ISIL has claimed recent, bloody suicide bombings in Houthi mosques and Sana'a when it once had no known presence in the country, while AQAP has continued to seize territory in eastern Yemen unhindered by American drone strikes.
It did not injure any civilians. The Yemeni revolution followed other Arab Spring mass protests in early The uprising was initially against unemployment, economic conditions, and corruption, as well as against the government's proposals to modify the constitution of Yemen so that Saleh's son could inherit the presidency.
In Marchpolice snipers opened fire on a pro-democracy camp in Sana'a, killing more than 50 people. In May, dozens were killed in clashes between troops and tribal fighters in Sana'a. By this point, Saleh began to lose international support. On 23 NovemberSaleh flew to Riyadh, in neighbouring Saudi Arabia, to sign the Gulf Co-operation Council plan for political transition, which he had previously spurned. Upon signing the document, he agreed to legally transfer the office and powers of the presidency to his deputy, Vice President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.
Hadi took office for a two-year term upon winning the uncontested presidential elections in February Al-Hadi would oversee the drafting of a new constitution, followed by parliamentary and presidential elections in Saleh returned in February In the face of objections from thousands of street protesters, parliament granted him full immunity from prosecution.
Saleh's son, General Ahmed Ali Abdullah Salehcontinues to exercise a strong hold on sections of the military and security forces. AQAP claimed responsibility for a February suicide attack on the presidential palace that killed 26 Republican Guards on the day that President Hadi was sworn in. AQAP was also behind a suicide bombing that killed 96 soldiers in Sana'a three months later. In Septembera car bomb attack in Sana'a killed 11 people, a day after a local al-Qaeda leader Said al-Shihri was reported killed in the south.
Bythere has been a "small contingent of U. The central government in Sana'a remained weak, staving off challenges from southern separatists and Shia rebels as well as AQAP. The Shia insurgency intensified after Hadi took power, escalating in September as anti-government forces led by Abdul-Malik al-Houthi swept into the capital and forced Hadi to agree to a "unity" government.
Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, a cousin of the new acting president, called the takeover a "glorious revolution. Hadi managed to flee from Sana'a to Aden, his hometown and stronghold in the southon 21 February He promptly gave a televised speech rescinding his resignation, condemning the coup, and calling for recognition as the constitutional president of Yemen.
All U. On 26 MarchSaudi Arabia announced Operation Decisive Storm and began airstrikes and announced its intentions to lead a military coalition against the Houthiswhom they claimed were being aided by Iranand began a force buildup along the Yemeni border. The United States announced that it was assisting with intelligence, targeting, and logistics. Saudi Arabia and Egypt would not rule out ground operations.
After Hadi troops took control of Aden from Houthis, jihadist groups are active in the city, and some of terrorist incidents were linked to it such as Missionaries of Charity attack in Aden in 4 March More than 50, children in Yemen died from starvation in Many of the islands are volcanic; for example Jabal al-Tair had a volcanic eruption inand before that in Although mainland Yemen is in the southern Arabian Peninsula and thus part of Asiaand its Hanish Islands and Perim in the Red Sea are associated with Asia, the archipelago of Socotra, which lies east of the horn of Somalia and is much closer to Africa than to Asia.
Yemen can be divided geographically into four main regions: the coastal plains in the west, the western highlands, the eastern highlands, and the Rub' al Khali in the east. Despite the aridity, the presence of many lagoons makes this region very marshy and a suitable breeding ground for malaria mosquitos. Extensive crescent-shaped sand dunes are present. The evaporation in the Tihamah is so great that streams from the highlands never reach the sea, but they do contribute to extensive groundwater reserves.
Today, these are heavily exploited for agricultural use. The Tihamah ends abruptly at the escarpment of the western highlands. Temperatures are hot in the day, but fall dramatically at night. Perennial streams occur in the highlands, but these never reach the sea because of high evaporation in the Tihamah. This area is drier than the western highlands because of rain-shadow influences, but still receives sufficient rain in wet years for extensive cropping.
Water storage allows for irrigation and the growing of wheat and barley.
Sana'a is in this region. It is populated only by Bedouin herders of camels. The growing scarcity of water is a source of increasing international concern. See Water supply and sanitation in Yemen. The flora of Yemen is a mixture of the tropical African, Sudanian plant geographical region and the Saharo-Arabian region.
The Sudanian element-characterized by relatively high rainfall-dominates the western mountains and parts of the highland plains. The Saharo-Arabian element dominates in the coastal plains, eastern mountain, and the eastern and northern desert plains.
A high percentage of Yemen plants belong to tropical African plants of Sudanian regions. Among the Sudanian element species, the following may be mentioned: Ficus spp. Many of the Saharo-Arabian species are endemic to the extensive sandy coastal plain the Tihamah. Among the fauna, the Arabian leopardwhich would inhabit the mountains, is considered rare here.
Yemen is a republic with a bicameral legislature. Under the constitution, an elected President, an elected seat Assembly of Representativesand an appointed member Shura Council share power. The President is the head of stateand the Prime Minister is the head of government. In Sana'a, a Supreme Political Council not recognized internationally forms the government. The constitution provides that the president be elected by popular vote from at least two candidates endorsed by at least 15 members of the Parliament.
The prime minister, in turn, is appointed by the president and must be approved by two-thirds of the Parliament. The presidential term of office is seven years, and the parliamentary term of elected office is six years. Suffrage is universal for people age 18 and older, but only Muslims may hold elected office.
President Ali Abdullah Saleh became the first elected President in reunified Yemen in though he had been President of unified Yemen since and president of North Yemen since He was re-elected to office in September Saleh's victory was marked by an election that international observers judged was "partly free," though the election was accompanied by violence, violations of press freedoms, and allegations of fraud.
Saleh remained almost uncontested in his seat of power untilwhen local frustration at his refusal to hold another round of elections, as combined with the impact of the Arab Spring, resulted in mass protests. The constitution calls for an independent judiciary. The former northern and southern legal codes have been unified. The legal system includes separate commercial courts and a Supreme Court based in Sana'a.
Sharia is the main source of laws, with many court cases being debated according to the religious basis of law and many judges being religious scholars as well as legal authorities. The geography and ruling imams of North Yemen kept the country isolated from foreign influence before The country's relations with Saudi Arabia were defined by the Taif Agreement ofwhich delineated the northernmost part of the border between the two kingdoms and set the framework for commercial and other intercourse.
The Taif Agreement has been renewed periodically in year increments, and its validity was reaffirmed in Relations with the British colonial authorities in Aden and the south were usually tense. Following the September revolution, the Yemen Arab Republic became closely allied with and heavily dependent upon Egypt. Saudi Arabia aided the royalists in their attempt to defeat the Republicans and did not recognize the Yemen Arab Republic until At the same time, Saudi Arabia maintained direct contact with Yemeni tribes, which sometimes strained its official relations with the Yemeni Government.
Saudi Arabia remained hostile to any form of political and social reform in Yemen and continued to provide financial support for tribal elites. In FebruaryNorth Yemen joined Iraq, Jordan, and Egypt in forming the Arab Cooperation Council ACCan organization created partly in response to the founding of the Gulf Cooperation Council and intended to foster closer economic cooperation and integration among its members.
Yemen is not a member of the Gulf Cooperation Council mainly for its republican government. Yemen is a member of the United Nations, the Arab Leagueand the Organisation of Islamic Cooperationand also participates in the nonaligned movement. Since the end of the civil war, tangible progress has been made on the diplomatic front in restoring normal relations with Yemen's neighbors.
In the summer ofYemen and Saudi Arabia signed an International Border Treaty settling a year-old dispute over the location of the border between the two countries. Until the signing of the Yemen-Saudi Arabia peace treaty in JulyYemen's northern border was undefined; the Arabian Desert prevented any human habitation there.
Yemen settled its dispute with Eritrea over the Hanish Islands in The Saudi - Yemen barrier was constructed by Saudi Arabia against an influx of illegal immigrants and against the smuggling of drugs and weapons. The government and its security forces, often considered to suffer from rampant corruption, have been responsible for torture, inhumane treatment, and extrajudicial executions. There are arbitrary arrests of citizens, especially in the south, as well as arbitrary searches of homes.
Prolonged pretrial detention is a serious problem, and judicial corruption, inefficiency, and executive interference undermine due process.
Freedom of speech, the press, and religion are all restricted. Since the start of the Shia insurgency, many people accused of supporting al-Houthi have been arrested and held without charge or trial. According to the U. State Department International Religious Freedom Report"Some Zaydis reported harassment and discrimination by the government because they were suspected of sympathizing with the al-Houthis.
However, it appears the Government's actions against the group were probably politically, not religiously, motivated. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants reported several violations of refugee and asylum seekers' rights in the organization's World Refugee Survey.
Yemeni authorities reportedly deported numerous foreigners without giving them access to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugeesdespite the UN's repeated requests. Refugees further reported violence directed against them by Yemeni authorities while living in refugee camps. Yemeni officials reportedly raped and beat camp-based refugees with impunity in Yemen is ranked last of countries in the Global Gender Gap Report.
The onset of puberty interpreted by some to be as low as the age of nine was set as a requirement for marriage instead. The United States Department of State Trafficking in Persons report classified Yemen as a Tier 3 country, meaning that its government does not fully comply with the minimum standards against human trafficking and is not making significant efforts to do so.

Yemen officially abolished slavery inbut it is still being practiced. A major reorganization of the armed forces continues. The unified air forces and air defenses are now under one command. The navy has concentration in Aden. Total armed forces manning numbers aboutactive personnel, including moreover especially conscripts.
The number of military personnel in Yemen is relatively high; in sum, Yemen has the second largest military force on the Arabian Peninsula after Saudi Arabia. Intotal active troops were estimated as follows: army, ,; navy, 7,; and air force, 5, In Septemberthe government announced the reinstatement of compulsory military service.
Yemen's defense budget, which in represented approximately 40 percent of the total government budget, is expected to remain high for the near term, as the military draft takes effect and internal security threats continue to escalate. ByYemen hadactive personnel.
As of the end ofYemen was divided into twenty governorates muhafazat - the latest being Raymah Governorate, which was created during plus one municipality called "Amanat Al-Asemah" the latter containing the constitutional capital, Sana'a. Ina constitutional panel decided to divide the country into six regions-four in the north, two in the south, and capital Sana'a outside of any region-creating a federalist model of governance.
Services are the largest economic sector Principal agricultural commodities produced in the nation include grain, vegetables, fruits, pulsesqatcoffee, cotton, dairy products, fish, livestock sheep, goats, cattle, camelsand poultry. Most Yemenis are employed in agriculture. Cotton and many fruit trees are also grown, with mangoes being the most valuable.
A big problem in Yemen is the cultivation of Khat or qata psychoactive plant that releases a stimulant when chewed, and accounts for up to 40 percent of the water drawn from the Sana'a Basin each year, and that figure is rising.
Some agricultural practices are drying the Sana'a Basin and displaced vital crops, which has resulted in increasing food prices. Rising food prices, in turn, pushed an additional six percent of the country into poverty in alone. Yemen's industrial sector is centred on crude oil production and petroleum refining, food processing, handicrafts, small-scale production of cotton textiles and leather goods, aluminum products, commercial ship repair, cement, and natural gas production.
InYemen had an industrial production growth rate of 4. The labor force was seven million workers in The main export commodities are crude oil, coffee, dried and salted fish, liquefied natural gas. The main imported commodities are machinery and equipment, foodstuffs, livestock, and chemicals. These products were mainly imported from the EU Taxes and other revenues constituted roughly The public debt was Its inflation rate over the same period based on consumer prices was Beginning in the mids, the Soviet Union and China provided large-scale assistance.
In the south, pre-independence economic activity was overwhelmingly concentrated in the port city of Aden. The seaborne transit trade, which the port relied upon, collapsed with the closure of the Suez Canal and Britain's withdrawal from Aden in Since the conclusion of the war, the government made an agreement with the International Monetary Fund IMF to implement a structural adjustment program.
Phase one of the program included major financial and monetary reforms, including floating the currency, reducing the budget deficit, and cutting subsidies. Phase two addresses structural issues, such as civil service reform. A key challenge is severe water scarcityespecially in the Highlands, prompting The Times to write "Yemen could become first nation to run out of water.
Access to water supply sanitation is as low as in some sub-Saharan African countries. Yemen is both the poorest country and the most water-scarce country in the Arab world. Third, the capacity of sector institutions to plan, build, operate and maintain infrastructure remains limited. Last but not least the security situation makes it even more difficult to improve or even maintain existing levels of service.
For example, in Sana'a, the water table was 30 metres 98 feet below surface in the s but had dropped to meters below surface by The groundwater has not been regulated by Yemen's governments. Even before the revolution, Yemen's water situation had been described as increasingly dire by experts who worried that Yemen would be the first country to run out of water.
A large portion of Yemenis are dependent on small-scale subsistence agriculture. Half of agricultural water in Yemen is used to grow khata drug that many Yemenis chew. Due to the Yemeni Civil Warthe situation is increasingly dire.
Bombing has forced many Yemenis to leave their homes for other areas, and so wells in those areas are under increasing pressure. Init was 4. It is the 30th highest in the world. According to MuqaddasiPersians formed the majority of Aden's population in the 10th century.
Yemenite Jews once formed a sizable minority in Yemen with a distinct culture from other Jewish communities in the world. Most of the prominent IndonesiansMalaysiansand Singaporeans of Arab descent are Hadhrami people with origins in southern Yemen in the Hadramawt coastal region.
The Maqil were a collection of Arab Bedouin tribes of Yemeni origin who migrated westwards via Egypt. Several groups of Yemeni Arabs turned south to Mauritaniaand by the end of the 17th century, they dominated the entire country.
They can also be found throughout Morocco and in Algeria as well as in other North African Countries. Yemen is the only country in the Arabian Peninsula that is signatory to two international accords dating back to and governing the protection of refugees. Refugees and asylum seekers living in Yemen were predominantly from Somalia, Iraq 11,Ethiopia 2,and Syria.

In al Mahrah Governorate in the far east and the island of Socotraseveral non-Arabic languages are spoken. Yemen is part of the homeland of the South Semitic languages.
Mehri is the largest South Semitic language spoken in the nation, with more than 70, speakers. The ethnic group itself is called Mahra. Soqotri is another South Semitic language, with speakers on the island of Socotra isolated from the pressures of Arabic on the Yemeni mainland.
According to the census in Yemen, the number of speakers there was 57, Yemen was also home of the Old South Arabian languages. The Razihi language appears to be the only remaining Old South Arabian language. English is the most important foreign language, being widely taught and spoken mostly in the south, a former British colony.
A small Cham -speaking community is found in the capital city of Sana'a, originating from refugees expatriated from Vietnam after the Vietnam War in the s. Shias are primarily Zaydi and also have significant minorities of Ismaili and Twelver Shias. The Sunnis are predominantly in the south and southeast. The Zaidis are predominantly in the north and northwest whilst the Ismailis are in the main centres such as Sana'a and Ma'rib.

Radio broadcasting in Yemen began in the s when it was still divided into the South by the British and the North by the Imami ruling system. However, it drew back afterdue to destroyed infrastructure resulting from the civil war. Television is the most significant media platform in Yemen.
Given the low literacy rate in the country, television is the main source of news for Yemenis. There are six free-to-air channels currently headquartered in Yemen, of which four are state-owned.
The Yemeni film industry is in its early stages; only two Yemeni films have been released as of. The history of Yemeni theatre dates back at least a century, to the early s. Both amateur and professional government-sponsored theatre troupes perform in the country's major urban centres.

The coastal areas of Yemen and Socotra island also provide many opportunities for water sports, such as surfingbodyboardingsailingswimmingand scuba diving.
Socotra island is home to some of the best surfing destinations in the world. Camel jumping is a traditional sport that is becoming increasingly popular among the Zaraniq tribe on the west coast of Yemen in a desert plain by the Red Sea. Camels are placed side to side and victory goes to the competitor who leaps, from a running start, over the most camels.

Surrounded by a fortified wall made of mud and straw, the 16th-century city is one of the oldest examples of urban planning based on the principle of vertical construction. Sana'a became a major Islamic centre in the 7th century, and the mosques, 14 hammams traditional bathhousesand more than 6, houses that survive all date from before the 11th century.
Close to the Red Sea Coast, the historic town of Zabidinscribed inwas Yemen's capital from the 13th to the 15th century, and is an archaeological and historical site.
It played an important role for many centuries because of its university, which was a centre of learning for the whole Arab and Islamic world. Algebra is said to have been invented there in the early 9th century by the little-known scholar Al-Jazari. Mentioned by Marco Polo in the 13th century, this remote and isolated archipelago consists of four islands and two rocky islets delineating the southern limit of the Gulf of Aden.
The site has a rich biodiversity. It is home to bird species, species of coral, species of coastal fish, and species of crab and lobster, as well as a range of Aloes and the Dragon's Blood Tree Dracaena cinnabari. The cultural heritage of Socotra includes the unique Soqotri language.

Health care services are particularly scarce in rural areas. Most childhood deaths are caused by illnesses for which vaccines exist or that are otherwise preventable. Circa Sana'a may be the first capital city in the world to run out of drinking water.
Prior to the current conflict, Yemen's health care system was weak due to its lack of spending in public healthcare. During the mids Yemen decided to take a market-based approach to their healthcare system due to increased liberalization within the country. Yemen's public healthcare system is compiled of four levels: 1 primary health care units 2 district hospitals 3 53 general hospitals 4 two specialist referral hospitals.
However, many of these facilities lack resources and employees due to the small budget spent on public healthcare in Yemen. On the other hand, Yemen's private sector has succeeded, there were private hospitals in and by there were private hospitals. It is dangerous for humanitarian workers to set foot on the ground because they could be easily killed due to the constant fighting by both parties. Inthe UN reported that healthcare facilities had not been given sufficient funds and that healthcare workers were working without salaries since September At the same time, many patients are not able to afford the hospital service fees, even though they are cheap.
Due to the high demand of healthcare services, local volunteers and medical students have been trained to respond to basic needs during emergencies. Since the beginning of the conflict, the people of Yemen have become more susceptible to diseases and long-lasting health problems.
More and more people are dying from treatable diseases because of the weakened healthcare system. According to the UN, since the escalation of the conflict in Marchmore than 7, people have died and about 42, people have been injured.
Children are highly suffering from acute malnutrition. According to the World Health Organization, more than 1. However, from to it decreased by 1.

Yemen then made significant progress, with the rate falling to Subsequently, the ongoing cholera outbreak caused the death toll of children to rise. As ofmore than 20 million Yemeni people are in need of humanitarian assistance, including 9 million children. Malnutrition is one of the leading causes of child mortality. Byabout two million Yemeni children suffered from acute malnutrition, as a result of the civil war consuming their nation's economy.
