US Military Forces in Yemen

US Redeploys Military Forces in Yemen

(FNA) ~ US has redeployed its special forces in Yemen to fight alongside the Saudi-backed troops in alleged campaign against al-Qaeda terrorists in the Southern parts of the war-torn country, Yemeni officials said.

An informed Yemeni official said that the troops had arrived in Yemen on April 25.

After one year of Saudi Arabia and the UAE’s financial and arms aid to the al-Qaeda and the ISIL terrorists, Abu Dhabi has called on the US to cooperate in the alleged fight against the terrorist groups, the official added.

The UAE itself has retreated troops and equipment from the war on the popular forces in Yemen, although it has kept a small part of its mercenary army to allegedly fight against the ISIL and Al-Qaeda.

The UAE had originally sent troops to Yemen to fight the Ansarullah popular shiite movement under the umbrella of the Saudi-led coalition.

US redeployment of troops comes a year after the withdrawal of its forces from Yemen.

On March 21, 2015, the US evacuated its remaining forces out of al-Anad airbase in Southern Yemen “due to the deteriorating security situation” a day after al-Qaeda captured the nearby city of al-Houta.

Al-Qaeda has become stronger in Yemen taking advantage of the chaos created by the Saudi military attacks against the Yemeni people over a year ago.

Saudi Arabia has been waging a war on Yemen since late March 2015 in a bid to reinstate fugitive president Mansour Hadi and undermine the Ansarullah movement, which took over state matters after Hadi resigned.

Over 9,600 Yemenis, including 4,000 women and children, have lost their lives in the deadly military campaign.

Yemenis, in return, have been carrying out retaliatory attacks on the pro-Saudi forces deployed in the country as well as targets inside Saudi Arabia.


Israeli Regime Assists Saudis in War on Yemen

(FNA)- Leader of Yemen’s Ansarullah Movement, Sayyed Abdul-Malik al-Houthi said the Israeli regime is assisting the Saudi-led coalition in its war on Yemen.

He said in remarks broadcasted by Lebanese TV network Al-Manar that the Israeli regime launched its attacks against Yemen from Asab military camp in the neighboring African state of Eritrea.

In his speech to commemorate Martyr Sayyed Hussein Houthi, Ansarullah leader stressed that the movement remains focused on the political process being held in Kuwait, but at the same time remains vigilant in the battlefield.

Sayyed Houthi added that the Saudi regime will meet the same fate of anarchy and destruction which has afflicted the regional countries.

Yemen has been since March 26, 2015 under brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition.

At least 9,600 people, including more than 4,000 women and children, have been killed, and over 16,000 others injured since the onset of the aggression on Yemen.

Riyadh launched the attack on Yemen in a bid to restore power to fugitive president Abed Rabbuh Mansur Hadi who is a close ally to Saudi Arabia, and undermine Ansarullah Movement.
