PressTV-Senate votes to stop US aid to Saudi war on Yemen

The US Senate has voted to stop US armed forces from supporting Saudi Arabia in its military aggression against its impoverished southern neighbor, Yemen.

The historic bipartisan vote on Thursday, for the first time, invoked Congress’ war powers to challenge US military involvement abroad despite the Trump administration’s unwavering support for the Saudi regime in its aggression against Yemen. 

The 56-to-41 vote by the Democrats and some Republicans was both a condemnation of the Saudi-led war on Yemen – which has killed thousands of civilians and created a humanitarian crisis – and another rebuke to US President Donald Trump for his all-out support for the Saudi regime and its disgraced de facto leader Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman –known by media as MbS — who allegedly ordered the murder of US-based dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
