Almost three years into the war, the Saudi-led coalition has fallen short of the objectives in the face of strong resistance by Ansarullah and its allied forces.

Some 13,600 Yemenis have died since the onset of the Saudi war, which has also taken a heavy toll on Yemen’s infrastructure and pushed the impoverished country to the edge of famine.
