  4. Ahmed Awad:

    We need the U.S. government to continue to lend its political and logistical support to the legitimate government and the Arab coalition, this will, in turn, help reinstating the government institutions, which will curb AQAP operations and lead to its demise. The conflict, according to the U.N., has claimed the lives of more than 10,000 people, displaced millions and gutted the infrastructure of the country, already considered the poorest in the Middle East before the war began. Over the past few months, Yemen has been devastated not only by bombs and bullets, but has experienced a severe return of the once almost extinct – and under normal circumstances highly treatable – cholera. American involvement in the fight is increasing. Although the U.S. was forced to shutter Yemen Embassy in Washington D.C. in Yemen in 2015 and pull out special operations forces pursuing AQAP operatives as the conflict spiraled, the American military isincreasinglyembroiled in the embattled nation. U.S. troops have returned in small numbers, and the Trump administration has vastly accelerated the number of operations in the region in recent months. America’s engagement inside Yemen and its backing of The Saudi-led coalition, which supports Mubarak and the rest of the internationally-recognized government, is steeped in controversy. Government forces, Houthi rebels and Al-Qaeda factions control different parts of war-torn Yemen Much of the international media and human rights bodies have accused the U.S. of propping up a bloody Saudi-initiated war, a criticism Mubarak sharply denies. Some of the criticism may reflect a misunderstanding of the history and nature of the conflict. While many have framed the war as a Sunni-Shia sectarian conflict, Mubarak insists the two groups of Muslims, Shia and Sunni, have co-existed in Yemen for a very long time.
