Pakistan and Sudan manifested their willingness to contribute ground troops against the houthis, said Al Arabiya News Channel.
Egypt has also showed commitment to participate ground troops in the Saudi-led military campaign.
According to news, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar has deployed 30, 15, 15, 10 fighter jets respectively and Jordan contributed 6 warplanes.
The Houthis who have been spreading violence came into mainstream in September last year and since then they have been spreading their wings and took control of many parts of the country.
The Houthis has major support among the various sections of the security forces of the country and from the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh and Iran, said sources.
The Yemen’s takeover by Houthis would have many serious implications on the regional as well as on the international stage. Yemen occupies the very significant location in the Middle East as it has Bab al-Mandab Strait, which link the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden, passing through it.
Saudi and Egypt feared that if Houthi takeover the country, they will threaten the free passage through the Strait. In this regard Saudi Arabia is leading the alliance of the countries which showed eagerness to hamper the challenge as posed by Houthis.
Saudi Arabia deployed largest number of fighter jets and ground soldiers as a part of military operation against yemen’s Houthi rebels.
