The Yemen crisis is an ongoing conflict in Yemen that began in 2015 when Houthi seized control of the capital city of Sana'a and ousted the internationally recognized government. This conflict escalated into a full-scale civil war, with a coalition of Arab countries led by Saudi Arabia intervening in support of the government and against the Houthis. The crisis has led to a humanitarian disaster, with millions of people facing starvation and disease. External factors have played a significant role in the Yemen crisis. Iran has been accused of supporting the Houthi rebels, including weapons and training. Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states have intervened in the conflict in support of the government, with the United States and other Western countries providing logistical and intelligence support to the coalition. The crisis has also had regional and international implications, with the conflict being seen as a proxy war between Saudi Arabia and Iran and raising concerns about the stability of the Gulf region. The primary purpose of this study is to explain the overview of the role of external factors involved in the Yemen crisis. Secondary data sources are used to describe and analyze the research, and the analysis are made under the qualitative content analysis method.
