Yemen denies placing Hadi under house arrest in Riyadh

Saudi Arabia on Tuesday roundly rejected reports that a prominent prince had been killed in a sweeping anti-corruption purge of the kingdom's elite.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's remarks were carried by the Saudi Press Agency.

"A great deal of evidence has already been gathered, and detailed questioning has taken place", he added, without specifying a timeframe for the trials.

"It is the worst food crisis we are looking at today, seven million people are on the brink of starvation, millions of people being kept alive by our humanitarian operations", spokesman Jens Laerke told reporters this week, as Deutsche Welle reports.

OCHA said the coalition had also asked it to clear ships from the rebel-held Red Sea port of Hodeida, a key entry point for United Nations aid. The Saudi-led coalition controls Yemen's airspace but has made little progress on the ground, where the fighting has been stalemated for more than a year.

The missile launch was "most likely a war crime" Human Rights Watch said on Tuesday but also urged Saudi Arabia against restricting aid access to Yemen, where the United Nations estimates almost 900,000 people are infected with cholera.

"They see it like there is a bunch of executors and killers governing while taking the people hostage", he said.

"There could be escalation between the two countries".

Early this morning, Israeli Channel 10 news published a leaked diplomatic cable which had been sent to all Israeli ambassadors throughout the world concerning the chaotic events that unfolded over the weekend in Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, which began with Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri's unexpected resignation after he was summoned to Riyadh by his Saudi-backers, and led to the Saudis announcing that Lebanon had "declared war" against the kingdom. "Since the Saudis started the bombing in Yemen, it's become a self-fulfilling prophecy and the Iranians have given [the Houthis] support and technology and weapons", Ali Al-Ahmed, Director of the Institute of Gulf Affairs, told Newsweek.

Rashed says: "We urge all airline companies and travelers to avoid airports in both Saudi and UAE as we consider them a legitimate military targets within the range of our ballistic missiles". "KSA is engaged in wars of aggression, regional bullying, destabilizing behavior & risky provocations". Saudi Arabia's population is generally supportive of aggressive policies toward Iran. "By providing these types of weapons to the Houthi militias in Yemen, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp‎s is violating two United Nations resolutions simultaneously", Haley said in a statement.

He said the missile was similar to one launched in July at Yanbu in Saudi Arabia and was manufactured in Iran, disassembled and smuggled into Yemen, then reassembled by the operatives of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and Hezbollah, "then it was launched into Saudi Arabia".

Haley affirmed that the United States would "not turn a blind eye" to the violations of worldwide law by Iran.

"We encourage the United Nations and global partners to take necessary action to hold the Iranian regime accountable for these violations".

"The campaign also comes at a time when pro-legitimacy forces are closing in on Yemeni capital Sanaa and making significant progress on all [military] fronts", the source added. And the war in Yemen will also continue to escalate - perhaps now with increasingly overt Israeli political support.
