In an attempt to force the Houthi fighters to negotiate, the Saudi and United Arab Emirate- led fighters shelled Yemen's main port, Hudaydah, cutting off all food and humanitarian supplies to the entire country. The draconian strategy is to get the besieged population give up the Houthis. Meanwhile, in other parts of Yemen, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) seem to benefit from the chaos.
