The special forces unit and US intelligence officials arrived at the Al-Andean base in Lahj province (South Yemen) under the pretext of fighting terrorists from the Al Qaeda group, reports Free Press with reference to the agency Fars News.



According to the agency, “X-NUMX AH-15" Apache "attack helicopters and five UH-64A Black Hawk multipurpose UH-60 attack helicopters were also deployed to the Al-Andes military base.

The publication notes that “this is not the first American landing party in South Yemen lately - in May, around 200, the marines were stationed in the port of the city of Al-Mukalla on the coast of the Gulf of Aden, in addition, the USS Boxer amphibious assault ship is in the bay itself able to quickly land a battalion of marines. "

According to the agency, the arrival of the US military "is connected with the request of the United Arab Emirates to organize the protection of the strategic Bab el-Mandeb Strait, which accounts for almost 15% of the global transit of oil."

"The current deployment of the US Armed Forces in Yemen takes place a year after the US evacuated its special forces from the Al-Ande base against the background of the move of the Houthis to the port zone and the success of the militants of the al-Qaeda group in the Arabian Peninsula," the newspaper notes.

Hussites from the Shiite Ansar Allah movement have already protested, calling the actions of the Americans “colonial”, and adding that “the transfer of American troops is contrary to the negotiation process launched by 21 April 2016 in Kuwait and ceasefire regime in April 11”.

    US External Debt:
    Among others - Brazil ($ 255 billion), Taiwan ($ 201,6 billion), Switzerland ($ 194,4 billion), Russia ($ 194,4 billion), Luxembourg ($ 139,4 billion), Hong Kong ($ 137,2 billion), Belgium ($ 133,3 billion), Caribbean banking centers ($ 258,5 billion) and oil-exporting countries (Saudi Arabia, Libya, Iran, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain) - $ 266,2 billion.


    The grandmas are working out. However, the film "The Fall of the Black Hawk" tells what can come of it. From a non-particularly complex operation, a heroic epic was inflated)))

      Even in Kakland, the grandmothers did not work out when there the power transmission towers in Crimea fell on the Islyamov-Dzhamilevsky bandyuki. Or is it not so simple in this world.

      Again, the Hussites will put pressure and the Yankees will urgently begin the evacuation.

    Something in the press there was no information that the UN allows the United States to send special forces and military equipment to the UAE, and the UAE seems to be not a member of NATO.
    According to the agency, the arrival of the US military "is connected with the request of the United Arab Emirates to organize the protection of the strategic Bab el-Mandeb Strait, which accounts for almost 15% of the global transit of oil."

    Some kind of "private shop", everything happens at the level of thieves' concepts, and not at the diplomatic level, issues are resolved. Or, where there is a lot of oil, diplomacy ends there? It's just that these "exceptional world hegemons" have lost their shores altogether.

    I don’t quite understand why to transfer attack helicopters if the actual guerrilla war is under way by small sabotage groups.

    Another dubious step by the United States, showing its desire to "peacefully" settle this conflict

    Another dubious step by the United States, showing their desire to "peacefully" settle this conflict,
    It is evident that it burns out in the very territory of Arabia. Publications were that the Hussites were already joking in Arabia itself.

    In the 4th war, mattress mattresses got involved at the same time, and they did not have to tear for long, as if the navel did not burst from the strain.
