Amnesty urges US to halt arms sales to Saudi Arabia and UAE

On Friday, Amnesty International called on the US administration to "stop supplying arms to the Saudi-led coalition, which has repeatedly committed horrific violations in Yemen, some amounting to war crimes, devastating the lives of thousands."

The statement came following reports that US President Donald Trump will expedite arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE without Congressional approval.

Philippe Nassif, the advocacy director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International USA said: 
“This administration has made clear its desire to sell more weapons without concern for human rights. We know arms manufactured in the United States have been used in deadly strikes against civilians. U.S. munitions have been found in the remains of bombed homes, hospitals and hotels throughout Yemen’s devastating war, killing almost 7,000 people.”
