Six years after the successful protests of the so-called '"Arab Spring'" leading to the resignation of former President Ali Abdallah Saleh, Yemen is facing a war on multiple fronts. The Arab world''s poorest country is suffering from a political situation that has already been fragile and is now on the verge of total state collapse. The violence has triggered a humanitarian disaster with at least three million Yemenis being internally displaced and a famine threatening the country. An end of the conflict is not yet in sight. The international community seems to follow their own interests instead of trying to conclude a ceasefire and peace agreement.
