The US State Department recently announced that Trump had lifted a ban on the sale of weapons to foreign armies by signing a decree.

The United States has supported the aggressor coalition in the Yemeni War since the beginning of the Saudi coalition invasion of Yemen (March 2015) by providing intelligence assistance and arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

The Saudi coalition's attacks on Yemen have led to the destruction of infrastructure, expansion of poverty, unemployment and the spread of infectious diseases in this poor country.
