Yemen's Houthi group has fired a cruise missile towards a nuclear power plant in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, the group's television service reported on its website on Sunday, without providing any evidence.

EGYPT: WE WILL NOT ALLOW THE ETHIOPIAN RENAISSANCE DAM TO BE FILLED THIS YEAR

 
 

Egypt's Minister of Irrigation and Water Resources, Mohamed Abdelati, said that the Nahdha Dam negotiations with Ethiopia reached a "dead end".

"This is impossible and the solution is to negotiate, and Ethiopia has not started to fill the dam so far and we will not allow it to be filled this year," he said in a press statement Saturday. .

He pointed out that "Egypt began to feel the impact of the dam on the downstream countries since May 2013, and there was negotiation of terms of reference for the selection of the company and the way to deal with them."

The Egyptian minister pointed out that it was assumed that "Egypt sits with Sudan and Ethiopia to make a statement about the dam but that a substantial disagreement prevented it."

Egypt announced two weeks ago the freezing of technical negotiations with Sudan and Ethiopia after a tripartite meeting in Cairo, after the Egyptian officials rejected the amendments of the two countries on the studies of the dam and its filling and operation.

Egypt fears possible negative impacts of the Ethiopian dam on its 55.5 billion cubic meters of water.

THE APPOINTMENT OF SHARIF AS THE LEADER OF THE ALLIANCE ANGERS IRAN

 
 
The meeting of defense ministers of the countries of the Islamic Coalition to confront terrorism did not go unnoticed by Iranian officials.

The Iranian daily "The Nation" reported that Iran is infuriated by the Saudi-Pakistani rapprochement, and senior Iranian foreign ministry officials said they had continued with Pakistan to urge it to reconsider its decision to be the head of its war in the Saudi-led Islamic alliance.

"They insist that it is a Sunni alliance against the Shiites, and we are struggling to convince them that it is an alliance against terrorism," a Pakistani official told the Nation. "They are moving the closer we get to Saudi Arabia."

The Pakistani official added to the newspaper that diplomatic contacts between Iran and Pakistan were underway on the issue and Pakistan hoped that Iran would calm down in the coming days. 
"We have assured them that we will withdraw from the coalition if it proves to be sectarian, and so far we plan to wipe out terrorism and not any Islamic sect," the official said.

Pakistan recently approved the leadership of General Rahil Sharif, the former commander of the Pakistani army, on the leadership of the Islamic Alliance against Terrorism. Riyadh waited for Islamabad to respond for several months before General Rahil gave the green light to lead the alliance, which angered Iran.

Since the establishment of the Islamic Alliance, Iranian officials have said they feel this alliance is directed against them, and justify this by not inviting them, Iraq or Syria.
