Yemen’s civil war

International efforts to stop the crisis of Yemen’s civil war have until recently found little success. Since 2015, mainstream news and political discussion across the United States and Europe have revolved around Brexit and then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, and Russia. In that time, an estimated 56,000 civilians have been killed, excluding those who’ve died from illness or starvation, according to the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED).
