Yemen Conflict

In 2015, a coalition led by Saudi Arabia launched a military intervention in Yemen to restore the government of President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi following the Houthi takeover of Sanaa in late 2014. ACLED estimates that more than 155,000 people have died as a direct result of the violence as of March 2022, including over 15,000 civilians killed in targeted attacks.

Yemen Truce Monitor

On 1 April 2022, UN Special Envoy for Yemen Hans Grundberg announced that the parties to the conflict — referring to the Houthis and the Hadi government (International Crisis Group, 8 April 2022) — had agreed to a renewable two-month truce to take effect on 2 April. To help track the impact of the truce, ACLED has created the Yemen Truce Monitor. This page includes an interactive dashboard updated every Tuesday with data from the previous week, as well as weekly analysis and information on military operations in the country included in weekly regional overviews.
