Yemeni Army Takes 11 Vehicles from UAE Troops in Lahij

Tue Aug 11, 2015 12:51:28

The popular forces captured nearly a dozen fully-equipped military vehicles of the UAE units of the Saudi-led troops in Yemen's Lahij province on Monday, Al-Alam News Network reports.

The Yemeni forces confiscated 11 Hummer vehicles from the Emirati troops in Lahij province, reports said, adding that the Saudi-led troops were due to transfer the vehicles to the militant forces loyal to the fugitive president, Mansour Hadi.

The media sources announced recently that the UAE has dispatched over 1,500 troops to Aden to fight alongside the Saudis against the Yemeni army and Ansarullah fighters.

The clashes between the Ansarullah fighters and the Saudi-backed al-Qaeda terrorists as well as the pro-Hadi militias continue in the Southern parts of the country as Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 138 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression has so far killed at least 5,379 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children.

Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.

Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
