9/23/19 Nasser Arrabyee with the Latest on the War in Yemen

Nasser Arrabyee comes back for an update on the war in Yemen. Saudi forces continue to bomb Yemeni cities, and American neocons continue to insist that the war is being justly prosecuted against the Iran-backed Houthis. Arrabyee says these claims of Iranian support are overblown. As usual, the American media ignores most of the history and nuances of the war altogether.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Saudis Pound Yemen After Houthis’ Truce Offer” (News From Antiwar.com)
  • “Saudi-led coalition launches 27 airstrikes on Yemen in 24 hours: Houthi spokesman” (China.org)
  • “Saudi Arabia begins new operation against Yemen’s Houthi rebels near Hodeidah” (The Defense Post)

Nasser Arrabyee is a Yemeni journalist based in Sana’a, Yemen. He is the owner and director of yemen-now.com. You can follow him on Twitter @narrabyee.
