The Houthis frequently conduct incursions inside Saudi Arabia, targeting army barracks and military personnel. Saudi Arabia entered the Yemen civil war to reinstate President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi who was forced out of the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, in 2015 after the Houthis took control of government institutions.
