House Passes Amendment That Would End US Support for Yemen War

On Thursday, the House passed an amendment for its version of the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would end all US support for the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen. The measure passed by a slim margin in a vote of 219 to 207.

The amendment, sponsored by Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), would terminate “US military logistical support, and the transfer of spare parts to Saudi warplanes conducting aerial strikes against the Houthis in Yemen and permanently ends intelligence sharing that enables offensive strikes and any US effort to command, coordinate, participate in the movement of, or accompany Saudi or United Arab Emirates-led coalition forces in the war in Yemen.”

For the amendment to become law, it would have to be on the final version of the NDAA, which will be negotiated between the House and Senate in conference committee.
