The Yemeni Civil War is an ongoing conflict that began in 2015 between two factions claiming to constitute the Yemeni government, along with their supporters and allies. Houthi forces controlling the capital Sana'a and allied with forces loyal to the former president Ali Abdullah Saleh have clashed with forces loyal to the government of Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, based in Aden.
Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and the Islamic State have also carried out attacks, with AQAP controlling swathes of territory in the hinterlands, and along stretches of the coast.
Of the country's 27 million inhabitants, seven million Yemeni people are now on the brink of starvation, according to the UN.
Food shortages in war-torn Yemen are becoming increasingly worse, as seven million people do not know how to obtain their next meal, according to the organization.
The Saudi intervention, which has included widespread bombing of civilian areas, has been sharply condemned by the international community, as have the support of the American and British governments and their alleged national interests.
