Saudi Arabia and its allies continue to bombard the one of the poorest Asian country backed with US and UK supplied weaponry.
Despite of opposition throughout the world, the Saudis are still bombing Yemen’s cities. Both allies, Saudi Arabia and USA, have the same policy when it comes to crush their enemies. US President Donald Trump has invited his counterpart Netanyahu to visit United State, despite the international criticism against him. On the other hand, the Arab Coalition Forces with US, ISIS, Taliban and Al-Qaeda has attacked Nahom, the Eastern region of San’a. Saudi Allies have intensively bombarded Bab al-Manaab and the fight continues. The attacks killed 52 innocent citizens, injured the same number of people and caused large-scale destruction.
In the International politics, this dilemma continues to exist where on one hand the US and Saudi Arabia claims that they are the flag bearer of war on terrorism and the fight against Taliban, ISIS and other such elements and on the other hand they are fully backing them in Syria and Yemen.
It is worth noting that Djibouti has agreed to allow Saudi Arabia to have its military base in this strategic country that is situated on the Horn of Africa. Djibouti has around 94% of Muslim population and carries a strategic advantage of being situated in the Gulf of Aden and at the southern entrance of the Red Sea. The Foreign Minister of Djibouti Mr. Muhammad Ali Yosuf says that his country currently hosts American and French military bases and the Saudi base intends to resist the Iranian influence in Yemen.
United Arab Emirates is also trying to stay on the top in this race by increasing its military presence in the region. It should be noted that UAE is one of the most significant Saudi Ally in the region and has chosen, the Djibouti neighbor, Eritrea for its military base. If this race for power prevails then for sure this may lead to a bigger chaos and war in the region.
