As in Syria, Saudi Arabia has the same goals in the War on Yemen as ISIS does. The brutal Saudi-led attacks have killed thousands of civilians in Yemen and millions more face death by starvation. Still, the world awaits the results of a UN-brokered peace conference beginning today in Switzerland.
Following the delay, the Saudis announced on Tuesday that a ceasefire in its War on Yemen had started. Both sides of the conflict, according to Saudi officials, are now prepared to enter UN-brokered peace talks in Switzerland.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia shook up the geopolitical landscape of the Middle East and its effort to battle ISIS in Syria and Iraq by declaring a newly formed 34-state Islamic military coalition to combat terrorism.
Of course, Iran and Syria are not members of the Saudi military coalition.
