Three loud noises, Yemen explosion, how will it be in 2021?

by YCPress

December 30, at Yemen’s Aden International Airport, when Yemen’s newly formed cabinet members arrived from Saudi Arabia, there were three loud explosions – which now seems to have killed 26 people and injured 110.

In 2020, it starts with the sound of explosion and ends with the sound of explosion. After 2020, I sincerely hope that the epidemic will end soon, and I sincerely hope that the world will be peaceful!

Looking back on a year ago, at the end of 2019, the U.S. military airstrike Shiite militias on the Iraqi-Syrian border, and Iraqi people demonstrated in front of the U.S. Embassy in Iraq in Baghdad. When 2020 arrived, the U.S. military sent drones to blow up Iran’s Major General Suleimani at Baghdad International Airport. This explosion at Aden International Airport in Yemen really blows up 2020 from year to year.

United Nations Secretary-General Guterres condemned the bombing through a statement issued by Deputy Spokesperson Haq. At the same time, Guterres expressed his deep condolences to the families of the victims and the people and government of Yemen, and wished the injured an early recovery.

From Guterres’s statement, it is not difficult to find that the international community hopes that the Yemen problem will be resolved through negotiation and political settlement, which is also what the international community believes is the ultimate way to resolve the conflict.

However, the explosion at the Yemen airport shows that some people are unwilling to sit down and talk. Look at how they bombed–

Sources from the scene said that three explosions, some of which targeted the runway and the airport hall respectively. Uncle Hai said that Yemen International Airport is a civil aviation airport.

Even if members of the new Yemeni government returned from Saudi Arabia at that time, even if senior Yemeni government officials picked up the plane at the scene, there were other planes on the runway of the airport, and there were ordinary passengers in the terminal hall.

In fact, no one of the cabinet members of Yemen’s new government headed by the new Prime Minister of Yemen, Moine Abdul-Malik Said, were injured in the explosion. Who were killed and injured by the explosion? Was the original intention of the bomber to slaughter civilians?

Muin Abdul-Malik Said, who withdrew to the presidential palace, condemned the bombing attack, calling it a “treacherous and cowardly terrorist attack”. Yemen’s Minister of Information Eryani accused the Houthi in a statement, saying that they planned the airport bombing attack.

At present, the Houthis have not responded to the bombing. Uncle Hai sincerely hopes that this poorest country in the Arab world can restore peace and embark on the road of development at an early date.

Yemen was unified in the early 1990s. Originally, Yemen, which was located at the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, was divided into two countries – the Yemen Arab Republic and the People’s Democratic Republic of Yemen.

Despite the reunification of North and South Yemen in 1990 and the establishment of a new Republic of Yemen, the new country has been immersed in the war for 30 years now. Since then, the Houthis have been fighting against government forces in northern Yemen.

In September 2014, the armed forces captured the capital Sana’a and then occupied southern Yemen, forcing President Hadi to take refuge in Saudi Arabia.

In 2015, Saudi-led Arab allies launched military operations against the Houthis, and the fighting in Yemen escalated.

Chinese evacuation in Yemen

On March 29 of that year, the Linyi ship of the People’s Liberation Army Navy also sailed to Aden to evacuate overseas Chinese. This story was later made into the film Operation Red Sea.

Since then, the conflict in Yemen has escalated. In 2018, the Arab Allies captured the port city of Hodida in western Yemen. The Houthi group then promised peace talks.

In 2018, in Stockholm, the Swedish capital, under the auspices of the United Nations Special Envoy Griffith, the two sides of the Yemeni conflict reached the Stockholm Agreement and agreed to end the fighting in Hodeida Province and exchange prisoners of war. The United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution on December 21 of that year, authorizing the United Nations to monitor whether the parties abide by the ceasefire upon request.

On September 27 this year, representatives of the Yemeni government and Houthi signed an agreement in Switzerland to release prisoners of war and released 1,081 conflict-related individuals.

Data released by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in early December showed that about 230,000 people died in the war in Yemen.

Peace is precious! However, at present, the situation in Yemen is becoming more and more complicated.

Originally, it was the contradiction between the Houthis and the Yemeni government that led the Arab allies to help the Yemeni government fight against the Houthis.

On December 26 this year, in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, a new government in Yemen was established under the mediation of Saudi Arabia.

On December 26, in Riyadh, the new Prime Minister of Yemen, Moine Abdul-Malik Said, and 23 ministers, were sworn in. Yemeni President Hadi, who has been working here for a long time, presided over the inauguration ceremony.

The analysis ranges from Moin Abdul-Malik Said to 23 ministers, half of whom are from Hadi regimes expelled from the north to the south, and the other half from the local “Southern Transitional Council” in the south.

Although the common enemy of the two sides is the Houthis, there is also a fierce power struggle between them.

In August 2019, the “Southern Transitional Council” once seized control of Aden, and then reached a power-sharing agreement under the reconciling of Saudi Arabia, which supports the Hadi regime, and the United Arab Emirates, which supports the “Southern Transitional Council”.

The formation of the new cabinet marks the further implementation of the power-sharing agreement.

But with the three explosions at Aden airport, it is indeed a question mark whether the coalition government of Yemen can quickly rebuild the country and stabilize and recover the whole country.

Will it be in 2021? Judging from the bombing in Yemen, not only the epidemic, but also the challenges are really big.
