Eventually they succeeded. The Yemeni rebels of al-Zaidi Houthi have captured the strategic port of al-Hudaydah on the Red Sea by putting pressure on the government in Sanaa and in a sort of peril the routes of oil tankers transiting those hot waters.
The militia, armed and confessional, with this operation puts into serious question the legitimacy of President Hadi forcing him to conclude the ongoing negotiations; Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, claims a greater political representation, a fair division of the national wealth and a federal reform of the state administration. The coup was preceded by the conquest of the city of al-Hudaydah, the fourth in the country in importance, the international airport and a military Yemeni’s army base. This city has a strategic importance to the functioning of the entire economic system of the country being the agro-industrial capital of Yemen. The port is also the hub of trade routes in the Red Sea located approximately 40 km from the oil terminal of Ras Isa which handles about 125,000 barrels of crude per day.
The future scenario in the whole region depends on the choices of the Sunni tribes who support al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula to counter the advance of the Shiite militia al-Houthi.
In addition, it is logical hazard, that the entire area will be directly affected by the war in Mesopotamia; if the forces of the Islamic State will succeeded in create "the Caliphate" then also the internal balance of Yemen will suffer a backlash safe.
And in fact, not surprisingly, on 10 October, the site Mareb Press reported the birth of a new confessional fighter movement the Islamic State of Ansar in the Arabian Peninsula in openly antagonism with both al-Houthi as well as the government in Sanaa.
These facts confirm my idea about the ongoing Permanent First War World which affects nowadays in particular the Middle East.
As is the case in Yemen, where the central state is not in a position to exercise the monopoly of force, energies that are released immediately - directed by partisan interests - give rise to phenomena of insurgencies for the preservation of the status quo or for its subversion almost always violent from those who knows how to make use of violence.
