Sudan sends troops to Yemen

On 17 October 2015 Sudan entered the Yemen War with its ground troops. The first Sudanian troops arrived at Aden and numbered about a battalion. The Sunni coalition fighting against the Iranian-backed Houthi regime in Yemen now includes Saudi, Emirati, Egyptian, Qatari, Bahreini and Sudanian forces, besides the forces of the Yemeni government itself.

While the Sunni coalition forces are on the offensive and gradually take ground, Houthi forces are offering stiff resistance.
