Supreme Commander of the UAE Supreme Armed Forces announced the withdrawal of the country's main military contingent from Yemen

48
The Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, announced that the UAE forces are no longer involved in the conduct of hostilities in Yemen. It should be recalled that the contingent of the UAE armed forces was part of the so-called Saudi coalition that acted against the Houthis (one of the groups loyal to the overthrown President Saleh for some time).

In the English version of Twitter, the supreme commander-in-chief of the UAE Armed Forces wrote that “the war for the soldiers of the UAE army in Yemen is over,” but in Arabic version his note looks a little different. It says that the war is "almost over."

Supreme Commander of the UAE Supreme Armed Forces announced the withdrawal of the country's main military contingent from Yemen


Later Qatari TV channel Al Jazeera spread the information that the main forces of the army of the United Arab Emirates are being withdrawn from Yemen, and in this country there remains a relatively small contingent of "numbers necessary for participation in counterterrorism operations". The report said that the remaining in Yemen, the UAE Armed Forces will concentrate in the province of Hadramaut - near the southern coast of Yemen and will control part of the largest port - Aden.

In Abu Dhabi, it is said that keeping a large number of the UAE military in Yemen is impractical. Some Arab political analysts say that there is a certain confrontation between the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia on the question of Yemen against the background of Iran’s accusations of support for the Houthis. Political analysts say that the contingents of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia are trying to shift the burden of warfare in Yemen to each other, because of which the operation has clearly reduced speed.

In the UAE, it is noted that since the beginning of the operation in Yemen, about 80 soldiers of the armed forces of the country died.

          They are growing barmalei for these purposes. Barmalei will be cut out by uncontrolled governments, then the Saudis, at the head of the Arab coalition, will cut out the Barmalei and master the newly acquired nishtyaks and territories.

          Already asked a question on another thread, but again I’ll ask.
          How does the "Saudi coalition" differ from the "so-called Saudi coalition"? Is this the same coalition or are they two different? Maybe the second understudy of the first, like a mirror on torrents?

          Who can explain to me?

        And when was the last time the Emirates fought on their own (before Yemen)? Providing airbases for allies is not a war! So the comparison is fundamentally incorrect !!! The population of the Emirates is 9 million 346 thousand. And what are the "comparable losses", despite the fact that the DB were conducted on foreign territory and the civilian population was absent in the losses. And in general, where are the numbers?

          The population of the United Arab Emirates is approximately 4,1 million people, of which ethnic Arabs make up only a third, and the indigenous people - 11%. The rest are from Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal and other countries of South Asia and the Philippines, who immigrated to the UAE as temporary workers. 85% of residents in the country are not UAE citizens.

          Missile attack in Marib - September 4, 2015 by the military of the army of Yemen, subordinate to ex-president Saleh, and the Hussites, with the help of the Tochka missile system, the advanced military camp of the anti-Husite coalition, located in the province of Marib (central Yemen, about 130 km to east of the capital - Sana'a), where coalition forces gathered troops and equipment in recent days.

          A missile entering an ammunition depot led to a powerful explosion and subsequent self-detonation of ammunition [1]. As a result, 52 soldiers of the United Arab Emirates [2], 33 supporters of ex-President Khati and 5 citizens of Bahrain, members of the auxiliary contingent, died in a military camp [3]. Saudi Arabia also acknowledged the death of ten of its military during this attack.

        in all, during the conflict, more than 70 killed UAE servicemen, for less than a million UAE citizens, this is an unrealistic figure. Even if we assume that the population of the Russian Federation is 150 times larger: 70 * 150 = 10500 in the ratio of population to losses. This is even an unrealistic figure for the Russian Federation.

          Ethnic or non-indigenous, this is a matter of interpretation. The UN has a clear number on 2015. - 9 349 129.
          If 80 dead, then in terms of OUR population this is slightly less than 1250 dead
          Quote: dmitriyruss
          comparable to the losses of the Russian Federation in the first and second Chechen companies combined

          Either I do not know how to count, or our state only admitted military losses almost 10 times more, probably with a "fool"?

      The meaning is not to introduce-withdraw beautifully, but to achieve the goal.

      The Saudis were bombarded by the fact that their puppet was shoved off the throne, but they still controlled themselves while Hadi was south. But when the Hussites went on a liberation campaign, occupied Aden, patience was over and the Arab coalition tried to restore constitutional order, return the throne in Sana'a to Hadi, to drive the Husites back to the mountains in the north. However, it did not work out. The company failed completely. The Hussites retained most of the territories, population, and industry, from the largest, only Aden and Taiz were lost (even now fighting is ongoing).

      If they hadn’t entered Syria, Assad was already gone, or he was in Latakia, controlling the shrinking Alavite enclave. However, the company is still not nearly completed. Assad’s position is very precarious, and the withdrawal of the main part of the contingent allows us to seize the initiative of the broads, in Aleppo, while Assad’s main forces are fighting the Caliphate.

    The high-tech army of the UAE will not admit its defeat, but it is starting to get out of the "swamp". The Houthis are superior in morale to the Arab "peacekeepers." And not everything is calm in the emirates themselves. The army becomes demoralized without successful actions, and the UAE Armed Forces command is well aware of this The losses grow, the morale falls and there are no results.

    I think that the Saudis simply torn their pants on two fronts. Assad went on the offensive in Syria, urgent resources are needed to contain him. And the Saudi economy is feeling shitty. In my opinion, the Saudis chose Syria from two evils. But if it doesn’t burn out there, it will be even worse with Yemen.
    The gold reserves of the Saudis are still alive, and even, judging by the 9/11 theme, Obama promised them something. The Saudis themselves, judging by the large-scale purchase of weapons over the past month (it would be better if they bought some brains), decided to go for broke. Militants poured across the border with Turkey, the Germans and French began to fight on the side of the so-called. democratic forces represented by the Kurds. Obviously, both the Saud and NATO have agreed on the territorial division and control of Syria, but at the same time, each is fighting for "his" territory.
    Now the time factor is important. Who is enough for how much. Russia has the resources to continue the banquet - our costs are not so great. The Saudis will be enough for a gamble of the year by 3. The Americans have elections next year and the situation depends on who becomes president. But how much Europe needs to spend money there and what they ultimately want to get there is a big question.

      No, it’s just that the Coalition led by Saudi Arabia from the very beginning of the war and throughout - did a great job, more than a dozen soldiers die every day there, and according to the destroyed and destroyed equipment, the figure has already exceeded 1000.

      And no one so nightmare Christians, as other Christians, because of such "principled" reasons as two fingers should be baptized, or three, from right to left, or vice versa, interpret the text in the Bible this way or that .. St. Bartholomew's night is a typical example and examples of such you can cite a lot, both from history and in the modern world. The Christian faith, unfortunately, is used more often for destruction than for creation, an example of which is the calls of the Ukrainian church hierarchs to continue and intensify hostilities in the Donbass. It is often easier for Russia to find a common language with countries far from Christianity - China, India, than with typically Christian ones, like most of the NATO countries.
