According to NBCnews,


The United States will soon suspend its mission to re-fuel Saudi Arabia’s military aircraft flying in Yemen, according to two U.S. officials and one Senate staffer.

I would think it means to stop using refueling aircraft, like a KC-135 to refuel the planes.

Why would the US help Saudi Arabia defeating a small nation like Yemen, supplying refueling airplanes?

Do they supply them with satellite photos too ?

What is the purpose ?

I only read about the US doing refueling missions for Saudi aircraft. This link has some General giving reasons about "why" somewhat.
Refueling Saudi aircraft

It's fairly old news.

Well there has to be some use for it and a reason why now, right? Why stop now just because? It's not like it is new stuff we all have learned, this is coming from years ago anyways

We've been helping Saudi wage war on civilians over in Yemen via intelligence, weapon sales, and refueling their aircraft. I believe we've been giving them mid air refuel support. I guess they haven't bought the gas planes yet from us?

Saudi A330MRTT.

RSAF KE-3A.

The Saudi Air Force has had their own tankers for many years. The USAF makes it a point to work with allies using tanker support because no one else in the world even begins to come close to our number of tankers. They need to ensure our allies are qualified to use our tankers in case they ever have need of them, just like our aircraft use our allies tankers at times.
