A spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition said the Egyptian military "is now taking part with naval and aerial forces but at that time we were talking about around 30 to 40 thousand ground troops".

Meanwhile, a Saudi military Black Hawk helicopter has crashed in Yemen, killing at least 12 military personnel, Saudi official news agency SPA reported on Tuesday. His language was stronger than in an initial written statement he issued shortly after the launch, in which he simply said he was aware of the failure.
