The United States is looking at providing refueling and early-warning radar aircraft to Saudi Arabia in support of a Riyadh-led military operation in Yemen against Huhti rebels, officials told AFP on Thursday.
"It's definitely on the table and being discussed," a defense official said of the possible assistance. The White House announced on Wednesday the United States will provide intelligence and logistics support to the Saudi-led coalition of Gulf states, and officials said that would likely include information gathered from surveillance drones.
