US Senate votes to end support of Saudi-led Yemen war

Amman, The republican-led US Senate, Wednesday, voted to end Washuington’s support for the Saudi -led coalition war in Yemen, US official sources said.

Lawmakers in the Republican-controlled chamber approved a historic curtailment of presidential war powers that directs Trump “to remove United States Armed Forces from hostilities in or affecting the Republic of Yemen” within 30 days.

The Senate vote was 54 to 46, with seven Republicans defying the president and aligning with Democrats.

The Democrat-led House of Representatives should approve the resolution and pass it to the White House, which said that Donald Trump has threatened to issue the first veto of his tenure.
