Yemen's ambassador to Lebanon reflected on the crisis gripping his country and evoked a trope that has become synonymous with the George W. Bush administration's war against terror.Since President Abed Rabbou Mansour Hadi fled Houthi captivity in Yemen's capital Sanaa for his southern stronghold of Aden in February, warring Yemeni factions have descended into armed conflict.Opposed by both the Houthis and the Hadi government is Al-Qaeda's Yemen branch, which is said to be the jihadi group's best-resourced and organized. Dailmi, who was appointed to his post two years ago, fears the group might be strengthened by the crisis. The crisis in Yemen is also seen in the context of a regional power struggle between Iran and Saudi Arabia, the overtones of which have been felt in Lebanon in a war of words between politicians and groups at far ends of the political spectrum.But from Dailmi's perspective it was difficult to analyze fallout from the Yemen war elsewhere.
