UAE Soldier Killed Fighting in Yemen

W300

An Emirati soldier was killed while on duty with a Saudi-led coalition battling Huthi rebels in Yemen, the United Arab Emirates' official WAM news agency reported on Friday. 

"The general command of the armed forces announced the martyrdom of Suleiman Mohammed Al Thuhuri, one of its soldiers involved in Operation Restoring Hope," WAM said. 

The announcement comes after a coalition raid on a rebel post in Khokha, south of the main Red Sea port of Hodeida, killed 15 rebels and wounded 20 on Wednesday, according to military sources allied with the coalition. 

A second Emirati soldier died of a heart attack, WAM said. 

Some 80 Emirati soldiers have been killed since the coalition launched its intervention in support of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi in March 2015.

More than 7,400 people have been killed since the intervention began, including around 1,400 children, according to World Health Organization figures.

Despite the coalition's superior firepower, the rebels and their allies still control the capital Sanaa and much of the northern and central highlands as well as the port of Hodeida.

@gigahab
And you know what- Nobody - Not gulf dictators nor Iranian Mullah gives a hoot if these mercenaries (Hezbollah, Pakistanis) become fertilizers...after all that's exactly why they hired them.

The difference is, Hezbollah owes Syria loyalty over the 2006 war and years of support when the entire world was against them. The Pakistanis owe the Gulf nothing but money, there is no honour or loyalty involved. Hence they fight worse.

Hahaha
The difference is - your Hezbollah mercenaires get fooled into getting paid far less for their services by Iranian Mullah BS talking them into doing it for honor & loyalty and other crappie.
The Pakistani mercenaries are professionals they don't get duped - they know what mercenary means - they want top money for their services - the Gulf dictators pays them - Nobody gives them BS crap talk about honor or loyalty to pay them less than what they are worth.

Note that I am humoring you and discussing the Pakistani mercenaries- even though nothing in this article indicates that the dead UAE soldier is of Pakistani nationality or origin...and you just lied about that.

Yeah, Hezbollah are equal allies, not bought mercenaries. That's better, you know. Gulf armies are known world-wide for being complete crap, consisting of foreign mercenaries, ruled by a few locals. So don't try to fool anyone.

No gigahabib
You are the one trying to fool us.
You don't know if the dead soldier is Pakistani. You are presuming he is. And you are doing so based on whatever BS propaganda perception you have on KSA and UAE armies. And then you have the nerve selling your "the dead soldier is Pakistani" as fact.
That tells what a deceptive liar You are.
Hence why anything you say gigahabib is thus crap.

@ gigahabib
If you want to belive that "Hezbollah are equal allies and not bought mercenaries" so you can feel better and sleep better - suit yourself.
But you would only be fooling yourself.
Everybody else sees then Hezbollah as nothing but cheap mercenaries bought for cheap by the Iranian Mullahs, who can't afford to pay as much as the Gulf monarchs so they fool their brainwashed blind following Hezbollah mercenaries into getting paid less for more BS pep talk currency about Honor and Loyalty.

Why are you here, and what is the point of your stupid comment.
Is it because you are getting a beating under your gigahabib username, and thought you could save yourself by changing subject and opening a sideshow.
Cheap pathetic shot from Loser Mystic.
