a proxy war
Yemen will become a battleground for a proxy war between the United States and Saudi Arabia.
What does "proxy" mean in this sentence exactly?
Re: a proxy war
It means that, rather than fight each other, they will each use factions that they support in Yemen to do the fighting for them. Typical superpower behaviour.
