Abstract

War in Yemen involves old enemies yet has roots in contemporary global tensions. The focus is on a tribal group, the Houthis and news media have distorted the history and motives of this group. Considerable cultural interaction and background are necessary to have a clear picture of the war and the local as well as international players.
