Saudi-UAE Plot to Divide AdenSalem-News.com Foreign Affairs
Saudi Arabia and the UAE may be planning to jointly administer regions of Yemen particularly rich in oil reserves.
(SALEM, Ore.) - While Saudi Arabia has failed in its five-month aggression against Yemen, it now has given a stronger role to the United Arab Emirates, so that together with this country, the two nations can reveal its American-Israeli plot for dividing Aden and Hadhramaut.
In fact, the plot of dividing the Aden and Hadhramaut region, which has targeted the independence of Yemeni territory, is the most recent conspiracy of the aggressors against the territorial integrity of Yemen. This plan was introduced with the understanding that the US and Saudi Arabia are farther than ever from reaching their goals in Yemen; however, they are looking for solutions and new conspiracies so that they can force the Yemeni nation to surrender.
This is a nation that has offered thousands of martyrs and wounded, mostly children and women. Besides, tens of thousands of Yemenis have been displaced and nearly 80% of the country's infrastructure has been destroyed.
The new plan of Saudi Arabia and the UAE for annexing Aden and Hadhramaut was revealed to the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council, and last week, the Intelligence Online, a French journal, reported that Saudi Arabia and UAE are hatching a plot to divide Yemen.
The magazine stressed that according to the plan that has been prepared in al-Tanjah, Morocco, military commanders of Saudi Arabia and the UAE have ratified and confirmed that Saudi Arabia should take over northern Yemen, which borders Saudi Arabia, and the UAE should wrest control over the eastern part of the country.
According to the plan, Saudi Arabia and the UAE will jointly administer the central regions of Yemen, including Ma'rib governorate, which are particularly rich in oil reserves.
Incoming reports from Yemen indicate that Saudi Arabia and the UAE seek to occupy three cities of Yemen including Taiz, Aden and Ma'rib. This is a prelude to the occupation of Sanaa, the Yemeni capital.
Riyadh and Abu Dhabi have reportedly prepared more than 30 thousand military forces to attack Sanaa.
In this regard, Dahi Khalfan Tamim, the Head of General Security for the Emirate of Dubai said last week that the flag of Aden and Hadhramaut governorates soon would be flying along the flags of the member states of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council and these states would be in charge of the administration of Aden and Hadhramaut, until the future of northern regions of Yemen is determined.
Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have been making attempts since three months ago to divide Yemen into two parts, northern and southern Yemen.
Accordingly, over the last month, Riyadh and Abu Dhabi have begun to launch fierce attacks against Taiz, Aden and Ma'rib; however, they have failed to reach their goals, because the Yemeni army and Ansarullah resolutely resist in those cities.
The role of the United Arab Emirates in dividing Yemen
Analysts believe that as the small UAE state cannot play any important role in the Syrian conflict, it has found that the aggression of Saudi-US coalition forces against Yemen, could serve as an opportunity for the UAE to achieve a higher position in the Arab world as did Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
The experts emphasize that the UAE seeks to dominate the port of Aden in Yemen which is of strategic importance.
The UAE reportedly supports terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda in southern Yemen, so that it can take over Aden and get Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, the fugitive Yemeni President, back to Yemen.
The UAE has sent many of its troops and equipment to the city of Aden, where mercenaries affiliated to the UAE and Saudi Arabia have seized control of the city for a while.
Saudi Arabia and the plan to divide Yemen
After five months of aggression in which Saudi Arabia has failed to make any significant achievement, Riyadh is now striving for the disintegration of Yemen.
To achieve its objectives, Al Saud has asked the UAE to accompany it, as it has utterly failed and was not able to get back Mansour Hadi to power in Yemen. Therefore, the Saudis are looking for other alternatives to defeat the Yemeni army and popular committees.
In recent decades, Saudis have played a major role in bringing mercenary Presidents into power in Yemen. Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi was also brought into power based on a similar plan, but the Yemeni nation ran out of patience and in the framework of a revolution made the puppet president flee to Saudi Arabia.
The project of dividing Yemen is within the framework of the US-Israel projects to divide and disintegrate the Islamic states such as Syria, Iraq, etc.
Saudi Arabia's failure to fulfill its objectives in Yemen has made these countries consider any proposed plan in line with inflicting harm on the people of Yemen and eliminating the territorial integrity of Yemen.
