 Bab el Mandeb - Wikipédia
Bab el Mandeb — littéralement la « porte des pleurs » en arabe — est le détroit séparant la péninsule arabique et l'Afrique et qui relie la Mer Rouge au golfe d'Aden, dans l'océan Indien.
L'île de Perim divise le détroit en deux canaux : le canal oriental, connu sous le nom de Bab Iskender (« le canal d'Alexandre ») mesure 3 km de large pour une profondeur maximale de 30 m, tandis que le canal occidental, ou Dact el Mayun, est large de 25 km et profond de 310 m.
Les enjeux prenant leur source dans le détroit du Bab El Mandeb sont d'abord d'ordre financier puisqu'il s'agit de l'une des principales routes du pétrole dans le monde.

 Horn of Africa Regional Country Analysis Brief
Bab el-Mandeb is a narrow waterway situated between Eritrea, Djibouti and Yemen that connects the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea.
The Bab el-Mandeb could be bypassed (for northbound oil traffic) by utilizing the East-West oil pipeline, which traverses Saudi Arabia and has a capacity of about 4.8 million bbl/d.
In addition, closure of the Bab el-Mandeb would effectively block non-oil shipping from using the Suez Canal, except for limited trade within the Red Sea region.

 Perim - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Perim (Arabic: بريم‎ [Barīm]) is a volcanic island strategically located in the Strait of Mandeb at the southern entrance into the Red Sea off the southwestern coast of Yemen, at 12.6566667° N 43.415° E.
The island has a natural harbour on its southwestern coast, but there is only scarce vegetation, and the absence of fresh water on the island has always been one of the major difficulties impeding permanent settlement.
Sometimes in the geological past its eruptions have blocked the Bab el Mandeb and thus the Red Sea evaporated to an empty hot dry salt-floored sink.

They conclude that the mtDNA clade diversity in Arabian baboons is too great to have gotten there within the past 20,000 years, so the dispersal must have been earlier.
Then there is a question of whether the dispersal came over the Strait of Bab el Mandab or the Sinai:
Kummer (1995) hypothesized that a northerly route of colonization, via Sinai, was more likely than a southerly route across the Red Sea, via the straits of Bab el Mandeb.
