Sanaa rally marks two years of conflict in Yemen

Why has Saudi Arabia sent for troops from Pakistan

Such a shift led to a change in tactics led by al-Houthi, who in 2004, started to challenge the Saleh government on two arguments, first being the pro-US and pro-Saudi stance, and second the government allowing Salafist organization to setup influence zones in north of the country, the region traditionally a Houthi stronghold.

This month, 42 people, mainly Somali refugees, were killed when a boat transporting them out of Yemen came under an air attack off the main Red Sea port of Hodeida.

"Despite the growing mountain of evidence of coalition abuses, the US, UK, and France seem more focused on selling arms to the Saudis than on their possible complicity in coalition war crimes", Whitson said.

Leader of the Shia militias in Yemen, Abdel-Malik Al-Houthi, accused Saudi Arabia of putting pressure on Egypt to join the Arab coalition led by Riyadh, the Anadolu Agency reported yesterday.

But it remains unclear if the Saudi military would be able to achieve more success on the battlefield even with American help.

Last week, Houthi forces again claimed to have launched a ballistic missile in Jizan, targeting Aramco, and purporting to have successfully hit its target.

MEI reported Maj. Gen. Ahmed Saif Al Yafei, the deputy chief of general staff of Yemeni forces, said at the time the drone had been smuggled in by the rebels from Iran after government troops trapped them on the coast. But the coalition has repeatedly shown itself unable or unwilling to credibly investigate its own abuses.

Trump Has Visited His Golf Courses 13 Times as President
Social media users were quick to point out that the President travelled twice to a golf resort in Virigina over the weekend. For Trump, who usually spends his weekends at his "Winter White House" in Mar-a-Lago, this seemed groundbreaking.

Hodeidah, which is located in the territory under the control of Houthi rebels, serves approximately 70% of Yemen population, which is almost entirely reliant on imports of food and other goods and is now in a state of severe food insecurity emergency.

JIAT has released the initial results of its investigations into 14 coalition attacks - about a paragraph on each strike - but refusing to concede fault in the bombings since August 2016.

The Houthis ousted Hadi and seized control of northern Yemen, including Sanaa, in September 2014. The coalition denies responsibility.

On several research trips to Yemen, the organization has documented at least 34 airstrikes by the Saudi Arabia led-coalition that appear to have violated worldwide humanitarian law, killing at least 494 civilians, including 148 children, across six governorates (Sana'a, Sa'da, Hajjah, Hodeidah, Ta'iz and Lahj). Recent history has shown that the Monarchy will not hesitate to use its influence in the United Nations to push through its own agenda. Riyadh recently floated the idea of the United Nations taking control of the port, something the worldwide body has ruled out. Under Saudi leadership, the 41-nation Islamic Coalition is equipping our countries to fight violent extremists by training our security forces and sharing information and intelligence.

And, Craig adds, it might even inspire the United States to assume a more active role in Yemen.

In an HRW letter to the Saudi-Led JITA dated January this year, the NGO also urged Riyadh to explain why JIAT does not appear to have examined a single attack involving cluster munitions.

Andrew Smith concluded: "We are always being told that the United Kingdom enjoys a strong influence over Saudi Arabia".
