Khusitov accused of mining the sea approaches to the Suez Canal

24
Hussites with the direct support of Tehran pose a threat to the movement of ships in the Bab el-Mandeb Strait, which is one of the most congested sea passages in the world. With such accusations made Colonel Turki al-Maliki, the official representative of the Sunni (Saudi) coalition, which occupies part of Yemen.




He said that since the outbreak of hostilities in Yemen’s territory, coalition forces led by Saudi Arabia have detected 86 sea mines in the area of ​​vessels moving to the Suez Canal, 36 of which over the past week. And supposedly all these mines set on the route of movement of ships Hussites.

The forces of the Saudi coalition, according to the officer, are taking all necessary measures to ensure the freedom of movement of ships. The actions of the Hussites in the Bab el-Mandeb strait zone indicate a violation of international law and pose a threat to stability in the region and reconciliation of the warring parties in Yemen, said Turki al-Maliki.

In Riyadh and Washington, they are inclined to believe that the mining of the most important marine artery by Hussites occurs only by direct order from Tehran. Owners of shipping companies just ignore this problem, because they do not want to increase insurance costs. Write about this Arabic-language media. At the same time, the media of the Gulf countries do not report on how the Hussites manage to mine a busy sea route considering that there are constantly warships of a number of countries, including the United States.

      In winter it is problematic, and in summer special ice-class container ships are needed. And this is a lot of money. Russia set up a company and build several dozen such container ships and offer its services, then the Northern Sea Route will come to life.

    It remains for some American destroyer to undermine and then they will start throwing out in Yemen, because Saudis do poorly in the fight against the Hussites behind which Iran stands --- the main goal of the United States in the Middle East.

      In fact, they came to suppress Shiite influence in this country, because the most oil-bearing region of Saudi Arabia is inhabited by Shiite Arabs. They are afraid that they will be thrown over them.

          Husites are Shiite-style Islamists, such as ISIS, Sunni-style Islamists. There is no need to idealize them and present them as fighters for all good versus all bad things, if ISIS wants to build a caliphate, Husits, an imamat, and the difference is microscopic there. Unless of course you divide the Islamists into friends and foes.

              Shiites live in neighboring countries and this is the next step for the Hussites after their victory in Yemen. Why do you think the rulers of neighboring countries have become aroused, or do you think they have nothing more to do than just burn the human and financial reserves against the Hussites.

    "At the same time, the media of the Persian Gulf countries do not report how the Houthis manage to mine the busy sea route, taking into account the fact that warships of a number of countries, including the United States, are constantly on duty there." laughing
    Their "warships" dry cargo ships and tankers do not see where to hope for them. laughing
    In general, there is a question: what is the point of the Hussites mining the sea route? Saud chase?

      In that area, pirates sail in fishing boats from the African coast, which is why the destroyers will not appear from the Arabian coast in fishing boats. request . In the event of a tanker or container ship being blown up on a mine in a similar mine, the Yemenis will be deprived of fishing in the sea, which will lead to even greater hunger.

    This is not profitable for the majority now. We need ice-class vessels, icebreakers have to pay for escort. And ours also limit the number of campaigns who are "allowed" to use the NSR. In about twenty years, when the ice melts in the Arctic Ocean and the Northern Sea Route is mostly free of ice - maybe

    You know, dear Comrade Taiga2018 - East, as one movie character used to say - CASE THIN. You think that the Saudis the occupiers, Comrade Krasnodar - that they came there at the invitation of a legitimate government. After all, both that, and another corresponds to reality.

    This is the East, and here the devil will break his leg in these intricacies of eastern diplomacy.
    Here are two of the most famous examples.
    1st example
    December 1979. Soviet troops invade Afghanistan. Incidentally, at the request of the legitimate government. Although, of course, this "legitimate government" was sewn with "white thread". But nonetheless. At the request of the legitimate government. For some we were brothers, friends who came to their aid - for others, invaders. Find, if you like, a song by EMNIP "Blue Berets" called "Young"
    There are such words
    This is the East, and here the devil will break his leg in these intricacies of eastern diplomacy.
    - Do not leave on the birthplace armor
    Motors blaze to heaven
    What can you do - this their the mountains
    We are for them the occupiers in the country.

    2st example
    Present Syria. We brought in a certain contingent there at the request of the legitimate government of Syria. And we are helping this country. Probably many of the Syrians think so. But not all. For those who are part of the opposition forces. Not ISIS, but the opposition, no matter what, irrelevant, or moderate, which are fighting against Assad's "tyranny" - we are by no means friends. Maybe not the invaders, since our ground forces are not there, but they are not friends either. It's still the East. Therefore, for some it is one thing, for others it is another. And here you have to be very careful in evaluations like who is who.

    As for the mining of the strait.

    Strait Bab El Mandeb divided into The Great, or the Strait of Dact El Mayun, about 20 km wide, and Small, or Bab-Iskander Strait. The width of the latter is about 3 km. The area of ​​the island dividing the strait and belonging to Yemen (Perim or Mayun island) is 13 km².
    If they mine the Bab-Iskander Strait, then they are in their right here, it is in their territorial waters. But if the Dact al-Mayun Strait, through which the route to Suez and the EMNIP Strait, is international with two fairways for tankers with a width of 2 km, then they may actually be "tapped in the face." Moreover, not only Saudis and Americans will subscribe to this, but also many European countries. I would not be surprised that if Russia. At one time there our ships protected peaceful ships from Somali pirates. After all, the explosion of the tank is enough and that's it. The spill will be plugged like a cork. And this is not beneficial to anyone, since the price of freight and other costs will fly up

    Khusitov accused of mining the sea approaches to the Suez Canal


    Husits ​​fellows, there is a series of videos that one commentator sounds good, but with obscene words, I can’t insert a link like a mattress technique laughing

    And the Suez Canal? Well, Duc is an alternative five thousand nautical miles shorter from China to Europe.
