Iran-Backed Fighters Launch More Attacks In Yemen As U.S. Looks To Cut Ties

A detachment of Saudi-backed Yemeni soldiers—armed with AK-47s, rocket-propelled grenades and a single tank—keep watch from a rock outcropping, scanning the vast expanse of desert below them for signs of activity by Iranian-backed Houthi fighters. “They’re out there,” said Yemeni Maj. Gen. Ameen Alwaili. “They’re pushing in from three sides.” This small outpost is on the front lines of a continuing battle between the Houthi rebels and Yemen’s U.N.-recognized government, which is trying to hold on to Marib, its last stronghold in the north of the country and site of a coveted oil refinery.
