ADEN, A new batch of Saudi Arabia's military forces, backed by armoured vehicles, arrived in Yemen's southern port city of Aden.
Saudi Arabia increased its presence in Aden by sending an additional batch of troops, a source said.
He said, The convoy of Saudi forces, arriving from Shabwa, headed directly to the headquarters of the Arab coalition in Aden.
The new Saudi forces will be deployed later, to help in stabilising the situation and securing the state institutions in Aden alongside with the local Yemeni forces, he added.
During the past weeks, elite Saudi troops arrived in Aden to participate in securing the strategic southern city, after the power-sharing deal was signed between the Yemeni government and the Southern Transitional Council (STC), according to local officials.
In Oct, the Saudi-led coalition announced that its forces have been re-positioned in Aden.
The move will strengthen efforts to secure waterways adjacent to the Yemeni coastlines, the statement added.
