Sudan assess role in war against Yemen

(MENAFN) On Wednesday, Sudan said it is reassessing its military involvement in Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.

"We are conducting a study to assess the participation of the Sudanese troops in the alliance, including the advantages and disadvantages of this participation," Ali Mohamed Salem, Sudan's state minister for defense, said in a statement.

Although Sudanese army has been participating in the Saudi-led military coalition since 2015, critics point that several countries members of the Saudi-led coalition did not send troops to Yemen. Others say Saudi Arabia and UAE provides financial support to other countries but not Sudan despite its difficult financial situation.

Saudi Arabia and some other countries attacked Yemen in March 2015 to re-empower the deposed president of Yemen Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Thousands of Yemenis have been killed in the Arabian-American coalition's attack and more than 2,000 have died due to cholera epidemic.
