(MENAFN) The UAE is reportedly facing expulsion from the Saudi-led coalition that is tackling Houthi rebels in Yemen, with Socotra island hit with pressure after the "surprise" forces deployments.

Reports have emerged, saying that the UAE deployed a great number of troops in the Yemeni island within this week, leading for extensive condemnation from locals and top Yemeni politicians.

Speaking to The Associated Press, a government official revealed "the government is considering sending a letter to the United Nations demanding the dismissal of the Emiratis from the Yemeni intervention."

It comes after three Emirati cargo aircrafts arrived in Socotra on Wednesday, with one hundred soldiers and military equipments onboard.
