Tel Aviv Seeking Instability In Yemen the Most
The Tel Aviv regime is most probably engaged “through many channels” in spreading instability in Yemen, a political analyst stated.
"It is very probable that the Israelis by way of many different organizations can have a role in sowing instability in Yemen,” said Moufid Jaber, an expert with the Center for Middle East Studies and Public Relations in Beirut, in an interview with Press TV on Sunday. 

He also stated that Israelis might certainly be involved in plots to destabilize Yemen "through many channels that lead to al-Qaeda” and also by "political means through the US.” 

The political analyst made the comments a few days after Yemeni security sources said at least 25 people were killed in a bomb attack at the entrance to a police academy in the capital, Sana’a, on July 11. 

On February 27, Yemen’s former dictator Ali Abdullah Saleh formally stepped down and handed over power to his deputy Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi. The power transfer occurred under a Saudi-backed deal brokered by the [Persian] Gulf Cooperation Council in April 2011 and signed by Saleh in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, on November 23, 2011. 

The new Yemeni president, who is a UK-trained field marshal, was sworn in on February 25 following a single-candidate presidential election on February 21, which was supported by the United States and Saudi Arabia. 


"The US of course as well as Saudi Arabia are trying to keep the old regime as it is because this regime is and has always been loyal to the US and the political line of the US and Saudi Arabia,” Jaber stated.
