Yemeni newspaper Al Omanaa praised the people and leaders of the UAE for taking up a noble stance backing Yemen and providing continuous military and humanitarian support for the Yemeni people facing the current crisis as the Houthi rebel group and forces loyal to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh wreaked havoc in Aden and other Yemeni governorates and went on a killing spree targeting innocent people.
In an article titled "Thank You Very Much UAE", published by the paper today, Yemeni writer Abdullah Salim Madram praised the UAE and Saudi Arabia of the Arab Coalition for responding to the call of Yemen's legitimate government and standing up for Yemenis to defeat "this gang of aggressors".
The writer described the Arab countries' intervention for Yemen as an "act of magnanimity and dauntlessness"
"In addition to its military role, the UAE is undertaking relief efforts to help the Yemeni people in the Governorate of Aden in particular, he said adding that that the UAE and Saudi Arabia's humanitarian intervention was timely as Yemenis in Aden suffered from lack of government institutions, electricity, funds and services due to the siege laid by the "invaders".
He noted that the two countries provided food aid, medicines, fuel and other oil derivatives after wresting Aden city from the Houthi "invadors" and partner militia.
The UAE provided power generators for Aden and is restoring all power grids and water service in the city, he noted.
The writer praised the Yemeni president for renaming a number of street in the country after Emirati martyrs. He also noted that the hospital in Al Mansoura district, known as the 22 May hospital, was also renamed after Emirati President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The writer noted that Yemenis should reciprocate love and loyalty for the UAE's support for Yemen.
