Prolonged Conflict and COVID-19 Pandemic: A Serious Humanitarian Catastrophic for Yemen
Yemen Conflict in Brief: The Yemeni Civil War is an ongoing conflict that began in 2015 between two factions: the Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi-led Yemeni government and the Houthi armed movement, along with their supporters and allies. Both claim to constitute the official government of Yemen. Since March 2015, the conflict became more violent, resulting in continued unbearable suffering for the local population today. The Yemen conflict has become complex with the involvement of regional actors like Saudi Arabia, UAE, Iran, and a few western powers. Further involvement of Al-Qaeda, Ansar al-Sharia, and ISIL has deepened the conflict. The five-year war devastated almost every sector of the country (Orkaby, Asher. 25 March 2015. "Houthi Who?". Foreign Affairs). The most affected sectors are the food management and healthcare sector.
