Yemen: Al-Qaeda Ambush Kills 17 Soldiers, General

News | 11.12.2012 | 13:48
 

One of the deadliest single attacks in months took place in Yemen’s Maarib Province over the weekend, with an army patrol guarding the key oil pipeline in the province ambushed by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

The attack killed 17 people, including soldiers and Major General Nasser Farid, the chief of staff for central Yemeni military operations. The pipeline remains under repair after coming under repeated attack in the past several months.

Officials said that the air strikes over the past two days against Maarib were retaliation for the ambush, but while they reported four people killed in the strikes, there was no indication of who they actually were.

Oil pipeline security has been an ongoing problem for Yemen, not just with AQAP but with local tribal leaders, who have regularly turned to strikes on the pipeline when talks with the central government have turned sour.

Forget about Compromises, it’s Capitulation that US Wants from Iran

July 20 did not happen to be the date of Iran’s nuclear problem’s final settlement. The Iran’s talks with the «big 6» (5 United Nations Security Council members and Germany) are prolonged till November 24... The break itself does not solve any problems. A year will have passed since the parties adopted in Geneva a joint plan of action to guarantee that the Iranian nuclear program is used only for peaceful purposes in exchange for lifting international sanctions from the Islamic Republic. But the stances may drastically change. The talks may end up without any result... Nothing new in the US foreign policy thinking. If there is a dialogue, then it is conducted from the position of strength, direct dictate and threats. The widely publicized diplomatic efforts of President Obama aimed at putting an end to confrontation with Tehran still pursue the very same goal – it’s nor a compromise that is expected from Tehran, but rather complete capitulation.
