As the Houthi’s advance in Yemen, jets from Saudi Arabia have flown in to attack targets. Houthi rebels, part of the Shia community have taken over Yemen’s main airports and security systems. This conflict is said to have occurred as a result of the proxy war between Sunni Arab nations and Shia Iran. After the present leader of Yemen, President Hadi, fled to Saudi Arabia it seems as if a larger Middle East conflict will soon erupt as there seems to be no sign of surrender from either side.
Saudi Arabia has just announced that it will send troops to Yemen.
