SAUDI Arabian forces, joined by nine other countries, have launched a military operation in Yemen against Shiite Houthi rebels, the Saudi ambassador to the US said. The offensive, which started with airstrikes, will also involve “other military assets.”
THE US government has donated a C-130E Hercules military transport aircraft to the Ethiopian Air Force. Reliable sources told The Reporter that the Ethiopian Air Force has acquired the aircraft that was being operated by the US Air Force.
THE Ethiopian Satellite Television (ESAT) today reportsthat it has established its first contact with the three Ethiopian Air Force pilots who defected last month to a third country [Eritrea] with their MI-35 Helicopter gunship.
NORMALLY regimes do not lose such an important asset just like that. Fighter jets or helicopters just do not fly out of the coop so easily. But we are talking about Ethiopia here and no matter how you look at it, ours is not a normal regime. Six percent of any group do not control hundred percent of the decision making. Even in business it requires fifty plus one to have a controlling interest.
