Yemen / by Michelle Ryan

Yemen’s Houthi leader accused the United States (US) of providing logistical support and political cover for Saudi-led air strikes. The United Kingdom announced it would increase its humanitarian aid to Yemen, bringing the total to GBP 100 million. Human rights activists were outraged by the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council’s decision to decline the establishment of an independent inquiry into abuses in the Yemeni war. The Houthi offered a border truce to Saudi Arabia, in addition to an amnesty for Yemeni fighters in return for a halt in air strikes and a lift of the near blockade on the country. Over 25 people were killed and 70 wounded in a Saudi-led coalition strike in the port city of Hudaydah. The US killed 13 al Qaeda operatives in three counterterrorism strikes in Yemen. Saudi-led coalition strikes killed over 21 civilians in northern Yemen. Arab central banks supported the exiled Yemeni government’s decision to relocate its central bank to Aden. Yemen’s Aden oil refinery resumed its operations after being shut for over a year.
