US Green Berets Deployed to Assist Saudi War on Yemen
Local Editor

A team of elite US soldiers called the Green Berets were deployed in secret last year to the Saudi-Yemen border to participate in the war against the impoverished country.

Green Berets

Twelve Green Berets were deployed to the border area in December 2017 just weeks after Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman renewed his call for American support.

In this respect, officials from US President Donald Trump's administration as well as European and Arab diplomats, told the New York Times the troops are "helping locate and destroy" training sites and missiles of the Ansarullah revolutionaries.

Part of their mission is to also train Saudi troops on how best to operate on the Yemen border area.

However, the Pentagon previously claimed its role in the conflict was limited to "refueling, logistics, and general intelligence sharing".

Relatively, Democratic Senator Tim Kaine, a member of the Armed Services Committee, called the Green Berets mission a "purposeful blurring of lines between train and equip missions and combat". He has renewed his call for Congress to pass a new "authorization of use of military force" [AUMF], since the US Congress is the only body that has the ability to declare war. 

There are also US intelligence experts in the southern Saudi city of Najran that have been operating with Saudi troops.
