Yemen: UK Complicity in War Crimes

Speaker: Massoud Shadjareh, Chair of Islamic Human Rights Commission
The Saudi-led coalition has committed war crimes in Yemen. The coalition forces have done little to distinguish between military and civilian targets, with the Yemeni civilian population the main victims of this conflict.
Both the UK and the USA are complicit in facilitating breaches of international humanitarian law by the Saudi-led coalition through their military sales in relation to cluster munitions. The UK continues to provide Saudi Arabia with military equipment in violation of its own obligations under international law.
