UK Profiting from Yemeni People’s Suffering: Human Rights Watch

UK Profiting from Yemeni People’s Suffering: Human Rights Watch

Alwaght- Britain is profiting from the suffering of Yemeni people at the hands of Saudi regime, - Human Rights Watch (HRW) said in a press release on Tuesday.

The prominent rights group remarks came after a London High Court ruled earlier on Monday that UK's arms sales to Saudi regime were not illegal, ignoring Yemeni people dire situation under Riyadh two-year-old aggression .

The HRW rebuked the judgment as "deeply disappointing" and "terrible news for Yemeni civilians", adding that "Had the High Court ruled in favour of Campaign Against Arms Trade, it was hoped that UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia would have been suspended – at least temporarily – and thereby help to pressure Riyadh to end its unlawful attacks in Yemen".

The organization said it had identified at least 81 unlawful attacks conducted by the Saudi-led coalition on schools, markets, hospitals and homes.

In March 2015, the Saudi regime and its allies, backed by the US, began a military campaign against Yemen to reinstall its former government. The war has killed over 13,000 civilians since then.

The war-stricken country is also grappling with the cholera epidemic, which has surpassed 300,000 cases and continues to spiral out of control since it erupted in April.

However, British Prime Minister Theresa May has recently licensed £3.5 billion worth of arms export to the Saudi regime.

On May 20th, 2017, US President Donald Trump has also signed a US$350 billion arms deal with the oil-rich Kingdom that drew international criticism. .
