Houthis Say Over 4,000 Sudanese Soldiers Killed In Yemen War Since 2015

SANAA At least 4,000 Sudanese soldiers have been killed in Yemen since 2015, as part of the the Saudi-led coalition, fighting against the Houthi rebels, a Houthi military spokesman said.

The coalition pushes Sudanese soldiers to the front-lines in Yemen, where they come face to face with our forces, Yahya Sarea said.

Our forces have captured hundreds of Sudanese soldiers during battles, Sarea noted, as al-Masirah broadcast footage showed a long line of what the Yemeni rebels said were captured Sudanese soldiers.

There was no immediate confirmation from the coalition or the Sudanese government on the claims.

Sudan sent hundreds of ground troops to Yemen in 2015, to reinforce the Arab coalition.

The Saudi-led Arab coalition intervened in Yemen's civil war in Mar, 2015, at the request of Yemeni President, Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, after the Houthi rebels forced him into exile.
