House Prohibits Deployment of US Troops in Yemen
Local Editor

The US House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved on Saturday two amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act [NDAA] banning the United States from participating in the Saudi war against Yemen.

The Davidson amendment prohibits the United States from carrying out any military action in Yemen prior to its approval. According to the legislation, US military action in Yemen, since it's not targeting al-Qaeda or the Wahhabi Daesh [Arabic acronym for "ISIS" / "ISIL"], is not subject to permission to use force against terrorist organizations given in 2001.

The Nolan amendment prohibits the deployment of US troops in Yemen, and may prevent the US even from air refueling Saudi and UAE warplanes over Yemen. Moreover, the House of Representatives is working to persuade the Senate to approve the same legislation to push President Donald Trump to agree to stay away from Yemen war.

Many politicians in the US believe that the war in Yemen has led to the destruction of the country and the spread of epidemics such as Cholera, as well as strengthening the influence of both al-Qaeda and Daesh, and the US-backed Saudi-led Coalition is still unable to achieve any military victory on the ground.

Saudi Arabia has been leading a destructive military campaign against Yemen since March 2015 to reinstate former president Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi.

The campaign had seriously damaged the country's infrastructure. Local Yemeni sources had put the death toll from the Saudi war at over 12,000, including many women and children.
