Who are these ground troops, are they Saudi's or just mercenaries fighting under the KSA flag?

Heavy losses for Saudi Coalition in Yemen!

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/ ... er-country

September 7, 2015 — 10:08 AM CEST Updated on September 7, 2015 — 1:49 PM CEST

About 1,000 troops from Qatar entered Yemen on Sunday from the Wadia post on the border with Saudi Arabia, the Qatari-owned Al Jazeera television reported. The soldiers, backed by armored vehicles and missile launchers, were on their way to Yemen’s oil-rich central Marib province, it said. Qatar’s foreign ministry didn’t immediately respond to calls seeking comment.
The deployment comes after 45 troops from the United Arab Emirates and 10 Saudi soldiers were killed in Marib on Friday, the worst setback to date for the Saudi-led coalition since it began its offensive in March. Mounting losses will test the will of the Gulf states to extend their involvement after helping the internationally recognized government of President Abdurabuh Mansur Hadi retake parts of southern Yemen.
Expanding the ground war carries a “huge risk of heavy casualties” for the Gulf Arab monarchies, said Ibrahim Fraihat, senior foreign policy fellow at the Brookings Doha Center. “Yemen has historically proved to be a very tough spot for foreign armies to fight and win.”
************************

TOTAL WAR in Yemen means 10s of millions of more refugees fleeing to Europe may be also to Germany the New Holy Land!

But stop and think to the end there will be new fashist movement in whole EU if this is going on.

Obama and Merkel will set whole EU on fire if they do not act with full NATO FORCE.

The civil peace in Europe is in danger!

Yemen's exiled leader calls off peace talks with rebels
Hadi refuses to negotiate with Houthis unless rebels accept UN resolution obliging them to give up seized territories.
13 Sep 2015 08:24 GMT | War & Conflict, Middle East, Yemen

In a statement released on Sunday Hadi said that there would be no talks with the Houthis until they accept a UN resolution that obliged them to withdraw from areas they seized and surrender weapons taken from state institutions.

The peace negotiations were scheduled for later this week as more than five months of war has ravaged the impoverished country.

So MBS thinks Saudi bombing of Yemen is evil but western bombing of Yemen is an imperative to prevent adding millions more to waves of refugees? Making a lot of sense. Not. Yemenis will control the ground in Yemen until the end of the world. It is one of the harshest terrains in the world, warmer than Afghanistan but even more mountainous. The west can't sort anything out anymore, it's too late. So it will smash out in fury, ineffectively. The refugee invasion is just getting started.

In an age of 24/7 news coverage, social media and videos going viral, the war in Yemen must rank as one of the most under-reported in recent times, despite a few brave visits by intrepid journalists and film crews.
Yemen can be a remote, difficult and dangerous country to cover, and that is in peace time.
Now, six months after Saudi-led air strikes against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels began on 26 March, the war in Yemen has taken a terrible toll on the Arab world's poorest nation, with both sides accused of committing war crimes and most of the casualties being caused by the aerial bombing.

HomeMiddle EastMore Mon Sep 28, 2015 9:8AM

At least 75 civilians mostly women and children have been killed after a Saudi airstrike on a wedding party in Yemen's southwestern province of Ta’izz as more civilians fall victim to the kingdom's military aggression against its impoverished southern neighbor.

Yemen's al-Masirah news channel reported on Monday that the attack hit a wedding ceremony in the port city of Mocha.

UN chief condemns deadly air strike in Yemen
Arab coalition denies local officials' claim its air strike killed 135 civilians at wedding party near port of al-Mokha.
29 Sep 2015 12:13 GMT | Politics, War & Conflict, Middle East, Yemen, Saudi Arabia

The UN chief has strongly condemned a reported attack in Yemen blamed for the deaths of an estimated 135 civilians at a wedding party, while calling for an investigation.

Local residents and witnesses said that coalition aircraft had carried out intense raids against Houthi positions in the al-Mokha area in recent days.

A Saudi official told the European Parliament that his country was abiding by international law in its military campaign.

"Of course there is always going to be some casualties in any military conflict," Mohammed bin Amin al-Jefri, deputy speaker of Saudi Arabia's Consultative Assembly, said in Brussels.

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Yemen’s exiled government has agreed to participate in peace talks with a rebel group known as the Houthis in a possible step toward ending the nearly seven-month conflict in Yemen, government officials and the United Nations said on Monday. The Houthis had previously indicated their willingness to attend the talks, which could be held in the next few weeks in Geneva, diplomats said.

Riyadh: Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir said Wednesday that he sees the Yemen war nearing its end.

"One of the indications that the campaign is nearing its end is the fact that ... Ali Abdullah Saleh and Al Houthis are accepting UN Security Council Resolution 2216 and entering into talks the UN on that basis,” Al Jubeir told a press conference with his British counterpart in the Saudi capital Riyadh.

“We also see the gains that have been made on the ground. Most of Yemen’s territory that was captured by the rebels has been recaptured,” he added.

It was also Al Jubeir who announced the launch of an air campaign by a Saudi-led coalition against Iranian-allied Al Houthi militia forces in Yemen last March.

In Yemen War, Mercenaries Launched By Blackwater Head Were Spotted Today -- Not Good News
NOV 26, 2015
The United Arab Emirates, as reported in today’s New York Times, has hired foreign mercenaries, from a program launched by Blackwater’s head Erik Prince, and secretly sent them to the fighting in Yemen. This is not a good sign. Blackwater private security alienated Iraqis against the United States. Now the use of foreign mercenaries will signify to the “outs” in the Middle East that the rich will buy guns-for-hire to use against them.

This program gets laid out in a New York Times piece entitled, “Emirates Secretly Sends Colombian Mercenaries to Yemen Fight.” It explains that this is “the first combat deployment for a foreign army that the Emirates has quietly built in the desert over the past five years.” The Emirates had a brigade of 1,800 soldiers from Latin America which provided 450 troops now arriving in Yemen. It seems there are also going to be hundreds of other foreign mercenaries — Sudanese and Eritrean soldiers — brought into Yemen.

These can be viewed as a second generation of foreign mercenaries hired by the countries of the Arabian Peninsula. In the first generation, still powerful, in 1975 Saudi Arabia brought in Vinnell Corporation, an American defense contractor, to train the “Saudi Arabian National Guard.” This is a force outside the official Saudi military and the Ministry of Defense (and larger than the Saudi military). Instead, the 75,000 man National Guard reports to the King. This makes its main duty to suppress internal political unrest that challenges the state’s authoritarian structure. Vinnell receives $819 million for its maintaining 1000 employees in Saudi Arabia doing contract work with the National Guard and Royal Air Force.

The little-known Vinnell is now owned by Northrop Grumman. It has undertaken projects in fifty other countries, including for the United States in the Vietnam War, when it ran secret intelligence programs. Its advantages include giving the Saudis the very top-grade American support without any “official” United States involvement.

In 2011, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia’s neighbor and ally, was shaken during the Arab Spring by unrest. It has a downtrodden Shia majority ruled over by a Sunni minority. The Saudis sent the Vinnell-trained National Guard in, with other forces, to crush the unrest.

The Saudi Royal Army reportedly suffered heavy losses on Tuesday when the Yemeni Army’s missile battalion targeted the Jizan regional airbase in southern Saudi Arabia with a Type-1 Qahir ballistic missile. According to both Al-Masirah and Al-Manar, the Saudi Crown Prince and Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman paid a quick visit under very tight security measures to the Jizan Public Hospital to check the dead and wounded among his soldiers who were killed in the strike on the Airport earlier this week.
