Yemen: UAE pulls back as war continues to wreck lives
UAE drawdown: UAE officials have confirmed the Emirates are reducing their military commitment, in the process starting a new phase in the war. The extent of the UAE drawdown remains unclear.

In the meantime, Saudi Arabia is being forced to deploy forces into areas vacated by the UAE.
