Yemen’s brutal civil war has been depicted as a part of the broader Saudi-Iranian conflict. But as Yemen expert Asher Orkaby explains, the conflict has much more to do with Yemen’s historic intranational disputes and Saudi Arabia’s concerns about the security of its southern border than with Iranian influence. By framing the conflict in the context of Iran, however, Saudi Arabia can dampen closer scrutiny of its bombing tactics, which have led to the collapse of Yemen’s economy and brought seven million people to the brink of starvation.

In this article, you will learn

  • What historic causes underlie the Yemeni conflict,
  • How Saudi Arabia has camouflaged its true motivations for intervening in Yemen and
