Yemen has been locked in a conflict between government forces, led by President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, based in Aden, and the Houthi movement. A Saudi-led coalition has been conducting strikes against the Houthis at Hadi's request since March 2015. The conflict has resulted in a massive humanitarian crisis in the country.
