Yemen It has been plagued by civil war since 2014 when Iran-backed Houthi rebels captured the capital of Sanaa, forcing the internationally recognized government to flee south, then to Saudi Arabia. The Saudi-led coalition entered the war in March 2015 to try to restore the government to power.

The war has largely turned into a stalemate and has led to one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.
