On September 27, Sundanese Army Rapid Support Forces commander, General Mohamad Hamdan Dalqu, revealed in an interview with the Sudanese newspaper al-Jareeda that 412 service members of the Sundanese Army including 14 officers have been killed in Yemen by the Houthis since March 26, 2015.
Gen. Dalqu also announced that the Sundanese Army Rapid Support Forces participated in battles against the Houthis on 40 different fronts in Yemen. Moreover, Gen. Dalqu claimed that the Sudanese forces helped the Saudi-led collation to capture many areas in Yemen.
The Sudanese Army is the third largest force in the Saudi-led collation in Yemen after the Saudi Army and the UAE Army. However, unlike what Gen. Dalqu claimed the achievement of the Sudanese Army in Yemen is very limited.
The Sudanese Army Rapid Support Forces are mainly deployed around the Houthis-held Yemeni capital Sana’a. So far, the Houthis have repelled dozens of attacks of the Sudanese Army and pro-Hadi forces around Sana’a, and it’s believed that most Sudanese casualties were around Sana’a.
On September 26, Houthi snipers killed 3 fighters of the Saudi-led collation in Nihm district of Sana’a governorate. An example of the effective Houthi presence around Sana’a.
