Yemen attack on Saudi Aramco Oil Facilities may affect 5% world oil supply


The Yemenese strike back hard: This time their target being the world's largest oil facilities in Saudi Arabia - the Aramco, a joint Saudi-USA establishment.

Yemen claims that 10 drones had been used in the attack, hitting the oil fields in Abqaiq and Khurais. The attack is likely to affect almost 5% drop in Saudi oil exports. And may cause crude prices to jump between $5 and $10 a barrel.





Watch a video by Al Jazeera network:
Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdul Aziz bin Salman said that 5.7 million barrels a day of crude oil and gas production have been affected. The latest OPEC figures put total Saudi production at 9.8 million barrels per day.

Serena Williams Loses US Open 2019 Final to Canadian Bianca Andreescu


US Open 2019 has been a great upset for top ranking players. While in men's singles race, both Federer and Djokovic lost their race to finals, Serena Williams did manage to reach finals but could not come out with a winning note.


Yes, Williams lost to Canadian Bianca Andreescu in straight sets. Bianca Andreescu won the final 6-3, 7-5 at the Arthur Ashe court.

Serena Williams thus failed for a second year in a row to claim a history-matching 24th Grand Slam title in New York to equal Margaret Court’s career tally. Last year, Williams lost a controversial match to Japanese star Naomi Osaka 6-3, 6-4.





In fact the 19 years old Canadian was too swift for aging and rather bulky American. Andreescu by wining the US Open title becomes the first Canadian, man or woman, to win a major in a singles event and has done so in the fewest number of Grand Slam appearances since Maria Sharapova won Wimbledon in 2004, according to ESPN.

Kashmir Protests as India Revokes its Special Status


In complete defiance of the UN Resolution that declares the Jammu and Kashmir as a disputed territory, India in complete defiance of the UN resolutions has revoked the clause 370 of its constitution on 4th august 2019 and made the disputed territory as an integral part of India. 

Pakistan reacted sharply to this unilateral decision:
"The Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir is an internationally recognized disputed territory. No unilateral step by the Government of India can change this disputed status, as enshrined in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions. Nor will this ever be acceptable to the people of Jammu & Kashmir and Pakistan." 
This was done after India just a couple of days ago deployed over 30,000 additional troops and imposed curfew to brutally slap any reaction from the Kashmiris.



All major Kashmiris leaders have already been placed under house arrest before tabling this notorious and sinister move. This motion comes when US President Trump had reassured Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan that he was ready to mediate the Kashmir dispute.

The Indian move has been strongly condemned by Pakistan and even OIC has reacted sharply to it. "Pakistan strongly condemns and rejects the announcements made today by the Indian Government regarding the Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir," said a Pakistan foreign office statement on Monday.

Pakistan Prime Minister meets Donald Trump: US Ready to Mediate on Kashmir


Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan met US President Donald Trump on Monday during his 3-days official visit to USA. Welcoming the Pakistan's Prime Minister, the US President remarked: “It’s my great honour to have the very popular (and by the way great athlete, one of the greatest) Prime Minister of Pakistan.”

Trump touted Pakistan's role in fomenting progress in the US-Taliban talks in recent weeks and said he believes Pakistan "is going to help us out to extricate ourselves" from the war in Afghanistan.

At the White House meeting on Monday, Mr Trump also offered to mediate the Indian-Pakistani conflict in Kashmir. He said that he was making the offer after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi requested that he "mediate or arbitrate" the 70-year old territory dispute between the two nations.





It may be added that since Donald Trump took office in 2017, his administration has adopted a hard line against Pakistan, accusing it of supporting Islamist militants and misleading the US over the issue - charges Islamabad denies.

However, this meeting seems to have softened US stance about Pakistan.

Pakistan shows interest in Russian Weapons

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has hinted at looking for Russian arsenal for its defence needs. The recent meeting of Pakistan's prime minister and the Russian President Putin during the recently concluded Shanghai Cooperation Organization Summit in Kyrgyzstan.

For long Pakistan has been dependent on Western, specially the American weapons but the latest shift in interests by US compels Pakistan to start exploring other arms markets.Specially so for the reason that USA is notorious to blocks spares or even ordered bookings that have negative effects on maintainer of armies. Pakistan is in dire need of attack helicopters as its aging fleet of American Cobra helicopters is almost sighing its last.

Russia has much to offer to Pakistan. Almost all weapons systems – land or sea-based – could be used by Pakistani armed forces, but the likeliest candidates are tanks, helicopters, specially Mi-35 gunship helicopters, and air defense systems, explains military expert and retired colonel Mikhail Khodarenok..





There’s plenty of reasons why Russia may want to offer its state-of-the-art armaments to Pakistan, he stated. Pakistan is an emerging arms trade market, and its demand for Russian weapons may amount to a whopping $8-9 billion in coming years.

French Open 2019: Frederer and Nadal to date in Semis on Friday


The heartbeats in Paris are getting stronger and faster as the ongoing French Open 2019 or the Roland Garros is reaching its crucial stage of semis. While Serena crashed out in the third round to make a history, men are doing pretty well without any major set back so far.

And in the first decided semi final Roger Federer and Nadal have a date to decide who moves into the final. The Federer-Nadal semi is being played on Friday. So who is going to march into finals is hard to tell for now, but most pin hopes on Nadal who feels more at home on the clay than Federer who is king of grass.





Rafael Nadal, the defending champion,  had an easy 6-1 6-1 6-3 win over Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals, while Federer had a rather tough time of playing down fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka in four sets.

20-times Grand Slam winner Federer is playing at Roland Garros for the first time in four years, having missed the 2016 event with a back injury and skipped the past two clay-court swings to preserve his body.

Nadal is playing his 12th semi-final at Roland Garros and has won the tournament on all of the 11 previous occasions he has reached this stage.
