In a bid to defeat the Sunni terrorist group that has claimed responsibility for the attacks on Saudi Arabia’s diplomatic missions in the United States and Europe, Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners are launching airstrikes in Yemen, according to Saudi-based media outlets.
The attacks are being carried out by a coalition of countries led by the United Arab Emirates, which is allied with the United Kingdom, according the reports.
The airstrikes are aimed at killing ISIS fighters and their foreign fighters and to eliminate a large part of the organization’s infrastructure.
Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Emirate and the UAE launched their operations against ISIS on Oct. 31 in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, and in the neighboring country of Oman.
They launched airstrikes against ISIS targets in Saudi Arabia in late October.
According to the report, a total of 13,000 airstrikes were launched, killing nearly 2,500 ISIS fighters, according media reports.
In the latest airstrikes, the coalition said that its fighters have destroyed the main ISIS command-and-control center in the northern province of Hadramawt, which was once home to the group’s military command center, the Saudi-led military said in a statement.
ISIS fighters have reportedly used the command- and-control centers to move fighters around Yemen and in to other areas.
The coalition said in the statement that its aircrafts have struck multiple ISIS military and command-centers in the area, and also destroyed a number of vehicles, vehicles and training camps.
“The coalition has carried out airstrikes in the southern Hadramaws southern province of Aden against a number a terrorist facilities in coordination with our partners and allies in the coalition, and has destroyed a large number of these facilities,” it said in its statement.
Saudi-backed coalition strikes in Yemen in early 2018 The coalition’s actions are part of an ongoing effort to “degrade and destroy” the terrorist group in Yemen.
The U.S.-backed coalition is in a coalition battle against ISIS in Yemen that began in mid-2018, with the U.K. and its Arab allies supporting the operation.
The campaign has resulted in the destruction of a number terror bases and infrastructure in the country.
In mid-September, a Saudi-funded coalition of Sunni states, led by King Salman and his UAE counterpart, announced the start of airstrikes in support of the U,K.-led coalition.
In September, a U.N. Security Council vote approved a resolution calling for the destruction or seizure of terrorist strongholds in Yemen and a ban on foreign military financing of ISIS, as well as a U-turn in support for the Saudi coalition.
The United States has also supported the Saudi campaign, sending thousands of troops to the country and providing weapons and training to the Saudis.
The Saudis have also intensified their airstrikes in Aden.
In early September, U.J. and other international news outlets reported that the United Nations and the Arab League have authorized airstrikes in a bid by Saudi Arabia to push back the Houthi rebels who have seized control of Yemen’s largest city, Sana’a.
The UN Security Council approved the resolution in a 2-1 vote on Sept. 28.
The vote followed an Arab League statement condemning the attacks and calling for a cease-fire in Yemen as well.
The UAE-led campaign against ISIS has also led to a reduction in the number of foreign fighters traveling to Yemen.
According the latest figures, the Uyghur Emirate, led the campaign against the terror group in the Yemeni capital, Aden, has taken back some of its territory.
The Emirate’s fighters have been deployed to the northern city of Taiz, a strategic city that is the seat of the country’s political leadership.
“In light of the recent military gains of the Emirate against ISIS and the recent withdrawal of the Yemeni Army from Taiz to Aden, the UAE has withdrawn its forces from the city of Aden,” the Emirates statement said.
In the early 2020s, the Saudis and their allies in neighboring Gulf states led by Bahrain and Kuwait launched airstrikes in an effort to stop the Houthis, a group that is considered a proxy for the Houthizas, from controlling parts of the north and east of the Arabian Peninsula country.
The Saudi-allied coalition, which includes the United Emirates and the United Saudi Arabia forces, has been carrying out airstrikes against the Houths in the north of the Yemen, in addition to targeting their base in Taiz.
In January 2018, Saudi-aligned forces, led, in part, by Emirati forces, took over Taiz and several other areas in the Houth’s territory.
After the UAE and the coalition took control of Taif, they deployed tens of thousands of fighters to the city.
In late September, Bahrain launched airstrikes on the Houth and forces loyal to the Houth.
The strikes were reportedly carried out in an attempt to prevent the Houth forces from taking control of the northern
