Controversy sparked as Saudi Arabia allowed US and UK military forces to use its airspace for military operations in Yemen.

In turn of escalating tensions in the Middle East and the attacks on Yemen by the United States and United Kingdom military forces, the green light from Saudi Arabia to allow these countries to use their airspace for military operations in Yemen has posed an alarming situation 

Not only Saudi Arabia but all other Gulf countries except Oman have agreed to provide their airspace for military operations in Yemen. The decision came after the recent attacks on the Houthi rebels. As per the forces of the US and UK, the strikes were aimed at degrading the Houthis military capabilities and restoring stability in the region.

However, Oman, which is a prominent figure in this situation and shares a border with Yemen, has expressed its opposition to the airstrikes. Oman maintains diplomatic ties with Houthi rebels and has been playing a positive role in the conflict. The country has voiced its reservations about military intervention and has called for peaceful restoration in the area.

The Oman Foreign Ministry has condemned and criticized the use of military forces by friendly countries, especially considering the horrific attacks of Israel on Gaza which has claimed thousands of lives. Oman has consistently warned of a potential escalation of regional conflict due to Israeli actions against the Palestinian territories.

The surprise factor in Saudi Arabia and its role as an Islamic country adds controversy to the situation. As a Muslim-dominated kingdom in the Middle East with strong cultural and religious ties to Yemen, the move raises questions about the country’s motivations.

The connection to the conflict in Palestine adds another layer of tension. Oman’s concern about the risk of regional conflict escalation due to Israeli aggression contrasts with the decisions of other Gulf states.

This prompts observers to consider how Saudi Arabia, as a Muslim-majority country, manages the balance between diplomatic resolutions and military interventions, particularly when its airspace is used for operations impacting the broader Muslim-majority region.

While the motives behind Saudi Arabia’s decision remain unclear, the surprise and concern among observers underscore the conflict between the kingdom’s role as a Muslim-majority country and its involvement in regional military actions. 

As events continue to unfold, the consequences of this move will undoubtedly affect several countries along with influencing diplomatic relations.
