A Saudi-led coalition is currently battling Shia Houthi rebels allegedly backed by Iran in Yemen. On 7 January, Iran accused the Saudi coalition of launching a rocket attack on its embassy in Sanaa.

In December 2015, the Saudi coalition was accused of bombing an MSF clinic in south-western Yemen, injuring nine people.
