The Houthi uprising has led Saudi Arabia massing troops and equipment on Wednesday for an offensive to dislodge the mainly Shia rebels. The rebels are supported by Iran who champions the Shia cause in the entire region.

On Wednesday, Saudi Arabia announced a launch of a military operation against the Houthis, who currently control large parts of Yemen, including the capital Sanaa. Houthi militants have reportedly captured large stocks of weaponry from Yemen military sites.
Bahrain, Qatar and Egypt and other states are also participating in the Saudi-led coalition. The Gulf nations claim the campaign is a response to a request by Yemen’s ousted President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.
Also on Wednesday, US President Barack Obama authorized US logistical and intelligence support for the military operations in Yemen. Additionally, the United States is establishing a Joint Planning Cell with Saudi Arabia to coordinate efforts.
The Houthi militants forced President Hadi and his government to resign in late January. Hadi was under house arrest in Sanaa before he fled to Aden in February, quickly disavowing his resignation.
