The UAE completed the withdrawal of troops from Yemen after five years of participation in a military conflict


Abu Dhabi, February 9, 2020 (source: Emirates News Agency). After five years of military presence in Yemen, the troops of the United Arab Emirates returned home, where on Sunday a national holiday was held in their honor. The decision to withdraw troops was made by the UAE leadership after the liberation of the city of Al-Mukalla from the militants of al-Qaeda and ISIS.


UAE troops have been in Yemen since 2015 as part of the anti-Husite Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia. The purpose of the coalition was to support the legitimate authorities in Yemen and ensure stability in the country and region.

The UAE completed the withdrawal of troops from Yemen after five years of participation in a military conflict

The UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the decision on the final withdrawal of troops was made after the successful completion by the UAE soldiers of a number of liberation and humanitarian operations in Yemen. The latest of these operations was the liberation of the city of Mukalla in the south of the country, which is also an important international seaport. The city came back to life after protracted battles of the combined army of Yemen and the Emirates against terrorists. In addition to the liberation operation, the UAE forces in the region restored the infrastructure and provided medical assistance to the population.

The population of Yemen thanked the UAE leadership for their help in the struggle for the liberation of the Yemeni people. The official ceremony in honor of the withdrawal of troops, held on February 9 in Abu Dhabi, was attended by the Prime Minister and Vice President of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohammed Ibn Rashid Al Maktoum. Addressing the military, he thanked them for their successful participation in Operation Revival of Hope. “By participating in a military operation in Yemen, our valiant soldiers have proven to the world that the United Arab Emirates is capable of maintaining security and stability in the region,” he emphasized.


According to the Emirate Red Crescent, the amount of assistance provided by the UAE to Yemen from April 2015 to February 2020 amounted to more than 22 billion dirhams (6 billion US dollars). The assistance included the restoration of schools and hospitals, the provision of electricity to the affected regions, the restoration of airports and seaports, the expansion of roads and the construction of houses, as well as a number of humanitarian projects aimed at helping the local population. In particular, AED 2,37 billion ($ 650 million) was spent on the provision of medical care in the region: the purchase of medicines, equipment and ambulances, the construction of mobile clinics, the rehabilitation of hospitals and vaccination of the local population against infectious diseases in particular, to support the WHO program to combat the cholera epidemic, which spread in Yemen in 2016-2018. The total number of people receiving medical care from the UAE in Yemen for 5 years amounted to 11,4 million people.

        Khusitov could not overcome, despite the difference in "financial weight".
        They escaped under a "specious" pretext, in the American style calling it Victory.

      Victory has many fathers; defeat is always an orphan. Sudanese are also completing the withdrawal of their contingent. The remaining 5 thousand Sudanese are sitting in the rear on the suitcases. The Americans have long left Yemen. The Hussites attack and then they’ll take Marib. Many Husites collect trophies in the form of equipment. Congratulations to Saudi Arabia and its Afghanistan. The main thing is that the Husites on a visit to Riyadh do not come to collect trophies.
      The first photos of the next rout appeared https://colonelcassad.livejournal.com/5603813.html of the Saudis and Hadists in Yemen.
      The Hussites confidently began the year with a loud victory in Marib, where the interventionists and their accomplices suffered heavy losses in people and equipment, and the Hussites liberated 2500 kilometers of the country.
      According to the official statement of the Hussites, up to 400 pieces of equipment were captured - tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, armored infantry fighting vehicles, MLRS, and various guns. Losses of Hadists and Saudis killed, wounded and prisoners reach 2000 people. Several brigades actually lost their combat effectiveness due to the disorganization caused by flight and material losses.
      It would seem that the shameful defeat in Najran was difficult to beat, but the Saudis and Hadists managed. It is also worth noting that in an attempt to stop the disaster, the Saudi Air Force bombed the retreating Hadists during air strikes, which exacerbated the panic.

      Well, a small victorious war was planned. For the benefit of the winners. But Iran turned out to be more competent and with its help the Hussites resisted. request But by the way, the title is not entirely true. Emirates silently annexed the island of Socotra, a strategic point at the exit from the Gulf of Aden. And obviously they are not going to leave from there. What seems to be the UAE - the only ones who come out of the war with a valuable prize.

      Very possible. It depends on who wins, whom and how. Look at the Germans, English, French, Swedes and other Europeans. This is already a faint resemblance to the former great nations. "Ukroshumery", so they are always happy to be defeated themselves, under the loud statements about the "great changes."

          You live the stereotypes of the 90s. Moreover, the conversation was not about economics, but about peoples. Who European nations can give birth to today is Greta Tumberg.

    What does it mean to buy unfinished Patriots from mattresses for crazy money. With a flogging ass, they had to flee Yemen after they destroyed two brigades of the SAR, went to the border with them and burned them a factory wassat It’s time to run, while they themselves did not rake

    There are few nations capable of war.
    Until victory.
    Some of them are already gone ...
    I was born in Russia - Russians do not give up!
    If we were defeated in a battle, expect a global defeat!
    With the Arabs, unlike the British, Spanish, French, we fought a little ...
    Unlike the Turks, we always overturned those ...
    Yemen?
    The thing is that Aden will soon become our base ...
