So since it is most likely not too many Emirati citizens doing the dying in Yemen for the UAE I was wondering who did, remembering some article on Colombian mercs fighting in Yemen, search says:

Quote:
Latin American mercenaries are leaving the ranks of the national armies of their countries to fight in the deserts of Yemen, wearing the uniform of the United Arab Emirates. They have been contracted by private US companies and in some cases directly by the government of the Arab country, which, thanks to vast oil reserves, has the second largest economy of the region.

The Chadian soldiers fought with the French in Mali and Sahel against jihadist, since 2013. They are considered as very good troops, largely better than the average African armies.
