Event description

Description

President Abd Rabo Mansour Hadi is politically paralysed. He wields no real influence and his main fighting force has been the Southern Separatists (who are now revolting against him) and the more 'Jihadist' elements who the US are perturbed by.

The only other alternative is the Islah (Muslim Brotherhood) but they have been severely weakened and the Arab coalition do not want to turn to them. Saudi Arabia also does not have the finances to buy off the tribes as it used to and Saleh's death shows the tribes are not necessarily against the new political dynamics that sees Houthi as sovereign of the North.

In short, without the Separatists, it is hard to imagine what fighting force Hadi has.

Negotiations between UAE and Saudi are taking place over the recent fighting in Aden. UAE is playing on Saudi Arabia's desire to end the war while saving face. UAE are arguing that a divided Yemen is the best solution for Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman and gives him the ability to pay more attention to shoring things up at home.

As Mohamed Bin Salman mulls over this proposition, join our webinar with Editor-in-Chief Sami Hamdi as he discusses the implications of recent events in Aden on the wider conflict in Yemen. The webinar will be followed by a live Q&A.
