Four UAE Soldiers Killed in Yemen Copter Crash
Local Editor

Four soldiers from the United Arab Emirates were killed when their helicopter crashed during a mission in Yemen, the UAE military confirmed on Saturday.

Crash

The Saudi-led coalition supporting the Yemeni government against Ansarullah revolutionaries initially played down Friday evening's incident, saying that the pilot had been forced to make an emergency landing "resulting in minor injuries to the crew".

The four soldiers died when the helicopter crashed in the southern province of Shabwa following a technical problem, a statement by the UAE military carried by the country's official WAM news agency said.

More than 12,000 people have lost their lives since March 2015, when the Saudi kingdom began its offensive against the Arab world's poorest nation.

Riyadh seeks to restore Yemen's former government, its close ally, and crush the country's Ansarullah revolutionary movement.

The Saudi regime has also been enforcing an all-out blockade against Yemen, claiming it works to halt arms transfers to the Ansarullah movement.

The popular fighters have been defending the nation against the assaults, launching retaliatory attacks targeting the kingdom's extreme southwestern regions.
