Condemning the October 3 Houthi Missile Attack (US Department of State)

The United States condemns the October 3 Houthi missile attack on the densely populated neighborhood of al-Rawdha in Marib, Yemen, which killed two children and injured an estimated 33 civilians, including women and children, according to UN agencies.  Civilians will suffer as long as the brutal Houthi military offensives continue.  There is an international consensus that now is the time to end the conflict, and the Republic of Yemen Government and Saudi Arabia have committed to stop fighting and resume political talks.  The Houthis are standing in the way of peace.

Since the beginning of the year, the Houthis have intensified their attacks, both inside Yemen and against Saudi Arabia, endangering the lives of civilians, including more than 70,000 U.S. citizens living in Saudi Arabia.  These actions exacerbate Yemen’s humanitarian crisis, which has already reached historic proportions.

We call on the Houthis to stop fighting and engage in UN-led talks to bring an end to this devastating war.

Chaos Makes a Comeback in Southern Yemen (Ali Mahmood, Fair Observer)

The six-year conflict in Yemen currently sees a stalemate in Mareb and mounting losses by pro-government forces elsewhere. This has led to the resurgence of chaos in the war-torn country, which threatens stability across liberated areas of the south.

Houthi rebels based in Sanaa, the Yemeni capital, have made advances against pro-government forces in al-Baydha province. They have also pushed southern forces, Salafi factions and al-Islah affiliates out of southern districts. Houthis also claim to have defeated militants belonging to al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), who fought alongside tribes, Salafis and pro-government forces.

Yemen’s Houthi movement says that authorities have executed nine men convicted of involvement in the 2018 killing of Saleh al-Sammad, then the armed group’s top civilian leader.

Al-Sammad, who held the post of president in the Houthi-controlled administration that runs most of northern Yemen, was killed in April 2018 by a Saudi Arabia-led coalition air attack in the port city of Hodeidah on Yemen’s west coast.

Saudi Arabia’s Shrinking Options in Yemen (Prasanta Kumar Pradhan, IDSA)

Despite more than six years of Saudi-led military offensive against the Houthis, the situation in Yemen remains extremely complex and challenging for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Houthis have captured large parts of the Yemeni territory in the north-west of the country including the capital Sanaa. The Saudi-led military coalition’s twin objectives of pushing the Houthis back from Sanaa and reinstating the internationally recognised government of President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi remain unfulfilled.
