In 2015, a coalition led by Saudi Arabia launched a military intervention in Yemen to restore the government of President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi following the Houthi takeover of Sanaa in late 2014. ACLED estimates that more than 150,000 people have died as a direct result of the violence as of mid-2022, including over 15,000 civilians killed in targeted attacks.
Yemen Truce Monitor
From April to October 2022, a truce mediated by the United Nations between the Houthis and the internationally recognized government was in place in Yemen. To help assess the impact of the agreement, ACLED created the Yemen Truce Monitor, an interactive tool to support analysis of conflict trends and reported violations during the truce period.
