‚ÄčThe conflict in Yemen has allowed terrorist organisations like Al-Qaeda and Daesh to establish themselves and spread their message of violence and extremism. They continue to pose a threat to Yemen, the region and beyond. We are working with partners to monitor the threat from these organisations and disrupt any attack planning.
