Several members of the popular resistance in Yemen are undergoing extensive flight training by the UAE Armed Forces, as part of the programmes implemented by the Saudi-led Arab Coalition.

The training programme is aimed at preparing and qualifying the group members to enhance military operations in the province of Taiz.

The training is being conducted at Al Anad Air Base, Yemen's largest air base, which was renovated by the Arab Coalition forces.

The programme also includes providing training to Yemeni pilots on the aircraft used in the operations.

The Yemeni pilots executed sorties in operations areas in Taiz and Al Bayda to support the resistance and legitimacy forces. They also carried out strikes against targets in the two cities, destroying weapon depots and vehicles belonging to the Houthi militias and the deposed president, Ali Abdullah Saleh. All aircraft returned safely to their bases.
