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 150,000 people have died as a direct result of the violence as of mid-2022, including over 15,000 civilians killed in targeted attacks.

Yemen Truce Monitor

From April to October 2022, a truce mediated by the United Nations between the Houthis and the internationally recognized government was in place in Yemen. To help assess the impact of the agreement, ACLED created the Yemen Truce Monitor, an interactive tool to support analysis of conflict trends and reported violations during the truce period.

Mapping Territorial Control in Yemen

Our quarterly Yemen control map assesses conflict activity at the district level across the country, classifying each area as contested, inactive, or controlled by an actor based on the latest ACLED data.

In March 2021, Yemen entered the seventh year of war since the launch of the Saudi-led military campaign against the Houthi-Saleh alliance, after the latter took over the country’s capital. The war in Yemen is multilayered and has resulted in the country’s deep fragmentation at all levels, leading some to conclude that “a unified Yemeni state no longer exists.”
