilian people dead, displaced persons, the increasing of famine and the destabilization of this poor country that it will last many years until it recovers all their economical, demographical and political loss. Yemen is not an influential country and it has no power in the international community, as we have seen there is a coalition of nine countries to fight against the Houtis rebels but the truth is that the only country that has intervened in this issue it has been Saudi Arabia. The main reason of this intervention is because it makes border with this country and this could be a threat for its own interests and national security. But it seems that the UN and the exiled president do not see what it is really happening. In recent months Yemen has descended into conflicts between several different groups, pushing the country “to the edge of civil war”, according to the UN’s special adviser.

Yemen is in the grip of its most severe crisis in years, as competing forces fight for control of the country. The Houthis are an opposed group to al-Qaeda who has had a great influence and power in these last years in the Arabian Peninsula. So, as the Houthis are fighting also with Yemen´s al-Qaeda to gain ground and they have reached important victories such as the significant stretches of ground in Radaa, a district in al-Bayda governorate and a traditional stronghold of al-Qaeda in Yemen.

Al Jazeera’s Hashem Ahelbarra, who is a roving Middle East correspondent for Al Jazeera said: “The Houthis say they will continue their fight until al-Qaeda is defeated or evicted from these areas.”

At this point my dears readers I leave you a question that whoever at home, in his cars, offices etc. can answer as you think and want. The poorest intervention and implication not just of the Arabs countries that can be affected for this conflict but the international community too, could be explained for the positive aspects that the slaughter between the Houthis and al-Qaeda members represent? Taking into account that al-Qaeda has practically no more power and influence after the defeats against this rebel group.
