Looks like AQAP (Al-Qaeda in Arabian Peninsula) presently very active in Yemen will be the prime beneficiary of this war. Intervention of Saudi coalition in Yemen backed by US and Britain has helped AQAP grow stronger than ever. As the war drags on, it continues to facilitate AQAP to get more deep-seated inside Yemen, silently establishing its Yemeni emirate and hoisting the same flag as ISIL in Syria and Iraq. The terror group is also trying to win the hearts of people in the marginalized tribal areas of southern Yemen, arranging the availability of food and fuel amidst widespread starvation and misery.
There is plenty of talk among US observers that AQAP is the most dangerous of all AQ groups. Yet the US government prefers to ignore them. Though the Shiite uprising in Yemen is viewed as a threat by Saudi Arabia, the United States and its Western allies consider the destruction of Syria and weakening the Axis of Resistance of greater importance. In the meantime in Yemen, AQAP is successfully moving in ammunition, training new recruits and sending them to the battle front to fight Ansarullah. For one year until April 2016, AQAP controlled Yemen's Hadramout province including the port city of Mukalla, using it as a base. It also formed a council to govern the city.
Another proxy war sponsored by imperialist powers and their lackeys has achieved its goal. Chaos and terror have permanently been established in Yemen to stifle the voices of those demanding sovereignty.
