Saudi war on Yemen

An organization observing the human rights situation in Yemen has released shocking figures documenting the crimes committed by the Saudi-led coalition during its aggression there. The Eye of Humanity Center for Human Rights and Development says more than 18,000 people have been killed in nearly eight years of war in Yemen. That includes nearly 4,800 children. The center says nearly 600,000 homes have also been destroyed during the war. It adds that universities, schools, mosques, airports, power stations, factories and medical facilities were completely destroyed during the aggression. Many of those public places were prime targets of the coalition’s warplanes. Saudi Arabia along with some of its regional allies launched a war on Yemen in March 2015 to re-instate a friendly regime there. Riyadh has defied international calls to stop the deadly aggression and blockade.

Al-Aqsa status quo

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry warns about more incursions into al-Aqsa mosque by Israeli settlers under the upcoming Israeli coalition cabinet. The ministry said any Israeli attempt to change the status quo of al-Aqsa will have damaging consequences for the regime. It called on Arab and Islamic countries to provide the necessary international protection for occupied al-Quds and its sanctities. The ministry’s warning came after scores of Israeli settlers broke into the al-Aqsa compound again under the protection of the regime’s forces. The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has already warned Israel against crossing the red lines at al-Aqsa Mosque.

'Republicans to abandon Trump'

Former White House official John Bolton says Republicans are ready to abandon Donald Trump for the 2024 presidential race, adding that he’s acting old and tired. Bolton, who served as a national security advisor under Trump, says the party is ready to move on to a fresh face. He says some in the party have just switched Trump off in their brain after Republicans underperformed in this month’s midterm elections. Bolton suggested Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as a possible Republican candidate. Trump has formally entered the race for the 2024 US presidential election. Bolton is the latest ex-White House official to cast doubt about the popularity of his former boss. Some key figures in the party have blamed Trump and his endorsed candidates for the disappointing results in the mid-term election, warning that the party will lose the 2024 race if Trump is its final choice.
