A battalion of 300 troops from the North African country of Sudan arrived in Yemen’s port city of Aden in support of Saudi-led coalition forces battling Houthi rebels, Reuters reported Sunday.

A military source speaking with Reuters said the battalion, comprised of 300 soldiers and officers, arrived in Aden by sea Saturday to “help maintain security for the city against the Houthis and Saleh,” referring to former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh.

“Our troops in Yemen are ready to do their military task under the command of the alliance military leadership,” Sudanese army spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed Khalifa Alshami said. “Sudan is committed to restore legitimacy in Yemen.”

The Arab coalition spokesman, Brigadier General Ahmed al-Assiri confirmed the arrival of the Sudanese troops to Arab television channels, Reuters reported.
