Abstract
The growing tensions of the recent years in the Middle East and North Africa are accompanied by an unprecedented level of open military intervention of global and regional actors - as part of temporary international coalitions of different formats - in the internal conflicts that erupted in a number of countries of the region. This article discusses the parameters of African participation in Saudi Arabia-led military operations in Yemen. It aims at explaining the reasons that prompted Riyadh to seek partners for a coalition among the African states and the motives of the latter.
