Jan. 20: Clashes between Huthi and Salafimilitias killed at least 22 people in 'Amran Governorate, north of Sana'a. A government-brokered cease-fire on January 11 sought to resolve the conflict between the two groups. [Al Arabiya, 1/20]

Jan. 25: The National Dialogue concluded after ten months with agreements to extend President 'Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi's term for another year, and to form a constitutional committee and a regional committee to oversee a process to divide the country into semiautonomous regions. The dialogue proposed dividing the country into six regions. Southerners had hoped for a north-south division and expressed concern that the agreement would divide their interests as a regional bloc. [Al Arabiya, 1/25]

Jan. 31: Suspected al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) militants killed 17 Yemeni security personnel in two separate attacks in Hadramawt and Bayda' governorates. In Hadrawmawt, militants ambushed soldiers and killed 15 soldiers in a gun battle. In Bayda', insurgents attacked a police patrol leaving two dead. [NYT, 2/1]

Feb. 3: Three attacks over a four day period targeted Europeans in Sana'a. On January 31, a German citizen was kidnapped but later released unharmed. On February 3, a British oil company employee was captured, and in a separate incident, a car bomb and a mortar round exploded between the French Embassy and former president 'Ali 'Abdullah Salih's home in Sana'a. No one claimed responsibility for the attacks, no one was injured, and it was unclear what the intended target had been. [NYT, 2/4, Daily Star, 2/3]

The rebels hoped to control more territory before a federal system could be established throughout the entire country. [Daily Star, 2/4, 2/6]

Feb. 10: The committee formed by President Hadi to restructure the nation into a federal system approved a plan that would turn Yemen into a six-region federation. Southern leaders rejected the agreement, claiming it did not give the two southern regions an equal standing with the rest of the country. [BBC, 2/10]

Feb. 13: AQAP militants attacked Sana'a's main prison in an assault that killed at least 11. Twenty-nine inmates, including 19 individuals jailed for terrorism-related offenses, escaped the prison during the attack, including one of the organization's prominent bomb-makers. [Reuters, 2/14]

Feb. 18: Unidentified gunmen killed nine Yemeni soldiers and kidnapped an additional 14 in a firefight in the city of Dalih, a stronghold for separatists demanding a return to socialist rule in southern Yemen. The fate of the hostages was unknown. …
