Iran-backed Jihadis Seize Area Near Key Port in Yemen

The spread of evil is the symptom of a vacuum. Whenever evil wins, it is only by default: by the moral failure of those who evade the fact that there can be no compromise on basic principles.”― Ayn Rand

This represents another catastrophic failure from the Biden Administration. The Biden Administration’s appeasement of Iran has totally destabilized the Middle East. We have not seen an American Administration with such feckless foreign policy in our lifetime. Not even the Carter and Obama Administrations were this incompetent. And we are not even one year in. You think things are bad now. Just wait.

In its early days in office the Biden Administration removed the Houthi rebels of Yemen from the list of foreign terrorist organizations and withdrew weapons support for the Saudi-led coalition aiding Yemen’s government. How are those goodwill gestures working out?”

Yemen’s Iran-backed Islamist rebels seize area near key port

By I-24, November 13, 2021

The Hodeida ceasefire that was agreed at Yemen’s last peace talks in Sweden in 2018 has since been disrupted

Yemen’s Islamist Houthi rebels have taken control of a large area south of Hodeida, a lifeline port where the warring sides agreed a ceasefire in 2018, government military sources said Friday.

The rebels advanced after forces loyal to the internationally recognized government retreated from positions south of the Red Sea port city, the sources said, without giving reasons.

The Hodeida ceasefire was agreed at Yemen’s last peace talks in Sweden in 2018, but clashes have since broken out between the rebels and pro-government troops around the city.

Elsewhere, the Iran-backed insurgents, who are fighting a Saudi-led coalition, have been engaged in a sustained attempt to capture Marib, the government’s last stronghold in the north.

The coalition intervened militarily to prop up the Yemeni government in 2015, after the Houthis seized the capital Sanaa the year before.

Since the start of the conflict, tens of thousands of people have been killed and millions displaced, precipitating what international observers have repeatedly described as the “world’s worst humanitarian crisis.”
