Emirati newspaper accuses Oman of supporting armed formations in Yemen 'to confuse coalition after alleged role as mediator


The Emirati-funded al-Arab newspaper, published in London, accused Oman of supporting and establishing armed formations in Yemen and working to disrupt the Arab coalition.

The newspaper said in a report published on its front page, Wednesday, that the exposure of the Omani role in Yemen prompted Omanis to escape forward and "openly abandon the policy of dissociation that they were claiming", and worked crudely to move their papers in Yemen to confuse the Arab coalition.

According to the newspaper ,"Muscat, who was trying to portray itself as an intermediary, increased with the arrival of Saudi forces of the Arab coalition to the province of Al-Mahra on the border with Oman and started its work to control the smuggled shipments, including spare parts for ballistic missiles and drones used by Houthis to target Saudi territory.

The newspaper added in its report entitled "Muscat Cell is a key platform to confuse the Arab alliance in Yemen", that Muscat is united by a tripartite alliance with Iran and Qatar, and (Muscat) is implementing the policy of the tripartite alliance in Yemen using tribal and social figures and granting them Omani citizenship as well as politicians Yemeni media and officers.

The newspaper pointed out that the "Muscat Cell" worked to demonize the efforts of the Arab coalition in the fight against terrorism in Yemen, and fabricated many news stories that revolve around accusing the UAE of opening alleged "secret prisons" in the liberated areas, and deliberately mentioning the phrase "supported by the UAE" when talking about Security belt forces and elites in Hadhramaut and Shabwa, although the UAE's role is limited to training and qualifying these forces.
