Opposition activists say a number of Saudi tanks and other armored vehicles entered the country on Monday to intensify the Ali Abdallah Saleh regime’s months-long brutal crackdown on anti-regime protesters.
On Sunday, the Yemen Post quoted Saudi officials as saying that Riyadh would send weapons and armored vehicles into Yemen to quell the ongoing popular revolution.
The report comes as forces loyal to Saleh are continuing a brutal crackdown on anti-regime protesters in the capital Sana’a. At least 60 Yemenis have been killed in the past 24 hours.
Earlier this year, Riyadh sent hundreds of tanks and soldiers to neighboring Bahrain to support the crackdown on anti-regime protesters.
