Event

Fighting between Yemeni government forces and Houthi rebels was reported in the al-Alam area of al-Jawf province on Thursday, August 13, and resulted in multiple casualties. Unconfirmed media sources suggest that at least 15 Houthis were killed and two government soldiers, and that dozens of fighters on both sides were wounded, though these numbers are not yet verified. Government forces also reportedly seized a number of military vehicles and weapons in the clashes.

Further fighting between the two forces in the area is likely in the near term.

Context

Yemen is engaged in a complex and multifaceted conflict, ongoing since 2015 when Houthi rebels entered a civil war with the Yemeni government, which is supported by a Saudi-led coalition. Houthi rebels have launched hundreds of missile, rocket, and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attacks targeting coalition forces and civilian population centers in the west and center of the country, particularly around Marib, throughout the conflict. Although many of these have been intercepted by coalition air defenses, hundreds of civilians have been killed in Houthi missile strikes.

Advice

Due to poor security conditions, many Western governments strongly advise their citizens against all travel to Yemen. Travel to the country should only be considered with proper security protocols in place. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
