Four UAE Troops Killed after Black Hawk Helicopter Crash in Yemen

Saturday 12 August 2017
Four UAE Troops Killed after Black Hawk Helicopter Crash in Yemen

Alwaght- Four United Arab Emirate (UAE) troops have been killed after their US-made Black Hawk helicopter has crashed in southern Yemen.

According to Yemen's official Saba news agency, the chopper crashed in the Amqeel area of Ar Rawdah district in the south-central Yemeni province of Shabwah on Friday afternoon.

The general command of the UAE’s armed forces confirmed that four of its soldiers were killed after their helicopter was hit by a technical fault.

However, AFP quoted Colonel Turki al-Maliki, a spokesman for the Saudi-led military coalition engaged in a war in Yemen, as saying the pilot made an emergency landing in the area due to “a technical defect while returning from an operation in Yemen.”

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia has been heavily bombarding Yemen as part of a brutal aggression against its impoverished southern neighbor in an attempt to reinstall Yemen’s former President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh, and oust the popular Ansarullah movement, which is in control of large parts of Yemen, including the capital Sana'a.

The UAE is one of the main allies of Riyadh in its deadly war against the Yemeni nation. The United States has also been providing arms and military training as well as bombing coordinates to the Saudi-led coalition since the beginning of the protracted war. The Saudi-led coalition has failed to achieve its stated objectives and is now stuck in the Yemen quagmire.

Latest figures show that the military campaign, which lacks any international mandate, has so far killed nearly 14,000 Yemenis and wounded thousands more. The Saudi aggression has also taken a heavy toll on Yemen's facilities and infrastructure, destroying many hospitals, schools, factories and Mosques. Cholera has also ravaged the war-torn country with over 2,000 dying of the disease over the last three months.
