The impact of the ongoing war on Yemen's people has now begun to appear in the form of extremely long lines outside of gas stations. Sana'a, which has around 3m people, has suffered from fuel shortages for several months out of the past year. People not only use fuel for cars, but also for home generators since the country has no stable electricity and electricity cuts can last for more than 12 hours a day. As such, people depend mainly on personal generators to lighten the dark nights. Though expensive, the people of Yemeni have no other options.

Fighters of the Belobeid tribe proudly tout their guns and artillery in the southern Yemeni desert of Shabwah, an Al-Qaeda haven. Just as the Saudi-led coalition began bombing Houthis and loyalists to ousted president Ali Abdullah Saleh, hundreds of fighters from the Belobeid tribe began joining forces in the desert of the southern province to begin organizing a coordinated resistance against the Houthis.

In the past few months, the ongoing expansion of northern Yemen's Houthi rebels has prompted many tribes in the restive south to pull together. One man interviewed says they are fighting against both the Houthis and "terrorism" as such.

Throughout history, we have preserved the security of our area [UNINTELLIGIBLE] al-Soda. We have preserved our security and safety against any kind of aggression. What is happening in Sanaa is their own conflict, we are not concerned with it in any manner here in the south. We have proved our presence.

Citizens in the province of Ibb, currently under Houthi control, crowd in front of a shop, desperate to buy wheat.

Video shows hundreds of citizens of the Odein district in central Ibb, queuing in front of a privately owned shop trying to buy sacks of wheat to make bread. Meanwhile Houthi militants are trying to keep the crowd in order by watching over them from the top of a truck.

A man with a bloodied face says he was beaten by Houthi militiamen in a crowd of people trying to buy wheat. The militiamen were guarding a grain shop in the city of Ibb that been mobbed by people desperate to buy wheat in the face of short supplies and soaring prices.

A sack of wheat used to cost 5000 Yemeni Rials ($23), but now, if available, one sack costs around 7500 Rials ($35).

The ongoing conflict is contributing to the shortage of all basic necessities. Yemeni citizens worried about where the next meal will come from, are stockpiling supplies, driving up the prices. Local sources say that the Houthis are not allowing the wheat reserves to be distributed for fear that the trucks will be targeted by coalition air strikes.
