Is Britain sliding to war in the Middle East?

The RAF has once again taken part in US led attacks on military sites in Yemen from where Houthi fighters have been targeting cargo vessels in the Red Sea – one of the world’s most important commercial shipping routes.This followed similar action on the 11 January.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak insists the UK’s military action amounts to nothing more than self defence; and that its unconnected to the conflict between Israel and Gaza.But is that how it will be seen in Yemen itself and more widely in the Middle East?If the Houthi’s step up their attacks is there a risk of further escalation, perhaps involving the Houthi’s backers Iran, and their rivals Saudi Arabia.

Adrian Goldberg hears from DavidWearing,an expert on UK foreign relations in the Middle East and Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Sussex.
