French special forces on the ground in Yemen: Le Figaro | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


French special forces on the ground in Yemen: Le Figaro

French special forces are present on the ground in Yemen with forces from the United Arab Emirates, French newspaper Le Figaro reported on Saturday, citing two military sources.

The newspaper gave no further information about their activities. The Defence Ministry was not immediately available for comment, but its usual policy is not to comment on special forces’ operations.

A French parliamentary source recently told Reuters French special forces were in Yemen.

Forces from an Arab alliance entered the airport in Yemen’s main port city on Saturday, in the biggest battle of the coalition’s war against the Iran-aligned Houthi movement.

The French Defence Ministry said on Friday that France was studying the possibility of carrying out a mine-sweeping operation to provide access to the port of Hodeidah once the coalition had wrapped up its military operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How convenient for the Saudis, that France is about to participate in the genocide of the Yemeni people!!

And we have a little companion piece to that, courtesy of antiwar.com:

UAE says that the US government rejected repeated requests to help attack Yemeni port

How true this is, remains to be seen; but it appears that the US government has suddenly understood that the optics of the US military participating in this slaughter of the Yemeni people, is not going particularly well for them, as more and more Americans realize that their country's military has been participating in Saudi war crimes for years.
