UAE forces bomb Yemen rebels after coalition troop deaths

Saudi-led alliance launches airstrikes against Houthi rebel postions after deadliest day yet in conflict

The United Arab Emirates has bombarded Yemeni rebels with airstrikes after 50 people, including 45 soldiers, were killed in the deadliest day yet for a Saudi-led coalition fighting the insurgents.

Emirati officials vowed that the deaths in a missile attack in the eastern province of Marib would not weaken their commitment to the coalition’s mission to restore exiled president Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to power.

The missile hit an arms depot, triggering huge explosions that the exiled government said also killed five Bahraini coalition troops.

The UAE denounced the attack as cowardly, but the Shia Houthi rebels hailed it as revenge for six months of deadly coalition airstrikes.

The coalition launched its air war when Hadi fled to Saudi Arabia in March after the rebels entered his last refuge, Yemen’s second city of Aden.

Bodies of 103 foreign troops recovered from Yemen’s Safer airport

A top Yemeni tribal source says the bodies of 103 foreign troopers have been recovered from a military airport in the central Yemeni province of Ma’rib, where they came under a rocket attack by Yemeni army forces and allied Popular Committees.

The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said authorities have identified 45 Emirati nationals as well as five Bahraini citizens among the soldiers slain in al-Safer airport, adding that the remaining corpses belong to individuals

that hailed from other Arab nations, Arabic-language al-Masirah satellite television network reported.

He further noted that at least 70 people, mostly Emirati soldiers, also sustained injures in the Friday afternoon’s incident, and some of them are in critical condition.

The source said more than 40 armored vehicles and military trucks were destroyed in the attack. Three Apache combat helicopters also went up in flames.
