Yemen’s civil war, which began in 2011, has since 2015 become a proxy conflict between Iran—which supports the Houthi rebels—on the one hand and Saudi Arabia and a few of its allies—which support the pre-2011 regime—on the other. By arming the Houthis with advanced missiles and drones, training them in their use, and developing tactics that can make the most of these weapons, Tehran has turned them into a formidable threat to Riyadh. Israel should pay attention, writes Uzi Rubin:
In Yemen, Iran Is Testing Weapons and Tactics for Future Use against Israel
The Knesset Has Resumed Its Business, but Both Sides Have Broken Unwritten Rules

This development has fractured Gantz’s Blue and White party into its constituent factions. Meanwhile, the resignation of Yuli Edelstein as interim Knesset speaker—a position meant to be occupied for just a few hours, but which he has held for nearly a year—has allowed the Knesset to resume business as usual.
