US forces deployed to ‘assist’ Saudi in Yemen

A batch of US special elite forces is militarily supporting the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, according to the Independent newspaper. The new finding contradicts the Pentagon’s previously clarified role in Yemen limited to “refuelling and logistics” against the Iranian-aligned Houthi group.

Twelve Green Beret soldiers were deployed in December last year, the paper reported, following Houthi rocket fire towards Riyadh. Mohammad Bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s crown prince and principle architect of the Yemen war, called on the US to support the fight.

According to the New York Times, US forces are helping to destroy Houthi training camps and missiles to avert the risk of attack within Saudi Arabia. The Berets are also training Saudi forces to defend the Kingdom’s southern border with Yemen more effectively.
