Israel assisting UAE in aggression against Yemen

diyaradaha1Yemen(ANN)The Israeli regime is providing logistic and material assistance to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in its military offensive against Yemen, reports say.

An Israeli warplane recently provided large volumes of light and heavy military equipment and mobile spying devices to Emirati military forces in a regional base.

Israeli regime military officers are also training the UAE officers on urban and irregular warfare.

The UAE is participating in the deadly months-long Saudi aggression against Yemen.

‘Terrible for the Arab world

Political commentator Anna O’Leary told press TV that Israel and the UAE are “collaborating” with Saudi Arabia in the war against Yemen.

“The UAE is now openly showing its hand that it is collaborating with Saudi Arabia and using Israeli firepower in Yemen. This is a terrible situation in the Arab world,” the analyst said.

She noted that the Tel Aviv regime is “manipulating” the UAE and Saudi Arabia to achieve its expansionist goals in the Middle East region.

In April, Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the Saudi government unleashed deadly air raids against Yemen after it had received the green light from the United States and Israel, and was promised military cooperation by some regional states.

It is also believed that the Tel Aviv regime has been closely collaborating with Saudi Arabia in the aggression against Yemen.

“I see this war once again is a product of the unholy alliance between the Saudis and the Israelis,” Saeb Shaath, an author and Middle East expert in Belfast, told Press TV in June, adding, “this is a war executed by the Saudis and the Israelis and led I think by Israeli generals who are executing this for the Saudis.”

“The Israelis see Ansarullah as enemies and they see Saudis as friends,” Seif Da’na, professor at University of Wisconsin in Chicago, told Press TV in June.

The development comes as Saudi Arabia intensifies its deadly aggression against the Yemen people.

Saudi warplanes on Sunday pounded the Yemeni province of Ibb, killing at least 10 people and injuring 50 others.

The Saudi jets also targeted several districts in the Yemeni provinces of Ma’rib and Sa’ada.

Yemeni marksmen kill 3 Saudi troops

In retaliation for the deadly Saudi aggression, the Yemeni army forces backed by popular committees killed at least three Saudi soldiers with sniper fire, destroyed a Saudi tank and two military vehicles in an attack on the province of Jizan in southwestern Saudi Arabia.

Yemeni military sources also confirmed that army soldiers backed by popular committees had downed a Saudi Apache helicopter after firing a missile in the al-Safer area in Ma’rib.

According to a report published on September 19 by the Yemen’s Civil Coalition NGO, 6,091 Yemenis, including 3,006 women and children have been killed in six months of Saudi Arabian airstrikes. The report also said that 13,552 people –2,997 women and children– have also been injured during this time period.

Saudi Arabia launched its military aggression against Yemen on March 26 – without a United Nations mandate – in a bid to undermine the Houthi Ansarullah movement and restore power to the fugitive former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.
