US House votes to pull support for Arab coalition in Yemen

US House votes to pull support for Arab coalition in Yemen

The bill, endorsed by 248 out of 425 representatives, marks the first time Congress seeks to block a President's unchecked military powers.

Moroccan government officials said Thursday Feb. 7, 2019 that Morocco has stopped taking part in military action with the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen's war, and has recalled its ambassador to Saudi Arabia. The Senate is also expected to vote on the resolution within 30 days.

Since 2015, the administration says, the US has provided support to the coalition, including intelligence and, until recently, aerial refueling, but it has not had forces involved in "hostilities".

Trump has yet to veto any measures from Congress.

Democrats and Republicans reintroduced the war powers resolution two weeks ago as a way to send a strong message to Riyadh about the humanitarian disaster in Yemen and condemn the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. It also said the measure would harm relationships in the region and hurt the US ability to prevent the spread of violent extremism. A parallel resolution was passed by the Senate late previous year in a 56-to-41 vote. The analyst said he feared that "it will weaken efforts to get the Houthis to the negotiating table in the UN-led peace process, and war may get worse because Saudi Arabia would then have no U.S. constraints on its air campaign".

The Senate passed the resolution in December, but the Republican-controlled House blocked it.

The removal order is created to force the executive branch of the United States government to respect the 1973 War Powers Act, which deprives the president of the ability to commit USA forces to potential hostilities without legislative approval.
