The country's armed forces have remained without a Defence Minister for more than three years following the detention of the former minister Mahmoud Subaihi in March 2015 by the Houthi rebels near the southern port city of Aden.
The appointment of new military commanders coincided with the ongoing military operations aimed at liberating the strategic port city of Hodeidah and other areas from the control of the Houthis.
In March 2015, Saudi Arabia led a pan-Arab coalition to intervene militarily and began to pound the Houthi-controlled Sanaa, in response to an official public request from Hadi to protect Yemen and roll back Iran's influence.
The internal military conflict between the Iran-backed Houthis and the Saudi-backed Yemeni government entered its fourth year, aggravating the suffering of the Yemenis and deepening the world's worst humanitarian crisis.
The ongoing fighting between the two warring rivals with daily Saudi-led airstrikes plunged the most impoverished Arab country in the Middle East into more chaos and violence.
Three quarters of the population, or more than 22 million people, urgently require some form of humanitarian help, including 8.4 million people who struggle to find their next meal.
