US troops arrive in Yemen’s south

US forces have secretly arrived in the port city of Aden, southern Yemen, during the past hours.

This was reported by Yemen Press Agency, based on well-informed sources.

Informed sources said that a large US military transport plane arrived at Aden Airport at dawn Saturday.

The sources pointed out that the American plane was carrying military units from the US army of up to 300 officers and soldiers, reinforced by 12 Black Hawk planes and 30 “Harvey” armored vehicles, in addition to four Patriot air defense systems and an integrated field operations room.

The American forces that arrived at Aden Airport from Afghanistan and spent about two months on the Yemeni island of Socotra are scheduled to settle at Al-Anad military base, the sources added.

These US moves come after the failure and defeats of Al-Qaeda and ISIS in the military confrontations with the Yemeni army and the popular committees in Bayda province, central Yemen
