Saudi-led Coalition in Yemen to Lose Even More Of Its Sudanese Backbone

Click to see full-size image

Sudan is reconsidering its involvement in the Saudi-led intervention in Yemen, and is drawing down its forces, Information Minister Faisal Mohamed Salih said.

“Currently, there is a revision of the whole war in Yemen, even among the coalition’s principal countries, and there is an opinion that military activities will not solve the problem, and will likely to compound it,” he claimed.

He said that it has participated in the conflict for a while, and the scope of its involvement is wide, as such it would be impossible to immediately withdraw, but rather troops would be reduced gradually.

“We think that the current efforts will soon lead to a decrease in combat activities, which will be replaced by negotiations,” Salih added.

Before December 2019, Sudan had approximately 15,000 troops fighting against the Houthis as part of the Saudi-led coalition.

Back then, Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok announced that his country had cut the number of troops participating in the conflict from 15,000 to 5,000. This will go even further down.

According to reports, up to 40,000 Sudanese troops were deployed in the country during the peak of the conflict in 2016-2017.

There were also reports of child soldiers from Sudan fighting in the Yemen intervention, and they’ve even been quoted that without them, the Houthis would have reached Riyadh in a counter-offensive.

A security company in the UAE, Black Shields, was accused of recruiting Sudanese nationals with a promise of high salaries for being security guards in the country, but instead was sending them to fight in Yemen.

Abdul Rahman Alzaki, who works as a teacher in Khartoum, said: “When we reached the Emirates, we realised that we had been cheated, as the company had taken our passports, mobile phones and everything and sent us to a military training camp called Zayed Military City.” The camp is located in Abu Dhabi.

Some of them were also sent to protect the Libyan oil fields, presumably on behalf of the Libyan National Army, since the UAE supports Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar.

This is not welcome news for the Saudi-led coalition, who even with Sudanese support have been on the backfoot of the intervention. Time and again it has been proven that neither the Saudi armed forces, nor the UAE armed forces wish to take part in the ground offensive in Yemen and sacrifice their lives. That is why the they primarily carry out airstrikes with varied success.

Simply carrying out airstrikes without any ground offensive, however, seldom, if ever, ends in capturing any key positions or cities.

    If houthis are backed by Iran, then these saudi dogs and their allies will have no stomach for a fight against a country that just whacked a USA military base with zero consequences apart from the cost of their missiles

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The fucking Jews operating from the UAE pimpdom recruited these poor Sudanese dumbasses to “work in Yemen as domestic servants” and sent them to the front to be slaughtered by some of the world’s toughest warriors. These sorry assed Sudanese lost 11,000 dead, wounded and captured and they have had enough. The Jew fucks are still trying for them to hang on with promises of Americunt aid for Sudan.

    Time for Turkey,Saudi Arabia and USANATO to pay back the souls which their cheated to die.

  • FlorianGeyer

    Irrespective of the poor ( in both senses of the word ) Sudanese soldiers, the Saudi and Qatari soldiers are typical of the cowardice displayed by the armies if the US Coalition of Terror.

  • Paulo Romero

    This is just exploitation of poor people by the UAE and Saudis . This is cowardice and malice from the Saudi and UAE military. The Sudanese fighters are taking heavy casualties , and in most instances their bodies are not recovered and returned to their families. The Sudanese politicians are heavily subsidized by the Gulf Sunni States,and often don’t really care what happens to their people. The hundreds of fighters that return to Sudan , will realize that everybody sold them out,as cheap cannon fodder. Most, are not regular army , and will have no work or income when they return. They will rebel and form another branch of Al Qaeda. The mix of poverty and disenchantment is, right for upheaval in Sudan.

  • Peter Jennings

    Sudan should withdraw all its forces forewith and save some lives. The Sudan admin now know they made a mistake in sending Sudanese people in place of suadis, who are so pampered and removed from the real world that the fighting spirit has left them.

    It’s a slap in the face for the suadi admin who had it coming.

  • Assad must stay

    There were also reports of child soldiers from Sudan fighting in the Yemen intervention, and they’ve even been quoted that without them, the Houthis would have reached Riyadh in a counter-offensive.

    inshallah they reach riyadh :))))

  • goingbrokes

    Correction: It is the Ansarallah that has reduced the number of Sudanese troops in West Yemen, not Sudanese government.
