Despite Saudi Arabia’s aerial bombing campaign, the conflict has been locked in a military stalemate for years. The capital, Sanaa, remains in Houthi hands, as do most of the country’s population centers. Informal ceasefire talks have been underway between Riyadh and the Houthis since late last year, and both sides did pause fighting at several points since.

The peace, however, never lasted, and in a speech before the UN last week, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz said he wouldn not abandon Yemen until its people were free from “Iranian hegemony.”
