|Yemen’s Houthis kill man for rejecting request to join their ranks|
|[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] A Yemeni man was killed by a militia in Sanaa on Monday after he refused to join their fighting ranks.|
Waleed Nabil, who was the son of the head of the Yemeni Organization for Combating Human Trafficking, was stopped at a Houthi checkpoint, according to local sources.
Nabil’s father said that according to eyewitnesses, a car with Houthi chased his son’s car, and purposely crashed into it, then proceeded to shoot live ammunition at him. They then removed his dead body from the car and drove off.
"I got in touch with the Ansarullah office in Sanaa, and they confirmed that he was dead, but they refused to allow me to see his body or give more details," Nabil’s father said.
He added that he had received a phone call a few hours before Nabil’s death from an unknown person asking why his other son did not join the Houthi fighting fronts yet. He said when he replied, "What is our relationship with the war", he was accused of belonging to ISIS.
While the Houthis refuse to return Nabil’s body to his family, international organizations have called for the body to be returned, and social media users have condemned the Houthis for the incident.
|US sits idly by amid concerns over imminent UAE attack on Hudaydah|
|[PRESSTV] The United States is standing idly by in the face of an imminent military offensive by its ally, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), on Yemen’s port city of Hudaydah, which the UN and aid groups have warned could lead to a humanitarian catastrophe there.|
In the past few days, forces loyal to Yemen’s ex-president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, backed by a Saudi-led coalition, have closed in on Hudaydah, reportedly seizing a number of nearby areas. The UAE, which is a party to the Saudi-led coalition, is playing a key role in the offensive.
The coalition, which has been waging a deadly war on since 2015, claims that the Yemeni Ansarullah movement is using the besieged port for weapons delivery, an allegation rejected by the fighters.
The Houthi movement has been both running state affairs in the absence of an effective government and defending the country against the Saudi aggression with the help of allied popular forces.
Ansarullah has pledged a firm response to a military offensive against Hudaydah. Residents of the port city are also preparing to help the Houthis against any such invasion.
Yemeni media reports over the past days suggest that people from other parts of Yemen are rushing to the port city to assist the armed forces in their counter-attacks in the wake of a potential Emirati offensive.
|UN peace plan wants Houthis in govt., end to Saudi strikes|
|[PRESSTV] The has reportedly drawn up a peace plan to end the Saudi war on amid the failure of international diplomacy to halt the deadly aggression.|
The peace plan calls on Yemen’s Ansarullah movement to renounce its ballistic missiles in return for an end to the bombing campaign by and a transitional governance agreement, reported Friday.
The draft document, cited by the news agency, has been drafted by the UN’s Yemen envoy Martin Griffiths. It says, "Heavy and medium weapons including ballistic missiles shall be handed over by non-state military actors in an orderly and planned fashion."
The document calls for establishing an inclusive transition government, "in which political components shall be adequately represented," in an apparent not to the Houthis. The plan, however, offers no detail on how much representation the Houthis might receive in the transitional government.
The Houthis and this allies administer Sana'a and are unlikely to cede the capital without participation in a future government.
Previous efforts to end the Saudi war, which had has left 600,000 Yemeni civilians dead and injured since 2015, have failed.
A source familiar with the plan said, "The intention is to link security and political aspects starting with a cessation of fighting ... then to move toward a withdrawal of forces and the formation of a national unity government."
An Ansarullah official welcomed the UN plan, calling the ceasefire the first building block in the political process.
The official said the previous truces had failed, but "our optimism will be determined by how serious the other parties are of the UN role."
The plan, which has not been made public, is the latest effort to end the war, which has led to one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.
Anwar Gargash, the UAE's minister of state for foreign affairs, signaled Abu Dhabi's desire to support Griffiths' efforts but a for the so-called Saudi coalition declined to comment on the draft document, which he said he had not seen.

|[PRESSTV] The United States is considering a request from the UAE to provide direct support for an attack to seize the Houthi-held port of Hudaydah, a major lifeline for Yemen, officials say.|
US officials said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has asked for a prompt assessment of the UAE’s appeal for assistance such as surveillance drone flights to help a Saudi-led coalition capture Hudaydah.
The debate over increasing US support to the UAE and comes amid escalating military operations around the Yemeni port despite UN warnings of catastrophic effects on the impoverished country.
Eighty percent of commercial and humanitarian supplies flow through Hudaydah, a central gateway. Since May 27, forces supported by Saudi Arabia have been closing in on the port, claiming that Yemen’s Ansarullah movement uses it for weapons delivery.
American officials say the UAE and Saudi Arabia have assured Washington that they won’t attempt to take the Red Sea port until they get support from the US.
"We continue to have a lot of concerns about a Hudaydah operation," said one senior US official, quoted by The Wall Street Journal.

|UK PM, Bin Salman discuss confronting Iran|
|[PRESSTV] Saudi Crown Prince and British Prime Minister Theresa May have discussed possible ways of confronting Iran and its growing role in the Middle East.|
May's office said Sunday that the two leaders agreed over the phone on the need to tackle what they call "Iranian destabilizing activity" in the region.
"As part of this the Prime Minister noted the importance of cooperation between their two countries to protect Saudi Arabia from ballistic missile attacks," the statement added.
More than three years after waging a deadly war against the people of its impoverished southern neighbor Yemen, the Riyadh regime has been unable to stop a barrage of ballistic missile attacks by Yemeni army and popular forces that have successfully hit targets deep in their territories.
Outraged by their defeat against Yemen’s domestically developed missiles, Saudi rulers and their Western allies have repeatedly accused Iran of providing missile technology to the Ansarullah Movement, a militia group that took over from Yemen’s former corrupt government in 2015.
This is while Yemen’s main marital and aerial gateways have been under a tight blockade by Saudi Arabia and its allies over the course of the war.
May and Bin Salman also discussed the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, which has been recently undermined by US President ’s pullout.
Saudi Arabia and Israel have been two of the main critics of the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

|[PRESSTV] Yemen's army has warned the UAE that its capital, Abu Dhabi, is "no longer safe" from missiles fired in retaliation for the Saudi-led military campaign on the impoverished state.|
"From now on Abu Dhabi is no longer safe, it will be within our ballistic missiles' range," Brigadier General Sharaf Ghaleb Luqman said in a statement carried by Yemen's official Saba news agency on Friday.
Luqman also urged investors in Abu Dhabi to take his warning seriously.
The UAE is a key member of a Saudi-led invasion that began in March 2015 in support of Yemen’s former Riyadh-friendly government and against the Ansarullah movement.
The offensive has killed and injured over 600,000 civilians, according to the Yemeni Ministry of Human Rights.
Elsewhere in his statement, the said the Yemeni army would confront the military escalation by the UAE forces in the country's western coast in Hudaydah.
"Yemen's army supported by popular committees has recaptured most of the areas in the western coast," he said. "Islands and areas, where the occupation forces of the Saudi-UAE-led coalition are stationing, will be a cemetery."
The remarks came amid a recent military build-up by the UAE-backed forces in Yemen's western port city of Hudaydah and the Socotra Island.
Luqman further rejected reports of advances by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen's northern Sa'ada Province as false.

Indian oil giant Reliance to halt oil imports from Iran
[Ynet] India's Reliance Industries Ltd, owner of the world's biggest refining complex, plans to halt oil imports from Iran, two sources familiar with the matter said, in a sign that new US sanctions are forcing buyers to shun oil purchases from Tehran.
Reliance's move, expected to take effect in October or November, came after US President abandoned a 2015 nuclear agreement this month and ordered the reimposition of US sanctions on Tehran.
Some sanctions take effect after a 90-day "wind-down" period ending on Aug. 6, and the rest, notably on the petroleum sector, after a 180-day "wind-down period" ending on Nov. 4.
India has said it does not follow US sanctions but companies with links to the US financial system could be liable to penalties if they do not comply.
Reliance, an Indian conglomerate controlled by billionaire Mukesh Ambani, has significant exposure to the financial system of the United States, where it operates some subsidiaries that are linked to its oil and telecom businesses among others.
