Yemen clashes between Shi'ite rebels and tribesmen kill 22: sources

#1 The next violent collision between the Shias and the Salafists.


3rd day in a row of fighting between Shias and Sunni Islamists


Look’s like the Shia in Yemen are kicking the Salafists out of the capitol


Any updates on situation in Yemen?


It appears the UN brokered peace deal between the Shi’ite Houthi rebels and the Sunni-majority government isn’t holding too well since Yemeni President Hadi is warning of a possible “civil war” if things continue the way they seem to be headed.

Al-Qaeda-linked militants in Yemen may not mind the instability.

Not good.


This appears to be somewhat quiet setback for Saudi influence in the region, which I think is a good thing.


This could mean the diminishing of the Sunni dominance in the area, a very good thing!

Of course, the plotters in Washington won’t let their Salafist allies lose influence like this…


Look’s like things are heating up in Yemen now


The Shia Houthi tribesmen who seized the capitol last month, are now accusing the government of turning to Al-Qaeda for help
