The General Command of the UAE Armed Forces has announced the return of its troops from Yemen’s Aden Governorate after successfully accomplishing their mission and transferring responsibilities to Saudi and Yemeni forces.
UAE forces were instrumental in liberating Aden from the Houthis in July 2015.
“Thereafter, the Saudi-led Arab coalition forces spread out from Aden and liberated many other areas of Yemen from the Houthi rebels, foiling Iranian attempts to infiltrate Yemen and dominate its affairs,” the statement added.
“As a result, security and stability were restored across the Governorate. The forces also armed and trained the Yemeni forces in a way that would enable them to discharge their military responsibilities independently,” the statement said. “The Yemeni forces thus trained are highly competent, professional and capable of maintaining security and stability.”
The statement added that the UAE and its allies will resume the fight against terrorist forces in South Yemen and elsewhere.
“The Command also recalled the sacrifices made by the martyrs who laid down their lives fighting for their country, defending the truth and their brothers,” noted a statement on the UAE’s state-run WAM News Agency.
