U.S Marine General Frank McKenzie Arrived in the UAE
By Ali Younis
U.S. Marine General Frank McKenzie arrived in the UAE on Sunday for talks on efforts to bolster the Gulf state’s defenses after a series of missile attacks launched by Houthi fighters in Yemen.
In recent weeks, the Iran-aligned Houthis have waged an unprecedented string of largely failed missile strikes on UAE targets that have triggered Emirati and U.S. air defenses and seen American troops briefly taking shelter.
The attacks have thrown a spotlight on so-far unsuccessful U.N.-led efforts to broker an end to the war in Yemen, which since 2015 has pitted the Houthis against a Saudi Arabian-led military coalition that includes the UAE.
