This article explores the key players in the war and the events in the fight in Yemen that shaped this crisis, while discussing the humanitarian situation. Parties are divided into two groups: one is the state-centric group acting on behalf of the Yemeni government, and the other is the anti-state group acting against the Yemeni government’s interest. Moreover, this article also attempts to investigate the legality of the use of force by all parties to this conflict, to be able to conclude who is using legitimate force and who is using illegitimate force in Yemen, in accordance with international law. Then, this article analyzes the conduct of both parties using force to comprehend the violations of international humanitarian and human rights laws in the Yemeni conflict.
