Since then, the Iranian-backed Houthis have been dislodged from most of the south, but remain in control of Sanaa and much of the north.

The Houthis, who control Sanaa and northern Yemen, are fighting Yemen's internationally recognised government, which is backed by the Saudi-led military alliance in a war which has killed at least 10,000 people and unleashed a humanitarian disaster.

The war between the Saudi-backed government and the rebels, allied with Iran, has killed more than 8,300 Yemenis since 2015 and pushed the country to the brink of starvation.

The UN has said the Saudi coalition was likely responsible for a July attack on the southwestern Taez province killed 20 people, including children.
