National Coalition Demands End to Military Support of War on Yemen

In an effort to strengthen the recently announced temporary truce and further incentivize Saudi Arabia to stay at the negotiation table, the groups urged Congress “to cosponsor and publicly support Representatives Jayapal, DeFazio, Schiff, Mace and Senator Sanders War Powers Resolution to end U.S. military participation in the Saudi-led coalition’s war on Yemen.”

Seeking Peace in Yemen

There is a glimmer of hope in the effort to end the war in Yemen. On April 1, a two-month Ramadan truce took effect. While the ceasefire has not entirely held, several fuel ships have finally been allowed into Yemen, and there are discussions of flights taking off from Sanaa airport for the first time in years.
