UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr. Anwar Gargash hailed on Sunday the Yemeni people’s rise against the Houthi militias in Sana’a.

He said: “The control of terrorism and weapons is temporary and Yemen’s natural place is among its Arab fold.”

In addition, he stressed that the Yemeni uprising should be supported.

Regardless of the results of the revolt, it has demonstrated that the Iranian Houthi militia is rejected in Yemen, continued the minister.

Furthermore, Gargash stated that the purpose of the war in Yemen was protecting the Arabian Peninsula from Iranian expansion and the Houthi gangs.

The Palestinian Authority could collapse in the coming months, Norwegian Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide said on Monday, citing a lack of funding, continuing violence and the fact that half a million Palestinians are not allowed to work in Israel.

"The situation is extremely dire. The Palestinian Authority, with whom we work closely, are warning us that they might be collapsing this summer," Barth Eide told Reuters.

"If it collapses, you could end up having another Gaza, which would be terrible for everybody, including the people of Israel," he added.

Norway chairs the international donor group to the Palestinians and is a backer of the PA.
