For more on the Yemen's crisis, CCTV spoke to Peter Bechtold. He's a former director of Near East and North Africa Studies at the US Foreign Service Institute."The Saudi intervention, or the Saudi-led intervention, is going to unify the Yemenis more. Because Saudi Arabia has long interfered in Yemeni affairs, usually by playing one side off against the other. But when you have airstrikes and civilian casualties, as your setup reported, this is more likely to bring the Yemenis together because they are quite nationalistic."
