US Senate Votes to End Support for Saudi-led War Coalition on Yemen

2019/02/14 | 11:44

(Iraq Now News)- The House on Wednesday voted to end U.S.

support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen‘s civil war, a rebuke of Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman‘s alleged role in the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The chamber voted 248-177, with 18 Republicans siding with the Democratic majority.

The Senate approved a matching resolution in December with a vote of 56-41, but that was in the last Congress.

The Republican-controlled chamber must vote again in order to force the Trump administration to end its military support of the Saudi coalition.
