UAE Confirms More Soldiers Death Toll in Yemen

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) acknowledged on Friday that its army has sustained more casualties in Yemen.

An Emirati soldier named Hamoud Saleh al-Ameri succumbed to the injuries he received last September in Yemen's Ma'rib province, the UAE army announced on Friday.

Al-Ameri was undergoing treatment in Germany.

Earlier this month, an official Emirati report said that the fatalities of the UAE military men killed in clashes with the Yemeni forces had risen to 70.

"Most of the fatalities are related to the Yemeni missile strikes on an arms depot in the Central parts of Ma'rib province on September 4 that left 54 Emirati soldiers killed," the UAE Center for Studies and Information Dissemination said.

The UAE government, however, declined to announce the exact number of the Emirati soldiers injured in Yemen.

On September 4, the security sources revealed that the Yemeni forces killed a sum of 300 foreign troops, including 54 UAE soldiers, in their attack on al-Safer military base in Eastern Yemen.

The death toll of the UAE, Saudi and Bahraini officers and soldiers killed in September 4's arms depot blast at a military base in al-Safer in Ma'rib province stood at 300, Yemeni security sources said.

The revolutionary forces in Yemen said they fired a rocket at a weapons cache in a camp used by "the Saudi-led aggressors" in Ma'rib area.

The Yemeni sources noted that high death toll of the foreign troops was the result of the ballistic missiles blast caused by Yemeni missile attack.

On Oct 6, some 18 UAE guards of Yemen's former Prime Minister Khaled Bahah were killed in rocket-propelled grenade attacks on Bahah's hotel in the port city of Aden.

Yemen's former Prime Minister Khaled Bahah escaped to Saudi Arabia once again after 18 of his UAE guards were killed in the rocket-propelled grenade attacks on his hotel in Aden; FNA reported.
