White House Confirms The Presence of US Forces in Yemen


The White House confirmed the presence of US forces in Yemen and its contribution to providing what it called military information to the Saudi-led coalition that is fighting a war in the country that suffers from a humanitarian crisis.

The White House said that a small number of American forces are in Yemen, justifying this by fighting al-Qaeda and the Islamic State organization.

The White House also acknowledged providing what it called “military advice and limited information” to the Saudi-led coalition for defensive and training purposes.
