Saudi King Salman Praises Judiciary Amid Jamal Khashoggi Fallout

Are the Saudi Princes True Friends

Houthi rebels have controlled the capital Sanaa since late 2014 and has fired hundreds of ballistic missiles into neighbouring Saudi Arabia, which since 2015 has led a regional military coalition aiming to restore to power the government of Yemeni President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi.

In recent months, the Saudi-led coalition has focused on capturing Hodeida, a strategically significant port city through which nearly all of Yemen's food and humanitarian aid flows as well as Iranian military supplies and funding for the rebels.

On November 9, the Pentagon announced that the USA would stop refueling Saudi-led coalition warplanes bombing the Houthis terrorists in Yemen, a move that came at the behest of the Sunni kingdom.

Worldwide pressure has been mounting on Yemen's warring parties to end the conflict, which has killed more than 10,000 people and pushed the country to the verge of starvation.

The Iranian-aligned group, which has been battling the Saudi-backed Government for almost four years, said it was ready for a broader ceasefire if the Saudi-led coalition "wants peace".

Saudi Arabia's King Salman called on the global community on Monday (November 19) to halt Iran's nuclear and ballistic missile programme. The Riyadh-backed Yemen government also announced its willingness to take part in the next round of consultations.

Yemenis cautiously welcomed the announcement.

Artists reacted to the death of the Creator of marvel comics
"The assumption [used to be] that comics were for kids, and when you grew up you moved on to big-boy books without the pictures". Maher continued: "But then twenty years or so ago, something happened - adults decided they didn't have to give up kid stuff".

"We pray that this will be the real beginning of peace in Yemen, we are all exhausted of this war", said Mona Ibrahim, a teacher in the capital Sanaa, which has been under Houthi control since September 2014. At the weekend, we said that we were expecting further clarification.

Graham Griffiths, a senior analyst at Control Risks Middle East, said the announcement was potentially important as it comes in response to the coalition's pausing of operations around Hodeidah. "Nevertheless, given the renewed pressure from the worldwide community, there is a real chance to begin to move the conflict toward a durable de-escalation", he said.

The spokesperson for Germany's Economy Ministry, Philipp Jornitz, said Berlin was "working with those who have valid authorizations with the result that there are now no (weapons) exports from Germany to Saudi Arabia".

"There are still more questions for us than answers in the clarification of this case (Khashoggi), both in the act as such, and in the question who the backers of such an act are", Mass said.

President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi also "issued directives to back all efforts that guarantee the interests of Yemen in reaching sustainable peace" based on United Nations resolutions, a spokesman for the president said via the official Saba news agency.

Key Western allies including the United States have been urgently calling for a ceasefire ahead of the renewed U.N. efforts.
