Arab states spent $130bn to destroy Syria, Libya, Yemen: Algerian PM

Pretoria,Nov 14:-- Algerian Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia says some regional Arab states have spent $130 billion to o-bliterate Syria, Libya and Yemen.


Ouyahia made the remarks on Saturday at a time when much of the Middle East and North Africa is in turmoil, grappling with different crises, ranging from terrorism and insecurity to political uncertainty and foreign interference.


Algeria maintains that regional states should settle their differences through dialog and that foreign meddling is to their detriment.


Syria has been gripped by foreign-sponsored militancy since 2011. Takfirism, which is a trademark of many terrorist groups operating in Syria, is largely influenced by Wahhabism, the radical ideology dominating Saudi Arabia.


Libya has further been struggling with violence and political uncertainty since the country’s former ruler Muammar Gaddafi was deposed in 2011 and later killed in the wake of a US-led NATO military intervention. Daesh has been taking advantage of the chaos in Libya to increase its presence there.


Yemen has also witnessed a deadly Saudi war since March 2015 which has led to a humanitarian crisis.


Last Month, Qatar's former deputy prime minister Abdullah bin Hamad al-Attiyah said the United Arab Emirates had planned a military invasion of Qatar with thousands of US-trained mercenaries.


The UAE plan for the military action was prepared before the ongoing Qatar rift, but it was never carried out as Washington did not give the green light to it, he noted.


In late April, reports said the UAE was quietly expanding its military presence into Africa and the Middle East, namely in Eritrea and Yemen.
