Two British SAS Soldiers Injured During “Humanitarian Mission” In Yemen – Report

Illustrative image

Two service members of the British Special Air Service (SAS) were injured in a roadside bomb blast while they were conducting a top-secret humanitarian mission in Yemen, the Express reported on February 17.

According to the British newspaper, the service members were a part of a 12-man strong unit, which flew into the southern Yemeni city of Aden from Djibouti aboard a UAE Chinook helicopter three weeks ago. The unit is working under U.S. command alongside members of Operational Detachment Alpha, the primary fighting force for the American Green Berets.

“The issue is that this country is on the edge of famine. This unit’s task was to identify areas for a drop, and secure people on the ground we can deal with should the green light be given for food and medical aid drops,” the Express quoted a military source saying.

The SAS unit was operating near the town of Marib, 500 miles north of Aden, when one of its pickups was hit with a landmine. Two soldiers sustained leg injuries and were evacuated by a UAE helicopter to the U.S. military base in Djibouti.

“This is a region filled with land mines and improvised explosive devices, and the intelligence we are gathering is vital not only for any future air drops but also to transport aid should Hudaydah reopen,” the military source said.

British sources believe that the landmine was planted by the Houthis, who control large areas west and south of Marib. However, the Yemeni group didn’t claim responsibility for the unusual attack.

The nature of the SAS mission in Yemen is highly questionable. It remains unclear why such an elite military unit would be engaged in a humanitarian mission and why would such mission be classified as “top-secret.”

    yeah those dunces just can’t leave things well alone – they just have to meddle so lets hope the next train home for those fuckers don’t turn up and that they’ll have to rely on the locals that they are in the process of killing – won’t be so much fun then, will it. wait for corbyn to become pm and you will see the end of these shenanigans uk is up to – killing on the sly hoping no-one notices.

      That’s why Israel is doing its best to defame Corbyn with tired Anti Semitism bullshit.

        Of note is JC’s admission, to The Church Times, is that his maternal ancestors wereJewish and fled Germany!!!

        The anti semitic stuff is about deligitimising the boycott and deinvestment movement. In a brilliant piece of undercover journalism, Aljazera uncovered the Israeli government plans at Lab conference in 2015.

          Yes, I remember that recording at the time. Amazingly a segment in a bar with the Israeli intelligence agent stationed at the Israeli Embassy in London and one if the labour MP’s who has just left the labour party is still on YouTube.
          She was given 1 million pounds to foster support for Israel.
          The conversation about the 1 million pounds starts at 3:05

    British military force has been murderously active in different segments of Yemen for many decades. Neither mainstream media nor British government have informed the public of generational atrocities committed in Yemen by British forces on land, by sea and from the air.

    • FlorianGeyer

      I cannot recall Parliamentary approval for British troops in Yemen either.

      • AM Hants

        Or Syria.
        Or Ukraine.

    The nature of the SAS mission in Yemen is highly questionable. It remains unclear why such an elite military unit would be engaged in a humanitarian mission and why would such mission be classified as “top-secret.” why, because they are asSASsins, that is what they do

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    If people looked back over my comments. I openly published three years ago that SAS were operating inside of Yemen. In fact before this latest war even started I had been informed that SAS are often operating inside of the country. I have no idea many of the things they are doing. But I do know they have operated inside of Houthis territory. I do know for a fact they have marked targets for air strikes. And I do know for a fact on at least three occasions they have directly engaged Houthis and have killed.
    My guess is I only know the 1% tip of the iceberg. I am sure that the SAS since the 1960’s have been heavily engaged in always working against the indigenous tribes that God placed their.
    What do you expect from a bunch of anti-theist? Other then doing everything possible to kill and destroy Monotheist home lands.

      Not all of us are but I agree that those in power are.

    If an extra-terrestrial anthropology student arrived in Britain on a field trip, he would probably deduce that the British military was a kind of armed social services going all over the world ‘helping’ people.

    • FlorianGeyer

      That really is rather funny :)
      And sadly , many in the UK will believe that.

      The SpecialAidService has long been involved in giving children sweets , building schools and creating a community spirit within tribal areas. SAS training involves carrying large loads over rugged terrain. I never realised that this was practice to rescue Widows and Orphans in far off lands.

      • AM Hants

        Why does an image of the SAS being sent, to make sure Shamima Begum and her baby, have a safe journey home, so come to mind? No doubt, having to pop into Yemen, to pick up some nappies and baby milk, for the journey?

          If Prince Harry and his wife were bought in to promote the humanitarian aspect of the SAS, it would be a great advert for all the snow flakes in the caring British Special Forces :)

  • skinner15

    The SAS do not do humanitarian operations, they are used for commando style raids, recon and assassination.

    They go where the politicians send them, not Army command.

      Rothschild Forces.

    Didn’t realise the SAS were used for ‘humanitarian’ projects???? (sarc).
