About our Houthis news

Latest news on the Houthis, covering their involvement in the Red Sea crisis, the international response, and the ongoing conflict's impact on regional security, global trade, and the humanitarian situation in Yemen.

The Houthis, a Zaidi Shia Islamist political and armed movement, have been engaged in a conflict with the internationally recognised Yemeni government and a Saudi-led coalition since 2014. The group, led by Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, currently controls large parts of northern Yemen, including the capital city of Sanaa. In recent months, the Houthis have escalated their involvement in the Red Sea crisis, launching attacks on commercial vessels and threatening regional stability.

In January 2024, the Houthis faced a significant escalation in the conflict when the United States and the United Kingdom launched a series of airstrikes, codenamed Operation Poseidon Archer, against Houthi targets in Yemen. The strikes came in response to Houthi attacks on ships in the Red Sea, which the group claimed were carried out in support of the Palestinians during the 2023 Israel–Hamas war. The US and UK strikes aimed to degrade the Houthis' ability to threaten maritime security in the region.

The international community has strongly condemned the Houthis' actions in the Red Sea, with the UN Security Council demanding an immediate end to attacks on commercial vessels. In response to the growing threat, a US-led multinational coalition launched Operation Prosperity Guardian to protect shipping in the Bab el-Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Aden. Additionally, the European Union initiated Operation Aspides, a naval mission tasked with ensuring maritime security in the region.

The Red Sea crisis has had far-reaching consequences for global trade, with major shipping companies suspending or rerouting their vessels to avoid the risk of Houthi attacks. This has led to increased transportation costs and supply chain disruptions, affecting businesses and consumers worldwide. The crisis has also exacerbated the already dire humanitarian situation in Yemen, with the Houthis' actions hindering the delivery of essential aid to millions of people in need.

As the conflict continues, international efforts to find a political solution have intensified. Diplomatic initiatives aim to bring the warring parties to the negotiating table and address the underlying causes of the conflict, including political marginalisation, economic grievances, and regional power struggles. However, the Houthis' increasingly aggressive stance and their alleged ties to Iran have complicated these efforts, raising concerns about the spread of Iranian influence in the region.

Our NewsNow feed on the Houthis keeps you informed about the latest developments in this complex and evolving situation, covering military operations, diplomatic efforts, and the humanitarian impact of the conflict. As the international community grapples with the challenges posed by the Houthis and the Red Sea crisis, stay up-to-date with the most recent news and analysis from reliable sources.
