The Houthis are a rebel group based in Yemen, primarily from the country’s mountainous north-west region.

They take their name from their founder, Hussein Al-Houthi. The group gained prominence by seizing power in Yemen’s capital, Sana’a, in 2014.

Since then, they have been involved in a catastrophic civil war in Yemen, causing significant humanitarian suffering.

Despite facing airstrikes and international pressure, the Houthis remain a formidable force and continue to pose a threat to regional stability, particularly in the Red Sea area.
