Cairo extended for a year the participation of its armed forces in the Yemen operation

24
The Egyptian National Defense Council yesterday decided to extend the country's armed forces’s participation in the operation conducted by the Arab coalition in Yemen by a year, RIA News.




"The National Defense Council approved the extension of the participation of essential elements of the Egyptian armed forces in combat operations outside the borders in order to protect Egyptian and Arab national security in the Gulf, Red Sea and Bab el-Mandeb Strait region for a period of one year or until the end of the combat mission , whichever comes first and in accordance with Article 152 of the Constitution, " - said the office of the head of Egypt.

As the President of Al-Sisi previously stated, in the Yemeni operation Egypt uses only Aviation and the fleet, and if other troops are sent to the conflict zone, "this will be announced separately."

The agency recalls that in Yemen, the conflict continues between the Hussite rebels (the Ansar Allah Shiite movement), supported by army units loyal to former President Saleh, and troops of President Hadi expelled from the country, who in turn are supported by the Arab coalition forces. According to the UN, more than 6 thousand people have already died during the conflict.

    Egypt lives with Saudi loans. The dependence is clear. BUT!!! I would like to hope that this solution is purely formal. Money, money, but is it worth it to lose your head?

          It was like that, I also heard in the news. Almost threatened with a nuclear strike. And here, in a certain topic, it was casually discussed.

        Well, Egypt is trading to the maximum. Pakistan virtually threatened Iran with a fiery Hell for free if they trample the Saudis, and Egypt takes a neutral position, open to wink money offers.
        The Special Assistant to the Prime Minister of Pakistan for External Relations emphasized the importance of relations between this country and Iran.

        According to Sama TV channel, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister of Pakistan for External Relations Sayyid Tarik Fatimi on Monday at a meeting in Islamabad with the new Iranian ambassador to this country, Mehdi Honardust, expressed hope that both countries will find a new solution to common cooperation.

        The Pakistani official assured that Islamabad would fully support the efforts of the Iranian embassy in fulfilling its obligations.

        The new Iranian ambassador to Pakistan, in turn, emphasizing the importance of his role, which is to expand and deepen relations between Iran and Pakistan, said that Iran will continue its cooperation with Pakistan in the field of energy and tourism.
        By the way, Pakistan refused to enter the Saudi coalition. It was interesting when the Pakistanis scared Iran ...

    And what kind of operation, who will tell you. For what purposes it is carried out, really because of the fin. help from the Saudis. Why did our citizens patch up holidays to Egypt did not know anything about her?

    From this "participation" it’s not cold for anyone, it’s not hot ... Although they are probably pretending to have a gesheft from the Saudis ...

    Oh, and the Egyptians will play out that they themselves have such an “anti-terrorist” civil war that they’ve started in vain with the Saudis. By the way, the word of the Saudi consonant with the word of Judah !.

    Sisi plays his politics. Perhaps he has certain plans.
    for the future reconstruction of the Middle East world order.
    East is a delicate matter.

    The Egyptian army did not fight for a long time, most likely they want to train on a weak enemy.

      The weak are not weak, but the Saudis on vaunted Abrams and the superfood American planes cannot control them. So I had to assemble a coalition.

        Well, the coalition didn’t achieve much success either, but it’s already lost many millions of iron --- mom don’t worry.

    It was correctly said in the classic film - East is a delicate matter. Therefore, you look at the actions of Egypt and it becomes completely unclear how in that game "What, where, when?"

    Interestingly, but the Egyptians really fight? I have never met articles about their losses or any successes. Most likely I work off the grandmothers Saudi menacingly puffing out their cheeks.

    They would have to deal closely with the tourism industry, and not roam about Yemen.
