Egypt Stands w/ Yemen

CAIRO: Egypt’s National Defense Council Sunday extended the military’s participation in a Saudi-led operation in Yemen, the presidency said in a statement. It did not specify how long the extension would be for.

“The National Defense Council agreed during the meeting to extend the participation of the required elements from the Egyptian armed forces in a combat operation outside the nation’s border to defend Egyptian and Arab national security in the Gulf, Red Sea, and Bab al-Mandab areas,” the statement said.
