The Yemeni Civil War has seen an exponential increase in violence these last four months, as the formation of the Saudi-led Coalition to restore peace and security to the country has failed miserably and become the primary catalyst behind the wide-spread bloodshed.

Perhaps the biggest surprise in this brutal civil war is the anti-government forces who have remarkably captured several strategic cities from the Gulf-backed Hadi loyalists and the Saudi-led Coalition armies.

With the Houthis, Saleh loyalists, and the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard asserting control over much of western Yemen, the Saudi-led Coalition and Hadi loyalists have launched several offensives near the Yemeni capital of Sanaa and the imperative province of Ta’iz in a futile attempt to restore the exiled government.

While the Saudi-led Coalition concentrates on terrorizing the Yemeni civilians, the Yemeni Army’s Republican Guard and the Houthis are advancing in southern Saudi Arabia, seizing several military posts and villages in the Jizan and Asir provinces.

This will soon escalade completely. I wonder if the Saudis have enough resources and money for both of these wars. They must be under enormous pressure. I don’t think that they’ll win.
