      (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia announced on Tuesday it was ending a month-long campaign of air strikes against the Houthi rebels who seized large areas of Yemen and said it would back a political solution to bring peace to its war-ravaged neighbor.
      Hopefully hostilities come to an end. But my guess is given the political instability inherent in Yemen it probably won't. There is still fighting going on as of now.

        Even if the Saudis stop the strikes it won't stop the fighting. Al-qaida made some gains recently so their battle with the Houthis will undoubtedly escalate.

                Regarding the poll , i think its saudis fault , their actions have risen dramatically the deaths of average citizens , im not saying they dont have their own justifications but definitely their priorities where faulted , if we see rise of al Qaeda footholds by the result of huthis demise then we know at who to point finger ...just saying .

                  I think this situation is getting worse not better, even with the news that the air portion is limited

                      Interesting documentary its gets different sides of the war Sunni Tribes, Houthis, and Al Qaeda.

                      The hypocracy on both sides of this fight is astonishing.

                        Iran warned over 'rebel arms' cargo
                        America's defence secretary fears Iranian ships heading towards war-torn Yemen may be carrying advanced weapons for the Houthi rebels - and says moving a US aircraft carrier to the region gives the president options.

                        Making his first public remarks on the Iranian cargo ships, Ash Carter was not prepared to say whether the US would be willing to forcibly stop and board one of the Iranian ships if it tried to cross into Yemen.
                        "We have options," he said when asked about the boardings. "We're not at that point. We're at the point of trying to get the parties back to the table."

                            Saudi-led coalition jets hit Yemen targets two days after announcing an end to air strikes

                            Sanaa (AFP) - Saudi-led coalition warplanes struck several Yemeni rebel positions in fresh raids overnight, witnesses said Thursday, two days after the alliance announced an end to its month-long aerial campaign.

                            The raids hit rebel positions close to the capital Sanaa, around the third city Taez, and in the central town of Yarim, the witnesses said.

                              Weird, why would Saleh leave? The Houthis has the upper hand right now
