Operation Decisive Storm: Objectives and Hurdles

Source: Al Jazeera Center for Studies


Operation Decisive Storm is likely to change the political and military dynamics in the Middle East for years to come. The speed at which a ten-country coalition was formed and mobilized is unprecedented in the Arab World. The coalition sent a clear message to many actors regionally and globally, especially those who have doubted Arab unity and decisiveness, that the Arab World is willing and able to control its own destiny, protect its own interests, and prevent the collapse of another Arab state. Operation Decisive Storm put an end to many of these speculations and ushered in a new vision for unity, paving the way for the Arab league to entertain the establishment of a joint Arab Force to deter any future existential threat that may face the region.

This report discusses the political objectives and military obstacles facing the coalition forces in Yemen. The report focuses on the long-term strategies of the Saudi led coalition and its partners in Yemen and beyond.
