‘Saudi armored vehicles enter Yemen’

Wed Sep 14, 2011

Saudi Arabia has reportedly dispatched a convoy of armored vehicles and military assistance to Yemen to help Sana’a crack down on the popular revolution.

Sources affiliated with the Yemeni opposition were cited by the independent pan-Arab daily Al-Quds Al-Arabi as saying, “A motorcade of Saudi armored vehicles and military aid entered the Yemeni soil to help the forces of the regime of [Yemen’s] Ali Abdullah Saleh,” Mehr News Agency reported on Wednesday.

The sources said it was the second time Riyadh was sending such vehicles to Yemen since the start of the revolution, which has been demanding an end to corruption and unemployment as well as Saleh’s ouster.

Riyadh has a history of aiding Sana’a in carrying out a deadly suppressive campaign against Yemen’s north-based Shia population, known as the Houthis.

In March, the kingdom deployed forces to Bahrain to abet the Bahraini regime’s crackdown against a similar anti-government popular uprising.
