  • US strikes in Yemen will not put an end to AL Qaeda..

    06-03-2017

    Pentagon spokesman Jeff Davis's statement that the recent American strikes on Al Qaeda in Yemen (known as AQAP) is part of a planning that “goes well back into last year,” and that the timing had nothing to do with Trump taking office may contradict with the successive and intensive strikes on the group's affiliates during the past few days Which reflect unusual high rate of strikes that lack the direction or the clear purposes. What’s new in this planning to put an end to Al-Qaeda in Yemen?

  • The Weekly: US Intentions in Syria - Implications for UAE

    07-04-2017

    On Tuesday 4th April, the people of the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhun were the targets of an attack using a chemical weapon.  Early analysis suggested that this involved the deadly nerve agent, Sarin.  At least 70 people died, including 27 children.  The video footage of those who were struggling to survive, together with the emotional testimony from victims’ families mobilised international sympathy in a manner which few other military attacks have achieved over the past six years of war.

  • Russian –Israeli relations, Iran and Arabs

    26-08-2017

    The fact which the Israelis believes in more than others is that Israel is an odd entity among a popular environment which rejects it and wishes its demise. For this reason, we see that the issue of security is always at the top of the Israeli political agenda and since the foundation of the Israeli entity, its sponsors do not accept any risk concerning "security of Israel". They always look with great concern for the future and do not wait for events but they deal with them long before they occur.

  • Al-Qaeda project inside Yemen!

    17-09-2017

    “Islamic Caliphate is false and what is built on falsehood is false." This comment was not addressed by one of the parties in the Global Coalition against ISIS, but it was posed by the leader  of Al-Qaeda in Hadramout Khalid Baterfi[1] during the occupation of al-Mukalla city in 2015, which implies  that there was no intention for Ansar al-Sharia (al-Qaeda branch in Mukalla) to achieve Caliphate in the city because of two absent conditions: First, the acquiring of the land, and the second is the consensus of the Muslims!

  • UAE seeks to eliminate Al -Qaeda in Yemen

    24-09-2017

    The rapid and consecutive maneuvers currently led by UAE forces in the governorate of Abyan in Yemen to get rid of Al-Qaeda came after a strong blow to the group in Hadramout  and Shabwa governorates in what is considered an Emirati campaign to eliminate  Al-Qaeda in the South of Yemen. But the first operations in Hadramout and Shabwa haven’t been completed yet. Both governorates still embrace  Al-Qaeda remnants, and the group has no intention at the moment to leave the provinces entirely or stop fighting.

  • Iran & Al Qaeda Links

    17-11-2017

    In an interesting twist to an already complicated story, the unlikely saviour of al-Qaeda is alleged to be Iran which has apparently embarked on what is described as a remarkable pact with the Shia state. CIA director, Mike Pompeo, suggested the al-Qaeda-Iran pact had been an ‘open secret’ during the Obama administration, which had failed to act in order to push through the nuclear agreement.
