UAE forces officially hands over west coast supervision tasks to Saudi forces command


UAE forces on Sunday handed over the tasks of overseeing the West Coast Front in Taiz and Hodeidah provinces to Saudi forces as part of the preliminary steps to sign the Riyadh agreement between the Yemeni government and the Southern Transitional Council( STC).

The Media Center of the Giants Forces deployed on the West Coast Front said that leaders of the Giants Brigades met on Sunday with the commander of the Arab Coalition forces in Aden, Brigadier General Rashid al-Ghafili.

According to the Giants Media Center, the meeting discussed "matters related to the military situation and developments on the front lines of the fighting."

In recent months, UAE forces have withdrawn their troops from the west coast from the outskirts of Hodeidah to the Bab al-Mandab Strait in the southwest of Taiz province under pressure from the Yemeni government.

The handover of supervision functions on Yemen’s west coast front to the Saudi leadership coincides with the announcement of the Arab Coalition leadership to reposition its forces in the interim capital Of Aden as part of the preliminary field preparations agreed before the Riyadh agreement is signed.
