In Yemen, the US is in the background, while two of its main allies in the Middle East have gone their separate ways. The US is part of a Saudi Arabia-led coalition in Yemen that is fighting Houthi rebels who are, in turn, backed by Iran. The conflict has taken a devastating toll on the civilians in Yemen.
