British military forces increase presence near Yemeni coast

Great Britain has sent new military reinforcements to the Yemeni coasts, in conjunction with the presence of the United States and other Western powers involved in Yemeni territorial waters, in recent weeks.

The account of the Combined Maritime Forces in the Gulf said on Twitter that the British frigate T-23 arrived in the Arabian Gulf, confirming that the British battleship began its missions on April 20.

The Combined Maritime forces indicated that the frigate would work to support the joint task force known as CTF, conducting maritime navigation in the region.

The British move comes at a time when the United States is reinforcing its presence with the mutual Western powers in the Yemeni territorial waters, in recent weeks, after American forces conducted joint naval patrols in the Red Sea and Arab Sea.

These developments also came in light of British efforts to restore its colonial role in the southern provinces under the cover of the Saudi-Emirati coalition, after establishing an illegal military base in Mahrah, in the east of the country.
