No more war for Emirati troops in Yemen, but there is no victory either

The UAE has declared that the war in Yemen is over for Emirati troops, after restoring legitimacy, returning to the political path and responding to Iran’s interference.

His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, made the announcement on his official Twitter account (@MBZNews) late on Wednesday.

Shaikh Mohammad quoted the UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash, who had given a speech earlier saying the “war is over for our troops,” but that “we’re monitoring political arrangements.”

The UAE’s resolve in both political and military realms in Yemen surprised many observers as the country gave a major support to the Saudi-led coalition in what Gargash described as a “difficult test.”

UAE troops had been among the most active members of a Saudi-led “Operation Restoring Hope” in Yemen which began in 2015 in response to requests for assistance from internationally-recognised government of President Abd Rabbo Mansour Hadi.
