Between a rock and a hard place: safe from war, Yemenis struggle

Under a scorching sun, refugees who fled Yemen’s war struggle on in a camp on Djibouti’s rocky shores, a year after Saudi-backed air strikes began devastating their homeland. Over 2,000 Yemenis have made the Markazi camp their home, fleeing the Arabian Peninsula to Djibouti across the narrow Bab al-Mandeb straits — the “Gate of Tears” in Arabic — the key shipping channel of the Gulf of Aden. Djibouti, a tiny nation of over 800,000 people, is a haven for Yemeni refugees fleeing the air strikes and battles against Huthi rebels that has left Yemen in ruins, but it offers little more than safety from the bombs.
