Cause for hope in Yemen?

Adam Baron is right to be skeptical about the recent gains made by the Yemeni security forces in Abyan province.

Given that it was only two weeks ago that the group was able to launch a coordinated attack on the Ministry of Defense in the heart of Sana’a, Baron’s concern is justified.
