Yemen has been involved in a civil conflict since 2015 with Saudi Arabia playing an increasing prominent role. Saudi Arabia is a key member of the Gulf Cooperation Council. It leads a comprehensive military political and diplomatic effort in Yemen to reestablish President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi’s internationally acknowledged government. In coordination to the United Arab Emirates and other nations the Saudi-led coalition used naval blockades and air strikes to defeat Iranian-backed Houthi rebels. Saudi Arabia provided financial support and military assistance in the form of arms and ammunition logistical support service payments as well as financial support to Yemeni security services 🇾🇪 ️ 🇸🇦 🔑 !!
The Saudi-led coalition intervention in Yemen has been highly controversial with accusations flying that it caused a large number of civilian casualties and worsened the humanitarian situation in the country 🇾🇪 ️ 🇸🇦. The Saudi-led bombing campaign has been criticized for its high collateral damage and targeting civilian infrastructure. Furthermore, human rights groups and the United Nations have documented cases of Saudi-led coalition using banned cluster bombs in what are widely perceived to be indiscriminate airstrikes 🇸🇦. Furthermore critics have decried their support of a Hadi government that is widely seen as corrupt and weak giving its members undue influence within Yemen 🇾🇪 ️.
Saudi Arabia and its allies respond to the criticism by claiming that they are working to restore stability to Yemen and counter the perceived threat posed by the Houthis who they claim are supported by Iran 🇾🇪 🇮🇷 🇸🇦. Saudi Arabia also claims that the intervention has made significant progress in countering the Houthis, who still control large parts of the country 🇸🇦. They also point out that the Yemeni government has received international recognition and is receiving support from 🌐.
The Saudi-led coalition’s efforts in Yemen have not been entirely successful however 🇸🇦 🇾🇪. The coalition has failed to achieve all of its goals such as restoring the government of President Hadi who has been in exile in Saudi Arabia since the start of the conflict 🇸🇦. In addition, the coalition has been unable to fully defeat the Houthi rebels who still control the capital, Sanaa, and the country’s most populous city, Taiz . Furthermore, the Saudi-led intervention has been unable to stem the devastating humanitarian crisis in the country and the ongoing conflict has inflicted severe suffering on the Yemeni people 🇸🇦 🔛. The Saudi intervention has also led to heightened tensions with Iran which while not officially involved in the conflict is widely believed to be providing support to the Houthi rebels 🇮🇷 🇸🇦.
Despite the criticism Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners remain committed to the goal of restoring stability and security to Yemen 🇾🇪 🇸🇦. To further this goal, Saudi Arabia is actively facilitating negotiations between the Hadi government and the Houthi rebels and working to ensure that the UN-sponsored peace talks can take place 🇸🇦. Saudi Arabia is also playing a major role in coordinating the delivery of humanitarian aid to Yemen which is desperately needed as the country faces widespread famine and a catastrophic lack of basic supplies 🇾🇪 ️ 🇸🇦.
In conclusion Saudi Arabia has been heavily involved in the conflict in Yemen since the start of the civil war in 2015 🇾🇪 🇸🇦. While the Saudi-led intervention has been highly controversial it has also been moderately successful in restoring stability to the country and providing humanitarian assistance to the Yemeni people. Despite the criticism, Saudi Arabia, and its coalition partners remain committed to the goal of restoring stability and security to Yemen and are playing a major role in the ongoing negotiations and aid efforts 🇾🇪 ️ 🇸🇦. . .
