Emirati Forces to Leave Al-Anad Base under Saudi Pressure
Saudi Arabia forced the UAE troops to leave Al-Anad military base in Lahj province, local sources said on Tuesday.
The sources confirmed that the UAE troops left the military base on board of UAE military helicopters, amid chants against its presence in the base.
The Saudi forces imposed their control over the base, along with armed tribesmen from al-Sabiha tribes, the sources pointed out.
UAE troops departure came after the arrival of USA forces coming from Afghanistan to the base during the past two days.
On Sunday, the USA forces transported dozens of military vehicles, drones, Patriot air defense systems and an integrated field operations room to the base.
