UAE donates security vehicles and uniforms to Yemen’s Aden governorate

The UAE has donated 47 Toyota FJ Cruisers as well as police cars, motorcycles and fire trucks to Aden.

ABU DHABI // The UAE donated 11 security vehicles as well as uniforms to Aden governorate in Yemen to help improve security there.

The Emirates have donated to the southern Yemeni city 47 Toyota FJ Cruisers, 18 police cars, five motorcycles, six fire lorries, 50 fire suits, 10,000 police uniforms and airport security devices, reported the state news agency, Wam.

Last week security authorities in Aden received seven of the four-wheel drive FJ cruisers.

Receiving the vehicles and uniforms was city’s chief of security, Shallal Shaea, who praised UAE’s leadership for helping Yemen during its current conflict.

“We and our brothers in the Arab coalition and the UAE will always be united and will not allow the security and stability of Aden to be undermined,” he said.

Mr Shaea said the aid would go a long way in helping his government eliminate Houthi militia backed terrorists in the area.

Previous UAE donations toward security authorities in governorate have included the renovation of 14 government buildings and fire stations and the refurnishing of three police stations across Aden.
