Yemen Conflict & Houthis: Unpacking Complexities



  Nov 06, 2023

Yemen Conflict and Houthis - An Overview



The ongoing conflict in Yemen involves multiple layers of historical, social, and political complexities. Here’s a summary incorporating symbols:


Houthi Rebels: Following Zaydi Shia Islam, the Houthi group has been actively opposing external influence, particularly from Saudi Wahhabism, since the 1990s.

Yemen Civil War: The strife escalated when Houthis seized Sana’a in 2014, leading to a civil war and proxy confrontations, symbolizing Saudi Arabia’s Sunni and Iran’s Shia geopolitical tensions.

Peacemaking Efforts: Despite the conflict, initiatives such as the UN-brokered truce in April 2022 have brought some peace, albeit fragile.

Regional Consequences: The conflict’s regional effects are significant, evidenced by the Houthis’ missile attempts on Israel and the subsequent defensive collaborations.

Humanitarian Crisis: A dire humanitarian situation unfolds, with the UN indicating that the majority of Yemenis are struggling with basic necessities.

Understanding these aspects is crucial for government civil service aspirants, as they reflect the interplay of regional politics, international relations, and human rights issues.
