Some Sudanese forces have partially withdrawn from areas they were deployed in Yemen, according to a military source.

Col. Waddah al-Dabeesh, a spokesman for the Yemeni army, told Anadolu Agency that the Sudanese forces participating in the West Coast military front, withdrew from three areas they were deployed in, without giving any names.

He explained that some Yemeni army forces were redeployed in these areas to replace the Sudanese forces.

The withdrawal of the Sudanese forces came after an earlier and partial withdrawal of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) forces from the same areas.

Sudan has been involved in the Yemeni war as part of the Saudi-led coalition which began since March 2015.

Sudan did not announce the number of troops participating in the war, but affirmed earlier its readiness to send 6,000 fighters to Yemen.
