  • Saudi Arabia launches airstrikes in Yemen

    Voice of America - 03/25/2015

    Analysts say Saudi Arabia’s move to intervene could escalate the conflict into a regional battle.

    “Iran is already helping the Houthis, and I expect Iran to ramp up support for its Yemen proxy,” said Max Abrahms, a professor of political science at Northeastern University and member at the Council of Foreign Relations.“Yemen is a sectarian tinderbox that will likely explode with international geopolitical repercussions.”

    A sectarian civil war with external intervention will have repercussions, Abrahms said.
