The Terrorist groups, particularly al-Qaeda and the ISIS ( in the Horn of Africa), the military wing of the Muslim Brotherhood's internationally-designated terrorist organization, have been striving for a long period of time to extend their influence and political control over the southern and coastal areas bordering the Red Sea , Gulf of Aden and the Arab Sea as a strategic dream that can control international security and stability in the region and even the world's various economic and strategic interests. At the same time, the axis of evil countries in the region, particularly Iran and its allies Qatar and others, Thus using the Huthi militias and their flagrant alliance with the Brotherhood and its various terrorist-backed branches to extend their influence on the international waterways and their geographical surroundings in Yemen and the Horn of Africa.

Although the axis of Iranian  evil and its Huthi rbels  and Brotherhood tools and terrorist groups may differ in their directions, they are clearly in harmony in methods and methods, but they are perfectly consistent and meet the same terrorist objectives and schemes that target the security and stability of the region and the world through control and control of international waterways. Including the harmony of the Houthi-funded and Iranian-backed militias controlling the coastal areas bordering the Red Sea, while the Muslim Brotherhood and its terrorist wings funded by Qatar are operating in control of the southern regions of Yemen as well as any areas overlooking the international waterways in the Horn of Africa. That the two sides of the Iranian Houthi and the brotherhood of Qatar in any square conflict on those strategic areas .. In a clear reflection of the scheme of sharing and exchange and harmony between the axis of the axis of international evil in the region and tools Iran and Qatar.

The conflict in Yemen and the Horn of Africa has raised serious risks on international shipping lines, which could hinder the passage of ships in the Bab al-Mandab Strait, which is crossed by about 4 million barrels per day of oil, in the Gulf of Aden and in the Red Sea, where the number of oil vessels that pass 21 thousand pieces of sea Annually, equivalent to 57 pieces per day, from which every year 25 thousand vessels constitute a large part of the global economy.

The Bab al-Mandab Strait and the international waterways in the Gulf of Aden, the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea are of utmost importance to all countries of the world. They represent the transit gate for ships through the Suez Canal.

Yemen is controlled by the Bab al-Mandab Strait on the one side and by the other by the states of Eritrea and Djibouti. The terrorist activities of the country-funded extremist Islamic groups, as well as the Iranian-funded Houthi coup in Yemen and the Horn of Africa, pose a serious threat to Gulf oil exports and products from East Asian countries. All from the Suez Canal.

The global oil trade will be affected, resulting in a $ 5 per barrel increase in oil costs, a 6,000-mile increase in freight costs and an expectation of additional transportation costs of more than $ 45 million per day, which will bring damage to every home and every person in the world. .

In 2002, al-Qaeda attacked a French oil tanker off Yemen. As a result of the attack, insurance premiums for oil tankers passing through Yemen and the Horn of Africa rose three times, raising global concerns about Sailing.
We can imagine what if the Houthi militias or the Brotherhood organization were the ones controlling the southern and western coastal areas of Yemen and the Horn of Africa countries today? What would happen to national and regional security?
