Saudi National Guards deploys reinforcements to Southern border with Yemen

Saudi National Guards deploys reinforcements to  Southern border with Yemen to stop the advances of Houthis rebels.

The Saudi Arabian National Guard (SANG) has been ordered to deploy to the Southern border with Yemen to help defend the kingdom’s border with Yemen, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

The Saudi Arabian National Guard (SANG also known as the White Army) is one of the three major branches of the Armed Forces of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The national guard is under the administrative control of the Ministry of the National Guard, instead of the Ministry of Defence. The current Minister is Prince Mutaib bin Abdullah, who was appointed to this position byKing Abdullah on 27 May 2013. It differs from the Saudi army in being forged out of tribal elements loyal to the House of Saud and tasked with protecting the royal family from internal dangers such as a coup d’état.
