The participants at the Mecca Summit brought the curtain down on the economic crisis in Jordan. All bets which conspirators had made to harm Jordan and have it join the ranks of the Arab Spring states had failed. It was also proved, beyond any doubt, that the Qataris had, as usual, failed and did not gain anything after trying to separate Jordan from its traditional allies, led by Saudi Arabia, and make it join the Turkish-Iranian-Qatari alliance.

The death of Saleh al-Sammad the president of the so-called Supreme Political Council of the Houthis in Yemen is, in my opinion, considered as the beginning of the Houthis’ end in Yemen. Killing this agent will weaken the Houthi fighters in the raging fronts, especially that the civil war there has recently witnessed several victories in favor of the legitimate forces and their allies on almost all fronts.
