In spite of using all means at its disposal, as of the beginning of 2010, the GoY has been unable to subdue the Huthi movement. Along with southern discontent and al-Qaida-inspired terrorism, the Huthi conflict presents an enduring threat to the regime of President 'Ali 'Abdullah Saleh and the stability of Yemen. As Huthi-GoY warfare began again in the fall of 2009, Saudi Arabia intervened as well, bringing a major U.S. ally into a regionalized conflict. The recent ceasefire of February 2010 by no means signals an end to conflict, as several such ceasefires have proven short-lived since 2004. The Huthi movement is based on the family of the same name, which is native to the Sa'da governorate. The Huthi family is part of the Zaydi branch of Islam, theologically situated between Sunnism and Shi'ism. Armed conflict commenced in the summer of 2004, after Huthi supporters started chanting anti-U.S. and anti-Israel slogans in the capital, San'a. Since then, the separate phases of warfare have become continuous conflict with short lulls. In spite of the full force of the GoY military and regional states' attempts at mediation, fighting continues in the north. Clashes have occurred primarily in the Sa'da governorate but have recently been migrating southward. The Huthi-GoY conflict pits a conventional military using heavy weapons against an unconventional opponent made up of small groups of temporary fighters. The costs to the north of the country have been significant. Casualty estimates range from hundreds to more than 20,000. Estimates of displaced persons reach up to 150,000 people throughout the country, and an estimated 3,000 people have been arrested for supporting the Huthis. At the same time, a news blackout obscures the ongoing destruction in the conflict zone.Regime and Periphery in Northern Yemen: The Huthi Phenomenon科技报告engSalmoni, Barak A;Loidolt, Bryce;Wells, Madeleine;ADA520460;XDDIAADA520460 ADReport
