Yemen’s Houthis Extend Ceasefire with Saudi-Led Coalition

HeadlineJun 03, 2022

Yemen’s Houthi rebels have agreed to extend a ceasefire with the Saudi-led coalition by an additional two months. The warring parties first agreed to a truce during the holy month of Ramadan in April.

This week, 48 U.S. congressmembers introduced a War Powers Resolution calling on the Biden administration to end U.S. military support and arms sales to the Saudi-led coalition. In a statement, Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal wrote, “There are more than 16 million Yemenis living on the brink of starvation and more than two million children suffering from acute malnutrition — and the American people’s tax dollars are helping finance that suffering.”
