An Egyptian security source has claimed to Reuters that as many as 800 Egyptian soldiers arrived in Yemen.

“We have sent these forces as part of Egypt’s prominent role in this alliance … the alliance fights for the sake of our brotherly Arab states, and the death of any Egyptian soldier would be an honour and considered martyrdom for the sake of innocent people,” a senior Egyptian military source said.

Four Egyptian units of between 150 to 200 troops along with tanks and transport vehicles arrived in Yemen late on Tuesday, two Egyptian security sources said.

“Before you start the ground operation, you have to have the prerequisite of the air campaign,” said Brigadier General Ahmed al-Asseri, a spokesman for the coalition.

“I don’t want to talk about Sanaa because the military issue is in phases … Now we are talking of Marib and Taiz.”

The Saudi aggression in Yemen has killed over 6000 people since last March.

I don’t agree with the Houthis Islamic views but I do support their struggle against the fascist Saudi led Coalition. The Zaydis did fight off the Egyptians and the Ottoman Empire who wanted to conquer Yemen throughout history, so defending their country against invaders is nothing new to them.

This article is confusing are the Egyptian there to help innocent people or supporting Al Saud Dynasty in mass killing of innocent Yemenis. Or are they referring to Al Saud monarchs as innocent! Aren’t poor and needy Yemenis their Arab brothers! Or do they only consider Rich Oil and dollar backed Arabs as their brothers! Can someone kindly enlighten me!
