yemen2-500x290Saudi Arabia announces an end to its month-long bombing of Houthi rebels in Yemen. The small Gulf nation has come a long way since Arab Spring Uprisings overthrew then president Ali Abdullah Saleh in 2012. Today, a host of Islamist militias have begun to operate from the territory, attracting the attention of major power players in the region – the US, Saudi Arabia, and Iran. Philip Maldari explores the current state of Yemen and what the Saudi Arabian bombardment of the territory aims to achieve.
