The Red Sea Crisis

Updated: Apr 4

No doubt by now you have heard the news! British and American ships and planes have attacked Houthi positions in Yemen. But who exactly are the Houthi? And why have the USA and UK attacked them?

The Houthi are fighting a long civi-war in Yemen against the internationally recognised government.

They control the west of the country and as such the western seaboard which runs along the Red Sea.

The Red Sea is a crucial shipping route, through which 20% of the world's shipping flows.

As such it is extremely important to keep this route open and as such an international coalition has been assembled to provide protection for ships transversing this area.

Listen to the Battleplan podcast and find out more about why Western militaries have been sent into action.
