The U.s. Senate last Thursday voted for the cessation of American military aid to the war in Yemen. That’s what happened with 56 votes for and 41 against. Also, a number of Republicans endorsed the proposal so well.
They do this in Saudi Arabia to punish, that in Yemen since 2015 is fighting against the Houthi rebels and the support of the West. But since the murder of the journalist Khashoggi is that support is hotly contested.
Still, the mood is mostly symbolic, because the U.s. president has already announced his veto to use. It is also uncertain whether there is a majority in the House of Representatives can be found for the cessation of military aid.
The vote comes on top of a resolution that the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman is held responsible for the murder of Khashoggi.
