    After President Donald Trump’s first raid ended with at least 30 civilians and a member of Seal Team Six dead as well as a village left severely damaged, Yemen has pulled permission for the U.S. military to conduct ground operations against terror suspects on its territory, according to a report from CNN. That is, in short, not good.

    The U.S. military would have to secure its permission first before conducting future operations, as Yemen government officials told CNN. One of the officials, who spoke to CNN on the condition of anonymity, said that Yemen did not want to lose America as an ally,“but their actions and killing of innocent civilians are putting us in the hot seat in front of our people.”

    Pro-Saudi's "goverment" also not good to civilians. Murdering of innocent is their pattern. They are anti-human and people of Yemen don't want them.
    So, may be, it was not mere usual murdering, but something special, something in American style.
    May be, "goverment" is liying and don't want Yank's "help" becouse of another reason - for example, they don't want to annoy Russians.
