Kuwait to send troops to fight Yemen rebels

KUWAIT, December 29, 2015

Kuwait has decided to send troops to its neighbour Saudi Arabia to resist attacks by the Yemeni Houthi movement, the Kuwaiti daily Al-Qabas reported on Tuesday citing an informed source.

"Kuwait decided on the participation of its ground forces, represented by an artillery battalion, in operations to strike at positions of Houthi aggression against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia," the paper said.

Though a nominal member of a Saudi-led coalition that has bombed the Iran-allied Houthis for nine months, Kuwait has held off sending ground troops to the conflict in which scores of soldiers from neighbours the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia have been killed. - Reuters
