Congress Declares US Military Support of Saudi Arabia in Yemen War Unauthorized

The resolution does not address whether USA support for the Saudi-led coalition in the conflict triggers the 1973 War Powers Resolution, which lawmakers are split over. "There are many sources of supply to Yemen, even during the past week or so". The Houthis are said to be allied with Iran, though how much is in dispute.

The top United Nations aid official in Yemen called on the Saudi-led coalition on Tuesday to open all Yemen's sea ports urgently, saying it risked damaging the fight against cholera and hunger, with 7 million already in "famine-like conditions". The humanitarian situation in the war-ravaged Yemen is now one of the deadliest in the world as starvation and lack of medical supplies leave millions at risk - the Saudi blockade of Yemen has added to the country's woes.

Humanitarian agencies had been successful in preventing starvation and tackling a cholera outbreak that has sickened more than 900,000 people in six months and killed over 2,200.

Saudi Arabia announced Monday that the Saudi-led coalition fighting Shiite rebels in Yemen will begin reopening airports and seaports in the Arab world's poorest country, days after closing them over a rebel ballistic missile attack on Riyadh. The Saudi closure had drawn worldwide condemnation and fears of a worsening humanitarian disaster in Yemen.

The bank, incidentally, had not installed CCTV cameras in the locker room to protect the customer's privacy. When the customer and a bank officer entered the locker room, they found that 27 lockers had been looted.

Saudi Arabia and its allies intervened in Yemen in March 2015 to push back the Houthi rebels who control the capital Sanaa, and restore the government of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to power.

It says those ports are in Aden, Mocha and Mukalla. The more the blockade tightens, he said, the more the Houthis will develop their abilities to "respond to the assault of the enemy".

Saudi Arabia announced it shut down all ports after a November 4 ballistic missile attack on Riyadh near its global airport by the Shiite rebels known as Houthis.

For its part, Iran long has denied supplying any arms to Yemen, though it has backed the Houthis and highlighted the high civilian casualties from the Saudi-led coalition's campaign of airstrikes.
