(YEMEN) JUST IN: Vice president Ali Mohsen Saleh has condemned Saturday’s Houthi drone attack on the Red Sea port of Al-Mocha, which damaged infrastructure and burned a warehouse storing goods and merchandise of local importers and aid organizations.

#AceNewsReport – Sept.13: The senior official described the Houthi militia’s attacks on civil facilities in Yemen, as well as in Saudi Arabia, as a blatant defiance of international efforts aimed to bring peace in the conflict-ridden country.

#AceDailyNews says according to Vice President that this crime has shown again that Houthi militia has misused ‘Stockholm Agreement’ and exploit the humanitarian aspect to mislead the international community,” Mohsen said in a report from state news agency SABA.

The port’s manager, Abdul Malik Al-Sharabae, earlier said that the Houthis fired four missiles and three explosives-rigged drones – with two of them reportedly intercepted and destroyed – targeting the port.

The Yemeni government, through its foreign affairs ministry, also said that the Houthi attack was “a flagrant defiance of the UN-led efforts to mitigate the humanitarian crisis and put an end of the war in Yemen.”

The ministry statement also called on the UN and international community to condemn Houthi crimes and take firm action to hold the perpetrators accountable.

(RIYADH, S.A) JUST IN: Saudi Arabia says it has intercepted three missiles and three drones fired by Houthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.06: One was destroyed over the eastern city of Dammam, where falling shrapnel injured two children and damaged buildings, the defence ministry said…..

#AceDailyNews says according to BBC Saudis intercept Houthi missiles the defence ministry said The Houthis – who frequently mount such cross-border attacks – said they had targeted Saudi oil facilities.

The other attacks were aimed at oil sites in the southern provinces of Jizan and Najran, the group said. 

There are no immediate reports of impact on Saudi oil facilities.

In 2019, the rebels claimed responsibility for a drone attack on two facilities run by Saudi state-owned oil company Aramco. It temporarily reduced crude oil production by 5.7 million barrels a day – about half the kingdom’s output at the time. 

Saudi Arabia entered the Yemen war in 2015, on the side of the internationally recognised government, shortly after the Houthis seized the capital, Sanaa.

The UN has called the civil war there the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. As of March 2020, it had verified the deaths of at least 7,700 civilians, most caused by Saudi-led coalition air strikes. 

Monitoring groups believe the true death toll is far higher, however. The US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED) said in October 2019 that it had recorded more than 100,000 fatalities, including 12,000 civilians killed in direct attacks.

The Houthis in 2019 launched a drone strike at the base during a military parade, killing at least six military personnel, including a high-ranking intelligence official.

Footage of the attack showed a drone exploding over a podium around which dozens of military personnel were standing.

The Arab Parliament condemned the attack on Al-Anad airbase, saying it holds the militia, and the Iranian regime that supports it, fully responsible.

(YEMEN) Petroleum Piracy War Report: Company says the Saudi-US coalition continues to cause more killings in the Arab country by seizing ships carrying oil derivatives to the port of Hudaydah #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.17: We call for an end to the piracy and the arbitrary conduct of the US-led war coalition countries in their continuous seizure of ships carrying petroleum products and preventing them from entering the port of Hydaydah,” it added…..

#AceDailyNews says that US, Saudi Arabia cause more killings in Yemen by seizing oil tankers: Petroleum Company: In a statement on Monday, the company said the Saudi-US coalition is still holding four oil vessels, including two gas tankers containing 60,000 liters of gasoline and diesel for a period of more than eight months, the company said, according to Yemen’s al-Masirah television network.

Yemen Petroleum Company also blamed the coalition countries and the United Nations for the catastrophic consequences of the coalition’s continued piracy.

US blocking political solution to Yemen crisis: AnsarullahThe spokesman of the popular Houthi Ansarullah movement censures the United States’ interventionist measures in Yemen.

“The continuation of seizing ships carrying oil derivatives by the war coalition is a blatant violation of international norms and treaties that criminalize damage to the needs of civilians, and we condemn the dubious international silence on the continuation of this crime,” it said.

Yemen has been beset by violence and chaos since 2015, when Saudi Arabia and its allies launched a devastating military campaign to reinstall the overthrown government of Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in Sana’a and crush the Ansarullah movement.

The war, however, has failed to reach its goals, and instead, killed hundreds of thousands of Yemeni people and put millions more at risk of starvation.

The Saudi-led war on Yemen has also destroyed much of the poor country’s infrastructure and displaced millions of Yemenis.

Yemeni army forces, allies will seize control over Ma’rib if pro-Hadi militants dismiss truce, says governor a senior Yemeni official says army forces and fighters from Popular Committees will overrun the central province of Ma’rib in case Hadi loyalists refuse truce.

Earlier this year, the UN aid chief to Yemen, Mark Lowcock, said 16 million Yemenis are going hungry, with five million on the brink of famine. Lowcock added that Yemen could face the worst “man-made famine” that the world has seen for decades.

In spite of the devastating Saudi-led airstrikes against Yemen, the Western powers, particularly the US and the UK, have continued to sell weapons and military equipment to Riyadh throughout the war.

On Sunday, the Saudi-led coalition continued to bomb a number of provinces, injuring civilians and causing damage to public and private property.

The coalition also launched two raids on Madghal and Raghwan districts in the oil-rich Ma’rib province, al-Masirah reported.

#arab, #oil, #petroleum, #tankers, #yemen

(WASHINGTON,D.C.) JW TPS REPORT: In its short tenure the Biden administration has extended a special reprieve for five different groups of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.02: The most recent was renewed a few days ago for thousands of people from Yemen, the Middle Eastern Islamic nation well known as an Al #Qaeda breeding ground. Officially, the provisional amnesty is known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a humanitarian measure designed to shield undocumented aliens from deportation during emergencies. …

JW REPORT: “Temporary” Reprieve: It is supposed to be a short-term solution for foreign nationals that do not quality as refugees but cannot immediately return home because of difficulties caused by factors such as violence, natural disasters, or political and economic instability.

TPS, which is typically granted in 18-month increments, not only protects foreign nationals from deportation it also allows them to work in the U.S.

The Obama administration went crazy with TPS, renewing it for tens of thousands of Hondurans and Nicaraguans more than a decade and a half after a hurricane hit the Central American nations, prolonging it for Africans two years after originally issuing it due to Ebola, and repeatedly restoring it for tens of thousands of Haitians years after an earthquake struck the island. During its two terms the Obama administration never missed an opportunity to offer illegal immigrants reprieve, using inclement weather in the U.S., a virus, natural disasters and tainted water in an American city to extend the perk. Nationals of Yemen have been protected by both Democrats and Republicans, receiving TPS over “ongoing armed conflict” under Obama and two extensions under Trump. A few days ago, the Biden administration renewed the TPS for Yemenis yet again, protecting approximately 2,180 people.

“Yemen continues to experience worsening humanitarian and economic conditions that prevent individuals from safely returning to their homes,” said Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in a statementannouncing the “re-designation.” He added that the administration “will continue to protect and offer these individuals a place of residency temporarily in the United States.” The measure will protect Yemenis who previously benefitted from TPS through March 2023 and will allow about 480 additional Yemenis to qualify. It marks the fifth TPS extension issued by the Biden administration since taking office this year. In January TPS was extended for 6,700 Syrians and 1,800 additional Syrians were allowed to file applications for the 18-month reprieve. In early March 320,000 Venezuelans received TPS for 18 months and in mid-March Burmese nationals got it for the same period after a military coup and security forces’ violence against civilians. Later in March the administration extended TPS yet again for more than 100,000 Haitians over the economic crisis that persists more than a decade after the earthquake that provoked the original TPS.

Yemen was first designated for TPS by the Obama administration in 2015after a northern opposition group called Houthis initiated a violent, territorial expansion across the country and forced Yemeni government leaders to exile in Saudi Arabia. When it expired, the Obama administration extended it another 18 months on the “dual bases of ongoing armed conflict and extraordinary and temporary conditions.”When that second extension expired, the Trump administration renewed it twice, first under Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in 2018 and again under acting Secretary Chad Wolf. The latest extension is warranted because, although it is in its seventh year, the protracted conflict has shown no sign of abating and fighting between Houthi and government forces continues, according to a Federal Register announcement issued this month.

Yemen is a hotbed of terrorism that serves as the headquarters of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). Nevertheless, shortly after getting elected President Biden revoked the terrorist designation of a Yemen-based militant group, a move that was followed by a fat “humanitarian assistance” check from American taxpayers. The Federal Register bulletin announcing the group’s (Ansarallah, also known as Partisans of God) terrorist classification says it has committed or has attempted to commit, or poses a significant risk of committing, or has participated in training to commit, acts of terrorism that threaten the security of U.S. nationals or the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States. The international community strongly opposed classifying Ansarallah as a terrorist entity, asserting it would come with repercussions for humanitarian operations. Days after rescinding the terrorist designation, the Biden administration gave Yemen $191 million in assistance.

Saudi aggressors looking for escape from Yemen quagmire: Minister

Saudi aggressors looking for escape from Yemen quagmire: MinisterThe Yemeni defense minister says Saudi Arabia is looking for a way to get out of the Yemen quagmire.

For the past two weeks, al-Qaeda terrorists have been deployed in vast areas off the coast in Abyan under the command of a high-profile militant identified as Salem al-Shina, with the operations being coordinated with the Salafist Islah Party amd the Saudi command center, the report said.

According to local sources, al-Qaeda terrorists are roaming publicly in the areas of Wadi Hamra, Yahmas, al-Maraqasha and al-Wazi’, and have repeatedly met with senior Saudi military figures at their barracks.

According to al-Akhbar, al-Qaeda terrorists launched a series of attacks last week on the positions of Southern Transitional Council (STC) separatists in order to secure the arrival of fellow militants from Syria.

Over the past few weeks, Ma’rib has been the scene of large-scale operations by the Yemeni troops and allied Popular Committees fighters, who are pushing against Saudi-led mercenaries and militants loyal to Yemen’s former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and its other regional allies, launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of Yemen’s former president back to power and crushing the popular Ansarullah movement. 

Yemeni armed forces advance further towards heart of Ma’rib

Yemeni armed forces advance further towards heart of Ma’ribYemen’s army and Popular Committees liberate more areas from Saudi-led forces in the countryside of the west-central Ma’rib Province’s capital.

The Yemeni armed forces and allied Popular Committees have, however, gone from strength to strength against the Saudi-led invaders, and left Riyadh and its allies bogged down in the country.

The Saudi-led military aggression, meanwhile, has left more than 200,000 Yemenis dead, and displaced millions of people.

It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases across the country.

(YEMEN) JUST IN: Houthis deport the nations last three ‘Jewish Families’ leaving only four elderly Jewish people according to Saudi Daily #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.31: The last three Jewish families in Yemen were deported by the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, leaving only four elderly Jews in the country, after heavy pressure by the Houthis, the London-based Saudi daily Asharq Al-Awsat reported over the weekend:

Yemen: ‘The families, totaling 13 people, told Asharq Al-Awsat that they were now searching for a new home and had resisted leaving their home, but finally agreed to leave after the Houthis made their departure a condition for the release of Levi Salem Marhabi, a Jew who was captured by the Houthis about six years ago’

“Almost all remaining Jews in Yemen deported – Saudi media,” by Tzvi Joffre, Jerusalem Post, March 29, 2021:

“They gave us a choice between staying in the midst of harassment and keeping Salem a prisoner or leaving and having him released,” one of the deported Jews told Asharq Al-Awsat. “History will remember us as the last of Yemeni Jews who were still clinging to their homeland until the last moment.”

Marhabi was arrested by the Houthis for helping a Yemeni Jewish family move an old Torah scroll out of the country. Despite a court ruling that he was innocent and should be released, he was reportedly held as a bargaining chip, according to the daily…..

(RIYADH, S.A.) State Dept Report: Efforts to end Yemen’s conflict received a setback on Friday after the Iran-backed Houthis rejected the US peace proposal #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.13: Earlier, the US Special Envoy for Yemen Tim Lenderking said the Iran-backed militia is giving priority to a military campaign to take Marib over “suspending the war and moving relief to the Yemeni people.”

Houthis reject US cease-fire plan in new setback to peace efforts: ‘Houthi spokesman Mohamed Abdelsalam told Almasirah TV that the American proposal for a nationwide cease-fire “has nothing in it and represents the Saudi and the UN vision.”
The American proposal doesn’t include ceasing fire or breaking the siege, and it would lead to a resumption of a blockade, the spokesman added’

March 12, 2021 20:10:

“Tragically, and somewhat confusingly for me, it appears that the Houthis are prioritizing a military campaign” in Marib, Lenderking told an online forum.

Lenderking said Saudi Arabia’s leadership is providing “full support” to the US effort to end the war in Yemen.

He urged the Houthis to respond to a “sound plan” for a nationwide ceasefire in Yemen that has been put before them.

Japan’s Foreign Minister Motegi Toshimitsu criticized the Houthis’ cross-border attacks on Saudi Arabia and Aramco oil facilities, and called on Yemen to stop the conflict “Japan is concerned about the conflict in Yemen,” Motegi said in reply to a question by Arab News Japan at a press conference.

“This has been continuing for a long time and is putting many civilians in a difficult humanitarian situation. Japan strongly condemns the continuous cross-border attacks by the Houthis on Saudi Arabia,” he added.

The Arab coalition destroyed a hostile Houthi air defense system on Yemen’s Marib front on Friday, according to Al-Ekhbariya.

The destruction of the Houthi system included all its components and its foreign operators were also killed, according to the Arab coalition.

“We support operations carried out by the Yemeni army and tribes in Marib to advance and protect civilians,” the coalition said. 

On Sunday, the coalition shot down a drone targeting an oil tank yard in Ras Tanura Port and a missile heading for an Aramco residential area in Dhahran.

The Saudi cabinet said the two attacks were blatant violations of international law and norms.

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan reiterated the Kingdom’s support for a political solution in Yemen.

The attacks “represent a threat to the stability of global energy supplies, affecting the entire global economy and endangering the lives of Saudi workers in Aramco and thousands more from 80 different nationalities, including Americans,” said Princess Reema bint Bandar, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the US.

On Thursday, the US, along with France, Germany, Italy and the UK issued a strongly worded statement saying the Houthis actions were threatening peace efforts and causing further humanitarian suffering.

Yemeni government forces on Friday announced seizing control of several locations in the northern province of Hajja after a fresh assault against the Houthis.

The Defense Ministry said that troops had liberated a large swathe of land in Abes district after fighting with the militia.

In Taiz, troops consolidated their gains in Al-Kadaha, west of Taiz, after opening a new lifeline road to the besieged city.

Local army commanders said the main objective of current military operations in Taiz and Hajja was relieving Houthi military pressure on troops in the central city of Marib.

Meanwhile, foreign envoys and rights groups have strongly condemned a fire at a Houthi-controlled migrant center and demanded that the rebels give investigators access to the site and the wounded.  

The UK’s Ambassador to Yemen, Michael Aron, on Friday condemned the incident and called for an immediate and objective probe and unhindered access to the injured migrants.

Anger has grown in Yemen and around the world after Sunday’s blaze shone a spotlight on the Iran-backed militia’s “inhumane” treatment of refugees.

Grim videos and images of those who perished have appeared on Twitter, with calls condemning the Houthi’s silence on the blaze.

Mwatana, a leading Yemeni human rights organization, also blamed the Houthis for the fire and accused them of arbitrarily detaining survivors and relatives of the victims in order to stop them from talking about the incident.

A senior figure in Sanaa’s Eritrean migrant community told AP at least 44 migrants were killed and that the death toll could be much higher.

YEMEN: ‘ Top leader of Shiite Rebels will travel to Geneva for UN-Talks ‘

#AceNewsReport – SANAA, Yemen (AP) – The second-in-command of Yemen’s Shiite rebels on Wednesday assailed the Saudi-led airstrikes pounding his group’s positions and allied forces, insisting they are ready to travel to Geneva for U.N.-mediated peace talks on ending the country’s civil war.

Mohammed al-Houthi, who heads the Houthi rebels’ powerful Revolutionary Council, also told The Associated Press that exiled President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi derailed negotiations by demanding the rebels withdraw from territory they captured as a precondition for talks.

YEMEN: ‘ GOVERNMENT IS SET TO BE SWORN INTO POWER DESPITE GPC OPPOSITION ‘

#AceWorldNews – YEMEN – Nov.09 – A new Yemeni government is set to be sworn in Sunday, despite opposition from the General People’s Congress (GPC), the ruling party in the country’s parliament led by former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, and the Houthis, a powerful Shia rebel group that controls much of south Yemen.

'President Ali Abdullah Saleh '

‘President Ali Abdullah Saleh ‘

After President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi announced his new government on Friday, the Houthis and GPC rejected it, with Saleh criticizing it as “unrepresentative.” GPC leaders announced they would pull their members out of the new cabinet, and have ousted President Hadi from the party leadership.

' General People's Congress in Benghazi '

‘ General People’s Congress in Benghazi ‘

Saleh, who is thought to have tacitly supported the Houthi insurgency, accused Hadi of soliciting UN sanctions against him and two Houthi leaders for attempting to destabilize the country.

After seizing the capital, Sanaa, in September, the Houthis demanded that Hadi appoint a new government, criticizing the regime for its close cooperation with a conservative Sunni Islamist party.

Meanwhile, sectarian violence between Houthis and Sunni Al-Qaeda militias continues to ravage the country.

On Saturday, Al-Qaeda took responsibility for killing dozens of Houthis in twin attacks in central Yemen.

‘ Possibility of the South Becoming an Independent State is Closer Than at Any Other Point in Yemen’s History ‘

#AceNewsServices – YEMEN – October 17 – Popular, political and military activity calling for the separation of southern Yemen from the republic of Yemen picked up its pace this week in the areas of Aden and Hadramout.

The possibility of the south becoming an independent state is closer than at any other point in Yemen’s history.

Unity and separation are two issues that concern everyone in the region.

They mainly concern Yemen’s major neighbour, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

When southern and northern Yemen united, it was backed by people from both sides but it was not the product of popular demands or activity. It was the result of a struggle over governance in the south among communist powers.

Former President Ali Abdullah Saleh seized the chance to expand his authority when the South’s political leader Ali Salem al-Beidh – who almost lost his rule – called for unification. Saleh and Beidh signed the unification agreement in 1989 and instead of achieving unity and power sharing, Saleh dominated authority in both northern and southern Yemen.

The promises of unification were not fulfilled and it became a burden on northern Yemen, leading to the neglect and appropriation of southern Yemen.

Saleh was thus the only winner and ruled over the country alone.

‘ Middle East is Ruled by Militias That Have Risen Since Arab Spring ‘

#AceNewsServices (Opinion) – October 14 – Embattled governments in Iraq and Syria have come to rely on Shiite militias as their armies have crumbled in the face of mostly Sunni insurgents and rebels.

In Libya, various armed groups loosely allied with two rival governments have fought over bullet-riddled airports.

Shiite rebels in Yemen have swept down from the north, capturing the capital and, on Tuesday, a key port city.

The chaos unleashed by the Arab Spring has led to the rise of powerful militias – including many Islamic extremist groups – across a Middle East where many central governments have been exposed as weak.

Some of the groups are allied with the governments, while others are fighting to topple them.

Some – like the Kurdish peshmerga in northern Iraq – are seen as vital allies for the West.

All could prove to be major obstacles to peace or stability in the region.

SEA: ‘ Rise of the Child Soldiers of Pakistan ‘

#AceNewsServices – PAKISTAN – October 11 – The phenomenon of “child soldiers” is not new to this globe. From the far western shores of Americas, to Africa and Asia, the world continues to witness the rise of soldiers that are mere children

' Child Soldiers of Pakistan '

‘ Child Soldiers of Pakistan ‘

The world is stunned beyond limits to see that humanity has fallen to this level in the exploitation of young innocent children as child recruits for fundamentalist agendas.

The use of child soldiers has spread to almost all the global armed conflict. Though an exact number is impossible to define, thousands of child soldiers are illegally serving in armed conflict around the world.

According to Do Something Org, many countries are allegedly reported on use of under-age soldiers, these include Afghanistan, Colombia, India, Iraq, Israel, Libya, Mali, Pakistan, Thailand, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, and more.

 I am sure many are already geared up with the anti-Pakistani stereotypes that deem that whole of Pakistan is a terrorist country and on this list,  I get this hatred towards Pakistan is a global trend but not many of you know the dynamics of child militia here. And am taking this opportunity to shed some light on various important areas.

Pakistan|Trending Local Child Soldiers issue

The growing phenomenon of child militants in Pakistan is a horrific reality, one mirrored in various conflicts throughout history. Young innocent children are targeted because they can be easily brain washed by militant groups.

The cycle of poverty, large family size and economic hardships are factors that leave vulnerable parents little choice but to send children in local madrassas as they are free of cost.   The constitution Article 25-A says the State shall provide free and compulsory education to children between ages of 5 to 16. However that’s not being followed as millions of children are out of school and our literary rate is appalling low at 48%.

"Madrasa" is the Arabic word for any type of educational institution, whether secular or religious.

“Madrasa” is the Arabic word for any type of educational institution, whether secular or religious.

Most people have no choice but to send their children to religious schools or madrassas as. Moreover, there are huge discrepancies because education in Pakistan is heavily influenced by religion and in recent times Wahabi agendas.

The main source of funding for these madrasa groups is coming from Saudi Arabia. In fact, this whole phenomenon that we are confronting, which Al Qaeda is a part of, is very closely associated with Saudi Arabia’s financial and religious projects for the Muslim world as a whole. Its in greater interests to keep Pakistani children stuck into poverty cycles as they serve a greater agenda, shame on Pakistani government for colluding against its own.

Local madrassas cater Pakistani children as well as international students who avail the lucrative scholarship fundings  from Persian Gulf and Saudi Arabia. 

However coming back to Pakistan, the different militant groups including TTP, LeT and so on have been able to harness the young Pakistani children in scores through enticing tactics.

Local Militant Recruitment Mechanism

The militant have sinister agendas however on the forefront they are able to cajole and manipulate young children by reminding them the sufferings of the Muslim world and that they have to play a role in eradication of misery; through this jihad.

Upon meeting some under-age boy militants in Swat, I found out that for years they have attended the madrassas whose lecturers and mentors taught them things like ” The Pakistan Army is the ally of the Western capitalist world; they the  imperialists are all the enemies of Islam. The fight against them is justified; they are apostates, the friends of the infidels.”

The second message drummed into them is one which the world is facing today. The increasing intolerance towards Muslims and followers of faith Islam within their own regions and in the western world. Sadly this is capitalized upon very well by the militant groups. The young recruits are taught that they have to stand up against the helplessness of Muslim women, daughters and sisters that are getting dishonored by non-Muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine etc.

They also watch videos purportedly showing the killing of Muslims by non-Muslims in Afghanistan and the Middle East. Instructors tell them that a war is being waged against Islam.

‘ Child Soldiers Recruited by Saudi Arabia as Terrorists as young as five ‘

That the western world is at war with Islam has given a trump card to Pakistan’s militants for this sort of radical enticement of vulnerable children.

These main themes in lectures are taught to in both the senior recruits camps (ages 16 and older) and junior ones (ages 7 to 15), all are centered on vengeance and the need to do something for the wronged Muslims.The children are completely isolated from the normal outside world.

The young would-be suicide bombers are also persuaded by the promise of Paradise. This is, I repeat a huge blasphemy against the real teachings for if have to view from Islamic point of view; suicide is strictly forbidden along with the killing of innocent persons. Allah, God is the author of life that has granted us the gift of life and we mere humans don’t have the authority to take it.

This using of innocent children by militancy has to stop now. But. The inability of the Pakistan army to meet internal security challenges effectively is a particularly worrying factor. Three generations of Pakistani children are suffering due to the impact of this futile jihadi indoctrination.

It is time to seriously put an end to this madness, before it consumes us within the dark abysses of hatred and destruction.I am so exhausted to waking up in the mornings with the first thought in mind,What the hell happened Pakistan? And then trying to fix it some how in my way.

Though, we can’t bring back the already dead Pakistani children militants and can hardly ease the misery of the grieving parents, it is time for Pakistan to asses the complex root causes behind this phenomenon and design solutions for protection of children from becoming part of militancy.

UNITED STATES: ‘ Self-Guided and Unmanned Swarm Boats Ready to Join Navy ‘

#AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES (Norfolk) – Self-guided unmanned patrol boats that can leave warships they’re protecting and swarm and attack potential threats on the water could join the Navy’s fleet within a year, defence officials say, adding the new technology could one day help stop attacks like the deadly 2000 bombing of the USS Cole off Yemen.

The Arlington-based Office of Naval Research demonstrated the autonomous swarm boat technology over two weeks in August on the James River near Fort Eustis in Virginia – not far from one of the Navy’s largest fleet concentration areas.

It said the Navy simulated a transit through a strait, just like the routine passage of U.S. warships through the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf.
