Le conflit au Yémen comme matrice du terrorisme islamique

Si la montée en puissance de Daech depuis 2011 semblait corrélée d'un affaiblissement général d'Al-Qaïda, la branche yéménite du groupe terroriste, AQPA (Al-Qaïda dans la Péninsule Arabique) a su s'installer durablement dans le pays. Actuellement au Yémen, les djihadistes de Daech se comptent par centaines, ceux d'AQPA par milliers. David RIGOULET-ROZE, chercheur à l'IFAS (Institut Français d'Analyse Stratégique) et rédacteur en chef de la revue "Orients stratégiques" revient sur le développement d'Al-Qaïda au Yémen et décrypte les enjeux de contre-terrorisme dans la région.
