GIS Dossier: Yemen’s civil war

Starting as an uprising by a marginalized ethnic group during the Arab Spring in 2011, the conflict in Yemen quickly gained momentum, becoming a civil war and later a proxy war between two of the region’s titans. The conflict is now a key element in the wider struggle for hegemony between Saudi Arabia and Iran. But as GIS analysts have pointed out over the years, it has the potential to spill over into a wider regional conflagration – even one with a nuclear dimension.
