Yemen has been suffering from a civil war and a Saudi-led military intervention for around two years.

The civil war began after the Houthi militants, with support from forces loyal to the former president, ousted the UN-backed transitional government and occupied the capital, Sanaa, militarily in Sept, 2014.

The legitimate government controls the south and some eastern parts, while the Houthi/Saleh alliance controls the other parts, including the capital, Sanaa.

The civil war, ground battles and air strikes have already killed more than 10,000 people, half of them civilians, injured more than 35,000, and displaced over two million, according to humanitarian agencies.
