Unparalleled Suffering of Yemen
After almost three years of war, Yemen’s people are facing unparalleled suffering.
All parties to the conflict are repeatedly committing violations against civilians and prolonging a war which exacerbates the largest humanitarian crisis in the world. As a major arms supplier and key ally to Saudi Arabia, the UK is complicit in Yemenis’ suffering, and the UK must use all its leverage to end it.
The UK can no longer support Saudi Arabia in its bombardment of Yemen. When the Saudi Crown Prince visits, Theresa May must clear that the UK’s continued support is contingent upon three things. He must:
- Stop attacking civilians
- End all blockages on vital imports
- Work towards a ceasefire and a political solution
