On Thursday, Saudi Arabia military spokesman said that its forces and those of its allies were ready to launch ground operations inside Yemen if needed. And on Saturday, Yemeni Foreign Minister Riyad Yassin stressed he expected coalition troops to be in Yemen within days.

Yemen is currently suffering from an armed confrontation between Houthi rebels and forces loyal to the country's president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, who has fled the country amid hostilities.

On Wednesday night, Saudi Arabia-led coalition launched airstrikes against Houthi positions in the country's capital Sanaa following the Yemeni president's request.

United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Jordan, Morocco, Sudan, Pakistan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia take part in the coalition with intelligence, targeting and logistical support provided by the United States.
