Four UAE soldiers died after their helicopter crashed during a routine mission in Yemen, WAM reported Saturday.
"carrying out their normal mission in the Shabwa governorate in Yemen,
where their helicopter had technical failure, which led to an emergency landing
and hitting the ground," the agency said.
In 2015, Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies, including UAE, launched a massive air campaign aimed at reversing Houthi gains and shoring up Yemen’s Saudi-backed government.
