Now in the resulting power vacuum, militants and rebels – including Al Qaeda and IS affiliated groups – are fighting to gain control of territory. In March 2015, Huthi militias forced President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi and his government into exile in Saudi Arabia. The influence of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and IS appears to be growing further; AQAP recently expanded its territorial control in Southern Yemen. Meanwhile, Yemen is facing a dire humanitarian crisis. Eighty percent of the population is in need of some form of humanitarian assistance, and almost half of the population is food insecure, making Yemen’s hunger crisis one of the worst in the world.
