 Yemen Post Staff

 

Yemen's Foreign Minister Abu Bakar Al-Qirbi has revealed about the existence of US marine forces in Sana'a that are tasked with protecting the US Embassy from any Al-Qaeda's risks.
Media sources said that the Sheraton Hotel has been completely allocated for the US forces since last June, pointing out that these forces are replaced regularly.
In an interview with the weekly Al-Wasat newspaper, Al-Qirbi affirmed that there are forces inside the Sheraton Hotel that overlooks the embassy.
He pointed out that Yemen turned to a field of regional and international interventions.
This revelation came following the killing of an American national in Taiz and threats released by Al-Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula(AQAP) in which it said it would target foreign embassies in Yemen.
The US embassy was subjected to the most violent attacks of the terrorist organization on September 17, 2008, when a number of the embassy workers and Yemeni soldiers were killed and wounded.
Yemeni news sources had stated early of March that the US sent a marine unit to protect Hadi.
However, sources of the Yemeni President Abdu-Rabo Mansour Hadi denied the news about the marine forces, stressing that Yemen has forces that could absolutely carry out their duties, asking media outlets to be accurate and credible.
Meanwhile, In remarks to the London-based Arabic-speaking newspaper Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, Al-Qirbi cautioned against the Iranian interventions in Yemen, stressing that the Iranian interventions became known for every one.
He further called the super powers to prevent Iran from interfere in Yemen's affairs, emphasizing that such interventions could affect on Yemen's security and stability.
