The US House of Representatives voted to approve a joint resolution on Thursday to cease US Military aid with respect to the civil war between a Saudi-led coalition and the Houthis in Yemen.
The resolution was approved by a vote of 247-175 and invokes Section 5(c) of the War Powers Resolution. If confirmed into law, it would direct the president to end US involvement in assisting the Saudi-led coalition with "aerial targeting and help to coordinate military and intelligence activities," in the Yemeni civil war.
