US House Limits Trump’s War Powers Against Iran

WASHINGTON:The US House of Representatives voted on a resolution that aims to limit President Donald Trump’s ability to make war on Iran.

The largely symbolic measure seeks to mandate congressional approval for any conflict with Iran, except in cases of an imminent attack against the US.

The Democratic-held House passed the resolution, 226 members voted in favour and 193 against the resolution.

Neither the US nor Iran have declared plans for further military action.

Iran this week fired missiles at Iraqi bases housing American forces, injuring no-one, after the US last week killed a senior Iranian commander in a Baghdad drone strike.
