Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
In the midst of Saudi airstrikes on Houthi rebels in Yemen, the Russian Embassy in Aden was bombarded. Whether intentionally or unintentionally, it is unclear, but what is clear is that Saudi Arabia is obstructing Russia’s efforts in evacuating its diplomats.
“The crew made contact with coalition forces while flying over the Red Sea,” Khaled Shayef, the director of Sanaa airport, told the Lebanon-based Mayadeen channel. “The coalition refused to allow the landing in Sanaa and the plane had to fly to Cairo.”
Shayef said that Russian citizens – mostly oil industry employees and their families – had gathered in the airport in anticipation of the flight.
Mayadeen, which broadcasts all over the Arab world, claimed that the refusal was in contravention of earlier promises made by the coalition to Moscow, though Russian diplomats in Cairo stopped short of blaming Saudi Arabia.
A little bit of background info:
The war in the middle east can be summed up as a war between two tribes. Shia vs Sunni.
Shia = Followers of Mohammed’s cousin Ali Ibn Abi Talib.
Sunni = Followers of Mohammed’s wife’s father Abu Bakr.
Houthis and Iranians are Shia.
ISIS and Saudi Arabia’s ruling class are Sunni (Wahhabi, and Salafi)
The war is much more complex than the descriptions above, but this should shed some light on the subject. At the very least it should answer some questions you may have regarding why the war is eternal in the middle east.
