Sudan minister has confirmed that Khartoum shall join the Egyptian warships in in their quest to secure the Gulf of Aden.
The two countries on Thursday pledged to participate in the Saudi-led war against the Houthis in the fight to secure the Gulf of Aden.
The war which has recently been experienced in Yemen saw the country’s president flee from his refuge when the Houthi rebels attacked on Wednesday. These Shiite Muslims in Yemen receiving support from Iran will soon have to face operations by Egypt, Jordan, Sudan and Pakistan in a drive to weaken their forces.
Houthis fighting to outcast Yemen President’s regime have been receiving support from the Shiite in Iran. Saudi Arabia, being supported by other regional Sunni Muslim groups has however intensified the war against them in Yemen.
The Houthis had seized Sanaa, the largest city in Yemen forcing Hadi out of the Capital.
Some of the major project which could be at risk during this operation include the state-run oil producing Kuwait Petroleum Corp (KPC) which has so far beefed its security around its oil facilities, both inside and outside the country.
The ongoing operations have led to close to 6% rise in crude oil prices since the operation began. This is because most oil tankers from Arab producers such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and Iraq have to pass through war infested Yemen’s coastlines through the narrow Gulf of Aden in order to get through the Red Sea and Suez Canal to Europe.
