THE United Nations security council unanimously adopted a resolution on Sunday night demanding that Yemen’s Shi’ite Houthi rebels relinquish control of the government.

Arab countries have been pressing for the use of military force against what they call the rebel group’s “illegitimate seizure of power.”

But the resolution approved by all 15 council members does not sit within Chapter 7 of the UN Charter, which would allow it to be militarily enforced.

The resolution demands that the Houthis “immediately and unconditionally” withdraw forces from government institutions and engage “in good faith” in UN-led peace talks.
