    United Arabian Emirates has deployed nine Mirage-2000 Jets To Eritrea's Assab airport for supporting military operation in Southern Yemen.

    The United Arab Emirates has deployed a combat air group that also includes two Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, two Bell 407 helicopters, one Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules transport aircraft, and two Bombardier Dash 8 turboprop airliners, according to Airbus Defence and Space satellite imagery show.

    All these jet fighters were there at the airport on 20 October, IHS Jane’s reported today.

    Moreover, this combination of aircraft is only in service with the UAE air force, which has about 40 Mirage 2000-9EAD jets and operates the Northstar Aviation 407MHR armed version of the Bell helicopter.

    During March this year, one of the UAE's mirage fighter jets had crashed in the southern port city of Aden during a combat operation, killing two pilots. Then, the coalition had released statement that it was crashed due to technical fault.
