Struggle and Survival in War-Torn Yemen – The Face of
May 13, 2018
Fighting has been going on in earnest for the past few years in Yemen. It’s left tens of
thousands displaced and struggling. This is yet another part of the word that we, as preppers,
can look to for some idea of what a complete collapse of the government can look like.
The politics of the conflict don’t matter, so I won’t address them. What we should be looking at
is what people are being forced to deal with.
Security checkpoints have been set up by those who have weapons. Those who are not part

city of Aden after being forced by Houthi rebels to flee the capital, Sanaa.
As the threat of the rebels grew, southern forces closed ranks around Hadi to defend the coastal
city and other areas in the south with the support of a military coalition led by Saudi Arabia.
Caught in the long-running conflict, civilians keep bearing the brunt. More than 40,000 displaced
people, who arrived in Aden from other areas of the war-torn country, scrape by in slums and
makeshift desert settlements, abandoned to their own fate.
