President Trump praises Saudi Arabia for taking action against ISIS

President Donald Trump praised Saudi Arabia on Monday for its military intervention in Yemen to help stem the flow of fighters from the country.

The Saudi-led coalition has taken the fight against Houthi rebels in Yemen’s capital, Sanaa, to the northern part of the country, and has been bombing the Houthis since March, with American warplanes bombing targets in the Saudi-controlled Yemeni provinces of Saada and Hodeidah.

The United States and its allies have been bombing positions held by the Houthi-Saleh alliance in the country’s northern region of Jizan, including several air bases and military barracks.
