Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Abdulaziz on Tuesday ordered the deployment of an elite ground unit in the country’s ongoing campaign against Yemen’s Shiite Houthi militant group, Saudi’s official news agency has reported.
King Salman has issued a royal decree to deploy National Guard Forces in its ongoing military operation against Yemen’s Houthis – a campaign which, until Tuesday’s announcement, had been reportedly confined to air and naval bombardments.
The Daily Mail and other sources also report the Saudi Arabian National Guard, widely regarded as the kingdom’s best equipped military ground force, have been ordered to take part in Riyadh’s campaign against Iran-allied Houthi rebels in Yemen.
The Saudi Arabian National Guard has a standing force of 100,000 troops and a tribal militia of 25,000 troops.
A US aircraft carrier was headed to the Arabian Sea Tuesday as Washington said it was monitoring Iranian vessels suspected of carrying weapons to Yemeni rebels in violation of a UN embargo.
