Dozens of Yemeni troops defect

Sahwa Net- Dozens of Yemeni troops defected from the Republican Guard and the Central Security on Saturday and declared joining to the Yemeni revolution.

 

The Yemeni protesters warmly welcomed the defected troops, calling on all other soldiers to join to the Yemeni revolution.

 

The Yemeni army's defections continue as the Yemen President Ali Abdullah Saleh always refuses to sign the GCC deal.

 

It was reported that the Republican Guard and the Central Security arrested soldiers who defect from the government forces in an attempt to stop them from joining the anti-regime protest movement, said a senior security official.
