It’s been described as the forgotten war. Since 2015, a Saudi-led coalition has been fighting with the Houthis for control of Yemen. In April, for the first time since 2016, the United Nations brokered a truce for two months. The deal includes fuel imports into Houthi-held areas and the return of flights from Sana’a international airport. So far, flights have yet to resume. According to the UN, the war has killed tens of thousands of people and caused the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. 

Joining the discussion:

  • Gerald Feierstein is a former U.S. Ambassador to Yemen &  Senior Vice President with the Middle East Institute.
  • Mohsen Milani is the Executive Director of the Center for Strategic and Diplomatic Studies at the University of South Florida.
  • Hamoud Salhi is the Associate Dean of International Education and a Senior International Officer at California State University – Dominguez Hills.
