Yemen went through a large number of tough events in 2021, especially as the Iran-backed Houthi militia tried to expand its control in the Arab country.
The militia is being abetted by the branch of the Muslim Brotherhood in Yemen.
The Brotherhood helped the Houthis threaten Yemen’s security and stability and capture more Yemeni territories.
In this, the Brotherhood encouraged the militia to implement the scheme of Iran’s mullahs of exporting Iran’s Islamic Revolution to Yemen.
The fact is that the Brotherhood helped the Houthis turn Yemen into an Iranian province.
Nonetheless, the Yemeni army which gets support from Yemeni tribes and the Saudi Arabia-led coalition works to prevent the Houthis and the Brotherhood from implementing their plan to the full.
Meanwhile, ordinary Yemenis express anger at the crimes of these terrorist organizations and their control over their country.
They do this by staging protests in most Yemeni provinces where they reject corruption in Yemeni institutions and deteriorating economic and living conditions.
Yemenis also denounce the collapse of the local currency.
Year of bombings
The year 2021 can be called one of bombings and terrorist attacks in Yemen.
The current capital, Aden, witnessed three explosions at varying intervals in which Houthi elements participated.
The first of these bombings took place in early January 2021, when mortar explosions rocked Aden Airport exactly when the plane of the new Yemeni government touched down.
This bombing left a large human toll behind.
The second terrorist attack took place on October 10, when a car bomb targeted the convoy of Aden Governor, Ahmed Hamid Lamlas who was in the company of Minister of Agriculture, Salem al-Saqtri.
This attack also left a human toll behind.
