Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Bruce Riedel has described the ongoing Saudi blockade as “an offensive military operation that kills civilians,” a situation that belies administration claims that the Saudi regime is “committed and eager to find a solution to the conflict.”
The coalition that sent the letter to the Biden administration acknowledged that it has taken some “critical first steps toward peace and food security in #Yemen,” including announcing an end to U.S. support for offensive operations in Yemen and relevant arms sales and

with strong pressure on Saudi Arabia to end the blockade, there could be an unprecedented crisis in a country already reeling from the impacts of six years of war.

A member of the Supreme Political Council of #Yemen says after Saudi Arabia's heavy defeat in its war on the impoverished state, a possible military intervention by countries such as #Turkey is not a wise move, warning that the fate awaiting Ankara will

Yet the US maintains a close military
