On December 8, Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok that his country had reduced the number of troops it has in Yemen from a peak of 15,000 to 5,000. These troops were deployed in Yemen as a part of the Saudi-led coalition and were involved in the fight against the Houthis (Ansar Allah).
“Regarding Yemen we said that there is no military solution and there must be a political solution,” Hamdok told media.
Sudan is an important part of the Saudi-led invading force and its troops have been deployed in Yemen since 2015. The public shift of Sudan’s stance towards the conflict indicates the ongoing collapse of the Saudi influence in the region.
