Saudi Arabia and its coalition backed the country’s official government and it has spent more than seven years fighting a rebel group of Yemen called Houthis, using its air strikes. It was started in 2011 when a popular uprising in Yemen forced its long-standing authoritarian president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, to hand over power to his deputy, Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.
Yemen’s neighbour Saudi Arabia was alarmed by the prospect of the Houthis taking control of Yemen slowly. It feared Saudi Arabia that it would become a satellite of its rival, Iran.
