Yemen’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hussein Al-Ezzi, called on Egypt to distance itself from supporting the Saudi-led coalition forces in Yemen.
“Beloved Egypt should distance itself from supporting cheap mercenaries in Yemen,” he said on Twitter.
على الحبيبة مصر أن تنأى بنفسها عن دعم المرتزقة الرخاص في اليمن ( مالهاش صالح في الأمور دي خالص )
وغلاوة قناة السويس اللي عمرها ماكانتشي حلوة الا من حلاوتنا دحنا بنحب مصر وياريت نفضل حبايب أحسن .

Al-Ezzi’s tweet came in conjunction with a visit by an Egyptian military delegation 4 days ago to the city of Aden, which the coalition takes as its headquarters.
Observers considered that the Egyptian delegation’s visit to Aden came as a result of US-British pressure to provide support to the coalition forces, as part of Washington and London’s efforts to obstruct the ongoing negotiations between Sana’a and Riyadh.
