🇾🇪 US calls for the end to the Saudi-backed war in Yemen | Inside Story

Enough is enough – is the message from the United States to the warring parties in Yemen.
The Americans want a halt to more than three years of combat between Houthi rebels and the Saudi and UAE led coalition supporting Yemeni government troops.
The US Defense Secretary is calling for a ceasefire by the end of the month.
The United Nations is welcoming the US appeal to replace combat with compromise.
But the American message to Saudi and Emirati allies could fall on deaf ears.
Thousands of reinforcements have been sent this week to the rebel-held city of Hodeidah – its the major port for the massive amounts of food and aid needed to keep millions of Yemenis from starving to death.
But with many failed peace efforts in the past, will this time be any different?
