Saudi Major General: US Congress unable to stop our military operations in Yemen - English Subs

Middle East Observer
In a recent political talk program on RT Arabic, Saudi Major General Abdullah Ghanem al-Qahtani played down growing efforts in the US Congress to end American involvement and support for the Saudi-led coalition's war in Yemen.

President Trump vetoed a bipartisan resolution to cut off U.S. military aid to the Saudi-led coalition fighting in the war in Yemen, which has killed an estimated 85,000 children due to famine.

This was the first time Washington lawmakers sent a president legislation under the War Powers Act to end U.S. involvement in a conflict abroad, and it marks only the second veto of Trump’s presidency.

Al-Qahtani also said that Saudi strategy is based on stopping "Iranian terror" in Yemen, in the form of a "militia similar to Hezbollah", in reference to the popular Saada-based Anasrullah movement and its allies.
