 The 'Al-Ghad Almushreq' TV channel on Tuesday evening hosted an interactive program in which the host Fares Albel invited the military expert Brigadier Yahya Abu Hatem, the  political analyst Abdul Karim al-Madi and Saudi strategic expert general Mastour al-Ahmari.

The program was devoted to the visit of the UN envoy to Yemen Martin Griffiths to Sanaa and Riyadh. It discussed the possible scenarios after the Houthis breached the truce agreement.
 In the program, the guests displayed the possible options available to the Arab coalition and legitimacy to respond to the Houthis actions.

Brigadier Yahya Abu Hatem described their actions as; stemming from an evasive mentality which is addicted to reversing  Covenants and agreements. Abu Hatem aid that he felt that the ‘United Nations does not seek to solve the Yemeni crisis but seeks to manage it only’.

He pointed out that the group does not have a political choice but depends on what Iran dictates on them including giving the Houthis the green light to breach the Hodeida agreement.

In his responses to the presenters’ questions on, what is  the Houthi’s secret in insisting to thwart the Sweden agreement, although it is in their interest; Abdul Karim al-Madi explained that the militias want to deliver messages to the inside and the international community that the decision is theirs and they are the ones who make the moves whenever it suits them.

On the same topic, Almadi reviewed a range of crimes recently committed by the Houthi militias, including imposing royalties (taxes) on the trustees of the ‘Mikhlaf Humed’ people and forced them to fetch in fighters to reinforce their collapsed fronts.

On his part, the Saudi strategic expert General Mastour al-Ahmari presented an analytical reading of the political scene in the light of the ‘ Inaction of the international community in assuming its supposed role’.

Al-Ahmari predicted further vagueness and disruption in solving the Yemeni dossier because the Houthi militias were able to drag the international community into details of misleading and derailing the main issues away from finding solutions for the core problem.

Al-Ahmari continued ‘If the main issue of the negotiations in the ‘Kuwait negotiations’ is to surrender the capital Sana'a to the legitimate government then the main issue in the Sweden negotiations is to hand in the port of Hodeidah to United Nations. Therefore, he added that the ‘Forthcoming negotiations will come perhaps only to talk about commitment to the Sweden Agreement and implementation of its mechanisms’.

It is worth stating that all three guests agreed that the only solution available is the military one as the Houthis only comprehend the language of prevention.
