The Houthis and Iran’s Red Sea Strategy

Armed with a destructive arsenal, Iran’s proxy on the shores of the Red Sea looks to disrupt world trade and confirm Bible prophecy.

Yemen’s civil war is receiving little attention, but the ongoing battle is sure to have global implications.

Since 2015, Saudi Arabia and its allies have waged war against the Houthis, a Shiite sect closely allied with Iran, who captured Yemen’s capital Sana’a in September 2014. More than five years on, the death toll exceeds 100,000, and Saudi Arabia remains unable to vanquish its far weaker foe.

Meanwhile, 5½ years of near constant conflict have made the Houthis tougher and more experienced. Thanks to recent developments, they are now armed with high-tech weapons. Today the Houthis are entrenched as the gatekeeper of the southern Red Sea—one of the most important trade routes in the world.

The ramifications will be serious, and they will be global.
