Al Bayda, though mostly controlled by Houthis and Yemen’s Sana’a based Popular Committee, has recently seen an increase of Al Qaeda and ISIS led aussaults against the Yemenite forces. Images of previous attacks indicate that especially ISIS uses a widespread underground network for it’s operations in the region.

While the Houthis together with the Yemenite military face off against the Saudi led coalition along Yemen’s north-western border to Saudi Arabia, an reportedly lost the Republican Palace in Yemen’s southern province Taiz to the coalition, the perpetual attacks in the Al Bayda Governorate in central Yemen also threaten the south-eastern borders of the Popular Committee’s territory.
