Does US want to divide Yemen?
The former US ambassador to Yemen Gerald Firestein warned of attempts to separate Yemen, stressing that the secession would lead to Yemen’s fragmentation and division into several states.
“This will be a bad choice for all Yemenis,” Firestein said, adding that the option of secession would be disastrous for all Yemenis.However, the US ambassador ruled out the success of the secession attempt in Yemen.
In March 2015, the US -backed –Saudi-led coalition started a war against Yemen with the declared aim of crushing the Houthi Ansarullah movement, who had taken over from the staunch Riyadh ally and fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, while also seeking to secure the Saudi border with its southern neighbor. Three years and over 600,000 dead and injured Yemeni people and prevented the patients from travelling abroad for treatment and blocked the entry of medicine into the war-torn country, the war has yielded little to that effect.
Despite the coalition claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
More than 2,200 others have died of cholera, and the crisis has triggered what the United Nations has described as the world’s worst humanitarian disaster.
