U.S., U.K. Should Not Remain ‘Complicit’ While Saudi Arabia Commits War Crimes In Yemen

Al-sabah Al-Yemeni

“Let’s be blunt: With U.S. and U.K. complicity, the Saudi government is committing war crimes in Yemen. … Human Rights Watch has repeatedly concluded that many Saudi airstrikes were probable war crimes and that the U.S. shares responsibility because it provides the Saudis with air-to-air refueling and intelligence used for airstrikes, as well as with much of the weaponry. Yet victims … aren’t on our television screens and rarely make the news pages, in part because Saudi Arabia is successfully blocking foreign journalists from the rebel-held areas. … ‘The situation in Yemen is a disgrace that brings shame to our global community,’ says Michelle Nunn, president of Care USA. ‘More than 20 million Yemenis are in need of emergency assistance, and a child dies every five minutes. Yet few Americans know about the daily bloodshed, near-famine conditions, and a raging cholera epidemic.’ … Jan Egeland, a former senior U.N. official who now leads the Norwegian Refugee Council, urges an immediate cease-fire, a lifting of the embargo on Yemen, and peace talks led by the U.N., the U.S., and the U.K., forcing both sides to compromise.
