US, UAE Troops Invade Southern Yemen, Occupy Oil Fields

US, UAE Troops Invade Southern Yemen, Occupy Oil Fields

US troops

US and UAE troops have invaded and occupied large swaths of the Yemen’s Shabwa province seizing control of gas and oil fields.

Alwaght-United States and United Arab Emirates troops have invaded and occupied large swaths of the Yemeni southeastern province of Shabwa seizing control of gas and oil fields.

Shabwa deputy governor Mohammad Ahmed Abu Harbah told official Saba news agency that the foreign troops have invaded the province under the pretext of fighting terrorism and established the so-called "Shabwani elite forces."

 “American Emirati aggression” must be confronted by a united Yemen, Abu Harbah stated, adding that the intent behind the foreign invasion was to stir up a civil war.

A few days ago Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis confirmed that US troops are on the ground inside Yemen to reportedly help with "intelligence sharing" in an alleged operation to rout al-Qaeda militants.

UAE troops and Yemeni militias loyal to Abu Dhabi have established a foothold in the south and central regions of the country.

Abu Dhabi's presence has been described by Yemenis as an occupation and human rights groups have slammed torture of prisoners by Emirati troops.

The UAE said the recent operation was being "closely supported by a combined UAE and US enabling force".

According to a military source, US and UAE aggression forces on the oil and gas wells in Shabwa comes within the framework of the plans of the Saudi-led aggression and its latest escalation with the aim of controlling and plundering the wealth of Yemen.

The UAE has previously relied on Qatari gas, but the ongoing crisis with Qatar prompted it in cooperation with the United States to search for options, including the occupation of oil and gas wells in Balhaf and Shabwa.

A Saudi-led coalition started a bloody aggression on Yemen in March 2015 to oust the popular Ansarullah movement and restore to power fugitive Abdul Rabbuh Mansour Hadi who resigned as president and fled to Riyadh. The Saudis have failed to achieve their stated objective and are now stuck in the Yemen quagmire while indiscriminately bombarding the impoverished stated on an almost daily basis.

The Saudi war on Yemen, one of the world's most impoverished countries, has killed nearly 13,000 people and left tens of thousands wounded while displacing millions.
