London, Washington under pressure to halt arms sales to UAE
British and American authorities have been complicit in killing nearly 1,000 civilians, including over 120 children in Yemen, a new report has revealed.
The report published by the US-based University Network for Human Rights (UNHR) and Yemeni monitoring group, Mwatana, investigated 27 apparently unlawful airstrikes launched in Yemen by the Gulf alliance between April 2015 and April 2018.
According to the findings, US or UK made weapons were used in the 27 strikes, killing at least 203 people and injuring nearly 750, including 120 children and 56 women.
The investigation recommended for both countries ‘to halt arms sales and military assistance to Saudi Arabia and the UAE, who used the weapons in a ruinous four-year conflict there.’
