Qatari troops join Saudi forces in Yemen
Around 1,000 Qatari military forces have reportedly joined the Saudi troops in their ground invasion of impoverished Yemen.
Al-Jazeera news channel reported on Monday that the troops entered Yemen through Saudi Arabia’s al-Wadia border crossing.
The report said that Qatari forces were backed by more than 200 armored vehicles and 30 Apache combat helicopters.
According to the report, with the deployment of the Qatari troops in Yemen, the number of Persian Gulf Arab countries’ forces in the war-hit country will increase to 10,000.
Qatar is the third Persian Gulf Arab country after the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain to dispatch army forces in support of the Saudi aggression against Yemen.
