Rabat has “put at the disposition” of the coalition Moroccan warplanes already based in the United Arab Emirates, from which they have been participating in US-led strikes against the Islamic State group, a statement said. Morocco had “decided to provide all forms of support to the coalition to sustain legitimacy in Yemen through the political, intelligence, logistical and military dimensions,” the statement added. The ministry pointed out that Morocco has a “multidimensional strategic partnership” with the Gulf Cooperation Council, which groups the six Gulf monarchies, including Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
