In Yemen, another state rocked by the 2011 Arab uprisings, the GCC brokered an agreement under which ali Abdullah Saleh, then president, resigned in January 2012. After the military advance of the Zaidiian Shiite „Houthi“ faction, as Yemen`s political order collapsed and Saleh`s successor, Abdu Rabbu Mansour Al Hadi, went into exile in January 2015, Saudi Arabia formed a coalition of Arab states, including all GCC countries except Oman, to confront the Houthis militarily. The coalition, which includes a 3,000-strong armored brigade from the United Arab Emirates, has carried out airstrikes and ground operations against Houthi positions to push them to find a political solution that could restore Hadi`s government. The Houthis receive weapons from Iran as part of what the GCC leaders claim is Iran`s attempts to expand its regional influence, and in October 2016, the Houthis used anti-ship missiles that may have been delivered by Iran to severely damage a UAE Navy logistics ship on Bab Al Mandeb Street. To date, more than 100 UAE military personnel have been killed in the intervention, the largest loss of UAE military personnel during a UAE military operation. In June 2017, UAE officials rejected allegations by human rights organisations that the UAE armed forces maintain a secret network of prisons in Yemen where prisoners have been severely ill-treated. Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the United States launched Operation Freedom to Deceive to combat al-Qaeda and prevent the Taliban regime in Afghanistan from providing them with a safe haven. Soon after, the Taliban regime was overthrown by the United States. and allied forces, and the United States then concluded a series of security agreements with the new Afghan government. In 2002, the United States and Afghanistan entered into an economic subsidy agreement under the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961,38 as amended, through an exchange of notes.37 In addition, the agreement provides defense items, defense services, and related training, in accordance with the U.S. International Military Training and Education Program (IMET),39 from the U.S.
government to the Afghan Interim Administration (AIA). In 1941, the United States entered into an agreement with the United Kingdom on the leasing of naval and air bases to Newfoundland, Bermuda, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Antigua, Trinidad and British Guiana.146 The agreement not only described the physical location that was leased, but also provided for the status of U.S. personnel on the leased site. Staff are immune to prosecution by Afghan authorities and are immune to civil and administrative prosecution, except for acts committed outside of their functions47 In the agreement, the Islamic Interim Government (ITGA) 48 expressly authorized the U.S. government to exercise criminal justice over U.S. personnel and the Afghan government is not authorized to take over U.S. personnel under the supervision of a other State.
That`s kind of the case. International tribunal or any other body without the consent of the U.S. government. Although the agreement was signed by the ITGA, the government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, then elected, assumed responsibility for the LEGAL OBLIGATIONS OF THE ITGA and the agreement remains in force. . . .
