American-British plans to confront the new stage of Yemeni operations

The pace of the American-British movement has escalated in the past few hours in the Yemeni file, amid indications of a new military escalation on the horizon. What are the implications of the recent moves and the ability of both countries to halt the Yemeni operations?

Exclusive – Al-Khabar Al-Yemeni:

At the rhythm of the new threats by the leader of the Ansar Allah movement, Abdul Malik Al Houthi, Washington and London swiftly rallied, aiming to exert their utmost efforts to confront the new stages.

Al-Houthi’s recent speech was clear, discussing the fifth and sixth stages of operations in the context of Yemeni solidarity with Gaza and countering the Zionist escalation towards Rafah. But the contours of the new stages that the speech included have been a source of concern for Britain and America, both of which have experienced these threats and the extent of their credibility over the past months. Since Al-Houthi’s recent speech, America is not at peace of mind, activating its diplomatic and military arms and threatening economic sanctions.

Within America, the Biden administration has pushed for congressional research to issue a report that includes warnings about the repercussions of previous and subsequent Yemeni operations on supply chains, commodity prices, and the state of the U.S. economy in the coming period. The report aims to convince American legislators to support the Biden administration’s plans to escalate in Yemen, especially in the midst of significant divisions within the legislative institution regarding America’s handling of the Red Sea file, with some supporting escalation and a majority opposing it, considering that escalation exacerbates the problem.

In parallel with the congressional report, the American representative in the Security Council presented a new draft resolution at the end of the week, requesting international cover, not for a new American aggression but rather to blow up the internal fronts in Yemen as part of a plan to ignite a civil war. This emerged by linking one of the paragraphs of the recent American draft to Resolution 2216, which explicitly stipulates guardianship over Yemen, enabling major powers to impose it under the pretext of “restoring legitimacy to Yemen.”

So far, the U.S. administration has failed in its diplomatic path, both domestically and internationally. It has resorted to the military path by sending the commander of the U.S. Central Command to Riyadh in an attempt to persuade Saudi Arabia of the option of military escalation and fund future American operations, which have been hindered by financing and repeated attacks in Yemen. On the economic front, the Biden administration has decided, as revealed by the U.S. State Department spokesman, to impose further sanctions, although they are already ineffective.

The activity in the Yemeni file was not limited to America, as Britain is also doing its utmost to prompt Saudi Arabia to escalate the Yemen file. This is evident in the recent contact between the British Minister of State for Middle East Affairs, Tariq Ahmad, and the Saudi ambassador to Yemen, which included confirmations on the necessity of linking peace in Yemen to the cessation of Yemeni operations.

The motives behind the new American-British activity in the file are not clear, but its timing confirms the growing American-British concerns about the recent phases of Yemeni operations, which Al-Houthi announced in his last speech after the Yemeni forces identified the fourth stage in the Mediterranean, a step that America and Britain fear could disrupt navigation in the entire region, especially with their confirmation of Yemen’s success in banning navigation in the Bab Al-Mandeb and Aden Gulf.

Whatever the American-British objectives of the new activity may be, the data indicates the seeds of a new military escalation that Yemen may witness in the near future in order to prompt Yemen to proceed with a new agreement that includes stopping Yemeni operations against the Israeli occupation in exchange for achieving peace in Yemen, which is an impossible equation that the two countries have previously failed for about five months of aggression against Yemen.
