    (ANSAmed) - SHARM EL-SHEIKH (EGYPT), MARCH 26 - Egyptian and Saudi forces will conduct a ground operation in Yemen against Shia Houthi rebels, three unnamed officials told the Associated Press (AP) on Thursday.

    The forces are expected to enter Yemen overland from Saudi Arabia and by landings on Yemen's Red and Arabian Sea coasts. The sources did not specify the number of troops that would be deployed in the attack nor when it would be launched, but did say that the operation would begin once airstrikes had weakened the rebels and the forces loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh. The attack, which other unnamed nations will be taking part in, aims to push the rebels to negotiate, the sources added.
